Ender's Game (and other Orson Scott Card books)

Post by Nyxaeterna » Wed Jul 27, 2016 10:37 am

So, Ender's Game is one of my top favorite books, as well as the rest of the series. To give a brief summary, Ender's Game takes place in the ambiguous near-ish future, about 80 years after Earth has been invaded by a hostile and devastating alien species called the Formics (named due to their loose resemblance to giant ants, commonly called Buggers). Earth was nearly destroyed by the invasion, only barely surviving thanks to the genius of one commander, Mazer Rackham. Long since having realized that genius must be cultivated and people must come together, the International Fleet recruits young, genius children into their Battle School, a highly specialized military school orbiting Earth. Ender is one such child, one who has the potential to be the greatest commander the International Fleet has seen since Rackham himself.

This book (and series) explores many themes and philosophies, including many explored in the Animorphs series. I highly recommend them to all fans here!

Anyone else a reader of the Enderverse?

I loved Ender's Game, read it around 5 years ago, still remember it, so it must have been an experience. I didn't read any other books in the series, but I ought to.
