Maxim Jakubowski's view...

A young boy with awesome powers is controlled by the state and taken to a strange military school where his skill with games is manipulated with dreadful consequences as part of a deadly war between mankind and an alien race. Although the novel (which initiated a series) is a frantic page-turner, it also raises endless questions about morality, the nature of evil and can also be used as a perfect introduction to the challenges of SF for younger readers.

The film version of Ender's Game is released in UK cinemas on Friday 25 October 2014. Click below to view the trailer.

Synopsis

Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card

The human race faces annihilation. An alien threat is on the horizon, ready to strike. And if humanity is to be defended, the government must create the greatest military commander in history.

The brilliant young Ender Wiggin is their last hope. But first he must survive the rigours of a brutal military training programme - to prove that he can be the leader of all leaders. A saviour for mankind must be produced, through whatever means possible. But are they creating a hero or a monster? This is the multiple award-winning classic ENDER'S GAME - a groundbreaking tale of war, strategy and survival.

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

Linda Rollins

Pam Woodburn

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.

Sarah Bruch

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
