THE ENDER UNIVERSE

The First Formic War Series: One hundred years before Ender's Game, the aliens arrived on Earth with fire and death. These are the stories of the First Formic War.
The Authorized Ender Companion: A complete and in-depth encyclopedia of all the persons, places, things, and events in Orson Scott Card’s Ender Universe.
Ender's skills make him a leader in school and respected in the Battle Room, where children play at mock battles in zero gravity. Yet growing up in an artificial community of young soldiers Ender suffers greatly from isolation, rivalry from his peers, pressure from the adult teachers, and an unsettling fear of the alien invaders. His psychological battles include loneliness, fear that he is becoming like the cruel brother he remembers, and fanning the flames of devotion to his beloved sister. Back on Earth, Peter and Valentine forge an intellectual alliance and attempt to change the course of history.
This futuristic tale involves aliens, political discourse on the Internet, sophisticated computer games, and an orbiting battle station. Yet the reason it rings true for so many is that it is first and foremost a tale of humanity; a tale of a boy struggling to grow up into someone he can respect while living in an environment stripped of choices. Ender's Game is a must-read book for science fiction lovers, and a key conversion read for their friends who "don't read science fiction."
Ender's Game won both the Hugo and the Nebula the year it came out. Writer Orson Scott Card followed up this honor with the first-time feat of winning both awards again the next year for the sequel, Speaker for the Dead. --Bonnie Bouman
The story is interesting and compelling, and the characters are very well written.
I recommend Enders Game to any reader, because Mr. Card is able to make the main character Ender, relate to the reader and make the story seem real.
This is a great book I really liked the character development, you really feel like you know all of them by the end of the book.
An amazing story from an amazing imagination. Unlike any sci-fi story I've ever read and left me needing more of Enders story.Published 6 hours ago by Cavebaby29

I am an avid reader who loves intellectual thrillers. Too often nowadays, cheap fiction is put in the hands of our youth. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Elizabeth Dixon
Just... Orson tells a very good tale, the only issue falls in time discrepancies between the movie and the book, however, that is to be expected. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Sharon Fletcher
I saw the movie before reading the book. READ THE BOOK. The book is far more interesting and entertaining than the movie. Read morePublished 2 days ago by Dan
