THE ENDER UNIVERSE
Ender's Series: Ender Wiggin: The finest general the world could hope to find or breed.
Ender's Shadow Series: Parallel storylines to Ender’s Game from Bean: Ender’s right hand, his strategist, and his friend.
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 --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
The story is interesting and compelling, and the characters are very well written.
The story will make readers think that the impossible is just the opposite, and after reading this book, they will never know which way the ground really is.
I found myself feeling the same things as Ends's character did throughout the book.
I really enjoyed this book despite it making me feel exhausted and overwhelmed at times. Definitely can see why it's part of the school curriculum. Read morePublished 1 hour ago by causeimrussian

This book is about terrible, horrible things, truthfully. The destruction of a human spirit; the genocide of a species; murder; manipulation; and greed. Read morePublished 1 day ago by York
The characters (the kids, anyway) were sympathetic and detailed enough to be believable. The theme of military education/boot camp (one of my favorite themes) with a looming war... Read morePublished 1 day ago by M. Molinaro
