L’ultimo attacco alla Terra da parte degli alieni risale a ottant’anni fa, tuttavia la guerra non è finita. Per scongiurare la possibilità che, un giorno, la razza umana venga cancellata da una nuova e ancor più devastante invasione, sono state costruite armi sempre più potenti e ideati vari sistemi di difesa. Inoltre, per sfruttare le straordinarie capacità di alcuni bambini, è stata creata una Scuola di Guerra, destinata a formare un’élite di geni militari. Ed è in questo luogo altamente competitivo, in cui si simulano al computer azioni belliche di ogni tipo e si elaborano tattiche e strategie di grande complessità, che viene portato Andrew «Ender» Wiggin: ha soltanto sei anni e lo aspetta un addestramento feroce in un ambiente spietato, ma lui è un genio tra i geni, nato con le doti di un superbo comandante. Ed è l’unico in grado di vincere tutte le «partite» combattute nella Sala di Battaglia. Ma qual è il prezzo da pagare per essere davvero il migliore? E dove finisce il gioco e comincia la realtà?

[I have a new website where I review awesome books & more! http://unlearner.com] I wanted to like Ender's Game. I really did. It's a wonder that even after more than halfway into the book, I still clung on to the foolishly optimistic notion that the book would somehow redeem itself. That it would end Leggi tutto
This was the first book I picked up and read all the way through in one sitting. Technically, it's not a difficult read but conceptually it's rich and engaging. "They have a word for people our age. They call us children and they treat us like mice." If you can't understand that statement, you probabl Leggi tutto
I read this story quite a while back with no special expectations. Like most books I read it just happened to be lying around the house. I read it, was hugely entertained, and went on to read three or four of the sequels. I've heard since all manner of 'stuff' about the author but what's true and wha Leggi tutto
Spoiler Alert*** God damn did I hate Ender’s Game. I checked out Amazon and can surely see why I wanted to give it a shot. Talk about a cult following of people absolutely smitten with it. I even read some where that it’s on the required reading list at Quantico. I suppose this book could be some kin Leggi tutto
I was savaged by a miniature poodle the other day--wait--no, someone protested my review of The Giver the other day. If you have any pent-up rage from that college lit teacher who forced you to think about books, be sure to stop by and spew some incoherent vitriol--my reviews are now a socially acce Leggi tutto
I read this novel because it was often the favorite novel of students of mine, and I wanted to understand why. I should mention that I love science fiction, and have read it avidly since I was barely more than a child. I'm not by any means some kind of anti-sci-fi snob. The first thing that bothered Leggi tutto
i think 'ender's game' is the only book i've read three times. for me books often don't have repeat reading value in the same way some movies have repeat viewing value. it's probably because a movie takes two hours of your time while a novel, for me, takes a week or longer. so for someone like to me Leggi tutto
This is a novel that blows past conventional ideas like "disbelief." Apparently humanity, a species whose only real claim to fame is war, now stinks at war, and can only be saved by a child genius who is one part prophecy, one part bad science, and one part wish-fulfillment. Thanks to this plan, we
This was a really good book. On its surface it is a great story about a young boy who goes through tremendous struggles. On another level it is a brilliant psychological character study and an observation of group dynamics. On still another level it was an intelligent allegory for violence and belli Leggi tutto
