I found this book very drawn out, it could of been written with half the pages. There were parts that kept me reading and then there where parts I read just to get to the next part. Overall the book was alright. I may be giving this book a slanted review but only because
I don’t usually read Sci-Fi genre books. If you are into Sci-Fi I could see you really enjoying this book. So I recommend this book to people who enjoy Sci-Fi books. I do not recommend this to people who don’t enjoy Sci-Fi.
The setting was confusing for me and always changing.
The plot had potential but never really, jumped out at me.
The character development was good and you were able to see the progression as the story moved on.
The theme was VERY Sci-FI, not my genre so I don’t want to criticize it.
I didn't notice much literacy skill in this book, it seemed like it was written by a high-schooler.
I give this book three stars, based on the fact that I didn’t like it. The book was very bland for me and if I wasn’t forced to read it I probably would not of read it. The main character “Ender” also seemed very un-realistic, he did not act like a kid his age would. This made the story feel fake.
I am sorry if I am giving a wrong portrayal of this book. Remember, just because this book didn’t do it for me, does not mean it won’t be enjoyable for you. Give it a try and if in the first four-five chapters you are not happy then you can stop.

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 ...
