The First Review

Since this is my first review, I thought I would start with an uncommon book. Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card is a fantastic book full of aliens, betrayal, and some pretty insane plot twists. The main character, Ender Wiggin, is forced into a world of loneliness when he is sent to battle school at age five. This isn’t just any battle school though. This school is thousands of miles into space, giving the students no way to communicate with their friends and family back on Earth. You begin to sympathize with Ender as he grows and matures far faster than any little boy should. He overcomes challenges that most people wouldn’t dream of, believing that battle school is a game. But is it really?

Without realizing this was a book, I went to see the movie first. And it was incredible! After reading the novel, I realized that the movie followed the book, but had it’s own details that made the same story great in two different ways. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who asked.
