    1. I think that this is the right order for reading the Ender and Shadow series chronologically Start with Ender s Game Ender Book 1 , then read Ender s Shadow Ender Book 5, an alternate telling of the events in Ender s Game from the viewpoint of a character who is fully as interesting as, if not interesting than, Ender himself , and finally read the rest of the Shadow series, starting with Shadow of the Hegemon Ender Book 6 After you ve finished the currently published as of 2008 Shadow books, yo [...]

    2. Ender s Game has to be one of the best sci fi books of all time, in my opinion A lesson taught well in this book is that reality never fits into a box We must react according to the situation that we find ourselves in Instruction and educations goals are then to equip us with the basic rules upon which we will need in making future decisions However, that being said, this book, like most science fiction literature presents us with a world where man is alone God is left out of such tales, which l [...]

    3. Ender is an astonishingly clever young child whom has to face factors of life unusual to a youngster as him His methods and ideas are credible and very well based and thought of by the author since it is all based on his imagination It is a good book starting at one point and concluding in other but not disappointing Any literate person would agree It is truthfully a piece of entertaining science fiction accompanied with a signal of literature which may not want to be picked up but once finished [...]

    4. 9 24 15Ender s GameBy Orson Scott Card I think that Ender s Game is a Realistic Fition, because Earth was invaded by Buggers Humans defeated the Buggers 50 year ago, but by a landslide Now, Humans believe that the buggers will attack again Now the I.F is test kids to see if they can become a commander against the buggers Ender pasted the test to go to Battle School He is only six when he leaves for battle school He eventually climbs the rankings to become the best soldier in battle school Most k [...]

    5. It is an interesting and well acted representation of a novel that has withstood the tests of time and changing paradigms with good reason.The novel ender s game was very interesting and it was a lot of action and good words that was involved in the novel.

    6. I liked all 5 books where the first two were absolutely amazing The main issue I had was that while the first book was nearly purely science fiction, it drifted, as the series progressed into science fantasy, where the likelihood of it occurring diminished significantly.

    7. I read Ender s Game years ago when I was in a sad, I ve read everything Vonnegut has ever written and I need some new good science fiction to read there must be something out there funk I remember it being pretty OK I picked up Ender s Shadow the other day and I m reading that now So far it s a little less than OK We ll seeOh fine, so I got into the story again What can I say I m a sucker for some science fiction conflict between young brilliant space cadet minds It s like readable pizza You can [...]

    8. like Ender s Shadow this book did not disappoint it really made me think about power and nations and how intricate world politics really is i felt that the book was very relevant in today s shaky economic and world affairs and i simply just love Bean and the other characters that we came to love in Ender s Game After finishing the entire Saga i am just overwhelmed with my attachment to these characters and the world that seems so similar to the world we live in today i don t think i have ever be [...]

    9. It deal with Bean and Petra Arkamian They just got home and everyone she known is how some weird person at the door Bean had no idea that he even had a family so everyone he s meeting is new to him petra goes to Greece with her family and so does Bean They find each after they was an attacked were they were at so they rush to so what happen it war between Greece china so how they have to find a team to help them stop this war Bean and petra get captured and move to Thailand They have to fight on [...]

    10. So, I had to put the boxed set I actually only read Ender s Game, but either I missed it, or doesn t have it for whatever reason The lovely Kirsten Hubbard recommended this book to me, and I m glad she did, because it was pretty awesome Sci fi, but so much than that And completely disturbing because the whole time you re remembering that the main character in this book, learning how to fight battles and be ruthless, is a very young kid.

    11. This is one of the best fantasy series out there It gets very political as the books progress Its about a futuristic society where battles are fought against alien invasions on earth Only the smartest are chosen to train for battle commanders This series is mainly about a boy genius named Ender and his mental journey of eventually discovering that its the humans who are the cause of the war.

    12. I read this to see why my boys found it so enthralling and I couldn t put it down I can see why it appealed to them with the video game like training and also the real time combat practice in an enormous zero G chamber both of these activities designed to groom children for war The reader can t help but identify with the main character as his innocence is systematically deceived and purposefully destroyed in the fanatical pursuit of a misguided higher ideal Sucker punch ending.

    13. This is a futuristic book that follows a young boy in training to become a commander in an intergalactic war Card writes of the trials and triumphs Ender must deal with almost constantly It is hard not to become attached to the young boy throughout the story Card keeps the story moving and keeps his readers locked in until the end.

    14. This is, hands down, my favourite sci fi series series spinoff series The protagonist of Ender s Game, Ender, is faced with difficult decisions and constant mental torment as he plays battle simulation games in order to train to save Earth from an alien species.

    15. I am not a sci fi fan, but this book Ender s Game had me reading to the end I love the games they play and the creativity that Ender and his friends have.I read the hole series and the rest was dissapointing to me.

    16. Not that great as far as sci fi goes And I m a sucker for sci fi I liked the futuristic geopolitical issues it presented Strongly recomend to any IR freaks Unlike most, i thought ender s game was the weakest of them.

    17. My first sci fi series, and holy hell, incredible Card is a romantic with a spine, and the way he evolves these characters throughout the story is just amazing I d recommend to ANYONE with an imagination.

    18. I have only read Ender s Games I enjoyed it but, didn t LOVE it I think the all the hype around this book made it too big for it s britches The ending was predictable but, the characters were likable Everyone tells me to read the others but, they don t seem very appealing right now.

    19. I love the mix of sci fi and psychology in these books The characters draw you in and make you wander what will happen to them and how they will change the world I also like the different viewpoints offered by the letters at the beginning of chapters These books are a fun, imaginative read.

    20. Ender s tactical skills at computer games have not gone unnoticed by the military He is recruited to fight a proxy war against an alien race of sentient ants The Ender trilogy is an arc of war hero to instrument of genocide, and the road to redemption A must read for sci fi fans.

    21. This is a really great book series with tons of action and violence It is written by the mormon author, Orson Scott Card I read it for LEAP ap reading at school and it was surprisingly good To truly understand this book you must have a large vocabulary and good imagination.

    22. I loved this continuation of the Ender series, told from the perspective of Bean Of course, there are even books in the series, but they are not available for review here I read them all, though my favorite of the Bean books is definitely the first, Ender s Shadow.

    23. I read Ender s Game Might read the rest later, but that was enough war games and strategy for now Thought it was very well written, interesting and had lots of surprises, though not surprised at the outcome Enjoyed listening to the author s review at the end.

    24. One of the best series I have ever read, if not the best From Enders game all the way to the most recent of the series.

    25. One of my favorite fiction series of all time, but the first book of both Ender s Game and Ender s Shadow are especially good.

    26. Bean is SO COOL I loved learning about his past and how he becomes such an integral part in winning the war of the races.
