Ender's Game (Ender Wiggin Series #1)

Ender's Game (Ender Wiggin Series #1) -

Ender's Game is mostly a series of summaries of Ender's life events - his journey to becoming a great saviour to humanity. He is a military prodigy, handpicked by a host of impotent military strategists who believe that only a sapling, carefully nurtured and trained, can be the best military leader out there to bring about the end of a bug scourge threatening planet Earth. Old military men putting all their chips on ten year old Ender, the boy being incredibly brilliant but morally conflicted commander like a war veteran, and his tween siblings wresting the public's political opinion through the NET, Ender's Game far-fetched storyline is the ultimate children fantasy playing pretend. As an adult, I feel the story is ridiculous. If I were a child, or if I can suspend my disbelief like a child, I would call this story amazing. I'm just glad I managed to finish this before the film comes out and see what the prowess of film making can deliver on screen.
