Plot synopsis: A 6-year old, martial prodigy, Ender, is taken to a military academy in space where he plays games designed to mold him into the admiral who will save Earth from an iminaent space invasion by a superior alien force.
What I liked about Ender's Game:
- Boosted my EQ
- Good action
- Inspires resourcefulness
- Cool SF concepts
- Explores individual responsibility
- Writing that seemed too 'adult' to be from a child's point of view
- Side story that seemed specifically designed to get you to buy the next book in the series
- Tended towards 'fantasy' aspects of sci-fi as opposed to 'hard sf'
