Book Review — Ender’s Game (Ender’s Quintet #1) by Orson Scott Card

Ender's Game (The Ender Quintet, #1)Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow.

It’s a shame they don’t let you give more than 5 stars, because Ender’s Game would deserve it.

If you are reading this and haven’t read Ender’s Game, stop what you’re doing and find a copy ASAP.

Seriously though.

Just over 300 pages, this just may be the most complete stand-alone novel I’ve ever read. It does everything well: action, plot, characters, and world-building.

I’m excited for the movie because the graphic novel proved that the story is still interesting even though we can’t really see it from Ender’s POV.

But the best part is undoubtedly the time we spend in Ender’s head, hearing his thoughts and witnessing his transformative journey.

It’s unlike anything I have read before. I cried at the end for Ender, and to develop that kind of connection in so few words is a testament to Orson Scott Card.

Ender’s Game is legendary, simple as that.
