    Ender's Game is about a slightly dystopian future where aliens attacked in the first and second bugger wars. To prevent a third invasion, the government created a battle school which manipulates and molds young children into ideal military commanders. Ender is a third, a name for a child who is the third child in their family, which is forbidden without special government permission. He is shunned and bullied by other children, until he is spirited away to battle school at the tender age of six. Will he survive battle school's elite training program and mind-warping mind games to become a commander? Will he save humanity from the buggers? Or will he "be iced" and become a failure? And the most worrying question of all. Who, or what are the buggers? And what do they want?

        This book was okay but i felt like it could have been more...exciting and some parts and emotions weren't felt. But overall, not that bad but I wish that there was a better plot.

              I LOVE science fictions and this book is just amazing. Since the first time I started reading it, I couldn't stop. I found it on the website and lots of people said it's a really good book, so I read this last year and it's absolutely a stunning and remarkable story. It's always a page-turner. I recommend the book to every single person I met because I think everyone should read it no matter what age you are.

                I read this story quite a while back with no special expectations. Like most books I read it just happened to be lying around the house. I read it, was hugely entertained. I've heard since all manner of 'stuff' about the author but what's true and what isn't I don't know and I'm not here to critique the man behind the keyboard. All I can do is report on the contents of the book and those I can thoroughly recommend you check out.

                    I love sci-fi, but this book is about this boy that goes to a military school to fight aliens called Buggers.

                      Is this anything like the maze runner series?
