  • The first half of this book is good but at the same time I found myself having a hard time getting into it

    • by David Finniss


      This book is good, damn good actually. It is a book that appeals to younger readers without talking down to them, it raises issues for discussion without forcing it or setting it up so that professors can just make stuff up to make themselves sound smarter, and it has real and believable characters.

      If you’re not familiar with the book, it takes place in an Earth where population has been regulated and

      the world is at war with an alien race called “buggers”. Enter “third” Ender Wiggin, who’s been recruited to the government’s training facility to help fight the alien menace. The book chronicles Ender’s trials as his schoolmates and teachers push him to his physical and psychological limit and beyond.

      Many say that this should be required reading in schools. I agree, it’s a great piece of literature. The thing ...

      • is that the whole premise of the book is predicated on the idea that school is a nightmare so I find it rather ironic that people are so quick to proclaim it be read in schools when it is very much anti-school.

        The first half of this book is good but at the same time I found myself having a hard time getting into it. This was not the case

        with the second half. When Ender starts to own anyone who challenges him while still hating his situation and beginning to break down it becomes a book you can’t put down. If you want to get someone into reading, this is the book to do it. It’s a classic piece of science fiction that lives up to the title of classic and appeals to readers of all ages, child and adult alike.
