Title
: Ender’s Game
Author
: Orson Scott Card
Genre
: military science fiction
Synopsis
: This is an

imaginary story that sets in Earth's
future
. The novel presents an imperiled mankind after two conflicts with the "formics", an insectoid alien species. In preparation for an third invasion, a branch of children who are chosen were trained at a very young age through increasingly difficult games. The war with the “formics” has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway almost as long. The six-year-old boy,
Ender Wiggin
, is one of the students in military command school. Ender's two older siblings are
Peter and Valentine.
(Peter is the symbol of ruthlessness but Valentine is the symbol of compassionate.)
The rest of book shows about how Ender becomes an extremely excellent soldier and how the war between
human and “formics”
starts in an unexpected way…
Recommendation
: Ender’s
game
is an affecting novel that is full of adventure. It begins with a
lie
. The most interesting part is children are learning how to move in zero gravity or how to offense and defense even though losing direction. I really admire Ender’s excellent intelligence, ability and courage. However, the book also reflects human’s greed and Ender’s regret to the “formics”. The amazing book encourages me to think about the
human behavior
.
The role of children: they are capable not only of killing, manipulating, and hating—the worst features of adults—but also of creating and helping
