ENDER'S GAME

What is Ender's Game?


"Intense is the word for Ender's Game. Aliens have attacked Earth twice and almost destroyed the human species. To make sure humans win the next encounter, the world government has taken to breeding military geniuses- and then training them in the arts of war. . . The early training, not surprisingly, takes the form of games. . . Ender Wiggin is a genius among geniuses; he wins all the games. . . He is smart enough to know that time is running out. But is he smart enough to save the planet." - The New York Times
From the the previous quote, you can probably tell Ender's Game is a fast-paced, intense, sci-fi book that takes place in space. Although, you do not have to like sci-fi books in order to like Ender's Game. Yes, people who like sci-fi books will like Ender's Game more but this book really doesn't go into much details about the aliens, it is very good story and I think most people would like it.And according to
The Globe and Mail
, "Ender's Game is a guaranteed crowd pleaser" Ender's Game is an action packed book for all people, and will defiantly make you top 5 favorite books. Ender's Game has so much action in it you will never get tired of reading it. (even though it is a pretty long book)
Things I Like
This book is full of things that I like. First of all space fascinates me very much, so I would naturally like a book that takes place in space. I also enjoy books that are full of action and Ender's Game is definatly full of action. For example, "But they let go of him. And as soon as they did, Ender kicked out high and hard, catching Stilson square in the breastbone. He dropped". Suspense is another component of books that I like, and Ender's Game is very suspensful; in Ender's game there are a lot of fights and life attempts that you are unsure of how they will turn out, which can be very suspenseful. Also not knowing when the alien attack that will possibly wipe out the entire human race will come can be a little suspenseful. I also just enjoy the story, it is a good story that you just have to know the end.
Things I Dislike
written by: Orson Scott Card
prezi by: Natalie
Fun fact: Ender's Game is a Hugo winner, Nebula winner, and New York Times bestselling author
Overall I thought Ender's Game was a really good story. There wasn't much that I didn't like. But nearing the end of the book there was just this really boring part of Ender's training that went on forever and got a little boring. Honestly that was the only point that I was not really fond of.
Writer's Craft in Ender's Game
In Ender's Game I found a lot of writer's craft. Foreshadowing was one of them. There were parts, in bold, at the beginning of each chapter that foreshadowed, or gave you an idea, of what was going to happen in the next chapter. For example "All right. We're saving the world, after all.Take him" was at the beginning of chapter 1. And those sentences gave you and idea that the people talking were going to save the world, and take someone. And in chapter one the people did take someone. The author, Orson Scott Card, is also very good at describing things. One reason he is so good at describing things is because he uses similies and metaphors. Here is a descriptive sentence with a simile from his book: "won't split her head with a beam so hot that her brains burst the skull and spill out like rising bread dough"(kind of gory though). Near the end another writer's craft Orson uses is a plot twist. It changes the story, and you defiantly understand the title Ender's
GAME. But I think there were 2 plot twists, the one where you find out why it is called Ender's Game, and the one where Ender's perspective on the aliens chages forever
Recomendations
Really anybody would like Ender's Game, especially if you like action books, sci-fi books, or intense books. Although, I would not recommend this book to squeamish people, because as you can tell, from the quote about blasting someones brains with something so hot that their skull will explode, this book has a lot of blood and gore. Thins book is intense and action packed and based on what what is popular today (Divergent, Hunger Games) a lot of people will like Ender's Game
Comparisons
This book really does not compare to anything I have read before. Although, in both the Hunger Games and Ender's Games kids are abused and forced to do stuff against their will (in Hunger Games kids are forced to fight to death, and in Ender's Games kids are pushed beyond their limits in battle school and command school and are forced to fight very hard). This book may not remind me of other books but it does remind me of Super 8 the movie. Both things are sci-fi and very action-packed. Plus in the end both protagonist's perspective about aliens change
Ender's Game is a fast paced, action packed, sci-fi movie, that anybody would like. On a scale from 1 to 10, I would give this book a 10 for its suspense, action, plot, and plot twist. I think Ender's Game is a superb book , and I like practically everything about it. Lots of people would like Ender's Game. It is full of writer's craft and if you like Super 8 the movie, I am pretty sure you will like Ender's Game. Ender's Game is one of the best books I have ever read
Fun Fact: Ender's Game is now a movie, check out the tralier on the next slide
