"Card has taken the venerable sci-fi concepts of a superman and interstellar war against aliens, and, with superb characterization, pacing and language, combined them into a seamless story of compelling power. This is Card at the height of his very considerable powers—a major sci-fi novel by any reasonable standards."-Booklist

"Card does a fine job articulating Ender's inner struggle between the kind, peaceful boy he wants to be and the savage, violent actions he is frequently forced to take." -Publisher's Weekly
"Ender's Game has an interesting narrative style. Card has placed descriptions where appropriate, and he always narrates in an exciting manner. One way he provokes tension in the book is by having an unidentified narrator at the beginning of every chapter."-Guardian News and Media
"Ender's Game follows a busy, unpredictable, action-packed plot, but the end of the novel is still sad and strong enough to make us reflect on our behavior and on the book's events. It is also gripping and exciting, and the reader never knows what will happen next."-Guardian News and Media
