REVIEW: Enders Game by Orson Scott Card

My Rating: 8 out of 10 stars

Wow, this was a great book. I'm not usually a huge sci-fi fan... I like it here and there, but could usually take it or leave it. Based on a friend's recommendation, I decided to take her advice and give this book a read and I'm glad I did.

I usually expect sci-fi to either be written over my head, in terms of physics and all that which I never took in school, or else just dull and bland appealing only to trekkies and the like. ;) So I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I wouldn't say it was dumbed down, but it certainly didn't expect it's readers to have a background in physics or astronomy either. :) I've got the second book in the Ender series, Speaker for the Dead waiting here for me too. I'm not sure that I'll read it next as too much of a good thing, and all that... I may have to get a supernatural fix of witches, vamps, or werewolves in first. *grin*
