Hello my fellow internet addicts! So sorry for going off the radar again, but I visited my friend Sofia and, alas, was without a computer for several days. Although, yes, I did briefly steal her computer, but I couldn’t exactly write an entire blog post in the span of 2 minutes. I’m good, but not that good.
Anyway, whilst I was staying at my friends house, I did get the chance to read a really great novel… Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card.
First off, I’m going to commend Mr. Card for his amazing literature – there are not that many author’s that can captivate an audience like he can. The way he writes is just fantastic, and I utterly love it – I couldn’t manage to tear myself away. He puts a new definition to the word “writer”.
Not only is the plot the work of a genius, but all the characters and the people around the story, contribute so incredibly much to how epic it is. You feel so much for Ender, but at the same time you understand why Graff (a sort of teacher) does what he does… at least, you understand towards the end of the novel.
Ender is so smart – and I guess that’s why I like the book so much. I like smart characters, who react the way a real person would react, and not just in a way that only makes sense to the author, but not to anyone else.
This book is really different from anything else I’ve ever read. I’m not the biggest fan of sic-fi – I’m a paranormal kind of girl – but this has really opened my eyes.
I’m giving this the most glowing recommendation I can possibly give.
I recommend this book to everybody who has ever been born and anybody who ever will be born.
I’m even going to go hunting for a hard-back edition of it, so I can have it for myself (the copy I read was the one I borrowed from the library).
Also, I heard that they’re making a movie (Yay! Jumping up and down in my chair squealing), so check out the trailer below:
Ah, so good!
See you later guys!
Anybody else read this book? Agree with me? Disagree? Let me know in the comments section below!
