Ender's Game is a book about a government program to defend the planet Earth from alien attack.

Ender's Game was interesting because it was not only SCI-FI themed, but it had substance. The book is really about a kid getting picked on and his dealings with such ridicule. It seems that at any one moment he could crack, in which he does multiple times. He does not receive punishments for the bad things he does, because the government wants him to be as mad as possible. To them anger equals power. This of course only fuels the other children's jealousy towards Ender.Ender's Game did an incredible job of explaining this futuristic story of a teenager who is being used to protect planet Earth against alien attack. I was impressed at the level of foreshadowing and job Orson Scott Card did communicating the anger in such a vivid way.I would have to say that out of all the books I have read over the past year this is my favorite. I would recommend this to anyone who likes science fiction as a must. But even if you don't it's still definitely an interesting read for it does not focus on geeky technology to tell the story. Instead it utilizes a young boy and his everyday problems as an adolescent. I think the most appealing part may be that most of us can relate to Ender.
