Books - Review

Ender's GameEnder is a small boy born in a future Earth society under constant threat from an alien race, known, gratingly, as the 'buggers'. Ender is identified as having astonishing abilities at an early age, and is taken off to battle-school at age 6. His life then becomes a constant round of training and simulation games aimed to prepare him to lead the ultimate battle against the buggers on behalf of the whole of mankind. His similarly gifted siblings remain on Earth and carry out their own scheme for political world domination.

Excellent. Written in a simplistic style, but with a cracking storyline, and a great twist at the end!
