Ender's Game is a complicated book. It's mostly about how to deal with bullying, but with many other threads. Published in 1985, it anticipates universally networked computers, global discussion networks, and complex computer games. It looks at shaping a person into a weapon, and has at its core the shifting battle games that make that possible. And then it has quite a long epilogue with a sad and hopeful conclusion. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0312937385, Hardcover)

Ender Wiggin, the hero and scapegoat of mass alien destruction in Ender's Game, receives a chance at redemption in this novel. Ender, who proclaimed as a mistake his success in wiping out an alien race, wins the opportunity to cope better with a second race, discovered by Portuguese colonists on the planet Lusitania. Orson Scott Card infuses this long, ambitious tale with intellect by casting his characters in social, religious and cultural contexts. Like its predecessor, this book won both the Hugo and Nebula Awards.
