Book 34: Ender’s Game

ender'sgameEnder’s Game (Ender’s Saga  #1) by Orson Scott Carro

 

This was definitely out of my usual book list(wh-aat it was published in 1984! ha) , but it came greatly recommended, and I hear it is being made into a movie. And I liked it. Ender (cool name bro) is the pint sized protagonist, he is uber smart but is also a contemptible Third (third child born, when the government has sanctioned only two children per family), seeing as I also have a cool E-name, am smart (or so I like to believe) while also being the third child of my family, I liked him right away. The battle school simulator seems like it would be super fun to play with, but I don’t think I would have been any good at any of the games. He saves the world,and makes everyone around him love him but I think my favorite character would have to be big sister Valentine. She was able to kick him out of his funk, and keep Peter in check.

 

Quotes:

“Sometimes lies are more dependable than the truth.” (2)

“He’s still a slumbitch.” (150) haha Val what a good insult.

“He couldn’t read it, of course, but he knew what it was. Battle. How kind of them. I ask and they deliver.”(176) Oh Ender how flippant of you.

“Ender mentally added him to his private list of people who also qualified as human beings.” (184) Hahahahaha I loved this line.

So I got back from my vacation a few days ago, but I’m still very much in vacation mood.  I usually do some reading during the traveling portions of vacation, but not this time, so I am kinda behind on my reading list.  I thought I’d share this photo of my current library haul.
