GALLERY: Ender's Game Review

Critics received Ender's Game well. The novel won the Nebula Award for best novel in 1985, and the Hugo Award for best novel in 1986, considered the two most prestigious awards in science fiction. Ender's Game was also nominated for a Locus Award in 1986. In 1999, it placed No.  59 on the reader's list of Modern Library 100 Best Novels. It was also honored with a spot on American Library Association's "100 Best Books for Teens. " In 2008, the novel, along with Ender's Shadow, won the Margaret A. Edwards Award, which honors an author and specific works by that author for lifetime contribution to young adult literature. Ender's Game was included in Damien Broderick's book Science Fiction: The 101 Best Novels 1985–2010. New York Times writer Gerald Jonas asserts that the novel's plot summary resembles a "grade Z, made-for-television, science-fiction rip-off movie", but says that Card develops the elements well despite this "unpromising material". Jonas further praises the development of the character Ender Wiggin: "Alternately likable and insufferable, he is a convincing little Napoleon in short pants. "

Upon entering his outer space “Battle School”, Ender finds he has been tapped by the gruff Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) as the chosen one who may save mankind. Of course this means that Ender’s life in school must be a grueling hell – being viewed as an outcast while simultaneously being pushed harder than any other cadet to achieve and excel beyond all measure. But the more Ender learns about what makes a great commander, the more he realizes that those same lessons are crafting him into the sort of person he never wanted to become.
