Ender's Game (Ender's Saga, #1)

Ender's Game (Ender's Saga, #1) - Orson Scott Card Repetitive descriptions of battles I didn't care much for, main plot too distracting, with side-stories that are much more thought provoking, a couple of twists to amaze kids, because they aren't amazed enough by Ender’s all-round amazingness… Even when he’s bad, he’s amazingly bad. But he’s a kid, and he gets fooled, and it all turns out well afterwards, but not completely… and then! some really interesting issues start emerging… but the book ends, and I need to read the sequel… well, no, I don’t think I will… but what I thought was a solid 3 star book got an extra star for asking interesting questions and not pretending to know the answers. I like this open-ending.
