Winner of the Hugo and Nebula AwardsIn order to develop a secure defense against a hostile alien race's next attack, government agencies breed child geniuses and train them as soldiers. A brilliant young boy, Andrew "Ender" Wiggin lives with his kind but distant parents, his sadistic brother Peter, and the person he loves more than anyone else, his sister Valentine. Peter and Valentine were candidates for the soldier-training program but didn't make the cut--young Ender is the Wiggin drafted to the orbiting Battle School for rigorous military training.Ender's skills make him a leader in school and respected in the Battle Room, where children play at mock battles in zero gravity. Yet growing up in an artificial community of young soldiers Ender suffers greatly from isolation, rivalry from his peers, pressure from the adult teachers, and an unsettling fear of the alien invaders. His psychological battles include loneliness, fear that he is becoming like the cruel brother he remembers, and fanning the flames of devotion to his beloved sister. Is Ender the general Earth needs? But Ender is not the only result of the genetic experiments. The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Ender's two older siblings are every bit as unusual as he is, but in very different ways. Between the three of them lie the abilities to remake a world. If, that is, the world survives.Ender's Game is the winner of the 1985 Nebula Award for Best Novel and the 1986 Hugo Award for Best Novel.

  1. En klassiker
    Joakim Laurén, 3 augusti 2015

    Jättebra bok ! Om man nu råkat missa denna klassiker i sci fi genren och tyvärr sett filmen först så är inte livet förstört för det .
    Man kan läsa boken också.
    Boken är dessutom som böcker brukar vara , väldigt mycket bättre än filmen.
    Du kanske tyckte att filmen var lite tunn och inte förklarade så mycket , då kommer du få ditt lystmäte .
    En liten varning tycker jag dock är på sin plats , köp resten av böckerna en och en om du inte är väldigt säker på att du vill ha dem , ... Läs hela recensionen

    Mycket bra och medryckande historia. Rekommenderar den för alla som gillar Science Fiction-böcker. Har dock ej läst hans andra böcker, men måste det nu efter jag läst klart Enders Game.

  3. Början på en lång Resa.
    / / Bean, 17 mars 2013

    Har läst boken nu 5 gånger. Lika bra nu som när jag först läste den som grabb. Glad att jag hittade den på en semester i rea lådan. I boken så följer man Ender på en hisnade resa. Från ung kille som har problem med mobbing i skolan, till ledare för planetens mest begåvade ungdomar. Tillsammans tränas dom under otrolig press till soldater för att kunna skydda Jorden i ett annalkande krig. Borde läsas av alla som säger att sci fi inte är för dom. Jag har själv läst ett enormt antal sci fi-böcke... Läs hela recensionen

"Card has taken the venerable sf concepts of a superman and interstellar war against aliens, and, with superb characterization, pacing and language, combined them into a seamless story of compelling power. This is Card at the height of his very considerable powers--a major sf novel by any reasonable standards." --Booklist
