- Clarence Oddbody, AS2, It's a Wonderful Life
They made a movie from the novel Ender's Game! Woohoo! I can't wait to see it...though I trust it will be a great movie, I'm not going to reread the book until after I see the movie so that I'm not disappointed. Movies are not normally as good as the books. They're movies. :-)
Have you read Ender's Game? I read it in High School for my Senior English class. (I know. Cool English teacher, right?)It's about a boy named "Ender Wiggin" who gets recruited for Battle School. Battle School is on a space station that orbits the earth and they train children for eventual leadership and combat in the war against the "Buggers". Most of the book takes place in Battle School and young Ender must learn battle tactics, strategy, as well as surviving his peers and the faculty. There's much more to it than that, but you would have to read it to understand.
It's one of the best books I've ever read and I would highly recommend it. If you haven't read it, I would suggest you read it BEFORE you see the movie or read any reviews or talk to anyone about it. I can't explain it now. Just trust me. If you talk to anyone who has seen it or read any and I mean any review, there will be a major league spoiler. Because the movie chooses to let the audience in on something that the reader doesn't know until the end.
If you have read it, you know what I'm talking about, please preface your comments about it with a "Spoiler Warning".
Go read it.
You'll thank me.
You're welcome in advance.
