Hello

Hi! Im new (way to state the obvious, huh?). There is a really awesome book called Enders Game  By Orson Scott Card, has anyone ever heard of it?? It had to read it for school, and it rocks. Im not good with summaries (hey! i introduced myself as 'im new' didnt i?) so this is the summary right off the back...

"Intense is the word for Enders Game. Aliens have attacked earth twice and almost destroyed the human species. To make sure humans survive the next encounter, the world government has taken to breeding military geniuses- and then training them in the art of war. The early training, not suprisingly, takes the form of 'games'. Ender Wiggin is a genius among geniuses; he wins all the games. he is smart enough to know that time is running out. But is he smart enough to save the planet?"

I dont really think that does it justice though... This book is more young adults, and so are the sequels, but I think that the sequels are more intense. Enders Game is pretty much all about Ender the sequels get more into other culturs and religious. Orson Scott Card actually sounds like a genius in the sequels (not that he doesnt in Enders game...) b/c he has all of these theories and things that are going on that need explaining. Well, I just stongly reccommend it. its science fiction btw..

Wow, thats long. ^_^;; Enough of my ranting.. Hi.
