Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

An affecting novel full of surprises. Card never makes the mistake of patronizing or sentimentalizing his hero. The New York Times Book Review
A pleasure to listen to. Refreshing, highly entertaining and fast-paced. Orson Scott Card is a phenomenal writer. USA TODAY
Superb! This is Card at the height of his very considerable powers--a major SF novel by any reasonable standard. Booklist
“Read Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game before the big-screen adaptation, starring Harrison Ford and Hugo's Asa Butterfield, hits theaters Nov. 1. Entertainment Weekly, 13 Ways to Get Ready for '13
Ender’s Game is a must-read book for science fiction lovers, and a key conversion read for their friends who ‘don’t read science fiction.’” Amazon.com, editorial review
“This is a wonderful way to experience Card’s best-known and most celebrated work, both for longtime fans and for newcomers.” Publishers Weekly (audio review)
