This book kept popping up as a recommendation and for whatever reason I kept overlooking it - I honestly think because of the cover art portraying a child. I assumed it was a "young" YA novel that I wouldn't really be interested in, but boy was I WRONG! I sort of happened upon some of the reviews and after reading so many positive ones I decided to give it a try and I have now added Ender's Game to my very short list of all-time favorites. This book is so beautifully written and delivers one of those rare stories that have such a powerful impact that they stay with you forever. I can't imagine anyone not falling in love with this book.
