Enders Game Review
 by Matt

Enders Game was a very good read/listen, if you don't know I generally listen to books from Audible rather than read them.  It is easier for me because it gives me something to do while I drive to work or workout in the fitness center.

Anyway, Enders Game is about a young boy name Andrew Wiggins, he lives in the future and was monitored by the government since he was a baby to see if he has the ability/capability to fight against the aliens called buggers.  The earth was attacked 80 years earlier by the buggers but found a way to repel them.  However, now the fear is the buggers will return, so the earth is preparing for the second wave and looking for leaders and warriors to help beat them.

Andrews nickname is Enders, hence Enders Game.  Ender is chosen to attend special training to help him become a fighter pilot in the battle against the buggers.  Enders game takes you through his training, which Ender excels at. The training uses war games and computer simulation to provide situations that may occur during war with the buggers.  I really liked how the author told the story, Ender is manipulated to train and fight.  It has an interesting ending and I would recommend it especially for younger readers.
ps...
definitely a boy book:)
