9780765337542: Ender's Game (Ender Wiggins Quartet)

Winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards

For the perfect holiday gift for the reader on your list, pick up this special gift edition of one of the most beloved Science Fiction novels ever written.

Andrew "Ender" Wiggin thinks he is playing computer simulated war games at the Battle School; he is, in fact, engaged in something far more desperate. Ender is the most talented result of Earth's desperate quest to create the military genius that the planet needs in its all-out war with an alien enemy.

Is Ender the general Earth needs? The only way to find out is to throw the child into ever harsher training, to chip away and find the diamond inside, or destroy him utterly. Ender Wiggin is six years old when it begins. He will grow up fast.
But Ender is not the only result of the experiment. The war with the Formics has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Ender's two older siblings, Peter and Valentine, are every bit as unusual as he is, but in very different ways.

Between the three of them lie the abilities to remake a world. If, that is, the world survives.

Ender's Game is the winner of the 1985 Nebula Award for Best Novel and the 1986 Hugo Award for Best Novel.

Review:

"Layers fold with immaculate timing, transforming an almost juvenile adventure into a tragic tale of the destruction...."

"[A] powerful book about war, that ranges in topic from reflex-training video games to combat between our inner-and other-directed selves...."

Praise for "Ender's Game": "Card has taken the venerable sf concepts of a superman and interstellar war against aliens, and, with superb characterization, pacing and language, combined them into a seamless story of compelling power. This is Card at the height of his very considerable powers -- a major sf novel by any reasonable standards." -- "Booklist" "Card has done strong work before, but this could be the book to break him out of the pack."--"New York Newsday"
""Ender's Game" is an affecting novel."--"New York Times Book Review
"
"Card's latest novel is both a gripping tale of adventure in space and a
scathing indictment of the militaristic mind." --"Library Journal"
"A prize-winning novella has been transformed into an even more powerful book about war, that ranges in topic from reflex-training video games to combat between our inner- and other-directed selves....This book provides a harrowing look at the price we pay for trying to mold our posterity in our own aggresive image of what we believe is right." --"The Christian Science Monitor
"
""Ender's Game" is a fast-paced action/adventure but it is also a book with deep and complex moral sensibilities. Card constructed the book so that layers fold with immaculate timing, transforming an almost juvenile adventure into a tragic tale of the destruction of the only other sentient species man had discovered in the universe." -- "Houston Post"
"ÝA¨ powerful book about war, that ranges in topic from reflex-training video games to combat between our inner-and other-directed selves...."
