Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review 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 Superb! This is Card at the height of his very considerable powers--a major SF novel by any reasonable standard. -- Booklist An affecting novel full of surprises. Card never makes the mistake of patronizing or sentimentalizing his hero. -- The New York Times Book Review
