NZ Review <b>Praise for Ender's Game</b></p> A harrowing look at the price we pay for trying to mold our posterity in our own aggressive image of what we believe is right. --<i>The Christian Science Monitor</i></p> A book with deep and complex sensibilities. --<i>Houston Post</i></p> A gripping tale of adventure in space and a scathing indictment of the militaristic mind. --Library Journal</p> This is Card at the height of his very considerable power--a major SF novel by any reasonable standard. --<i>Booklist</i></p>
