Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Cared
What a great book! Though not a Sci-Fi fan by any stretch of the imagination, I really enjoyed this book! I listened to the uanabridged audio version and it was amazing (also recommended by the author - to listen to rather than read it). A story much more about moral dilemma, relationships, friendship, manipulation, and redemption than shooting buggers in a foreign gallaxy. A young boy, Ender,the protagonist, is immediately likeable and relatable. Very compelling as well! This was originally released as a short story in the 70's and written as a novel in the mid-80s. An oldy but a goody!
