Ender’s Game Book Review

Ender's Game Book CoverI just finished reading “Ender’s Game“.

Ender’s Game (1985) is a science fiction novel by American author Orson Scott Card. The book originated as the novellaEnder’s Game“, published in the August 1977 issue of Analog Science Fiction and Fact. Elaborating on characters and plot lines depicted in the novel, Card later wrote additional books to form the Ender’s Game series. Card released an updated version of Ender’s Game in 1991, changing some political facts to accurately reflect the times.

I really enjoyed reading this book. The story keeps presenting you with twists and turns that you don’t see coming. I am not a big fan of reading science fiction. Never have been. I have always preferred to watch it. Star Trek, FireFly, Red Planet, all great Science Fiction. But reading it has always been a difficult concept to me.  So I think it says something that this is a Science fiction book I could read. Not only read, but enjoyed a lot.

While writing this post I have been doing some reading ont he author Orson Scott Card. I have to say that I am not to impressed by the man himself. Sadly, this is affecting wether or not I will go on and read the sequel books.

Book Review: The Time Machine

The Time MachineI just finished reading “The Time Machine” by, H. G. Wells. It seems like this should have been a book I should have read as a class assignment when I was in highschool. But regardless that I am now 28, a good book is still a good book no matter your age.

I truely enjoyed reading this book. The way it was writen was very beautiful.

The book’s protagonist is a scientist and amateur inventor living in London who is never named; he is identified simply as The Time Traveller. Having demonstrated to friends using a miniature model that time is a fourth dimension, and that a suitable apparatus can move back and forth in this fourth dimension, he builds a full-scale model capable of carrying himself. He sets off on a journey into the future.

Until I read this book my only ideas of what the future might hole where somethings I took from Star Trek, or the movie Back to the Future. But this book opened my mind to so many other possabilities that our future my hold. It was a really good read.
