Tolog Review: Ender's Game

Ender's Game 
by Orson Scott Card
reviewed by Sofia Sierra

"I think it's impossible to really understand somebody, what they want, what they believe, and not love them the way they love themselves." Ender Wiggins (Ender's Game). In the novel, Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card, a young boy by the name of Ender Wiggins is accepted into a battle school that’s purpose is to train young children how to defend the world from an opposing force called the buggers. Throughout his time, he climbs the rankings and also learns the dark secrets of the school. The writing style of the novel is very descriptive and intricate. It uses lots of large words and words that the average person would not use on a regular basis. This just seems to draw the reader into the pages. The characters have so much depth to them, even though they are mostly all children. They have a maturity that lots of other children characters do not have. The characters just seem to connect the the readers. In all, the novel gave an amazing insight on how society seems to turn the innocence of a child into something much darker.
