Today’s book review is brought to you by my daughter, Autumn. She asked for more practice at posting and reviewing so here’s her take on Ender’s Game.
Guest Book Review by Autumn
You now how in Middle School you have to start summer reading? Well, this year I decided to pick Ender’s Game out of the four I could choose from. It sounded great – aliens, a nice sci-fi, right? Boy, was I wrong.
The book started out boring and it never got better. I thought about just choosing another book but I was set on giving it a chance, maybe it would get better. It didn’t. Ender is so whiny, Peter is just a very cruel kid, and Valentine is annoyingly sweet and kind. I was dreading reading the book everytime I went to read it. On top of having to read it, I had to take notes on it, even better.
Finally, I was able to finish the book but it took me forever to read it. I mean, FOREVER. I think it took me around 2 months and in total probably over 12 hours of reading and taking notes. That is how much I HATED that book. Normally it will take me a week or two to read a book around 300 pages long depending on how much I like it. I have never, EVER read a book that took me that long to read.

The Verdict on Ender’s Game
This book gets a 1 star, I would give it -99999999999999999 stars but that isn’t possible so a 1 star will have to do. I can’t believe that there are actually, sequels to this book and just so you know, I will not be reading ANY of them. The only characters I actually liked in that book was Bean and Mazer Rackham.
