Meet the Author

Orson Scott Card is best known for his science fiction novel Ender's Game and its many sequels that expand the Ender Universe into the far future and the near past. Those books are organized into the Ender Quintet, the five books that chronicle the life of Ender Wiggin; the Shadow Series, that follows on the novel Ender's Shadow and are set on Earth; and the Formic Wars series, written with co-author Aaron Johnston, that tells of the terrible first contact between humans and the alien "Buggers".
Card has been a working writer since the 1970s. Beginning with dozens of plays and musical comedies produced in the 1960s and 70s, Card's first published fiction appeared in 1977 -- the short story "Gert Fram" in the July issue of The Ensign, and the novelet version of "Ender's Game" in the August issue of Analog.
The novel-length version of Ender's Game, published in 1984 and continuously in print since then, became the basis of the 2013 film, starring Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley, Hailee Steinfeld, Viola Davis, and Abigail Breslin.
Card was born in Washington state, and grew up in California, Arizona, and Utah. He served a mission for the LDS Church in Brazil in the early 1970s. Besides his writing, he runs occasional writers' workshops and directs plays. He frequently teaches writing and literature courses at Southern Virginia University.
He is the author many sci-fi and fantasy novels, including the American frontier fantasy series "The Tales of Alvin Maker" (beginning with Seventh Son), as well as stand-alone science fiction and fantasy novels like Pastwatch and Hart's Hope. He has collaborated with his daughter Emily Card on a manga series, Laddertop. He has also written contemporary thrillers like Empire and historical novels like the monumental Saints and the religious novels Sarah and Rachel and Leah. Card's recent work includes the Mithermages books (Lost Gate, Gate Thief), contemporary magical fantasy for readers both young and old.
Card lives in Greensboro, North Carolina, with his wife, Kristine Allen Card. He and Kristine are the parents of five children and several grandchildren.

This is a great book for fans of science fiction, and adventure. I would recommend it for older readers though as it does have some intense fighting scenes and some language that might make younger readers uncomfortable. The story is also told with three different narrations. One is Ender, one is Ender's teachers, and the other one is about Ender's siblings. I am not a huge science fiction fan, but I did enjoy this book. I listened to it on audiobook by Recorded Books which I felt made it easier to understand who's narration I was listening to/reading. I really enjoyed the interview with Card at the end of the audiobook as well.

The whole point of that part of the book is to show how poorly his brother treats him. This book is amazing, and if you would read farther on, I think you would understand that. Ender's Game is a book made up of hundreds of sentences, just like any other. You cannot base your opinion of a book off of one quote from one part of said book.

On page 14 of a hardcopy edition of this book there is a quote I must read to you, "I'm going to kill you and chop you in to little pieces and put you in the garbage hole!" His own brother Peter says that to him. Is that not horribley cruel? I have to read this for my stupid Advanced English class. It is such a horrible book! I seriously recommend not reading this book. Oh, and isn't this a cool sword? ===]:::::::::::::::::::::::>
