Ender’s Game

I think Ender’s Game, by Orson Scott Card, is a sci-fi classic.  The concept of children as warriors, and the Battle Room where they hone their strategic and tactical skills, make the novel stand out from your standard science fiction fare.

I always feel some trepidation when a book that I’ve enjoyed gets made into a movie — but when it’s going to happen, all you can do is grit your teeth and hope that the Hollywood process hasn’t totally ruined what you liked about the story.  Ender’s Game will be hitting the big screen this fall, and the trailer looks pretty good.  The movie features Harrison Ford and Ben Kingsley in key adult roles, and a newcomer, Asa Butterfield, as the young Ender Wiggin.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

  1. What – another Hunger Games?

    I’m just happy to see that Dan Brown mentioned Columbus, Ohio in his new book “Inferno.”

    As always, we enjoy the plethora of webnerhouse posts. Thank you WB (I obtained permission from elroyjones to use that handle for you).
