While searching for a book outside of my comfort zone, I thought I would try some science fiction. Google searches for the Top 10 titles in the genre led me to Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. What an unexpected surprise. I loved it. The style, the story, everything. A brilliant young boy is chosen by the government to train on a space station to hopefully become commander of the military and fight the alien army. The training is in the form of military games, at which he excels. But will he be ready to lead when the aliens return?
