Ender's Game (Ender, Book 1)

Ender's Game - Orson Scott Card Rearead 5/31/13

This is probably one of the best paced books I've read in a very long time (or at least since the last time I read this one). All the characters, even the fairly minor ones, are well drawn, have unique voices and are necessary props or foils for the hero. There are no throw-aways here not in the form of characters nor in the form of scenes. Every interaction and every event shapes the hero until he has been honed into what he needs to be - an Ender.
