kids, wargames and tigers. (MEOW!) this is ender's game. 

author: orson scott card
title:
ender's game

"Shivering? Trembling? Don't wet your pants, little Launchy." Rose hooked a finger over the butt of Ender's gun and pulled him to the forcefield that hid the battleroom from view. "We'll see how well you do now, Ender. As soon as that door opens, you jump through, go straight ahead toward the enemy's door."

little six - eight year olds playing soldier saving earth from a not so friendly alien civilization. i was introduced to the book by a clanmate and was basically told "IT RULES ALL PANTS OMG READ IT OR DIE! :D?" well that certainly pushed me towards reading it, anything that states it would rule pants is good in my book or pda or erm.. yeah. i love the book, the nasty mind games that the adults pull to manipulate these children ahh but these children are the cream of the crop like super uber smart children that would possibly be able to think themselves out of a box.

"Human beings didn't evolve brains in order to lie around on lakes. Killing is the first thing we learned. And a good thing we did, or we'd be dead, and the tigers would rule the earth."

meow. ender's game is really well detailed, i mean like from the zero gravity army game that they play to the simulation machine that ender uses. so detailed i was able to imagine being there with ender, watching him going through his emotional roller coaster which is his life. i seriously felt bad from him. ahh the odd mix of characters that i fell in love with, specially bean(imagine a wise cracking hardcore 4 foot toddler).. haha. the characters blends in soooo well with the storyline i haven't read any other book that comes this close. after all ender's game was a trilogy which spawned another four books after the trilogy ended. i've finished the trilogy and it just taste soo good. i envy new readers(of this series), its a whole experience that i'll treasure along with the various porn collection and bike crashes. ahh.. memories.
