Description

Ender's Game is a 1985 military science fiction novel by Orson Scott Card. Set in Earth's future, the novel presents an imperiled mankind after two conflicts with the "buggers", an insectoid alien species. In preparation for an anticipated third invasion, children, including the novel's protagonist, Ender Wiggin, are trained from a very young age through increasingly difficult games including some in zero gravity, where Ender's tactical genius is revealed. The VR 'games' Ender plays are fascinating in themselves, but it is perhaps the juncture of play versus reality that shine through, whether it is the way in which he is being analysed through his performance and actions - or the blurring of what is real and what is happening in a fantasy world. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ender%27s_Game
