Ender's Game

When I was based in Germany, I found that the Army shops didn't stock the books I read. Sci-fi. So when I was home in England on leave, I used to pop into London down to Denmark St and shop at the Forbidden Planet in which to stock up on science fiction books. I would spend over a £100 on books and then post them to myself in Germany. One of the books I read, loved and have read so many times since, was and is Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. To say this book blew my mind is an understatement. The book is a masterpiece, and what do you know, they are making a film about it. Thing is, can they carry it off? I hope so.
