Goodreads Sweepstakes: Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

October 1, 2013 Leave a comment

About Ender’s Game: Orson Scott Card’s beloved classic Ender’s Game is now a major motion picture.

Andrew “Ender” Wiggin thinks he is playing computer simulated war games; he is, in fact, engaged in something far more desperate. Ender may be the military genius Earth desperately needs in a war against an alien enemy seeking to destroy all human life. The only way to find out is to throw Ender into ever harsher training, to chip away and find the diamond inside, or destroy him utterly. Ender Wiggin is six years old when it begins. He will grow up fast.

This movie tie-in edition features cover art from the Summit Entertainment film starring Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley, and Asa Butterfield as Ender Wiggin.

Enter for a chance to win here!

(Ends October 30)
