Breve biografia
Orson Scott Card is the author of the novels Ender's Game, Ender's Shadow, and Speaker for the Dead, which are widely read by adults and younger readers, and are increasingly used in schools. His most recent series, the young adult Pathfinder series (Pathfinder, Ruins, Visitors) and the fantasy Mithermages series (Lost Gate, Gate Thief, Gatefather) are taking readers in new directions.

Besides these and other science fiction novels, Card writes contemporary fantasy (Magic Street, Enchantment, Lost Boys), biblical novels (Stone Tables, Rachel and Leah), the American frontier fantasy series The Tales of Alvin Maker (beginning with Seventh Son), poetry (An Open Book), and many plays and scripts, including his "freshened" Shakespeare scripts for Romeo & Juliet, The Taming of the Shrew, and The Merchant of Venice.

Card was born in Washington and grew up in California, Arizona, and Utah. He served a mission for the LDS Church in Brazil in the early 1970s. Besides his writing, he teaches occasional classes and workshops and directs plays. He frequently teaches writing and literature courses at Southern Virginia University.

Card currently lives in Greensboro, North Carolina, with his wife, Kristine Allen Card, where his primary activities are writing a review column for the local Rhinoceros Times and feeding birds, squirrels, chipmunks, possums, and raccoons on the patio.

Veramente un bel fantasy con un pizzico di fantascienza. Scritto bene e con personaggi accattivanti. E' il primo di una trilogia, come al solito si va con la speranza che traducano anche gli altri.

Forse un po' il capostipite del genere "scuola di guerra", romanzo famosissimo e vincitore Hugo e Nebula, è un bel romanzo avvincente e scorrevole che si fa leggere con curiosità e passione.
Personalmente però l'ho trovato anche un po' ripetitivo nelle molte descrizioni degli allenamenti di Ender ma più che altro veramente eccessive le digressioni per descrivere gli stati d'animo sia di Ender che degli altri bambini/allievi, cosa che impregna il romanzo di una vena "psicologica" piuttosto pesante e noiosa.… (altro)

Molto carino, avvincente e scorrevole.
Una bella storia ricca di avventure e situazioni con molte idee originali che permettono anche riflessioni di una certa "importanza".
Un po' esagerati alcuni "poteri" acquisiti dal protagonista ... ma direi che sono finalizzati alle riflessioni suddette.

E' un libro per ragazzi che può essere letto dagli adulti con interesse. Anche questo come altri libri di fantascienza non ha un taglio futuristico ma prevalentemente introspettivo senza una precisa collocozione spazio-temporale. Una sottile analisi del rapporto insegnante/allievo nelle sue più estreme forzature rende la lettura coinvolgente.
