Ender’s Game: More Than Just a Young Adult Sci-Fi Novel

My youngest son at age 14 is a very wide reader. He is very much into young adult science fiction books so it’s no surprise when he bought the best-selling Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card. I saw the film trailer first before I realized it was the book that my son has recently purchased so I became really curious about how the story goes.



I started flipping through the pages and discovered how exciting and thrilling the book was. Even if it is tagged as a young adult fiction book, I think thrill-seekers and lovers of science fiction novels will definitely love the storyline and the characters of this book. The story basically revolved around the life of Ender Wiggin, a student leader in a school like no other – the Battle School.

This Battle School is found in space and the kids who are taken there must learn to fight at zero gravity. The kids are trained physically and mentally to strategize, fight and win against competing teams in all odds. The immense mix of heroes and villains, as well as the twist and turns of events also made the novel a sure favorite among the younger generation. From an adult’s point of view, the novel will pique your curiosity on how children would really think and act, but I guess for the younger ones, this book best gives their thoughts a chance to rear free beyond what’s imaginable.

I love hiking just a short one, I cant go to high that needs a day to complete it , my legs are not good for a long hike plus I get too excited about what scenery is waiting for us :) were planning to hike the Appalachian Trail hopefully sometime in Fall.

To see Mount Kilimanjaro is a dream. But to climb? This lampa is not geared and built to do it hahah. Someday soon, I hope to just see it and just roam around the place, hunt and bring home Tanzanite gems.

Some of my friends here managed to visit the base of Mt. Kilimanjaro during their trip to Africa. None of them attempted to climb nor join the others who climbed because they were not trained and prepared for the climb and they knew too well the risks involved if you trek the mountain without proper training.

Perhaps, I should be prepared on this climb physically and mentally. But I don't think I can do this right now. The Mt. Kilimanjaro looks beautiful though! :D

Not so long ago, I aimed of becoming a mountain climber. I attended the first Basic Mountaineering Course but never made it to the climb. I think I'm just too fainthearted to take the plunge. I just realized activities like these is never for me.

This is a good place for mountain hikers. I tried one time mountain climbing during my college days in Baguio and I made a vow to myself I'll never do it again. My whole body ached the next day.

I've been hearing a lot about Kilimajaro. It will be great to see such lovely place but it needs more training to do that. Maybe someday.

I really agree with you ate na yung isusuot is important. Mountaineers should consider safety first when it comes to preparing what to wear as they climb different mountains. Kailangan talaga yung shoes ang iconsider.
