May Meetup

Let's read some science fiction! This month's selection is Ender's Game, by Orson Scott Card.  Here is a short description:

Ender Wiggin, the third in a family of child geniuses, is selected by international military forces to save the world from destruction.  At Battle School, located on a ship far from earth, Ender and other students train to fight an alien enemy (nicknamed 'the buggers').  Ender  quickly advances through the military ranks to become leader of a child army.  Will Ender be able to save earth?  Read the book to find out!

Hope to see you there!

    Thanks Amy - I'm a newbie. The book sounds interesting but I'm sure I can't get it read by tomorrow. :)

    I have a union event that just came up that I need to attend, so I won't be at the meeting on Thursday May 2. I'm sad to miss it, as I found the book interesting and I think it'll be a good discussion. See you all in June!

    I really like Kafka. I wrote a paper on him.

    Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card is very good.

    I've got a copy of Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka lying around that I haven't read--I'd be interested in reading that! Anyone else have any suggestions?
