A second monthly reading, again

Ender's Game, by Orson Scott Card

The book is described:  "Intense is the word for Ender's Game. Aliens have attacked Earth twice and almost destroyed the human species.  To make sure humans win the next encounter, the world government has taken to breeding military geniuses -- and then training them in the arts of war... The early training, not surprisingly, takes the form of 'games'... Ender Wiggin is a genius among geniuses; he wins all the games... He is smart enough to know that time is running out.  But is he smart enough to save the planet?"

NOTE:  THIS IS ANOTHER READING WHICH DOES NOT CANCEL THE REGULARLY SCHEDULED 2ND MONDAY EVENT.

    Just looked up the cast of the Ender's Game movie that's coming out in the fall. The youngest actor is 13-year-old Aramis Knight who plays Bean (age 6 in the book). A 14-year-old plays Bernard, and everyone else is 16-19 years old, including the actors playing Ender, Valentine, Peter, Petra, Alai, Dink and Bonzo. (A 19-year-old is playing the character of Stilson, who was six in the book!) Oh, and Major Anderson changed genders ... to be played by Viola Davis. Strange casting.

    Insightful, thoughtful discussion about a book I hadn't seen as multilayered until I explored it with the other members.

    Only 4 of us (out of 9 RSVP's) showed up, but the conversation was engaging, multi-layered, and insightful. Two new members added much to our discussion, and one member left with a better impression of the book than she came in with.
