My article on Ender’s Game is in the new National Review.
I teach at a college, so I’m constantly around young people. Ender’s Game is one of the books they are most likely to have read outside of school — a shared text for a generation that doesn’t have many. Even Mitt Romney raves about it: In 2011, he listed Ender’s Game as a favorite book, alongside The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. So this is a novel worth knowing, no matter what Card’s detractors say.
