Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card

Alan Serrano The Lorax by Dr. Seuss

The Lorax by Dr. Seuss Http://

The Lorax was an awesome book. I definitely know that children will like the book because of all of the strange animals, drawings, and the way the whole world looks like. The book was about a man that went to the forest full of truffula trees to start a business making strange things called thneeds. A thneed was made out of a truffula tree. Right when the man cut off a tree, a weirdly looking odd thing came down from the sky and told him that he is hurting the forest. The man, only young and naïve ignored the Lorax and continued with his business. But little did he know of what he was causing to the forest and all of the animal life that was there.

I thought the book was incredible by the way Dr. Seuss made the sentences rhyme for the entire story. The book also contains the strangest things as for animals, such as the Bar-ba-loots. They are only one of the strange types of animals in the book. They are little bear like things that like to eat and are completely harmless to others. Dr. Seuss has a mind like no other.

I thought the can be perfect for children. The book isn’t long like others I have read but not all short stories are horrible. This one was fun, amazing, and “something else” compared to other children’s books. I would recommend this book to anybody that likes a good story but doesn’t like to read too often. If you really think about it, the book is outstanding.

Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card

This was by far one of my top three favorite books. My thought of this book was amazing and incredible. I would recommend this book to anybody that likes science fiction and has awesome imagination. I am not much of a huge reader, but Ender’s Game kept me hooked ‘till the end. The book is about a young boy named Ender Wiggin that was chosen at age six to go into what they call battle school. Battle school is a sort of military school for young ones. Ender would go through a lot at battle school and would always be watched by the people that ran battle school because they sensed something in him that could help them win the war between humans and aliens. In the book, the aliens are called buggers and had attacked the humans first long ago. That is why they are in this war and the buggers had always dominated but every time they were close to winning, the humans always pushed through to the end. Now, they think that Ender has something special in him that could possibly help them end and win this war.

I thought the story of Ender Wiggin was unbelievable. He is an amazing strategist and super smart. He can even fight from how quick he is with his brain. But the life of Ender Wiggin is very sad too. He had to leave his family at age six. He had an amazing relationship with his sister Valentine and threw it away when he left to battle school. She was practically his only friend at the time. He spent most of his childhood at battle school. It was hard for him to make friends at first because commander Graff talked about how Ender was better than everybody in front of everybody. Eventually, he does end up making lots of friends but they leave him slowly, one by one.

Ender’s life was rough at such a young age. Commander Graff would make him train for such long period of times with little breaks. He would always be pushed over his limits. He would also have bullies trying to get him. Ender Wiggin would never get what he really wanted in life. He would always be ordered around to do things. Ender’s life is like none other compared to all of mankind. But I don’t think he will ever be as happy as he used to be. I enjoyed the book a lot more than I thought I would. I definitely recommend this book to anybody that is thinking about reading it.
