Ender's Game is a mediocre book at best.
Am I the only one to think this? The plotting and characterisation is crap and the dialogue is pure exposition and is awful. Every chapter is the same pattern and none of the characters change at all really, they are just agents of the plot.
It's Starship troopers fascism mixed with cold war paranoia with a sprinkling of freshman philosophy. It feels horrendously dated by now as-well. It seems to be adored by neckbeards who have read an extremely limited number of books.
I do love good science fiction and Never let me go is one of my favourite books. But enders game is not a good book at all.
