Science Fiction

In order to develop a secure defense against a hostile alien race's next attack, government agencies breed child geniuses and train them as soldiers. A brilliant young boy, Andrew "Ender" Wiggin lives with his kind but distant parents, his sadistic brother Peter, and the person he loves more than anyone else, his sister Valentine. Peter and Valentine were candidates for the soldier-training program but didn't make the cut--young Ender is the Wiggin drafted to the orbiting Battle School for rigorous military training.

Ender's skills make him a leader in school and respected in the Battle Room, where children play at mock battles in zero gravity. Yet growing up in an artificial community of young soldiers, Ender suffers greatly from isolation, rivalry from his peers, pressure from the adult teachers, and an unsettling fear of the alien invaders. His psychological battles include loneliness, fear that he is becoming like the cruel brother he remembers, and fanning the flames of devotion to his beloved sister.

Is Ender the general Earth needs? But Ender is not the only result of the genetic experiments. The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Ender's two older siblings are every bit as unusual as he is, but in very different ways. Between the three of them lie the abilities to remake a world. If the world survives, that is.

Winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards.

Re: Ender's Game

After all, from all sides will fly evil flies with J or W above them, and you
have to switch to the English layout and back. Well, when after all this,
along with other creatures, fat bosses creep out, such words as
"DAUGAVPILS", "SEDIMENTATION", "DENTAL PROSTHETICS", or even
"HYDROSPASTER" are laughing angrily, - it already begins a real
hysterics ...

In general, to recruit and survive inEpistory - Typing Chronicles is not
easy even for professionals (for example, journalists). But when you
survive in such "printed wars", you want to blow your flushed fingers,
like the "Beretta", from which you just fired in all directions, and cry out
with satisfaction: "I did it!"

On the other hand, the game uses adaptive system of complexity, that
is, it adjusts to the level of the user, gently calculating its statistics -
the number of typed words, speed, number of errors and so on. That is,
if you want to pass it you can all - and at the same time and learn how
to quickly and without errors print on the keyboard.
