It’s hard to describe the magic of this book. The way it makes you think and wonder about life and the world. Charlie is like no other but you still can’t help but compare yourself too him. Sam and Patrick are weird and insane, like most teenagers are (at least the one’s I know).
The writing, the plot everything will just amaze you, but the thing I loved the most was the friendship. How a group of very different people look out for one another and always find something to laugh about.
The book was so good I am afraid of seeing the movie. Even though there are great actors playing the roles I only see them mess it up.
“And In that moment, I swear we were infinite” – Charlie
Finally the trailer is out, although I haven’t read the book I just feel it in my gut that this is a movie to see!
After all seeing Emma Watson (Harry Potter) acting with Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson) is a must. Both of them have acted in a Chris Columbus film. I think this will be the coming of age movie of the year.
Joining them are Nina Dobrev (Vampire Diaries), Paul Rudd (Role Models) and Ezra Miller (We Need to talk about Kevin).
The best-selling book sold over a million copies in the U.S. alone, it has also been published in 16 countries and 13 languages.
It’s a touching story about a shy and sensitive teenager who is both trying to live his life and escape it….. Aren’t we all?
The Hunger Games trilogy has become a hit all around the world, but very few have actually read the books.
Trust me watching the movie won’t be enough. Suzanne Collins creates the perfect world you love to hate.
Unlike Hogwarts and Half Blood Hill, Panem is a place you don’t want to go to. Though I am not into the whole teen love concept, however Peeta stole my heart.
Katniss isn’t a typical teenage girl, but everyone can relate to her. This is a real sad story between poverty and death of children.
Suzanne Collins eases it up with the greatest bit of humor. This is an awesome fantasy book and not reading it would be a crime of nature.
This American remake of the Swedish Film “Let the Right One In” is amazing. The quietness makes it haunting, most often those kinds of films aren’t appreciated enough.
The playlist, plot and the cast make it a great experience. Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Road) portrays a lonely boy perfectly, but the one to steal the show is none other than Chloë Grace Moretz (Kick Ass), everyone loves vampires at least when they don’t sparkle.
Afraid of the sun, not allowed in without permission and the indefinite hunger for blood. If you don’t like brutality then this is not a movie for you.
It’s decided to make a Ender’s Game film. 1 November 2013 is the supposed date of the premier, making us who are anxious to see it wait a whole year and a half. Gavin Hood (director of X-Men Origins: Wolverine) both directs and writes along with Orson S. Card himself.
The excitement does not end there. Playing one of the main characters is none other than Harrison Ford (Indiana Jones and Han Solo). He will be portraying Colonel Hyrum Graff. Ford is known for making his characters epic, that we can’t deny. Can’t wait to see how he will bring Graff to life.
He isn’t the only one, accompanying him are, the academy award winner Ben Kingsley (Ghandi) who will be Mazer Rackham, Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine) as Valentine Wiggin, Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) as Petra and Asa Butterfield (Hugo) as Ender Wiggin.
Butterfield is said to be perfect for the role, and I agree after seeing his great performance in Hugo as Hugo Cabret. “Butterfield is showing himself to be, not a child actor, but an actor who happens to be young” Said Orson when visiting the Ender’s Game set
“Butterfield is smart. That really helps when he’s supposed to bring off apreternaturally intelligent character. Actors can easily play dumb, but I’ve never seen an actor bring off a character that is smarter than he is. He’s convincing as Ender Wiggin, so if the movie doesn’t work, it won’t be Butterfield’s fault.”
Clearly Butterfield will not disappoint. Still in the beginning of the book Ender is six, Butterfield already being fifteen, how will they do it? Guess we just have to wait and see.
This was probably the most entertaining book I have ever read. Orson Scott Card has a way to make you laugh and the next moment you are on the edge of tears. The whole story kept me on the edge of the seat I hardly could put the book down. You can’t help but feel sympathy and love for the main character (Ender).
If like me you like a mixture of Sci fi and Adventure then this is a book for you. The sooner you read it the sooner it becomes a childhood favorite.I even feel a little sad for not discovering this book sooner. Orson S. Card is a genuine genius and can’t wait to read the rest of the Ender’s Game series.
