Only the good stuff

I read a lot and love to read. I find great pleasure in good science fiction, and enjoy thinking about the great stories I've read and agonizing over what will come next. The information I provide here is for me. I long been a voracious reader, but never a review writer. But I've been tempted to try to document my thoughts on the why, what and how of the books I enjoyed. But do feel free to peruse, and please do suggest a great read you think I'd like.

Ender's Game (Ender, Book 1)

Ender's Game - Orson Scott Card Okay. I love this story. I have read it at least 10 times over the years, and my understanding and appreciation of it has increased over time. The story is highly compelling, at least to people who would like to play the games described in the story. And, the storyteller has accurately judged what real life details could be stripped away while still allowing the reader to 'live the story' and get to know the key characters. It does require a suspension of disbelief, but so do all stories.
