Ender’s Game

[rating=5]

A brilliant scifi novel written by Orson Scott Card about children that are raised to be soldiers from birth in preparation for an anticipated invasion from an insect like alien race.  In this story we follow a young boy named Ender Wiggin as he is raised and trained to be not only a soldier but a leader.

I love everything about this book, from emotion, the action, futuristic tech and everything in between.  For what started as a short story released in 1977 and a book released in 1985, Card has an amazing almost foretelling view of the future to include detailed uses of the internet and iPad like devices.

A buddy of mine has been bugging me to read this book for years and I finally made a point to do so over the summer.  An additional kick in my butt to go ahead and read this is that I heard about the movie being made.  With that said I really wanted to read the book before watching the movie for which I plan to review with Mick.

You can find the book Ender’s Game on Amazon.

We’re Alive

[rating=5]

Written by KC Wayland and produced by KC Wayland and Shane Salk, We’re Alive is a story about zombie survival that follows three soldiers and a group of civilian survivors from the initial outbreak and into their daily struggles, fights and all out war.  This isn’t your grandpa’s audio drama or your grandma’s soaps.  This is the best produced audio drama out there today to include it’s well written story line, detailed characters, acting, audio quality and blow your mind sound effects.

We love We’re Alive so much we have a fancast for it.
