Review
In the latest book of the Arkady Renko series, the melancholy inspector is relentlessly on the trail to find the killer of an investigative reporter who had many enemies. Stubbornly, Arkady refuses to believe her death was a suicide, and his travels to uncover the truth take him to the Kaliningrad, Russia, a summer vacation area known for amber... and Russian mafia crime. Young Zhenya also learns about acceptance. Gripping reading; I finished the book very quickly and enjoyed the suspense and twists and turns.

Title
Ender's Game
Author
Orson Scott Card
Review
Ender’s game focuses on a society that values their military power, harnessing students at a young age to become soldiers that are meant to save their universe. Ender is one of the oldest newbies colonized into the military. He is destined to become the boy to defeat the Buggars because of his natural instincts. In the novel, there are battle that prepare Ender for the battle with the Buggars. There are many more instances where Ender learn his battle skills and develops as a soldier and leader. Although the movie incorporates the main battles, viewers see less of Ender’s development. Watching Ender’s Game is exactly as imagined: the flight time, the game room, the other soldiers, the spaceship. Ender’s Game is my all time favorite (book and movie). It’s all action and adventure, science fiction, and no romance.
