Hosted by Freda’s Voice, The Friday 56 follows these simple rules:Ender's Gamethe-friday-56

  • Grab a book, any book.
  • Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader.
  • Find any sentence (or few, just don’t spoil it) that grabs you.
  • Post it.

For a sickening moment he tried to retain his old up-and-down orientation, his body attempting to right istelf, searching for the gravity that wasn’t there. Then he forced himself to change his view. He was hurtling toward a wall. That was down. And at once he had control of himself. He wasn’t flyng, he was falling. This was a dive. He could choose how he would hit the surface.

Just came back from the theatre, and absolutely loved the movie. It’s been a few years since I read the book, but it’s still stuck with me, and I felt that the movie did it justice. I always suggest Ender’s Game when someone’s looking to get a taste of science fiction. It has all the elements of a great science fiction, and raises interesting questions. Any other fans out there?
