Ender's Game Teaser Trailer

The book made me contemplate big concepts like how humanity can only be brought together by an outside force bent on our destruction.

I'm not much for science fiction, actually. I know and have seen most of the classic films of the genre. And liked them. But I'm quite deficient in the category of books. A couple of years ago I decided to try and remedy this and started looking for the classic sci-fi books. Time and time again, I heard the title Ender's Game, and eventually got down and read it. I was not too impressed, initially. Orson Scott Card is a decent writer, but his prose is a bit staid, provoking very little emotion or beauty from his words. The story,

Don't know if you heard, but Christopher Nolan is doing a sequel to his highly successful The Dark Knight, which continues the adventures of Batman/Bruce Wayne as portrayed by Christian Bale. The villians he faces against in the next film are Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) and Bane (Tom Hardy), though when we last saw Batman, the city of Gotham thought he was a villian as well. That's because he took the blame for the murders committed by Harvey Dent, corrupted into the villian Two-Face (Aaron Eckhart) by The Joker (Heath Ledger), in order to protect Dent's memory. The reason why,
