This book was on my to read list from last year and I didn't get to it. It's a science fiction/fantasy novel and though it was written in the 90's is still currently very highly rated. I'm sure if you enjoy science fiction you might really like this book, I however was not a big fan.
This book is short (226 pgs) and very easy to read, however I had a hard time finishing it! I found it to be slow moving and very descriptive but not in an easy to visualize way. The story is about "gifted" children, who in this case are supposed to be super smart. I get that, but the way they talk to each other and such is hard to relate to when Ender starts out at as a six year old who talks and thinks like someone much older.
Overall, if you are into science fiction you might want to give this book a go, otherwise I'd skip it. Not a must read in my opinion.
