Ender's Game - Orson Scott Card recently re-read this book after a good 20 years. (long time ago on analog magazine) my son wanted to discuss it so i made myself go through the book one more time. i can say this, it didn't get better with age. my trouble with the book comes mostly from the poor science and contrived interactions. card is a good writer, just not my kind of good writer. i would recommend a story published around the same time, 'songbird', as a better platform for card's skills.

don't condemn me for how i feel.
