Having children act like adults is definitely a unique science fiction plot. I did happen to see the movie before I read the book, and this definitely falls in the category of books to read before the movie, as I enjoyed the book and found it more detailed than the movie. The books get more into what happened with Ender's siblings that help frame up the following books, which I intended to read as well.
Now a Major Motion Picture. The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.
Is Ender the general Earth so desperately needs? The only way to find out is to throw him into ever-harsher training at Battle School, to chip away and find the diamond inside, or destroy him utterly. Ender Wiggin is six years old when his training begins. He will grow up fast.
But Ender is not the only result of the experiment. His two older siblings, Peter and Valentine, are every bit as unusual as he is, but in very different ways. Among the three of them lie the abilities to remake a world. If, that is, the world survives.
