Book spoilers, especially the end of the book, and some non-spoiler stuff about later books in the series:

I have a few friends that are OMG-OBSESSED with this series though so hopefully it lives up to their billing!
I finally read the book last night and this morning so I could catch an early showing of the movie today.
Really liked the book. Even if it is a little juvenile at times.
The movie was just okay. It's a nice complement to the book but I think it would have a hard time standing on its own.
I watched it the other night. Quite enjoyed it. The cinematography was good as was the pace of advancing the storyline. However:
Anyone who read the book/books, is there a sequel planned?
There are sequel books, but I'm unsure if there is one planned to be adapted.
I'm interested to find that you enjoyed it. I really thought it would be less enjoyable for someone who hasn't read the book. Glad to hear that wasn't the case.
Did you get the sense how much strain they were putting on Ender throughout his training? In the book there are literally months that pass where they make his team go into battle every day, sometimes twice a day, and at all hours of the day and night. The author did a reasonable job at writing just how exhaustive the whole process was for him. I worried about how that was conveyed.
re: your spoiler.
If you liked the movie, I definitely recommend reading the book. I flew through it in about 5 hours one night and morning last week. It's a very quick read.
