I kind of disagree. The way I look at it Ender's enemy was not just Stilson, but the whole gang of children, I don't think his overboard aggression and infliction of harm on Stilson was just for Stilson, but to make anyone in Stilson's group fear what Ender could do. If Ender had only slightly injur...

I randomly picked up this book out of the Science fiction section at my high-school library many many years ago. I started reading in one class and couldn't stop. My statistics teacher had to get on to me for reading in class because I just couldn't put the story down. I then started reading again w...

Here's an interesting thought...

Why not? If the human race can make religions based on six-armed women and fat men as well as aliens, then why not off stories as well? It really is not all that far of a stretch of the imagination to think that it could turn into a religion. All you need is enough charismatic and influential people...

Not to be argumentative, but I don't think Bean's "people skills" would ever quite match Ender's. I think Bean's commander experience is described either in SoTH or Shadow Puppets, can't remember which. But in my opinion it described Bean's soldiers as ones who wanted his respect and praise and knew...

I think you are missing the point. Bean was the better strategist because of those genetic enhancements. Ender is and will always be the better commander in my opinion becuase you don't command well without leading well. It doesn't matter how great your strategies are if you can't get your soldiers ...

Now that I think about it more in depth, I believe you are correct. But even so, couldn't you still consider Bean's task force to be a special 6th toon? In effect still making him a toon leader as he was responsible for training those in his force (even if Ender was to be informed of what they were ...

Unless you count his "special task force" as a toon.

Which should be the case since Ender states that the other commanders had not caught onto the fact the he used 5 toons instead of 4.
