After reading your post, at first my response was going to be something like, "You're right that the dialogue is all the same, but even though Ender talked to Bean, he never really thought about him in the 1st person narration much. In terms of knowing what he thought about Bean, you really need to ...

I see. Well that changes my opinion of you entirely. I can see what you mean, how you read the original Ender's Game that was there first and you know and love and there's no hint of that relationship there, so when people bring it up it seems iffy. I didn't really have that issue. All the Shadow se...

Question about Ender and Bean

Dunno if this has already been asked. If so, feel free to yell at me and such, but... At what point is Ender told the truth about Bean? Some point in EiE, I'd assume? I mean, I was skimming EiE today and saw an email from Graff to Ender about Bean's genetic condition, his marriage to Petra, and the ...

Bean. Like DEK said, Ender's "individual battles" are unrealistic to what real wars are like. Also, thanks to Anton's Key, Bean is indeed the smartest person in the world. Even Ender admit that Bean was the better military strategist, and that Ender's job as a commander was getting to know his soldi...

Indeed. The only way Artemis would outsmart/outdo Ender is if he had his whole mansion worth of technology, money, and his bodyguards and such. And that wouldn't really be a fair Ender vs. Artemis, now would it? That would be Ender vs. Artemis's stuff and henchmen.

I'm not saying the covers need to be all fancy and have a lot of stuff on it. I know, there have been great covers that are just, like plain.

It almost...just, irritates that they try to make some sort of detailed scene cover, but they do the same picture every time. :/

That was a pretty unrealistic love story.

Though I guess it depends if you're the type to be flattered or freaked out by one of your students sitting outside your office for hours, listening to you cry, while he orders mass amounts of food every 20 minutes or so.

I don't know if there's already a topic like this, but, whatever. Graff is such an overlooked character, in my opinion. And there's a reason for it.
