So if subvocalisation is soundless, how could Novinha hear Ender talking to Jane in order to get jealous about it? This is a very good question. Because I have a bad habit of subvocalizing when I daydream I think I'll field this question. Subvocalization happens when you are talking to yourself but...

I just finished Ender in Exile and War of Gifts. Now I'm working on Dune, which I previously read half of. But I'm starting it over, listening to the book on CD and reading along. I read the first half a year ago, then got into ender's game, and well......... that was the end of my interest in Dune....

Yeah, the plan is to base the movie off of both Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow, in terms of perspective.

Elfprince! First I gotta say, I love the name. Secondly, I should thank zeroguy for clarifying for me. Yes, as zeroguy stated my IS that it is irrelevant whether or not it was true Christianity. And what is true socialism . It's unfortunate that a talk about socialism has gone off on a tangent of re...

LET'S TELL OSC TO DO THIS FOR THE MOVIE!

It's real simple. He keeps optioning it to different studios to get it made. Just go with the people who put out Marvel Comics Movies. I've noticed Marvel likes to make movies of comics they want people to buy. ha ha. So the studio they use, maybe some of the good directors (Bryan Singer) that they'...

I'm part way into the book myself. So far it seems that Card IS putting forth a lot of his own political beliefs, and I believe that's why they chose him to write the story. It should be mentioned that the initial plot isn't necessarily his own. He was hired to do it by a video game company who came...

I'm going to buy the Ender's Game comics within the next month or so. I read the Ultimate Iron Man Issues and they were great! OSC is totally at home writing in the Marvel Universe, no wonder they are so comfortable with his work. He really put some great new spins on the Iron Man mythos, at least t...

I see. We get the old "oh but that wasn't [i]true socialism[/i]" Just like that wasn't true Christianity during the aggressive wars of the Crusades, or the terrorism of 911 wasn't true Islam. Look at the wrongs done in the name of these ideologies. Of course, that doesn't render them all defunct in ...

I've always like that song and never knew who sings it. Guess I'm gettin old! Yeah, I'm sure that song wasn't inspired by the Ender's Game. But it certainly does call to mind some of the themes in ender's game Hey. Puff the Magic Dragon is really about marijuana. But, wouldn't it be cool if that was...

I think it's worth mentioning that the Speakers don't tell every dirty little secret. An important part of speaking is that it isn't done for the dead, it's done for the living, to help them reconcile some feelings toward the dead, close the books on some chapters of their own lives, and ultimately ...
