Re: Reaction to Enders Game

Don't get me wrong Enders Game is a good book. However, I feel it is very overrated. It was incredibly predictable and repetitive. I do think it would be a good book to have middle schoolers read, I know I would have appreciated it more at that age. read SPEAKER FOR THE DEAD and then tell me afterw...

I didn't like the graphics from the First Meetings collection of short stories. Ender looked sort of like an emo kid.

The whole Speaker series and Ender's Shadow and Shadow of the Giant were my favorites...Shadow Puppets and Shadow of the Hegemon didn't really appeal to me...
Im reading Shadow puppets right now and the whole military aspects of it are a bore. Give me Speaker for the Dead and the pequinoes any day.

Ender, Batman, and John Connor; three of my favourite fictional characters all played by the same guy... That would just be weird.
Have you seen Christian Bale's performance in the movie Equilibrium? It's a stellar movie; a definite must see if you're into the scifi genre.

No duhr. When I first read Ender, I was in 6th Grade. I was always the smartest kid in the class, and *couch* don't mean anything, but I was pretty popular and nice. The people respected my views, I guess. However, even when I tried showing Ender's Game to some friends, they took one look at the co...

I always pictured them something like actors I've seen before. Adult Ender I always pictured as Christian Bale with a beard and longish hair. Young Valentine to me would look like Clea DuVall and Peter would be Hayden Christiensen, circa Life As A House. Novinha I pictured as Paz Vega. Adult Valent...

In reference to the humanity of Bean, Petra is very much so human she responded emotionally to Bean in a "loving" way. I didn't feel that his genetic abnormality made him less human. What is the true meaning of human to be exact? Any form of disease can be considered a genetic abnormality, in this c...

No, I don't think that he could have done the things that he did if not for them. As we see in Xenocide, he's internalized Peter and Val to such an extent that they represent the two extremes of his personality in his own mind. Ender feels guilt and empathy when he hurts people because he knows tha...

How far apart (age wise) were Bean and Petra?

How old were they when they got married/pregnant?

Ender, Jane, Novinha.
wow? really?! someone out there actually valued Novinha as a character...i never believed that Ender actually loved her. In my opinion, he saw her as a 'project.' Novinha was someone Ender wanted to fix mentally and emotionally.
