i think i'm more like olhado than anyone else - the passive observer who sees everything but says nothing. but does anyone find it odd that all the main characters in the enderverse are brilliant? the battle school kids are selectively geniuses and novinha's children all just happen to be brilliant ...

in EG we find out a lot about ender's personality and his emotions and feelings, but in the following books we see more about his actions in trying to reverse what happened in EG. i feel we kind of lose touch with ender somewhere along the way and end up focusing more on other characters/setting.

i just found one thing i wanted to mention. the ansible was mentioned mostly in the speaker series, and is very rarely mentioned in the shadow series. so OSC makes a big deal out of how bean has an ansible, and even makes bean send a message to graff. why did he do it, if not to somehow get jane in ...

-bump- :D romances were never central to the plot, except with bean/petra's children, but i've got to admit that i'm an incorrigible romantic and i've madly perused every single romance in the series. okay, okay, i love it all, though i think ender made an odd choice in novinha. alai and virlomi was...

if ender's game were a soap opera, ender would be the lost-glory-but-settled-down-for-family-guy, novinha would be the jealous-second-wife-trouble-making-annoying-woman, quim would be the martyr-of-martyrs, olhado would be the annoyingly-quiet-observer/stalker, ela would be the super-devoted-to-her-...

stilson and bonzo were avoidable, truly avoidable. ender could have run away the day he killed stilson. and after he fought salamander and "taunted" them he realized too late that he had pushed Bonzo too far. and I think in the end, they were the two deaths that really haunted him the most - not inc...

... wow. prisoner's dilemma? superrationality and the cooperation wasn't what ender was really trying to achieve in EG though, and game theory states that unless the two PD players actually know each other well then the most likely position will be to defect, and defect again and again. i like how O...

-bump- :D I think the underlying story was a story of a boy who was forced to fight an enemy he didn't want to fight, and a story of a leader and his best friends and followers. The null-g laser tag and the somewhat crude jokes and the Demosthenes-Locke thing was just embellishment. Yes, the setting...

i remember reading that it was from a short story osc had written that he put in exile later. but i kind of liked the story, the little half-romance with alessandra made ender's life a little more "normal" and it was interesting to see how dorabella was trying to manipulate things. dorabella didn't ...

Which character most annoys you?

for me, it was randi. her totally twisted views on achilles and her son really disgusted me. han qing-jao and her super-devoutness was a close second.

you guys?

Speaker vs. Shadow

I just want to discuss ALL the books because i'm obsessed, just like everyone else on this forum (except the trolls). I thought the speaker series was the ultra-scientific one, with the starships and the philotes and the aiuas and the descolada and the piggies and whatnot. But the shadow series was ...
