Wow. Dick. I've never seen Billy Madison used for such evil before. I can see the connection, but I hadn't considered it before. I'll definitely bring it up with my friend who I talk about Enderverse stuff with now or then. I bet we come up with more interesting connections that I'll post here if yo...

Who would you speak for?

If you were to be a Speaker, who would you speak for? Anyone, if well-researched, can theoretically be spoken for. I have been trying to think of a famous person I would speak for as well as a person I knew personally. For the famous person, I think I would choose a statesman with a retrospective re...

Wow, I never thought about how most of the "annoying" characters are women. And the most annoying male in EG is named "pretty boy." OSC is like the Christopher Nolan of novelists.

... I would therefore like to nominate Nolan to front the EG/ES movie. ha

For me the reading order could be compared to the star wars movies- Sure, Episodes I, II, and III HAPPENED first, but I don't understand why would you watch them before IV, V, and VI.

To a degree, I've supposed their departure can be chalked up to the discussion the books are filled with about "ambition" in the members of Ender's Jeesh. Their ambition to rule and control doesn't seem to extend to harming others for harming others' sake, so if their presence on Earth was...

You know, other than subtleties probably best described as easter eggs such as the use of the word "Piggies" in Shadow of the Giant, I can't think of much of anything. I'll think about it and if I can think of any more specific references I'll get back to you. Hopefully someone else that r...

I only just came to this realization while reading this thread, but if you want to think about it this way, Ender's Game is one giant Prisoner's Dilemma. You've got collective humanity against the Formics. As was pointed out at the beginning of the thread, among the humans there's some doubt as to ...

If it's your fiance's first time reading, I'm inclined to suggest they read the books in order of date of publication. OSC wrote the Shadow series with the intention to invoke subtleties which he included in the Speaker series. Having already read the Speaker series when beginning the Shadow books, ...

Petra. I'm a teen. I can act, been taking acting lesson since 4th grade. I have her personality but I'm sort of fearless and bold, but no really, sometimes. But the biggest problem is that Petra's Armenian and my father's side of the family comes from Spain. And my mother's side comes from Mexico. ...

The Audiobooks

Hey Philotic Web, I just wanted to see if anyone else out there has listened to the audio presentations of Enderverse books. Personally I've listened to all of the books (strangely except for EG, but i'm halfway through it) and I think it's a really moving collection of work. My favorite works have ...

*Possible spoilers related to Speaker sequels as well as the short story "Cheater."* Has anyone else considered the potential plot-connection bombshell that Hot Soup may have founded the Chinese colony-world Path? I've never discussed this with anyone here, so I don't know if it's a common...

Has it occurred to anyone else that the director of Tsotsi and Wolverine could potentially be perfectly suited to direct Ender's Game? Consider that OSC has discussed that any film adaptation he makes of EG would combine elements of EG and ES, giving the first sequences of Tsotsi definite insight to...

John Paul Wiggin, hands down. He has so many of the best characteristics that constitute both Ender and Peter.

*spoiler warning* Someday I hope to use the keep-ordering-food-until-she-comes-out strategy! Great stuff.
