Re:

I think Beans love life was way more interesting the Enders. Ender and Novinha were kinda boring. Bean and Petra had some life to them. Anyone else agree? I don't know. All the talk about wanting to mate with Bean for his genes kinda put a damper on the romance angle. Not once when I was dating my ...

Re: Which character most annoys you?

Doesn't this kind of defeat the purpose of the books? The main thing I've always taken from these books is that if you don't try to understand the people around you, you're doing it wrong. I saw someone who was annoyed with Novinha, and this is the perfect example. She's hotheaded, she's bitchy, an...

Re: What's your LEAST favorite Ender/Speaker Book?

Upon further reading, I'd like to revote for Shadow of the Giant instead of Xenocide. Bean took a back seat to Hot Soup, Virlomi, and Alai and that didn't work for me. Plus, Virlomi is annoying. Can we say Achilles part II? How many crazies were admitted to Battle School?

That sounds much better. I think part of the original Kobo's problem was that it left the cover on when you "closed" the book so it never actually shut off all the way.
