Ender's Game Quiz

Postby LucasKintao » Sun Aug 05, 2012 2:00 am

I found this one sometime around 5 am on some random website because I can't f*cking sleep ( Insomnia), and I believe that every EG fan will easily score a full 100% on this quiz.

Damn, I only scored 88%. No wonder everyone threw a fit last year.

I missed the age when he went to Command School, purely because I second-guessed myself.

It said I got 23/24 but none of my answers were red and I couldn't find a mistake. If there was one it must have been a very subtle difference.

And there was no question about what age he went to CS at.

Sorry, when he was made commander. That was probably why I was second-guessing myself, because I could remember the Command School age.

Only missed one, and it was an easy one. Just a mis-click on which was his first army. I was afraid I'd miss a bunch and was questioning my own fan-dom but I was relieved to see that I probably belong here with all of you.

Two wrong. Not bad, but I thought I could do better. Maybe it's time for a re-read

missed the age for command school, oh well I've never been great with ages

I'd be afraid to even pretend to TRY to take a test where they ask ages... that is not the sort of thing I pay much attention to while reading, and it's been - oh, I don't know - probably a DECADE since I read it! :D

I have gotten it out again, though, and I *will* read it before the movie release. I was hoping to read it in French or Swedish or something, but I'm not having much luck finding it on foreign sites yet :(

btw, IMO, that will be one of the amazing benefits of this movie release: the book will be printed (in some cases "again") in every language imaginable :) I can't wait :) Imagine having a copy of EG in 12 languages ;) yes. I'm a nerd.

24/24 :D

Although I think some of the questions are ambiguous or wrong.

I feel that for the 2nd Question: Why does Ender not belong at home? D isn't a great answer. The problem in his home and family isn't that he is the third child, it's that Peter is jealous. He takes revenge by bullying Ender for being a Third, but that isn't the cause

For the 11th Question: When does Peter's image haunt Ender. doesn't he also show up in Ender's dreams, making B a valid answer. Mabye I should just reread the book a 4th time.

And finally, the 13th Qustion: Where does Ender fight Bonzo? Both A and D are valid answers depending on what point in the novel you are discussing

I tried to block the answery-givey away parts.
