    I have a new website where I review awesome books I wanted to like Ender's Game I really did It's a wonder that even after than halfway into the book I still clung on to the foolishly optimistic notion that the book would somehow redeem itself That it would end up justifying the tedious repetitive drearily dull chapters I trundled

    This was the first book I picked up and read all the way through in one sitting Technically it's not a difficult read but conceptually it's rich and engagingThey have a word for people our age They call us children and they treat us like miceIf you can't understand that statement you probably won't like this book It's about intelligent children Not miniature adults their motivations understanding and some times naivete clearly mark them

    I was savaged by a miniature poodle the other day wait no someone protested my review of The Giver the other day If you have any pent up rage from that college lit teacher who forced you to think about books be sure to stop by and spew some incoherent vitriol my reviews are now a socially acceptable site of catharsis for the insecureIn any case one of them made the argument that children need new versions of great books that are stupider

    I read this novel because it was often the favorite novel of students of mine and I wanted to understand why I should mention that I love science fiction and have read it avidly since I was barely than a child I'm not by any means some kind of anti sci fi snobThe first thing that bothered me is that the novel sets adults against gifted children in a way that strikes me as bizarre Adults are essentially evil but teachers especia

    i think 'ender's game' is the only book i've read three times for me books often don't have repeat reading value in the same way some movies have repeat viewing value it's probably because a movie takes two hours of your time while a novel for me takes a week or longer so for someone like to me read a novel twic

    This is a novel that blows past conventional ideas like disbelief Apparently humanity a species whose only real claim to fame is war now stinks

    This was a really good book On its surface it is a great story about a young boy who goes through tremendous struggles On another level it is a brilliant psychological character study and an observation of group

Andrew Ender Wiggin thinks he is playing computer simulated war games; he is in fact engaged in something far desperate The result of genetic experimentation Ender may be the military genius Earth desperately needs in a war against an alien enemy seeking to destroy all human life The only way to find out is to throw Ender into ever harsher training to chip away and find the diamond inside or destroy him utterly Ender Wiggin is six years old when it begins He will grow up I have a new website where I review awesome books I wanted to like Ender s Game I really did It s a wonder that even after than halfway into the book I still clung on to the foolishly optimistic notion that the book would somehow redeem itself That it would end up justifying the tedious repetitive drearily dull chapters I trundled through over the course of several days which is unusual since I m generally a fast readerIt pains me to say it as a hardcore fangirl of science fiction that one of sci fi s most beloved and highly regarded novels did not do it for me Actually that is understating it While I m at it I ll just duck and blurt it out I loathed Ender s Game Deep breaths Let that sink in Let the hate flow through you Good strike me downI am unarmed Okay Now let s get to itWas it because the expectations I had in my mind were unreasonably high and thus were responsible for ruining the book for me No way I make no bones about the fact that Ender s Game regardless of the respect and popularity it commands in sci fi circles is an inherently bad novel Why though you might ask Why such vitriol for the book Here you are then 1 Bad plotting It didn t take me long to realise that after I was past Ender s arrival at the Battle School every literally every chapter thereon until his return to Earth was or less the same thing Battle games beating the shit out of kids battle games switching back and forth to Armies battle games It was so repetitive that I was exhausted at the end of everysinglechapter Page after page after page of six year old seven year old eight year old Ender and his buddies zooming about in ships trying to freeze one another s socks off Wheeee2 Lack of characterisation There are no personalities There are no motivations You never learn anything about the characters except that they are the good guys or the bad guys Ender is brilliant at everything He NEVER loses Not once Bernard Stilson and Co are the bad guys They re evil baddies cause dey r jealuz of ender s brilliance omg That s it No background no depth no internal conflicts No motivation Words cannot express how two dimensional and woefully lacking in personality the characters are3 Demosthenes and Locke What the heck was that all about I appreciate Card s prescience about the Nets and blogging before it was around but come on this is pushing it a bit too far How I beg you how are we supposed to take the idea that a pair of kids end up taking the world by posting in online forums and blogging As if we people of the internet didn t have enough delusions of grandeur already 4 Now this really gets my goatI had to wait for the last 20 pages to get information that was of

Ender's Game

FastBut Ender is not the only result of the experiment The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years and the uest for the perfect general has been underway almost as long Ender's two older siblings Peter and Valentine are every bit as unusual as he is but in very different ways While Peter was too uncontrollably violent Valentine very nearly lacks the capability for violence altogether Neither was found suitable for the military's purpose But they are drive Spoiler AlertGod damn did I hate Ender s Game I checked out and can surely see why I wanted to give it a shot Talk about a cult following of people absolutely smitten with it I even read some where that it s on the reuired reading list at uantico I suppose this book could be some kind of manifesto for misfit nerds who waste their life playing video games or a source of legitimacy for motivating tired Marines sick of drilling The book rambles on infinitely about the boy genius Ender and his laser tag in a zero gravity vacuum I also suppose we could kid ourselves into thinking the novel brings to light the necessity of Machiavellianism in conflict or maybe we could discuss the pathetic New Age garbage the book ended with as our annoying protagonist spreads some half crocked neo religion amongst space colonies in which you love the enemy you are forced to annihilate Some sort of cryptic Latter Day Saints plug by the Mormon author There were several other things I couldn t stand about it First of all like even the best science fiction the characters were one dimensional card board cut outs This starts with the dorky self absorbed protagonist Ender himself I can deal with this problem if the plot is cool enough ala Dune Dune too often times dealt with children geniuses however it was explained and made sense in the story We have no idea why Ender and the other children of which 999% were male are so smart Speaking of children did any of you guys pick up any sort of creepy pedophile vibe in this book How many times were we told of naked little boys Why were there references to their tiny patches of pubic hair Why did Ender have to have his big fight naked while lathered with soap in the shower And the corny Ebonics that the children randomly spoke in WTF The third rate and minuscule insight we were given about the geopolitical conditions on Earth were terribly dated The Warsaw Pact dominated by Russia What a cheap rip of Orwell Lame The side story about Ender s genius two siblings also using Machiavellian tactics to achieve their political goals instead of Ender s military ones by blogging on the internet really didn t add up to beans in plot development if you ask me Of course Ender is never beaten at anything he does I suppose we are to be awed by his victories but strangely his greatest triumph was his stoic willingness to use some sort of super weapon to destroy an enemy wholesale via exploding an entire planet On the cover of my book it suggests this book is appropriate for 10 year olds What could a child get out this book Boo to Ender s Game les-profs-tome-1-interro-surprise very different ways While Peter was too uncontrollably

N by their jealousy of Ender and by their inbred drive for power Peter seeks to control the political process to become a ruler Valentine's abilities turn toward the subtle control of the beliefs of commoner and elite alike through powerfully convincing essays Hiding their youth and identities behind the anonymity of the computer networks these two begin working together to shape the destiny of Earth an Earth that has no future at all if their brother Ender fails hatrackc I read this novel because it was often the favorite novel of students of mine and I wanted to understand why I should mention that I love science fiction and have read it avidly since I was barely than a child I m not by any means some kind of anti sci fi snobThe first thing that bothered me is that the novel sets adults against gifted children in a way that strikes me as bizarre Adults are essentially evil but teachers especially The children are inherently excellent capable of helping each other in trying to figure out just what the adults are hiding which is in this case a vast and secret war they are tricking the children into fighting for them This was perhaps the hardest to believe of all the things thrown at the reader and interestingly it is hidden from you until the very end though you can guess at it before thenWhat disturbed me the most is that the writing is terrible far too much happens internally inside the character s head it s an emo space opera basically and one of the most interesting events of the book is nearly buried and the presentation of it is rushed because it is near the end There are many points in the battle scenes where it is impossible to understand what s happening And the penultimate plot event where it s revealed all of the games were notgamescould have been handled interestingly But the novel was overdetermined things happening only because the writer wants them too and not because they feel inevitable and so too many of the arrows point in the same direction By the time Ender meets Mazer his final teacher my eyes rolled back into my head at the implausibility of it all And it s worth mentioning the thing no one prepared me for was the bizarre homoerotic subtext built into the book as well a subtext that is sometimes just a plain old supertext on display right beside how women in this novel are to be loved distantly and kept from real knowledge and turned against themselves so they can then be used to compel othersIt creeped me out and I m gayI m also a former gifted child and was tested and poked and pushed all of these things made to study computer programming when I didn t want to and I made myself fail out of their program to get away from them But I found no commonality with the gifted children here not as I have in other stories about gifted children say like Salinger s Glass family Also these kids are all jerks I do hand it to Card for the ideas in the novel blogging Yes It s in here well before anyone was doing it and it matters a lot and in the ways blogging matters Also the idea of an institution that runs on the manipulation of its populace into a distant war with an implacable foe as a way of controlling people And a society that has no privacy at all not even in dreams This novel does offer a dark picture of what life is like under these terms Also the idea of how a hive mind would think differently without language and the complications of communicating with someone like that that s brilliant alsoI wish it had been revised that the battle scenes were clearer that the movement of the novel s action the way the buggers are in a race to try and communicate with Ender before he kills them that this were obvious to the reader and not a surprise whipped out at the end so that it could have lent tension to the scenes of the games and manipulation which were only boring And Ender s decision to be the Speaker for the Dead that struck me cold because in the end the buggers were only trying to do what everyone else in his life were doing to him poring over what makes him tick and trying to get him to do their bidding The novel contains a rant against style at the beginning added by Card called literary tricks by him I think the most interesting thing about it is that given the millions sold it is proof that story matters than style even as convoluted and badly formed as this one is In the end what matters is the uestions the novel raises and the implications of the uestions and that the novel really is about something at its core behind all of the badly rendered fight scenes I admire style don t get me wrong I love it But it would appear you can get by without it
