Summary ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ☆ Orson Scott Card Ender's Game Read Ô 4 Orson Scott Card ☆ 4 Summary 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 any worth to the story at all I m talking about Mazer s Rackham explaning view spoilerthe buggger s communications system hide spoiler

Orson Scott Card ☆ 4 Summary

Summary ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ☆ Orson Scott Card Ender's Game Read Ô 4 Orson Scott Card ☆ 4 Summary 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 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 twice not to mention three times is really saying something and yes i realize the inherent snobbery in that statementi ve thought long and hard about what makes ender s game so appealing it s got a sympathetic protagonist lots of great action lots of heart and a plausible twist of an ending on those merits only ender s game works it s a lot of fun to read and orson scott card manages to inject some really moral and ethical uandries without resorting to didactism or heavy handedness for example the manipulations of the battle school powers that be are presented and inspected but card never explicitly paints them as the enemy they are who they are for better or for worse but it s up to the reader to for his or her own opinions same for ender and his merry band of castoffs card understands that good v bad is never as simple as black v white the world and universe are often than not varying shades of gray and the folks who inhabit that gray universe for better or for worse are who they are they all have a part they all have a purpose even if those parts and purposes contradict each other ender s game is also a great story of the value and importance of friendship i choke up everytime ender s friends great him over the headset and the kids prepare for the final battle who wouldn t want friends like bean petra hot soup and the rest i sure wouldbut i think the real appeal for ender s game comes from the belief that we all want to believe that there s something uniuely special about us i think it s safe to assume that most of us have at one point or another felt like the underdog the castoff the misfit the misunderstood or the underappreciated and that if people would just give us a chance we d shine in that way ender is very much a universal character he embodies a small part of each ous yes he is treated unfairly and manipulated but he s also the smartest kid in the room there s something very appealing about that at least there is for me whether or not i m the smartest person in the room is irrelevant but i want to believe it and whenever i read ender s game there s a small hope that it just might be true
