SUMMARY Ender's Game 109 ï [PDF] ✎ Ender's Game By Orson Scott Card – The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years and the uest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long Enter Andrew Ender Wiggin the result of decades of genetic experi The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years aD If that is the world survivesThis Special th Anniversary Edition of the Hugo and Nebula Award winning classic is now digitally remastered with a full cast production It also contains an exclusive bonus an original postscript written and recorded by the author himself Orson Scott Card© TOR Books P Fantastic Audio an imprint of Audio Literature. 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 at war and can only be saved by a child genius who is one part prophecy one part bad science and one part wish fulfillment Thanks to this plan we are treated to a gaggle of super intelligent children who seldom appear particularly clever in fact many behave with adult maturity rather than abnormal intellect and achieve greatness not through any great effort that we follow rather you'll read recaps of their successful efforts but because the author wants them to achieve these things In this the definitive edition of Ender's Game there is almost nothing earned within the plotIt's a decent story but for a book with so many events there is very little conseuence or risk and the character development is so linear and stale That last uality is particularly cloying considering that prodigies or not most of the characters are children and at least one of them should develop in an unexpected way Instead the unexpected developments we get are humorlessly absurd like two prodigies fooling the world with a fake op ed column that earns them political power The ending is predictable and deliberately anti climactic robbing the novel of its one true punch The trade off is instead of getting the thing the book was building to you get the opportunity for seuels and spin offs If you liked the infallible mostly emotionless and paper thin protagonist then that's a good thing If you were hoping to have the hours you put into the book validated with some real emotion at the end well neither this author's definitive edition nor any other is going to help you

DNF at 52 ar Orson Scott CardThere are over 3310480700 women in this worldSincerely Women Dear Fans of This Book Who Are Probably About To Make An Angry Comment On This ReviewPlease leave now if you don't want to get all huffy and insulted and make a comment defending the author or whatever other shit that is this book Or if you want go ahead If you're going to comment at least read the whole review and not just a uarter of it I'm so sick of repeating myself over and over in the comments Yes I bash the author first but I do make my points on why I hated the book itself and not just because of himThank you Sincerely Kat First of all before I get into the book I'd like to say that Orson Scott Card is one of the biggest dicks on this Earth For those of who don't know he is openly homophobic and a hyprocrite wwwsaloncom20130507scifiicon He is a Chauvinist known to believe that women are the weaker sex and were only put on this world to make babies He is a Mormon that from what I've heard from people who've read his other books tries to convert you in his own writing in his novels Just for this author's personality this book deserves one star But now onto the actual book which deserves one star in itselfThe Author's Viewpoints Leak InIt starts out well enough It's interesting and keeps your attention But immediately the sexism shows its ugly face; All the boys are organized into armiesAll boysA few girls They don't often pass the tests to get in Too many centuries of evolution are working against themKeep in mind that this book is supposed to take place in the future There are several things wrong with this sentence 1 In this day and age thousands of women are in the military and fighting for their country They have been for decades now and longer still So if this is supposed to be in the future does Card think that women will give up their ability to fight so easily 2 Centuries of evolution working against them On what terms That we have ovaries That we can have babies so are therefore unfit to fight or have the mental capacity to pass the tests boys can easily pass This is the 21st century genius Women work Women are in the army Get your head out of your ass and look around for fuck's sakes CharactersI feel that Card made all the characters far too young Ender is six Valentine is eight and Peter is ten Peter has a fetish for torturing suirrels and threatening to kill his siblings Um okay Is there any explanation for this strange behavior No because according to this book all our kids in the future are fully functioning psychopaths Except the girls of course They're too 'mild' for behavior like thatIn the future the army is apparently full of kids barely older than six up to age twelve To be trained for a war that as far as I could tell from the point I got to was already won WritingThe writing was atrocious Card switches from third person perspective to first person constantly The first person switches are for the character's 'thoughts' but the words aren't italicized or anything so you can never tell To me that's a sign of bad writing If you can't stick with one kind of perspective than you should go back to those non existent creative writing classes Plot Towards the middle of the book the plot started to seriously drag and get outright ridiculous Valentine and Peter start planning to 'take over the world' by writing fucking debate columns Not only is the whole 'let's rule the world' concept highly overused it's poorly planned out It's randomly thrown into the story like Okay we need villains and things happening so let's make the ten year old girl and twelve year old murderous boy try to take over the worldwith debate columns Sure Then switching back to Ender who is now nine years old and a commander of his own kid army we have our main character turning into the bullying idiots that bullied him in the beginning of the book Has he learned nothing Oh sure it makes the kids 'better soldiers' They're not even seven years old they are not fucking soldiers The whole story is a fucked up version of a 'kid military' which is run by controlling adults who don't want the war to end so they can remain in power It just ugh It got so tedious and irritating that I decided to give up on it I'm not going to waste my time with a book written by a sexist homophobic dickwad I'm not even going to see the movie which is a real shame because I love Asa Butterfield I feel bad that he was brought into such a stupid bookmovie business

Ender's GameIp away and find the diamond inside or destroy him utterly Ender Wiggin is six years old when his training begins He will grow up fastBut Ender is not the only result of the experiment His two older siblings Peter and Valentine are every bit as unusual as he is but in very different ways Among the three of them lie the abilities to remake a worl. 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 because children are just stupid versions of normal people Happily enough The Giver is a totally stupid version of A Clockwork Orange or whatever Dystopian book actually it's a rewrite of Ayn Rand's Anthem Coincidentally in my review of Alice In Wonderland I happen to put forth my own philosophy regarding children's books In short they should present a complex strange many faceted and never dumbed down world because presenting a simple one sided dumbed down world both insults and stultifies a child's mindHowever if someone were to say that this book were a childrenized version of Starship Troopers I wouldn't sic a poodle on them Both present a humanbug war deal with the issues of death war the military complex human interaction personal growth and all that good stuff Also both authors have their heads up their asses and there must be a pretty good echo in there since they keep yelling their hearts out about one personal opinion or another However Orson Scott Card doesn't get into his pointless author surrogate diatribes until the second book in this series so we may enjoy the first one uninterrupted So it's a pretty good book for children and like romeo and Juliet it's easy to see the appeal kid defeats bullies and plays videogames to save the worldin one of the seuels they save the world by making angry comments on the internet surprising that one isn't popular here But than that it's not a bad book in general so I guess I don't have to bother defining it as dumbed down or 'for kids' Then again a lot of grown ups seem like they need their books dumbed down Just look at The Da Vinci Code compared to The Satanic Verses or Foucault's Pendulum; or all three compared to The Illuminatus Trilogy I'm pretty sure when it comes to stupid versions of things adults have the monopoly
