Really interesting! I seldom do scifi, and I really enjoyed the psychological aspects, and the end was unexpected. I listened to most of this on audio, then unexpectedly had time to actually finish reading the paperback. I couldn't put it down! I thought Card's comments following the audio were also worth the listen. I wanted my kids to hear some of his thoughts, but Libby took the audio away too soon. I immediately picked up a copy of the next one, Speaker for the Dead.

I am in my 50s, a woman, NOT the demographic Card was writing to, and I highly recommend this book. It challenges the conventional education industry.

(The movie was as bad as the book is good.) ( )

Thought at first it was going to be good but it bogged down in repetition of action and interaction and became boring and bleak until near the end. Would have been a better book with at least 100 fewer pages. ( )

The 1991 introduction was very interesting. It told how Orson Scott Card's career path veered toward play writing, the book came to be written, and the reaction to it, both positive and some very negative reactions.

Man tends to behave abominably towards his fellow creatures. By chapter 6 I was wondering if perhaps it would be better for the Buggers to win than the humans.

Ender is observant, a quick learner.

Friends turn out to be fickle or untrustworthy.

The last chapter was the best chapter. It (at least partially) made up for the deceitfulness of the adults and the meanness of the children. Although the last chapter was “redeeming,” yet there were some things in that chapter that went far beyond the usual suspension of disbelief. Since those concern the end, I placed those notes in a spoiler section of the review.

After Ender won, the prohibition against having more than two children was repealed because people from Earth set out to colonize other worlds. But wait, wasn’t it terribly expensive to just lift one person off the earth?

“Between 1970 and 2000, the cost to launch a kilogram to space remained fairly steady, with an average of US$18,500 per kilogram. When the space shuttle was in operation, it could launch a payload of 27,500 kilograms for $1.5 billion, or $54,500 per kilogram. For a SpaceX Falcon 9, the rocket used to access the ISS, the cost is just $2,720 per kilogram.” Note: The ISS is not outer space. Getting totally beyond Earth’s gravity is more expensive than getting to the ISS. Let’s do a calculation. Assuming a person has negligible luggage. With luggage 80 kg at $2,000 per kg is $160,000. Not only would a person need personal effects, but they also need a lot of food and facilities to care for their bodily needs. (Yes, they migh grow food - that requires energy, which isn’t free either.)

The buggers “knew” several years in advance that Ender would defeat them. Thus, they took some actions in advance. Okay, the ability to prophesy might not be so unusual. This goes beyond prophecy, this was the domain of a seer - seeing into the future.

They created the environment on their planet that he would recognize. They hacked the training game that Ender played inserting into it scenes on their planet that they he would later see and recognize. Hacking the computers of a completely different civilization, with totally different language and technology. They didn’t even use language!

They communicated mentally with him perhaps 5 years after they were all extinct, claiming to be a peaceful society. Their home planet was blown up into subatomic particles. Where again was this bugger planet that Ender temporarily lived on?

In such a large universe it’s amazing that we managed to locate their home planet.

Communicating mentally with another species from another planet years after being all dead? We can’t even reliably communicate with people of our own species. Not only that, they “knew” his future actions - that he would be “there” to receive that communication.

Tell me again about those bugger warships in the first invasion. Granted we initiated the 2nd and 3rd invasions. Still, they had warships that were terribly effective. Anyone familiar with the “arms race” knows that large weapons are not cheap to develop. You don’t spend massive resources developing weapons without a reason.

Were the buggers and the humans the only sentient creatures in the universe? The humans went around inhabiting former bugger worlds. Why didn’t the humans inhabit world that had not previously had buggers on them? Had the buggers taken over the whole known universe eliminating all other sentient species?

Thus, I conclude that Ender was probably deceived into believing that the buggers were a peaceful society. If so, then it is a scary thought that he was induced into taking that cocoon to plant on another world.

As a fervent aficionado of science fiction and a professor of English, I find Orson Scott Card’s “Ender’s Game” to be a seminal work in the genre, deftly blending the intricacies of human psychology with the grandeur of space opera. The novel’s exploration of strategic warfare and the ethical quandaries of leadership through the young, prodigious Ender Wiggin is both profound and provocative. Card’s eloquent prose and the depth of his character development invite readers to ponder the moral implications of war and the price of genius. It’s a compelling narrative that not only entertains but also challenges the intellect, making “Ender’s Game” an essential read for both enthusiasts and scholars of speculative fiction. ( )

I am aware that this sounds like the synopsis of a grade Z, made-for-television, science-fiction-rip-off movie. But Mr. Card has shaped this unpromising material into an affecting novel full of surprises that seem inevitable once they are explained. The key, of course, is Ender Wiggin himself. Mr. Card never makes the mistake of patronizing or sentimentalizing his hero.
