Honestly, I fail to see what's so great about Ender anyway. If you were to start reading from the end I actually tried it you would have no idea of what was happening to whom. Among the first colonists is Valentine, who apologizes that Ender can never return to Earth, where he would be exploited by Peter and other politicians to fulfill their own purposes.
However, as they were genetically related to the Formics, they had some capacity for Philotic communication and thus could recieve mental impulses. Actually, that is understating it. Actually, that is understating it. Ultimately, Ender end up being a squadron leader for the Phoenix Military, which Petra leads.
The eldest, Peteris a highly intelligent sociopath who sadistically bullies Ender, while his sister, Valentineis more sympathetic towards him. In a commentary track for the 20th Anniversary audiobook edition of the novel, as well as in the Author's Definitive Edition, Card stated that Ender's Game was written specifically to establish the character of Ender for his role of the Speaker in Speaker for the Deadthe outline for which he had written before novelizing Ender's Game.
No background, no depth, no internal conflicts. On Earth, Peter Wiggin uses a global communication system to post political essays under the pseudonym " Locke ", hoping to establish himself as a respected orator and thence as a powerful politician.
I expected it to get better. To more complex organisms like the Formic workers, the Hive Queens would give general or specific instructions. Ender, now ten years old, is promoted to Command School on Eros after a brief respite on Earth.
For Ender, the training is tough. I loathed Ender's Game. The Queen was considerably larger than Ender, with a face reminiscent of an ant's, insect-like limbs and two huge wings.
As the centuries bore on, however, the Formics refined their colonization techniques. Ender is brilliant at everything.
I say this as a high-school nerd in my own day, as the reviled and hated and made-fun-of socially awkward kid who wanted to be good at whatever they did. 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.
Despite this, Ender becomes depressed by the battles, his isolation, and by the way Mazer treats him. Mazer explained that they were becoming overpopulated, contained on one planet, and were collecting water from comets. In turn, each of the new Queen's daughters convinced its own daughters into working together, until after several generations the descendants of that first forward-thinking Hive Queen had eliminated all of the other nests and spread across their homeworld.
I expected it to get better.
Valentine interferes to protect him from the bullies, along with from Peter. Ender goes up there, trying his best to become promoted in the difficult training scheme; his brother and sister are trying to restore the world and to make it a better place. Let the hate flow through you.
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. Ender takes the egg and, with information from the Queen, writes The Hive Queen under the alias "Speaker for the Dead".
He has written books in several genres, but is primarily known for his science fiction. The novel tells the story of a young boy, Ender Wiggin, who is sent to a training academy named Battle School, located in orbit above the Earth, built to train people to become soldiers that will one day battle against a vast alien race known as "Buggers".
Valentine, despite not trusting Peter, agrees to publish alongside him as " Demosthenes ". There, he discovers the dormant egg of a bugger queen, who reveals that the buggers had initially assumed humans were a non-sentient race, for want of collective consciousnessbut realized their mistake too late, and requests that Ender take the egg to a new planet to colonize.
How will Ender perform in real combat conditions. The Hive Queens bioengineered organisms to perform specific tasks, like processing metal and building structures. Immediately following the miraculous defeat of the Formics in the Second Invasion, every available warship was sent out by the International Fleet to attack the Formic's own planets, driving towards their homeworld.
