It has been a while, if not forever, since I have posted anything here, and anything of substance I might add. I am quite curious to know what the reactions of people are in relation to the movie "Ender's Game" coming out here in November. As for myself, I am excited to see it, though, the last time I ever heard anything of Card, he was very skeptical about a movie. I just hope that there is indeed the sequels to follow, if the movie itself is any good.
Ender Wiggin is the main character in the book "Ender's Game", by science fiction writer Orson Scott Card. You can also follow up with Ender in the sequels; Speaker for the Dead, Xenocide, and Children of the Mind. What kind of boy is Ender Wiggin? In Ender's Game, Ender is introduced as a six year old. His real name is Andrew Wiggin. He has an older brother, Peter, and a younger sister, Valentine. Before Ender left for Battle School, he killed one of his class mates when he was being brutally harassed. When he was in Battle School, he killed another boy, when he was put in the position. After he was finished with Battle School, he was held responsible for killing a whole race of aliens known as the "Buggers"; xenocide. What kind of kid is this? Obviously he was very smart, or else he would not have made it into the IF Battle School. I wonder what he looked like? Do you have a depiction in your head of the "young" Andrew 'Ender' Wiggin? In the next book following Ender's Game, Speaker for the Dead, Ender is now an adult. What happened in all of that time in between? I do not want to dissect the books right now, but will just leave you with this for now. What do YOU think of Andrew Wiggin? Do you like him. Was he better as a kid or an adult? I will began constructing, if you would call it, sort of like an encyclopedia of all of the characters, and will be posting chapter by chapter synopsis of the books. Until then.
Welcome to my site, Ender's Game and More. This site will host an array of discussions and opinions on various Science Fiction writings and movies. What I hope to do with this is to gather opinions and ideas on the books listed on this site as well as books that are NOT listed here. I am a big fan of Science Fiction. I do most of my reading by listening to them on audio. Years ago, I found myself with time to read, but now, in order to get the information that I want, I download the audio format. The audio format fits my life style and I am able to get more stories read through out the year. I use audible.com to fill my library with audio-books. Although the title of this site is Ender's Game and More, I will include many other authors like Terry Brooks, Terry Goodkind, Ray Bradbury, as well as many others. Take a ride with me into the realm of Fantasy and Science fiction and escape reality. I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoy putting this together. I welcome any suggestions and/or feedback.
