Ender's Game
« on: July 19, 2011, 11:59:09 PM »
This is just a quick recommendation for anyone who is in need of a book. The book is Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. It is a great sci-fi novel. It won both the Hugo and Nebula awards. I myself enjoyed. Hope you like it if you read it.

Hope You Like It

I will read this book. I will read this book. I will read this book. I will read this book. I will read this book.

...

Eventually!

No, I really want to read this book. It's been on my to-read list for ages... *sigh* I need to not sleep anymore. It's so inconvenient.

If you do read the book, please by it in a charity shop.  That's all I ask. And DO NOT read the other 'Ender' books. They are all pretty bad.

I haven't read this, but I find that I'm quite put off from reading anything by Card after starting The Lost Gate and getting bogged down with it. I had the hardest time getting through it, and eventually gave up on it. I'm not sure if it was the writing style, or the content of the story. <shrug>

Needless to say, I'm a little wary of attempting to read anything else by Card.

Enders Game is superb. A quite fantastic piece of sci fi. And a very quick read. Read one sequel, Children of the Mind. It was like the Phantom Menace to the Empire Strikes Back in terms of difference in quality. Wont be reading any more by him I guess . . .

I second the motion about buying his stuff second or third hand

He's an outspoken homophobe who actively preaches and donates money to organisations that will quite happily try to restrict the rights and futures of homosexual people in the US, as well as spreading his offensive views on the subject. I absolutely refuse to buy or read his work for that reason alone. I don't care how good Ender's Game is or isn't, because he's helping make the lives of homosexual people a misery.

It's fairly obvious by the fact the main 'enemy' in ender's Game is called 'The Buggers'. Also, that cover is horrible :(

Look. The first book was so good that I immediately lent it to my closest friend and we used Scott Card as cockney rhyming slang for awesome for a while. So I would totally recommend reading it as well. But be careful with what else you read by him . . .

So... What the heck happened then? How can someone write such an awesome book and then seemingly 'lose it' ????
