    Card has a very obvious exhibitionism fetish. That’s the one thing I remember about the book. Everything else is kind of a blur

    hey I found my copy of this the other day
    Where do you go nowadays for sci-fi reccs since the Hugo & Nebula Awards are not that useful anymore

    That storyline about his bro&sis becoming influential decision makers for Earth by making up an online identity, seems prescient.
    ^ by the time the world finds out that they're not even adults, they world is already too invested in to pull out

    I could see something like this happening, as content produced by generative tools become more difficult to differentiate from reality

    what should I read next? from scifi classics I've read:
    >Book of the New Sun 1
    >Ender's Game 1
    >Neuromancer 1
    > Dune mainline series
    >Canticle for Leibowitz
    >Warhammer 40k Eisenhorn

    Im checking out the Uplift series and considering reading Fahrenheit 451 (no idea what it's about). Heard good things about a psychedelic one called Z___ Master, something like Zombie Master from the 70's I think or along those lines

    cheers

      What fricking literature class is having kids read Ender's Game?

      Like it's not a particularly impressive work of literature or culturally significant.

      Books used to be chosen because of their unique literary style, good writing fundamentals, or cultural significance.
      Orson Scott Card’s works are not impressive in any of these categories.
      Unlike traditional choices for lit class like the Crucible, To Kill a Mockingbird, or Shakespeare's shit.

        Read this in middle school, only talking point everyone had was how weird and gay (as in homosexual) it was.

        NTA but for me it was some kind of reading-focused elective, not a main english class.

          Because it is. Orson Scott Card’s self hatred and suppressed homosexuality is dripping on every page. It's his Dorian Gray.

        A school who encourages children to read and not just letting them wallow in misery by forcing them to read multiple classics that take a long time to really gestate and thus will spoil their reading fun. Shit man if i was a teacher i would also put in some fun fantasy/sci fi to make reading fun.

    Were all of his training situations actual battles or just his final few?

    The movie had potential to be good but a lot of children actors are hard to direct plus Harrison Ford phoning it in as usual.

      At first they were training, to train Ender to use the program.
      When Rackham didn't let him rest between sessions, they were real battles.

    Orson Scott Card is a closeted homosexual (and potentially a pedophile) his conservatism is 100% him trying to force his deviancy back down.

    But there are way too many overly descriptive parts of young boys bodies and thick sexual tension throughout the novel. There is no book that is more homosexual than Ender's Game that hates itself for being homosexual. Card's perversions and stare of mind slather this novel.

    Orson Scott Card grew up in a time and a religion that would have potentially killed and if it didn't he would be a pariah and hated.

    If you don't see the gayness in the novel then I have some scary news for you. You might be just like OSC.

      The first book is pretty much a standalone book and the three sequels are very different.
      And yeah obviously it has descriptions about boys because the book has very few characters who are not young boys

        And Animal Farm is mostly animals yet Orwell doesn't spend multiple pages describing their nude bodies in a shower...

        The descriptions card gives are perverse and unnecessary for the story. He's a fetishist.

      If you read between the lines of his books and the things he's stated publicly I think it's pretty clear that he was abused as a kid

      Virtually everything since women have started voting is pozzed. It's a matter of degrees, and tilting away from Harry Potter towards Ender is a move in the right direction.

    Ender's Game is just as gay as Harry Potter. All "young adults" novels are gay and moronic. Make your class read Camus or something, not that YA trash

      >Make your class read Camus or something
      We read The Stranger by Camus in its original language in French class in Grade 12 (that is, 16-17 years old, the last grade before starting University)
      I remember the vocal opinion from other classmates being:

      >uhhh le professeur, this book is le stupid!
      >why didn't he defend himself in court?
      That was right before social media blew up. Can't imagine students today would fare much better. Not saying their critique is without merit, but I don't think they got much from reading it

    The books take interesting twist after the first one
    much more philosophy and in a good way

    Still remember the 4th book and the chapter where Miro is super mean to young Val
    so that she would want to die
    hit me out of nowhere like a truck.

    >No one wants you here, just die, let go, you are not a real person
    >you are just manifestation of what Ender would like to be
    >you really think I could love that?
    >just die, give up your body

    It would be 100% kino if someone could bring it to the big screen.
