Opinions about Ender's Game in general from a somewhat ignorant Fan

   0


That's what Ender's Game is to me for all these years.

The movie is based on a book with the same name and it was written by Orson Scott Card. It was first published around 1985. That was my second book that I read when I was a kid. I just couldn't remember the name and I lost the copy when I moved to another place around the 90s. I didn't finish reading it at that time, but I know it's about kids that were specially created to defeat the aliens.

Few years back, when I was cleaning the "attic" of my house, I found a torn cover of the book and it all came back to me. I went mad looking for the book and I even troubled the lady that was working at Kinokuniya(A book store in my country) to find it for me.


This is the most accurate representation of the way I read books when I was kid. I don't. I day-dreamt about it though. [Source]


Skip forward few weeks after that, I finally got the book and I was happy, and I read the book practically everywhere. I love it to the teeth. I know it's written for children(I am 26 years old by the way), but IT IS a great book that is written for children; it doesn't treat the children like a Saturday morning cartoon would. For a science fiction book, it tackled real issues that many of the children(and surprisingly young adults) were, are and will be facing e.g. Expectations, Doubts, Arrogances, Loyalties, etc.

But in all honesty, the book is basically about a convincing version of kid Napoleon, leading kid soldiers to go to war with the aliens. And of course, this is the bloody Bible for most of the strategy games fan that loves futuristic warfare. And the movie adaptation is just so damn good(even though it is just a sneak peek).


Is there anyone else besides me that is looking forward to Harrison's Ford comeback in sci-fi flicks?

 

To be put simply I love the book and I'm split to find out that the author of the book is... well, a bigot and a homophobe. I'm sure many of the Enderverse fans are feeling the same way as I am. But in all fairness, I will watch this movie with a rainbow t-shirt. That, and I will do a Torchwood marathon with my buddies. And hold a sign on the street saying "Sorry that I watched Ender's Game. Love the movie, Love the book, not the author".


I leave this picture as a speculation to what I was trying joke about the author. [Source]
