I noticed that too

I doubt you'll be missing much.

The book was good, but honestly, there are tons out there that are more entertaining and just better.

I reread it last year and it's still a good book, but was so much more enjoyable the first time I read it when I was 14 or 15. I think it's one of thosr novels better appreciated during youth than when older (I was so sympathetic to Ender's parents this time, lol)

Yeah, it is that good as to hold up, but I think it was more suited to the era in was published in. I was in my early 20s when I finally got around to reading it and appreciated it as it was. The problem is, that it really was when you get down to it, an early article of sorts on kids video gaming. It was interesting but also silly when thought on. I still recommend the book, but not it's sequels.

Card is really not all that great a writer. I read or should say, tried to read his shitsandwich Ultimate Iron Man mini. UGH! So I pretty much find avoiding his stuff not all that hard.

I haven't read his comics work, but in terms of prose writing, I disagree. He is excellent at universe building (Ender, Red Prophet, Shadow/Bean) and his standalone works (short stories and full-length novels) are quite good. His biggest flaw (in terms of writing) is trying and failing spectacularly to end a series. He would better serve his works by leaving open endings.

A lot of his stuff just never interested me and was never really recommended to me by friends or others back in the day. Ender was good, Shadow was okay, I read the first part but stopped once it began retelling elements from the original. Friends had little good to say about it, so I never had the drive to continue. Speaker For The Dead was just crap. I hated that it was really nothing more then a story that leads to a sequel which leads to another... hate that. Start as a series or keep the stories stand alone. Also, I could do without the cultural or political theories he always wants to impart. Basically, I found he soap boxed his views too much.

Like Grant Morrison, he cannot achieve closure. They're sex partners must be so happy. :P
