Ender's Game (Ending Note)

I loved Ender's Game through and through.  There wasn't a dull moment.  It only took me about a week and a half or so to read it, my quickest read in months.  Shortly after my midpoint analysis I came to my final conclusion about the point-of-view.  It is third-person omniscient that happens to be rather limited, not third-person limited as I originally thought.  I gave the book 5/5 stars on goodreads.

I tore through the next book in the Ender Quartet, Speaker for the Dead, in only three days.  Other than the half-annoying/half-cool use of Portuguese, I loved it.  It was very different from Ender's Game, but it too received a 5/5.

In completely unrelated news: NaNoWriMo, bring it on.  There are only 28 hours until "go time".


  1. Loved Ender's Game. I found the climax most cleverly done. OSC is a fine writer. I had the privilege of attending one of his workshops earlier this year.

    1. I almost felt dumb when I didn't see the climax coming. So, yes, very cleverly done. I've only read two of his books, but Card is definitely impressionable to me. It must have been a great experience to go to one of his workshops.

      Thanks for reading!
