3.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting But Unlike Its Source Not Required Reading 13 mai 2013

Ender's Game was published in 1985 and it is unquestionably a science fiction classic. One of a relatively small list of genre defining works. It was followed fairly quickly by Speaker For The Dead and Xenocide which appeared to be a conclusion to Ender's story.

Orson Scott Card has written a lot of other stories, but about 15 years ago it seems he recognized a commercial reality and began a series of expansions of the Ender universe. It's certainly valid to wonder at whether there is any real literary value to that. This book is a little different however. Instead of additional fiction it presents a series of essays by various individuals about Ender's Game.

The result is an interesting mixture of topics. For me personally some of the most interesting were the writing related ones and the military ones. I was not previously aware that Ender's Game was recommended reading in some military circles.

Also interesting on a more abstract level were the essays by people who saw Ender's Game as presenting a world view they agreed with. Some of these didn't really match each others which does say something about the way that Ender's Game speaks to many people in different ways.

The other element of the book is a series of Question and Answer session with Scott Card himself. These questions range from wondering about the motivations of certain characters to asking about the reasons Card made certain decisions in the writing of the book.

I certainly wouldn't classify this as essential reading. And I'm not sure I could even say that it throws new light on the book, which has always stood perfectly well on it's own and certain didn't require anything more than the trilogy to flesh it out.

However, I did find the result very interesting and it does give you an understanding of why Ender's Game is as significant as it is.

In my personal reading of the book, I found 'Ender's World' enjoyable. The essays themselves are wonderfully written, mainly because they were written by a diverse group of fans. Each essay dives deeper into the creation of `Ender's Game' and offers insight into the world of writing and Ender's universe.

I think `Ender's World' would make a strong addition to any `Ender's Game' collection. Long time fans of the Enderverse will enjoy "fresh perspectives" on `Ender's Game,' as well as Card's answers to some popular questions. 'Ender's World' would also make a great addition for classrooms and book clubs. Each essay would work well to guide a discussion of the original science fiction classic. Although `Ender's Game' is part of my everyday discussion on this website, I was most surprised at some of the theses.

I only have two complaints about the `Ender's World.' Firstly, I wish Card has spent more time answering questions. Sometimes he lets his wit speak, rather than give a full answer, which is a tad disappointing. Secondly, while I like the cover, I would have preferred the original battle school design from Steve Sywak and Darian Robbins. All in all, the many unique views on `Ender's Game' make this piece suitable for all demographics. I would recommend this book to everyone who has read `Ender's Game' and to those people who will be leading discussions on the novel. Card's Q&A with fans make this a must buy, because everyone wants to know how he feels about Apple ripping off his desk design!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fun Analysis of the Classic SF Novel 7 mars 2014
Par Neil Hepworth - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Ender’s World is a wonderful collection of essays (solicited solely for this book - not that it’s a bad thing) and Q&As with Orson Scott Card. Both items hads their low points, but the great essays and questions are well worth it. In case you couldn’t tell from my opening paragraph, I think those best served by the book would be English teachers who teach the book (me) and those who really want to analyze Ender’s Game through as many lenses as possible. Let me hit some highlights:

“How It Should Have Ended” by Eric James Stone: The first essay in the book was just great. Mr. Stone talks about how most authors would have ended with Ender as the victor, reveling in new found fame and glory. But no, Ender’s Game ends in emotional butchery and resurrection (hm, that actually describes it really well. Go me.). Great essay.

“Rethinking the Child Hero” by Aaron Johnston: This essay starts by showing how well the character of Ender meets the definition of the hero as outlined by The Hero with a Thousand Faces. But, even better, Mr. Johnston then shows how Ender as a child hero breaks with the traditional passive child hero and instead brings about the mover and shaker child hero that is the standard today (Harry Potter, Katniss, etc.) Also a great essay.

“Ender Wiggin, USMC” by John F. Schmitt: I’d always known that somewhere in the military Ender’s Game was required reading. And while I kinda understood why, Mr. Schmitt (who apparently is responsible for this required reading) explains exactly why. It’s so cool. Not to take anything away from OSC, but this required reading is even more impressive given OSC’s relative inexperience with the military. OSC is an avid study of history, and, I guess, it shows. Also a great essay. (I need to find a new adjective.)

“Ender’s Game: A Guide to Life” by Matt Nix: Mr. Nix is the creator of the TV show Burn Notice. I’m not a close follower of the show (seeing as how I don’t have cable), but every time the show pops up on syndication, I watch it. It’s a great (darn it, there’s that adjective again!), highly entertaining show. One of my favorite parts of the show is the slightly snarky voice over of Michael Westen that glues the scenes together. Imagine Michael Westen writing about the life lessons he learned from reading Ender’s Game and you’ve got this essay. Okay, maybe not exactly, but that’s what it made me think of. I loved it.

Finally, in case the essays weren’t enough, you get some straight answers from OSC about a wide variety of topics. Wanna know more about where IF or the Battle School came from? He tells ya. Wanna know what OSC was thinking when he created some of the characters? He tells you that, too. My personal favorite Q&A was the one where OSC discuss whether or not Ender’s Game glorifies war. Very thoughtful answer.

If this all sounds interesting to you, then this is a good (great!) book for you to spend time with. Highly recommended.

A note to Barnes and Noble: Uh, the Young Adult section? Really? I would understand if you placed it on both the YA shelves and the normal SFF shelves, but just the YA shelves? Um, yeah, no. Unless you have new statistical data that a new crop of seventeen-year olds are going to be jumping up and down to read more essays about literature. I’d like to meet these students. And steal them for my own classes. Anyway. I clearly digress...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Ender's World and Beyond 14 mai 2013

If you've ever been intrigued about what went into the creation of Ender Wiggin's universe or wondered what other fans of the story think about it, or maybe just want to know more about the universe from the perspective of people in the know, then you need to read this anthology. It is full of insightful and interesting opinions on all aspects of Ender Wiggin's Universe from how it teaches leadership to how it compares to today's attitude towards children and Teens. I enjoyed every single bit and was delighted with the question and answer sections where Orson Scott Card answered many questions from the other writers that I would have loved to have asked him myself. So, even though I don't read non-fiction that often (especially not essay type stuff) this one is a very definite reread book on my shelf from now on

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great addition to your Ender's collection! 12 juillet 2013

Brought to you by OBS reviewer Sammy

This book is a fabulous addition to Ender's World. Many times I will not review a book if it has many authors, because then you have to pick a really great one or one you don't care for. Having said that, each story adds wonderful information and a depth of understanding and ideas that as an individual you might not have felt or seen as you read these stories. So in this instance I don't have to pick one over the other. Which says a lot about all the people adding ideas and questions. Wonderful job!!!

I highly recommend this book to anyone who has read any of the Ender Saga. It will have you looking at things in new and exciting ways. I also, recommend this book to people who have not read any of the stories, just beware there are spoilers, so if you don't like spoilers pick up Ender's Game first. It is one of my favorite Sci-fi reads out there, intelligent, thought provoking with awesome characters. Great series.
