4.0 étoiles sur 5 Ender's World 10 octobre 2013
Par Ender - Publié sur

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!

This is a wonderful book of essays that offer a variety of insights from different authors on why Ender's Game continues to be profound and influential in today's world.
- I loved learning that the novel went against Card's own writing rules. [To be fair though, the short story came out in 1977 (!) and Card may not have developed the rules until later].
- The depth of research that went into some of the essays was amazing and fantastic.
- We understand the impact of the novel when Aaron Johnson goes into how Ender is the cornerstone of child heroes.
- Card's writing is very on-point with how the United States military is run.
- Reflections on life lessons taught by the novel, and by Card himself.

Between each essay, Card answers different questions he's received over the years, providing a more comprehensive understanding of the Enderverse

3.0 étoiles sur 5 not all that fresh 6 octobre 2013
Par Arnold - Publié sur

I love edited volumes that provide more insights into my favorite works of fiction. Unfortunately, I didn't find this book to be all that insightful. Far too many essays lack focus and bring personal aspects into the story (one author seems to have a Napoleonic complex and views the world as conspiring against short people). Part of the problem is that most of the contributors to this volume aren't particularly famous in their own right so it's difficult to connect with them or understand why we should pay attention to their analysis.

That said, there are some useful essays. Kowal's essay about breaking the rules is very useful for writers as she talks about how Ender's Game breaks several writing conventions but also why. Stone's essay about the ending is a useful conceptualization of the main arc of the story and how the ending of the book really makes it stand out. I also enjoyed the two essays about military leadership and Ender's Game (by Col. Ruby and Schmitt). It turns out many in the military found Ender to be a useful model of successful military leadership.

Most of the other essays rehashed familiar territory or didn't necessarily enhance my enjoyment of the book. Too many were too introspective, with tangents into the authors' personal lives or experiences reading Ender. Again, I think the contributors could have been better selected.

The best part of the book is the interview with Orson Scott Card. The questions are focus on deeper aspects of the story and Card provides lengthy and insightful answers. Through the interviews, I learned why Ender's parents weren't well developed as characters and why Card has introduced some inconsistencies in later Enderverse books. I don't think the interview is available elsewhere and the book might be worthwhile just for it alone.

Overall, if you have spare money and love Ender, I'd recommend reading the interviews and select essays and skipping the rest. There are some insights to be gleaned from this book, but on average I'd give it 3.5 stars.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very Interesting Analysis of Ender's World 7 décembre 2013
Par Eva P. Scott - Publié sur

I purchased this book to give to a fan of Orson Scott Card. I read over half of the book before I passed it on to Orson Scott Card to sign. (He lives in the same city as I do, and we have a mutual friend. I've not met him yet.) Now, I'll have to purchase another copy to finish reading it. I didn't want to mess up the book before I gave it - ha!

The book is a compilation of authors who are giving ideas about Ender's World. Orson Scott Card answers questions that were sent in between compositions. The compositions are written by a variety of people on different angles of his story including a military person.

You will enjoy reading this book if you would like to see different perspectives of the stories, analysis of characters, and angles of the story from different perspectives. I found it to be an interesting book.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting analysis of one of my favorite books 3 janvier 2014
Par Craig - Publié sur

This book contains some really interesting essays analyzing Ender's Game from several viewpoints. Most of the contributors are authors, and they break down various elements of characterization, plot structure, and point of view. Singer-songwriter Janis Ian adds a whimsical discussion about short people, both in the novel and the real world. The best essays came from Matt Nix, a television producer, and John Schmitt, a retired Marine who explains how he incorporated concepts from the novel when he rewrote USMC strategy manuals.

Reading analysis of literature is never as much fun as reading the book itself, and the danger is that over-examination can kill the freshness of the story. The best way to just read one or two of these essays every couple of days.
