Ender's World: Fresh Perspectives on the SF Classic Ender's Game based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
Purest hagiography by people who should know better. Even people who don't know about his crazy homophobic stances (he truly believes that if the USA allows gay marriage, he's going to lead an armed overthrow of the gov't) should catch on to his morality of women being second class citizens, white folk #1, having children the only true purpose in life, then turning right around and subjugating them to evil tortures. Gays can never be happy -- they either suffer and die, or father children in loveless marriages. And yet the young male characters are always pretty boys with glistening lips who do a LOT of naked wrestling. Hmmm. Plus the giant gobs of undisguised Mormon philosophy, big Mary Sue tendencies, constant reliance on the "Chosen One" trope, and writing that's gotten WORSE over his career. TL;DR: unbelievable, unworthy, sucky.
Ender’s World was an intriguing read. It's a book that readers will truly enjoy whether you’re a fan of the series, or just picked it up the for the fun of science fiction. It’s a backstage pass into the universe of Ender Wiggin. It's full of insightful and interesting opinions on all aspects of his universe from how it teaches leadership, to how it compares to today's attitude towards today's youth. I highly recommend this anthology to anyone who’s read Ender’s Game. Plus, being a teacher myself, I think this book would be a good tool for teachers who have the book in their course syllabus.
