That’s the message from this ex-fan of Ender's Game. Her analysis was spot on and wrecked his ability to enjoy Orson Scott Card’s books — which is a good thing. We should learn to read critically.
I can sympathize, though. When I first read Ender’s Game, I’m ashamed to admit that I got sucked in, too — it’s a wonderfully highly polished Mary Sue, which leads a strong character with whom you identify through a series of moral dilemmas in which, in every case, he makes the simplistic, evil choice, with plenty of post hoc rationalizations about why he had to do it. I didn’t realize it until I was half-way through the second book, and it sunk in…”wait a minute…he committed genocide and now I’m reading a long story in which he wallows in self-pity?”
I also learned something new. There are 15 books in the Ender’s Game series. Jeez, the man is milking it.
