The book starts off with Ender getting his monitor off. A monitor issomething that they but on the back of these peoples necks to see if they are agood candidate to be a general to fight the buggers. The buggers are aliens.Well, since he is not monitored anymore people who have always wanted to fighthim can now fight them. He ends up winning all of the fights and he goes home.As it turns out taking off his monitor was a test to see how he would handlepeople that fight him. A general then explains that he want to send Ender tobattle school so he can learn how to fight in space.
Ender decides to go. Whenhe gets there he finds out that it is very tough. He ends up killing 2 kids andbreaking count less numbers of bones in the 4 years that he is there. While heis there he plays a virtual reality game. When he beats the game the computermakes up a place called the end of the world.
There are some very disturbingthings here. Eventually Ender graduates battle school (2 years earlier thatanybody has ever graduated, he’s a genius.) He then goes to command school werehe learns how to control fleets of star ships. They put him in a simulator andhe is given many missions to fly. Then one day his inspectors say that today ishis final mission before they grade him. He up agents a whole planet and a vastnumber of ships. He ends up winning by using a secret weapon on the planet thatblows it up. When he finishes the battle he realizes that everyone is cheeringbehind him.
When he asks why they tell him that all of his missions were realones against the buggers and that he had just destroyed all of the buggers.My favorite character in this book is Ender. He is my favorite characterfor many reasons.
One reason is that he is really smart. He has a photographicmemory and he has a 200 IQ. He also could out smart adults when he was 5.Another reason why I like him is because he likes to play video games. He saysthat they make him even smarter. Another reasons why I like Ender is because hedoesn’t let people take advantage of him.My least favorite character in this book would have to be Peter Wiggin.I despise him for a few reasons.
First off because he is a jerk. He always beatsup Ender and Valentine. He does this because he always needs to be in control.Another reason why I don’t like peter is because he is just as smart as Enderbut he uses his smarts for evil purposes. He once skinned a squirrel with outkilling it so he could watch it die. Another reason why I don’t like him isbecause even after Ender saves the world he still doesn’t give Ender any respect.My favorite part in this book is when Ender defeats the buggers. This ismy favorite part for 3 reasons.
One, because the buggers have been destroyingmankind since the year 2034. Two, Because they are ruthless killers. Finallybecause they have been abducting humans since 1940. They would freeze them intubs or cut them open.My least favorite part in this book is when they take the monitor offEnder. I dislike this part for a few reasons. First off is because it is a verypainful process.
It has been in the back of kids necks since they were 4 andthey are taking it out when they are 6. They end up having to knock him out inorder to remove it. Another reasons is because after he gets the monitor takenoff he gets beet up. Another reasons is because everyone hates Ender becausewhen they take off your monitor that means you didn’t make it to the battleschool when infact he did make it.We’ll, I loved this book! I read the whole thing in less than a week.You should read it, especially if you like vivid descriptions.
I got to go. Seeyou later.Sincerely,Category: English
