Journal Essay, Research Paper

This week I read Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card. I read

from page 1 to 353.

The book starts off with Ender getting his monitor off.

A monitor is something that they but on the back of these

peoples necks to see if they are a good 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 fight him 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

handle people that fight him. A general then explains that

he want to send Ender to battle school so he can learn how

to fight in space. Ender decides to go. When he gets there

he finds out that it is very tough. He ends up killing 2 kids

and breaking count less numbers of bones in the 4 years

that he is there. While he is there he plays a virtual reality

game. When he beats the game the computer makes up a

place called the end of the world. There are some very

disturbing things here. Eventually Ender graduates battle

school (2 years earlier that anybody has ever graduated,

he’s a genius.) He then goes to command school were he

learns how to control fleets of star ships. They put him in a

simulator and he is given many missions to fly. Then one

day his inspectors say that today is his final mission before

they grade him. He up agents a whole planet and a vast

number of ships. He ends up winning by using a secret

weapon on the planet that blows it up. When he finishes the

battle he realizes that everyone is cheering behind him.

When he asks why they tell him that all of his missions

were real ones 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 character for many reasons. One reason is that he is

really smart. He has a photographic memory 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 says that they make him even smarter.

Another reasons why I like Ender is because he doesn’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 beats up 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 Ender but he uses his smarts for evil

purposes. He once skinned a squirrel with out killing it so

he could watch it die. Another reason why I don’t like him

is because 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 is my favorite part for 3 reasons. One,

because the buggers have been destroying mankind since

the year 2034. Two, Because they are ruthless killers.

Finally because they have been abducting humans since

1940. They would freeze them in tubs or cut them open.

My least favorite part in this book is when they take

the monitor off Ender. I dislike this part for a few reasons.

First off is because it is a very painful process. It has been

in the back of kids necks since they were 4 and they are

taking it out when they are 6. They end up having to knock

him out in order to remove it. Another reasons is because

after he gets the monitor taken off he gets beet up. Another

reasons is because everyone hates Ender because when they

take off your monitor that means you didn’t make it to the

battle school 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. See you later.
