    Highly Romantic, but I cannot buy it, I'm afraid. Even if a writer has some talents, that never means that other specific writers could not be more talented, or that the writer is necessarily exempted from other forms of rational criticism.

    Ender's books:

    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    I probably won't read the prequels. I enjoyed the Ender series and Bean series, but the other books he's come out with since that fill in backstory could have been left unwritten. I think he's just greedy for some royalty checks.

    Did anyone go see the movie? I loved it. It wasn't perfect, but visually it was incredible. I hope the new Star Wars movies look more like this and less like episodes I-III. I didn't see one single scene that looked cartoonish or badly layered. I wish they had been able to go into
    Spoiler:
    Valentine and Peter taking over the nets,
    but that would have added another hour to the movie probably.

    enjoyed the film immensely.

    Never read the books (even with my voracious diet of SF consumption at an early age)

    I saw and enjoyed the movie. I hope they do SPEAKER FOR THE DEAD next.

    Spoiler:
    Wasn't Valentine and Peter taking over the world done mostly on computer? It's been a long time since I read the books. That might have been sort of boring on film? Just a speculation though.

    It was, but they spent a lot of time conversing between themselves on how to accomplish what they wanted, and that was an interesting dynamic. But it would have added a lot of time to the movie, and the audience members who hadn't read the books probably would have found it boring because it's not about Ender.

    Saw the movie and was pretty happy with it. I read the book 12-13 years ago; watching the movie I felt like they got the core of the book on to the screen from what I remembered.
