Finally managed to get a hold of Ender's Game. I likely won't be watching the movie when it comes out, because as I've already said it seems to be completely missing the entire point of the book.
Read a little so far. Not really had the chance to sit down and get into it. I do like it so far, all reservations about the author and his political and religious beliefs aside.
So far, seen nothing of the homoerotic or just plain weird scenes. Frankly, it wouldn't shock me to learn they'd taken them out - Card apparently has been tweaking this story since its second publication.
If there's one criticism I have here, it's just that I'm trying to imagine a child Ender's age (not to mention his peers) behaving the way he does in this book, and it's just not working. At least not all of the time.
Anyway. In the meantime, I'm gonna go work on my own (crap, unknown) novel!
