  • i thought the movie was okay but i didn't really care for the high treason at the END (see what i did there) when he took the bug egg and what happened with that weird kid who he fought in the shower did he die or did he live needs to be explained

  • I started read Ender's Game two yrs ago and continued w/ the Shadow. I like Ender's Game much more (maybe b/c that gave me such a strong impression of how smart Ender was).

  • Check out some of the other comments. We had a little discussion with some other folks about just this topic!

  • Xenocide and Speaker are my favorites.

  • Ender in Exile is actually a really new entry into the "Ender's Saga" books. People wanted to know what happened to Ender after Ender's game, but before Speaker. That is Ender in Exile.

  • My preferred reading order.

    There is the Ender's Saga (or (The Ender Quintet), which is as follows;
    Ender's Game, Ender in Exile, Speaker for the Dead, Xenocide, Children of the Hive Mind

    Then there is the Shadow series (which follows Bean, before and after Ender's Game). They are as follows;
    Ender's Shadow, Shadow of the Hegemon, Shadow Puppets, Shadow of the Giant

    There are other "side" story's, or story's that happen during the events, or prequels. Don't bother with those.

  • I read Ender in Exile shortly after Ender's Shadow, which really elaborated on the period of time after the final battle. It was very enlightening (?).

  • I don't understand all this boycott nonsense. If I didn't read a book, watch a movie or TV series because I didn't like the religious, philosophical,or political views of anyone involved I'd never read or watch ANYTHING. There is probably something about the actors in the movie I wouldn't like. I don't want to know. I'm not interested in their private lives. All see the movie because I read the book. What the cast or staff are like outside the film I don't care, not relevant to the movie.

  • Speaker of the dead and xenocide are very different from ender's game. I believe the best way to read them would be Ender's Game then Ender's shadow. and from there you can decide whether to keep reading ender's path or bean's path (Bean is the main character of Ender's shadow). Definitely try both and then decide. Those 2 are my favorite books

  • It's only a 'spoiler' if you've read the books. If you haven't read the books, it just looks like part of a big battle sequence.

    Geek Crash Course July 6, 2020 9:25 am Reply
  • I read Ender's Shadow right after Ender's Game. It gives you a really interesting "two sides of the coin"-type of view of Ender's game. I'd recommend Speaker after that. -Diana

  • Xenocide is my fav

    Chad Erickson July 6, 2020 9:25 am Reply
  • You have to read Speaker for the Dead. It's one of the best scifi works of secular humanism there is. Which is, obviously, totally ironic given Card's political views. He doesn't hate homosexuals mind you, I can't believe someone who actually hates a population of his fellow countrymen can write something like Speaker, the man and the book might seem antithetical to one another. I think he takes his Mormonism way too seriously, like most Mormons, but he made the mistake of being vocal.

    Nornagast July 6, 2020 9:25 am Reply
  • I read Speaker for the Dead next, which is the next published novel in the series, but it depends on your desired experience. Publication order (Speaker, as mentioned)? Chronological order (Ender's Shadow and War of Gifts are concurrent, Shadow of the Hegemon is next after the events of Ender's, and Earth Unaware is the first of the prequel novels. It's up to you! -Michael

  • So what i wonder is,in what order are you suppose to read these books? I just bought enders game today.so what comes next? Enders shadow?

  • It seems the trailer is spoiling the ending.

  • i started reading this i think when i almost started 6th grade and reread it twice and i'm re reading it again because of the movie, now i'm in 8th, and i am seriously still in love with this book.

  • I remember reading the book freshman year of high school (2003-2004) and pretty much by the end of the school year read all of the books he had written up to that point. It is the one book I've read in school that I've completely fallen in love with.

  • I can't get into this book because I don't connect with the main character at all

    Soupy Pupper July 6, 2020 9:25 am Reply
  • I didn't like Enders shadow much. Mostly because it made me feel bad and disillusioned that ended wasn't always the best like I had believed.

  • I've never heard Michael say a swear before, THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!! Nah I'm just screwin' with you. You guys are awesome

  • For what it's worth, we shot this episode somewhere around 2AM. It didn't register to either of us at the time that we were saying the wrong name. 🙁

    You have to watch video. That's why it's a VIDEO and not an audio podcast.

    Thanks for playing!

  • There have been so many incarnations of Sherlock Holmes that it's hard to zone in on one. I'd love to do the original stories for an Academic August, but BBC's Sherlock is incredible and apparently Elementary isn't too shabby either. I think we need to wait a bit for these to wrap up so we can make better comparisons of original material to modern adaptations. -Diana (adding my two cents)

    Geek Crash Course July 6, 2020 9:25 am Reply
  • Mythbusters doesn't really need a GCC. I've been working on a Sherlock Holmes multi-adaptation GCC for a little bit that's not ready for primetime just yet. I think that the Jay and Silent Bob series doesn't really need a GCC either, honestly. -Michael

  • on the contrary, movie Rackham looks much cooler than before

    manofsan July 6, 2020 9:25 am Reply
  • why are both of you dressed like you're going to Battle School?

    manofsan July 6, 2020 9:25 am Reply
  • I'll give you the power of the internet, but zero gravity? Science: Card does it wrong. It's hard to make a book compelling when it's just based on a bunch of misconstrued assumptions feigning fact.
    Also, the bugger race would have been much more interesting if the pacing was better, to me the book either seemed rushed or held out depending on the part.
    Generally, I probably wasn't going to particularly enjoy this book from the start. I like characters who seem like people, not preachers.
