Now you know why the book and movie of Ender’s Game are so different and why the book is better. The movie adds unnecessary parts to it like ender when Ender had gotten tranquilized. It takes out many important parts in the movie like when Ender goes to salamander army. It even uses some important parts, but switches important things like dialogue, action, and even points of time. I thought that these were good reasons why the book is so different from the
The book, Ender’s Game, is a book full of interesting events. A six year old boy named Ender Wiggin goes to Battle School, where he is continually tested and trained to become an elite commander. He succeeds at Battle School and eventually goes to Command School, where he leads his army to victory over the bugger troops. Because of this, the world is safe from being destroyed by the buggers. Even though Ender and his fleet are successful in defeating the buggers, Ender’s intelligence and skill is taken advantage of throughout the book. The I.F. takes away most of the freedom that Ender is entitled to and they manipulate him to do what they want him to do. This manipulation is quite evident throughout Ender’s Game.
By rising to power, hitler knew exactly what he was doing. By being manipulated by adults, Ender had no idea what he was doing. In a sense, the adults were more like Hitler, Stalin, and all other mass murderers than Ender was. Even in the trial of negligent homicide, Colonel Graff justified his abuse of Ender with the Nuremberg Defense and the exact same statement the Nazis used to justify their actions. Graff said he did “what [he] believed was necessary for the preservation of the human race” (Card 235). The I.F. did take control with extreme parallels to the Nazi takeover. But the colonel is not a complete Hitler figure. While Hitler’s attack in the Jews was completely unprovoked, the buggers had attacked Earth two earlier times, nearly destroying humanity. The situation this resembles the most is a violent end to the Cold war. Card wrote Ender’’s Game in ???? () in the middle of the Cold war. In Ender’s position, the war with the buggers is one that must end with the complete and utter destruction of one side the humans or the buggers. That outcome is exactly how a nuclear war between the US and the USSR would have ended with the total destruction of one side. Even the fact that Battle School is in space and how the Russians want to shoot it down represent the Soviet’s frustration at ultimately losing the space race. The fact that Orson Scott Card treats the
