[quote:Anonymous Coward 865798:MV8yMjgwMTE5XzM4ODk1NjI4XzUzODRDMTk1] OK, I just ordered a few hardback books starting with #5 in the series, [i]Ender's Shadow[/i]. btw, I get my books from this AWESOME website that has $30 (hardback) books and for $6. http://www.bookcloseouts.com/ [/quote]
Tomorrow afternoon we discuss once I am done with work. I picked this book off my shelf today after not having read it for at least 15 years. I plowed through it and am almost done, but am a little too drunk to discuss it now. I will wait for tomorrow.
Until then feel free to discuss without me.
The number one thing that strikes me is the day to day technology they use. Card was a fucking visionary, the things that don't even exist today, you can see technology leading to.
The other thing that strikes me is the manipulation his siblings use of "the net" (what we would consider forums today). He wrote the book in 1977, how the fuck did he know about the internet?
Anyways, I will get more into this thread tomorrow, headed to bed now. Going to finish the book and work tomorrow, be back after.
God damn the book was practically falling apart. Old, paperback, turning colors and falling apart.
