Enders Game Vamsi Reddy 1. Two people are discussing a boy and his brother and sister. They finally decide that this is the boy that they need to protect the earth and destroy the bugger army. Ender is a six year old boy who is having his monitor removed. The monitor is a device that informs the authorities of all of Ender’s experiences. You can infer that the monitor makes Ender an outcast. When Ender comes back to class after having his monitor removed he is laughed at by everyone in the class. Most people tease him for being a “Third”, the third child. After school, while waiting at the bus stop ender is bullied by Stilson, an insecure boy in his class. When he is attacked by Stilson he kicks him in the chest and sees him fall over. He decides to stop them from bullying him ever again so he kicks Stilson viciously many more times. Ender then runs off and starts crying, he doesn’t want to end up like Peter. 2. The same adults start talking again and they compare Ender with Mazer Rackham. They eventually start worrying about Ender and how his brother, Peter, will react to the monitor being removed. When Ender returns home, instead of comforting Ender, Peter gets angry and forces Ender to play “buggers and astronauts”, a familiar children’s game. Instead of pretending to hurt Ender, Peter actually physically harms him. When Peter is about to kill Ender, Ender is saved by his older sister. Peter is convinced to let Ender go, but he remarks that he will kill Ender eventually. Once Peter thinks Ender is asleep he comes to his bedside and apologizes to Ender and tells him that he really loves him. 3. The adults start to talk again, but this time they discuss Valentine. They are afraid that Ender’s love for Valentine will stop him from coming with them, but they are convinced that they will get Ender to come with them even if they must lie. The Wiggin Family is eating breakfast when an International Fleet (I.F.) officer enters. After talking to Ender’s parents he takes Ender aside. First he asks about the fight Ender had with Stilson. Ender tells him the truth and how he wanted to make sure Stilson would never bother him again. The officer introduces himself as Colonel Graff and explains that he wants Ender to join Battle school. He explains that it will be tough to leave his sister, but his parents will not miss him. His father was Catholic and his mother Mormon, even though they let go of their religions the still believe. They see Ender as a social and physical barrier. He tells Ender that Battle school considered Peter, but he was to violent. As a result they asked for Ender’s parents to make a girl next… they were hoping for someone less violent. Valentine was too soft; finally, Ender was made as half-Peter and half-Valentine. Eventually Ender agrees to go to Battle school. 4.
