Re: Mandatory sci-fi

^Aside from the technically poor writing, my problem was more the obvious Mary Sue revenge-fantasy aspect and the really fucking dubious morality. I'm not talking about the child soldiers, kids killing kids, and genocide either. I'm fine with that...those themes can make for really good, thought-provoking fiction, but Ender himself: What a stand-up kid! He'd never beat anyone to death unless he had to...

Rebecca Watson reviewed it, and she sums up my feelings about it rather well.

The Enterprise is my TARDIS.
