Ben on Card

by Tom Bozzo

Ben Brothers joins the Orson Scott Card fun:

The adults [in Ender's Game]... are preposterous figures without any apparent capacity for moral or intellectual thought, and in spite of this, Card is irritatingly self-congratulatory about the deep ethical dilemmas his (non-Ender) characters supposedly face...

This smugness is a bad habit even more visible in his later books... I’m inclined to see Ender’s Game as a one-hit wonder.
