** spoiler alert ** **SPOILERS**

I enjoyed Card's style of writing and felt a sense of "completeness" and "epic-ness" when the story was finished, as if everything in Ender's world came full-circle and made sense (well everything that was truly significant to the main story).

Ender seemed far too old for his six+ years throughout the story. I kept forgetting that he was just a child and not even into his teen years yet. Yes, he showed some signs of youth and innocence, but I wonder if it is possible for a child to act that "wise beyond his years" when he was still so young.

Some questions:

-What year(s) does this story take place in?
-Do you think Ender ever found a home for the Queen and the future buggers?
-If humans discovered a way to successfully and conveniently live on other plants, do you think many humans would go there? Would you?
-What do you think happened to the rest of the crew that helped Ender defeat the buggers?
-Do you think Endercould have fought in the war and won if he knew it was for real and not merely a game?
-What do you think about Anthony Wiggin's nickname "Ender" that is used throughout the story? Do you think it is a coincidence that he "ended" the Bugger wars, or do you think this is fate?
