Ender’s Game has several gripping characters that largely contribute to the story. The three Wiggin siblings are like the three bears from Goldilocks and The Three Bears. Peter is like the father bear; his personality is too hard, just like the father bear’s bed. Valentine is like the mother bear; her personality is too soft, just like the mother bear’s bed. Then there was Ender. He is like the baby bear; having everything be just right. However, you couldn’t have a respectable story without any one of these three characters.

Plus, I am crazy about lobster, or at least, I used to be before I read all of the horrendous ways to kill lobster, which made me feel both a little guilty and horrified. Finally, as much as I wanted to stop reading, I couldn’t because it enthralled me so much. It was just so
