I finished Speaker for the Dead a couple of days ago, which for those who don’t know, is the sequel to Ender’s Game. It’s one of the best books I’ve ever read.
It’s different from the first book, it scales back on the action and takes the character drama, the inner monologues, and the philosophical aspects up a notch. Ender is an adult in this book and feels like more of a grounded character this time around.
For those who have read Ender’s Game, I think what you liked or didn’t like in EG will be a good indicator of whether Speaker for the Dead is for you or not. If you primarily liked the battle school aspect and the strategic battles, you might not like this book that much. If you liked Ender’s Game for the Inner dialogue and the chemistry between characters, you’ll probably love this book.

Got a chance to see the Hilda movie over the weekend. I really enjoyed it. I especially liked how they delved into the troll mythos.

Nobody knows who the hell Moon Knight is. And Punisher isn’t exactly a hero. Or hated, his Netflix show was crazy popular and fans still discuss it along with the comics. He’s not “loved” but “hated” is a bit strong.
Speaking of Punisher, here’s another look at his new outfit.

The Nebulon B, despite its weird ass design of a dozen medical bays all stacked on top of one another and a barely armored thin spine which are both totally exposed, can at least be useful under certain circumstances.
The GR 75 on the other hand…
…shouldn’t be used for anything besides transporting Troops and Cargo.

load it up with explosives and you have a bigass space torpedo. It even look like it.

Yeah I heard. I bet the theater would actually went mad had they announced themselves by the time the movie ended.
If they had gone “Hey everyone” to the crowd after the second post-credit scene. OOF. Guaranteed at least one person would actually cry.

I wonder if a GR 75 loaded with powerful explosives would’ve altered this scene…
Certainly not enough to take down a Star Destroyer on its own but maybe cause some sort of temporary shakeup.

Which famous sci-fi book do you guys like more, Dune or Ender’s Game?
I love Dune, but I personally prefer Ender’s Game between those two. If someone said Dune though, I could see why.

I don’t normally share my writing with others until it’s finished, but I wanted to share this sentence I came up with. This might be the best sentence I’ve ever written.
“Detecting that she had royally screwed up, Kinomoto grimaced in horror as Kazumi sat there, a sense of impending doom waiting for her like the gargoyle statues that slumbering bides.”

Technically only that one particular N-B was a hospital ship.
N-Bs saw battle too, a believe it’s classed as a cruiser. It is, in fact, an escort frigate.
You know, I just thought about this:
I think before the Rebels were able to get a decent amount of Mon Calamari Cruisers, they used N-B’s as their main ships for combat against anything that ain’t an ISD and therefore probably repurposed the medical bays for something else.
So up until their fleet had some Major Cruiser Ship firepower, they likely didn’t store very many medical supplies in their N-B’s and likely moved all those duties to different ships for the most part.

Trees burn, mountains don’t. Just ask the Night Elves about that one.
Volcanoes don’t count because they’re supposed to be on fire.

I used to think oceans can’t catch on fire, but real life sure changed that belief.
So yeah, if you aren’t burning a mountain then you just aren’t trying hard enough.
Besides, you know what you have to do to live in a mountain? Dig. You know who digs? Dorfs.
You know what you have to do to live in a tree? Chop. You know who chops? The thing that lives on shelves.
Chopping > digging, it’s just math at that point!
