Likes and Dislikes: I found this book quite interesting. I especially enjoyed reading the parts where Ender talked with or about Valentine like in chapter nine where he receives Valentine’s letter. I liked reading this part because even though Ender knew Valentine’s letter was monitored and approved by the teachers it still released a flood of emotions from him.
