No one can beat Ender – not at anything. Ender is the smartest boy in the world, but he also has some serious hand-eye coordination, is very empathic and caring, and, um, is the best killer out of all the Battle School kids. This might strike you as a little unfair to every other character in Ender's Game, as if Orson Scott Card was tipping the scales a little too much for Ender. Sure, we could look at it like that. But how about this: even though Ender is so amazing at everything, he’s really not a happy little boy. The Battle School is set up so that genius kids will compete to see who’s the best, but just because Ender ends ups winning all the competitions doesn’t mean we should envy him. Maybe there’s something else to life than being the strongest and most skilled. But what could that be?
