QUESTION: Several readers have asked this question: What is the theme of Ender's Game?

-- Submitted by many people

OSC REPLIES: - August 31, 1999

I can't help you at all, because, in my opinion, a good novel won't have "a theme." That's what essays have. Novels have a STORY. If your teacher is asking you to find themes in a novel, to me that makes about as much sense as looking for gears in a fish. So how can I possibly help you find "THE theme"? You can quote me.
