I just noticed yesterday that my copy of "Ender's Game" jumps, and I wondered if one of you could look up to see what line/s are missed.

the most ruthless and unreliable human beings we've laid hands on. Why is he so important to Ender, after all this time?"

It's pages 132-133 in my copy if that's a help.

Thanks for any assistance you can give...

Then again, he IS ruthless and unreliable - if you're relying on him to do things your way - or the way he said he would do them.

No problem lonlywalker. Anyone on this board can do this, I just happened to be the first one. [Wink]

But he came a long way since then. I loved the way Peter turned out in SOTG. Especially his attitude toward Petra and Bean’s babies.
