A teacher is on leave because a parent complained Ender’s Game is “pornographic.” My 9-year-old’s reading it. I’ll ask. http://t.co/gyU6a33T

  1. Really? I know it dealt with some mature subject matter, but nothing like that. I was wondering which of my SF books I was going to dangle in front of my kid after he finishes the Hunger Games trilogy and Ender did come to mind.

    1. It’s been so long since I read it I don’t remember anything that might be objectionable in it. Wondering now if it’s appropriate for a 9-year-old. (Technically he is still 8, but his birthday is next week.) So far, he says he’s enjoying it. The 11-year-old is trying Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. I hear him laughing when he reads it so that’s a good sign.
