I mean, I liked it...I just think it could have been better (although fear of it not being good enough is what kept it from being made any earlier).
Especially since they always went head first...also, I am pretty sure they got the positioning of the sacrificial body wrong on the move to escape from the battle they were late to.
I distinctly remember acting that out with my friend in my 8th grade English class...I think the book was fairly descriptive of how the bodies were oriented.

wtf, why was the alien and the queen egg just outside of ender's window?
Seriously, they didn't scout 200 meters from the edge of their base?
