This is book one of a series. It's the best one in the series, in my opinion, a compelling story of a world watched over by the "Oversoul", an artifical intelligence.
Card is a great storyteller. This is the first of a series...The Homecoming. The planet Harmony has had tranquility for millions of years, but the "Oversoul" is dying. Things are coming apart. A GREAT READ!
I'm a big fan of OSC and I'm pleased with this series so far (after 1 book). It took a little longer to get into the book than usual, but I enjoyed it and am looking forward to the rest of the series.
Superb sci fi - the first in the Memory of Earth series by Card. Brilliant!
Orson Scott Card is one of my favorite authors. I've enjoyed every one of his books, including this one.
