Format: Paperback
This book is an Insult to the rest of the series. All of the original charicters bar ONE, who was the most boring anyway, are gone.

Instead Orson decides to destroy the fantastic relationship's between all the charicters, fails to resolve the issues / tension between the two brothers and end's the book on a note that makes you think "What was the point in reading the series".

The book is a massive rant, that unless your a Mormon like OSC, you will not enjoy. It's a religious adaptation, not a sci-fi noval. Which is a shame because OSC is one of the best Sci-Fi authers out there.

Even if you are a Massive fan of the Homecoming Series or OSC, I highly advise you give this one a skip.

I can cope with the poor quality scanning resulting in incorrect wording be used as I got used to it with books 1 and 2, but to title this item as Number three in the series Only to find when you've read it that its number 5 thus ruining the reading of the real Book 3 and 4 as I know the outcome, is indefensible and unfair to a good author.
If you are thinking of buying this do not use Kindle as your guide as I did

As usual Mr. Card is an excellent writer but I was very disapointed that he didn't continue the characters from the previous four books which were absolutely wonderful. Please, Orsen write volume 4.5 to let us know what happened to our beloved characters. Volume 5 was good but a let down from the first 4.

What happened? I was anjoying this series and Card in general and then he drops this bomb. The whole book was something that could just be summed up in an epilogue in Earthfall. First of all, let me say that all the most interesting characters are gone. Shedemei is the only survingin one and she was the least interesting of all. This book seemed to drag along and we're left in the dark as to the nature of the keeper. The Keeper is almost desribed as magma flows that somehow create an intellegence. It's almost as if Card couldn't think of anything and just wrote that. Then there is the issue of one of the characters, Akma. Akma is obviously a metaphor for an Athiest of today. He is a person filled with hate and intolerance and is an insult to all Atheists. So the Keeper sends Shedemei down to strike him down for believing freely as he does. Don't stop reading Card after this one, though. This is far from his best and is still one of the best SF authors around

I completed this series about a year ago. This series was excellent from book 1 through 5. I disagree with the critics who wanted more of the same old characters from books 1-4. Book 4 adequately resolved the conflicts between those characters and there was simply no more to tell. Book 5 makes a seamless transition between the old and the new characters. It is classic Card, impressive in the depth of its character development, and in the exploration of human motivations. More important however, it showed that Card has great skill in setting mood and describing the environment. The question of who or what is the keeper of the Earth is finally answered, and I am somewhat suprised that some readers can't appreciate the answer. This is a fitting conclusion to a very good series. I just hope that Card leaves well enough alone and not spoil this body of work by writing another book in this series, as he did with Alvin Journeyman.

I don't think it was such a bad book. Some of the reviews on here almost scared me into not buying it. It was weird adjusting to the all new characters, but you find some similar qualities between the new and old cast. The worst thing about this book is that it never came to a solid conclusion. Like the rest of the Homecoming books, it left you wondering what was next. I thought the end of a series was supposed to come to a more solid conclusion. I DO suggest you buy it.
