Descriptions du produit

From Library Journal

Following the sometimes dubious directives of the dying Oversoul--an orbiting computer that has preserved peace on the planet Harmony for millennia, Naifeh and his family prepare to voyage to the stars in search of the planet called Earth. With characteristic insights into the moral nature of the individual, Card explores the ramifications that face those persons chosen to answer a "higher call." This second volume of the "Homecoming" will appeal to the author's many fans and is a good purchase for most libraries.

Présentation de l'éditeur

As Harmony's Oversoul grows weaker, a great warrior has arisen to challenge its bans. His name is Moozh, and he has won control of an army using forbidden technology. Now he is aiming his soldiers at the city of Basilica, that strong fortress above the Plain.

Basilica remains in turmoil. Wetchik and his sons are not strong enough to stop a army. Can Rasa and her allies defeat him through intrigue, or will Moozh take the city and all who are in it?

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 et demi 13 juillet 2009
Je viens de finir le 2eme tome de la saga Homecoming. L'histoire prend doucement forme, les personnages sont de plus en plus familier et on a plaisir à les suivre. Le style et les personnages sont parfaits. L'histoire n'avance pas énormément mais les relations entre les personnages évoluent bien. Certes le côté un peu trop biblique (très reconnaissable) peut déranger mais ce n'est qu'anecdotique. J'ai hâte de recevoir la suite pour retrouver les personnages dans leurs pérégrinations!
PS: J'aurais voulu mettre 4,5 car le trouvant mieux que le premier tome auquel j'avais mis 4.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Definitely worth the read! 23 juillet 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
This book exemplifies why Card is one of my favorite authors. His characters are multi-dimensional and complex. Nafai is a likeable hero, but not without his faults, and even Elemak (one of Nafai's enemies) has some admirable traits. And Moozh makes a wonderful addition to this story. Yes, I admit some of the dreams were a little transparent, and the politics were a bit tedious, but it's still a great read. It also sets up magnificently for book three, which I couldn't wait to get my hands on after reading this one. Good job, Mr. Card!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Top notch Card 24 janvier 2004

Format:Poche|Achat vérifié
This is an all around excellent book. An incredible cast of characters, a great plot, plenty of crazy twists and turns, and dialect that brings it all to life. While all of the characters from the first book play a big part in this one too, the new character, General Moozh, puts this book on a diferent level. It's going to be hard for the rest of the series to live up to expectations if General Moozh isn't replaced by someone as likeable. However, this books leaves off with the Earthbound party just leaving Bascilica, so the rest of the serires should hold some great excitement. This book was enhanced by the abundancy of dreams, in my opinion. It brings a somehow more serious and meaningful prospective to the whole story. I just hope that the rest of the series can live up to such a high standard.
One question: What scene is the cover of the book depicting??

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Seems like a filler if anything 27 mai 2006
Par R. Weiss - Publié sur
After reading the first book in the homecoming saga I was fairly dissapointed in The Call To Earth. The 2nd book seemed to lack any real substance. There really is nothing going on, it seems to me that Card made this book as a filler. There are a bunch of useless characters and useless events, this book could easily be condensed to around 200 pages and be much better than it is now. Personally I did enjoy it, although I have to admit more then a few times I dosed off reading the book and skipped a few pages simply to try to stop the boredom. I am hoping this book is a build up to the 3rd book in the series, if not Im afraid the rest of the saga may be just as bad if nto worse.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fills the pot-hole 6 juillet 1999
Par - Publié sur
Well, it's not the same quality as the rest of the road, but it fill the gap between 1 and 3. I still liked it, don't get me wrong, but I still like the Memory of Earth better. And I won't compare it to Ender's Game #1) because I've never read it (I know many of you are shieking right now) #2) because they are different books. Of course it's "no Ender's Game", because it's not. Just cuz the man can't turn out his absolute best every single time, don't hold it against him. It's a good book. If you're reading the whole series, then it's a must-read, just so you don't miss anything.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Dragged Out 9 novembre 1999
Par Daniel Wright ( - Publié sur
First of all, compoaring this work with the Enders series is not exactly fair. They are very different series in both direction and intent. Ender's Game was always intended to be a 'deep' book, while the Homecoming series is simply action adventure scifi. In that, it serves its purpose. The problem with this volume is that after the speed of the first book, this one drags out considerably. It seems to take all of the characters to take all the book to get from A to B, when it all could have been done in a few chapters and we could have gone on to C, D, and maybe even ... yes E. Still, it keeps you going, and several new plot elements are put into play, and I am looking forward to the next three books. But to get from Basilica to Earth in three books... I hope Crad pulls his socks up, or rather his character's.
