I was hoping to enjoy a different Card series besides the Ender and Bean sagas, but Homecoming won't be it.

I like the central idea of the Oversoul, but I never cared for any of the incredibly flat characters enough to want to see what happens next. The 300 page book took me 2 weeks to finish with the last 100 pages being read in an hour once the plot started moving past pubescent anger. The decent resolution bumps up the review one star.

Looking at reviews for the next few books, it sounds like "The Memory of Earth" is an adaptation of "The Book of Mormon". I didn't know that at the time of my reading, and that doesn't change the fact that the book was flat and boring. I'll skip the rest of the series.
