The Memory of Earth by Orson Scott Card

The Memory of Earth by Orson Scott Card -- 332 pages

The Master Commuter, The Oversoul, has always kept Harmony from vast destruction and war, as it was programmed to do millions of years ago. But The Oversoul is breaking down, losing memory, and losing power. On the planet Harmony, men are starting to think again about power, wealth, and conquest.

The Oversoul must seek help from the people who can still receive visions and signals. One of those people are Nafai's father, and perhaps Nafai himself.

I found this book interesting and intriguing. In the city of Basilica women are the rulers, and men cannot own property inside the city. Some people said that they knew exactly what was going to happen, but I must not be that smart, because I was intrigued and pleasantly surprised at the turns in the plot.

The Memory of Earth is the first book in the Homecoming series. I listened to the audiobook on Overdrive.
