From Kirkus Reviews

First of a five-book series from the author of Xenocide, the Alvin Maker tales, etc. Planet Harmony, settled 40 million years ago following the destruction of Earth, is overseen by the Oversoul, an intelligent computer able to communicate telepathically with certain of the inhabitants. Set up to prevent war and ensure the colony's survival, the Oversoul is now breaking down, and for repairs must journey to Earth (where, the Oversoul theorizes, a new civilization surely will have arisen by now). Needing help from Harmony, the Oversoul first contacts young student Nafai of the matriarchal city Basilica, hoping to persuade him and others of his family to secure the Index--an ancient machine that will enable the Oversoul to talk directly with everyone. A major complication is that as the Oversoul decays, the mental blocks it implanted in Harmony's people eons ago to prevent war are also breaking down; and soon the women of Basilica find themselves trapped in a power struggle between two hostile male armies. Where Card focuses on children--as he often does here--he writes fluently and persuasively. Elsewhere, his adult characters and motivations are much less appealing. Neither is the ancient- computer backdrop, with its far-fetched Earth connection, particularly convincing. All in all, an uneven and irritatingly inconclusive starter. -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Memory of Earth-- A masterpiece 3. Juli 2000
The Memeory of Earth, by Orson Scott Card, is a brilliant and intense piece of literature. With a plethora of brilliant ideas and imagry that's so exciting to read, you'll want to purchase the entire series at once. Card's character descrpition and character interaction gets the reader so envolved that one could feel, taste, smell and hear every fine detail, just as the characters do. Let yourself fall into Card's imagination and read The Memory of Earth for an exciting ride into a sureal story that only Card could tell.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Remarkable Beginning 10. Juni 2000
The Memory of Earth is a remarkable beginning for a series. Usually, you can like a novel if it succeeds at one thing; this novel succeeds on a number of levels, any one of which would make a complete novel. It acts as the introduction to a whole new series. I should warn others who want to read all five books that this is the strongest of the five. I became disappointed by the third in the series as it seemed to move away from the setup in Memory of Earth. That doesn't change the fact that Memory is remarkable. I notice some readers feel it is too slow. I enjoyed the slow careful development of a huge, interrelated cast of characters who are remarkably vivid. You come to feel you know these people and like or dislike them as if they were real. Most remarkable is the creation of a society, the City of Basilica. It's a Byzantine world and it's a matriarchy. It's very unusual to have a matriarchy portrayed in a way that seems real, that is, it's simply part of the background of the politics of the city. As if this weren't enough, there's a remarkable spiritual dimension. Card is one of the very few authors willing to give his characters and his society a spiritual life. The relationship of man to the Oversoul becomes at times a clear metaphor for man and God, especially when one man receives a visionary dream that sends him on a pilgrimage into the desert. It's a long book but worth the journey.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fascinating read; intriguing concepts 25. August 1996
Von Ein Kunde
A fascinating book that sometimes takes the point of view of "God." On a world 40-million years older than a humanless earth, a culture has developed free of large-scale weaponry and destruction. Guided carefully by a super-powerful human-made computer called the "Oversoul" by the human inhabitants, the inhabitants are made ignorant of complex technologies that may lead to the ultimate destruction of their race as it had once very-nearly happened on earth 40-million years ago. But now the computer begins to find its memory running out, its systems failing, and its control of the humans disappearing. A young boy named Nafai and his physically-disabled brother Issib begin to realize what the Oversoul actually is, and begin discovering what is happening and race to solve it. However, they are obstructed from a solution by greedy-minded people and highly-religious people who consider the Oversoul a god -- not a limited, man-made computer.

Although not much on action, this book will have you fascinated to the end. If you're a Card-lover (which I doubt much aren't), then this is a must-read

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Oversoul Is Pleased 26. Juni 2000
Von J. Wehner
This book is so good. I thought it would be like any other science fiction book, but it wasn't. I can't wait to read all of the others. Definetly worth buying. A science fiction story about the possible future of earth.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Fascinating Adaptation 10. Mai 2000
I've been a Card fan since reading Ender's Game (reading it to pieces, eventually) and he continues to be one of my favorite authors, only getting better as he comes out with new works. The rumor is bandied about all over these reviews that the book is based on the Book of Mormon. Yes, it's true. Card himself has confirmed this (he is a member of the Mormon Church, as am I) and anyone who has read them both will find it obvious. Nafai, for example, is Nephi in the Book of Mormon. Card's Mormon legacy can also be seen in his Alvin Maker series, an allegory of the life of Joseph Smith, the founder of the LDS Church, and he has woven elements of Mormon theology into many of his other works, especially the later books in the Ender series. Of course, these books are well worth the read whether you care about the religious element or not.

Von Ein Kunde
After reading the Enders series, I was prepared for a novel with a tight story line, a philosophical perspective and characters that have such a definitive moral and intellectual position that a consistant fair conflict was fesible. Instead, I was bombarded with a barage of misleading evidence and a plot development that had the makings of a high schooler. The characters power struggles usually ended up with either a fist-fight, or an unended conflict that resulted no where. These characters learned nothing from their mistakes, and continued to perform as a 5 year old when scolded. It seemed that Card wants to carry these small conflicts into each novel to bring familiarity, but all it brings is a sense of immaturity from even the God-like being. All in all, this book is hardly worth the $5.95.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not his best 4. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
i just recently found out that this book is a paraphrase of the book of mormon and it finally made sense to me. Orson Scott Card is far and away my favorite writer and i've read all of his books - even Saints. However, i could never understand how he could manage to write such a boring book, now that i know it's based on the book of mormon it makes a lot more sense. Not to put Card down, this is his only series (i think) where the books get better towards the end of the series, usually things get worse as the characters grow up, but here they only get more interesting, probably as he gets farther from mormonism. i'd recommend the whole series, but i don't feel that this book is worth reading on its own.

aber das liegt daran, dass Card gleich zu Beginn über ein Dutzend Personen einführt. Deswegen braucht der Band mehr als die Hälfte der Seiten, um an Fahrt... Lesen Sie weiter...

5.0 von 5 Sternen The main character seems more real to me than even Ender.
I loved this book. Perhaps it is because I read the whole series and think the main character, Nephai, is THE most memorable character I've ever read about. Lesen Sie weiter...
