From Booklist

The third book of Card's Homecoming Saga takes the prophet Nafai and his oddly assorted band of pilgrims across the deserts of Harmony as they flee from ruined Basilica and its conquerors. Fumbling their way toward workable social arrangements for their new existence as they go, they are guided by the Oversoul and its vision of the need to return to Earth. There seems to be a bit of fumbling, or at any rate a good deal of talk, in Card's handling of this philosophical journey, but in its final stages, the book rises to great power as the little band of prophets approaches its goal. Even as good a writer as Card--one of the genuinely towering talents working in science fiction today--is not immune to middle-book-slump syndrome, but overall, this volume carries forward a superior story. Roland Green

From Kirkus Reviews

Third in Card's sf series (The Call of Earth, 1992, etc.) set on planet Harmony, whose ruling computer, the Oversoul, is breaking down after 40 million years of service. The Oversoul has been breeding humans capable of direct communication; now, prompted by another computer on distant Earth, the Oversoul has gathered the extended family of Nafai to a place in the desert where six starships are preserved. Having been chosen by the Oversoul as navigator, and invested with great powers, Nafai must assemble a working spaceship from the partially operative hulks, while dealing with the threat posed by his murderous, unbelieving elder brother Elemak. The Homecoming Saga is a well-turned series, with intriguing ideas, well-developed characters and setting, and a plot huge enough to satisfy the most extravagant tastes; this episode comes with a most useful and welcome recapping prologue, although newcomers will wish to start with volume one. -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP.

How far does the rabbit hole go? In the book, The Ships of Earth the rabbit hole went deep enough that you don't reach the bottom at the end of the book. Whether the character is the main one or simply a mechanical they all get explained and you understand exactly what they think as they travel through the desert in search of something the don't yet know. In this book the main character is Nafia a boy who is chosen by a "god" who is just a machine set up by their ancestors too keep the humans of a world call "Harmony" under control. This boys ambitions to make a difference in the world a clear and shinning with the authors clarity. This book creates a sort of bond between you that really "puts" you into all the characters shoes. The book shows you the feelings of a crippled boy who finally finds and a wife (which he thought could never be done is his case) like you'd see a sun rise of a clear summer day.It holds the truth in front of your face and lets you watch as almost all the characters desperately try find out. This book elaborates on problem after problem trying to build up momentum for the main confrontation and falls short a centimeter of the finish line, then forcing you to read the next book to find the answer and by then a new problem has built up that draws you in. There is only one quality that this book lacks and that is a good title. To conclude a book that lets you sit back and watch with a ominous point of view at the situation that is happening. Furthermore, you should read a delightful and exciting book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Deeper characters & fascinating relationships 27. Juni 2000
Von Ein Kunde
I'm not quite done with it yet, but love it! Card continues the intriguing story of the 1st 2 books in the series, but adds new elements that challenge you to consider new ideas and entertain you in new ways.
I've especially enjoyed the rotating Point of View - it seems hard for authors to pull this off even with 2 or 3 different narrators, but Card is successful using many without confusing the reader as to who the Main Characters are. It's incredibly interesting to see how people view each other and themselves; how often they're wrong!; and how the relationships develop.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Best and Worst of the Series 10. Juni 2000
The Ships of Earth is third in the Homecoming Series. I found the first in the series a brilliant book, the second was imaginative and interesting and this one alternates between brilliant and appalling. It's brilliant as it shows the struggles of 16 members of two families (really one) who have fled the decadent, fascinating city of Basilica to survive and flourish in the desert. They are guided by a vision from the Oversoul, the computer, that they are to find the lost ships of earth, repair them and return to earth in them. It's a breathtakingly vast concept. This could have, should have been a classic. Instead, there is much that is appalling about the book. There is an almost unbelievably ugly self-righteousness that creeps in (actually it leaps in), an attitude of "I'm right. You're wrong. Do as I say or I'll kill you." The threats of murder loom over the book and are never dealt with. Basically, Card divides his 16 people into two groups, one good and one evil. The good people keep the book interesting as they grow in depth and character, as people who don't think they have anything in common become friends and/or fall in love. However, the bad people become awful, in a very boring, repetitious way. There is hatred based on jealousy between brothers -- hatred that leads to murderous plots. There is hatred based on jealousy between two sisters. There a sameness to this hatred that gets very tiresome as it doesn't go anywhere. Worst of all (and a major cause of the hatred) is the selfrighteousness of the leader. He's the distant father-figure, fascinating in the first two books as he becomes a prophet leading his family on his mission to return to earth, appalling here as he literally forces his family to follow him with threats of death.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Ships : Prepare You For An Awesome Conclusion 5. Juli 2000
After reading the first two novels, you can't help but wonder what happens to our friends on Harmony and thier guide, the Oversoul. The characters stay true to thier form from the first two novels, but as they learn and grow your compelled to read on. Not Card's greatest, but beautiful enough to prepare, and set you up for an amazing conclusion.

If you're wondering, I loved the second; I also liked the first one. I love the character, Nephai, and his wife, Luet. If you're into complex characters and can really get involved with them, AND you read the first two books, SHIPS is as good as they get.

Although it might not work as well as a stand-alone novel, this book continues the saga of the Wetchik clan as they follow the Oversoul through the desert to the place where humans first set foot on Harmony 40 million years perviously. The series is quite strong and I enjoyed this book much more because I was already familiar with the characters from the previous two. Card's writing focuses on character more than on the pure science-fiction of his tales and it makes them quite readable. All in all another well-crafted release from one of my favorite authors
