Call of Earth: Homecoming II

Call of Earth The Call of Earth is a "middle book" in Card's Homecoming saga. While the story does somewhat stand alone, a lot of it only makes sense after having read the first book. This book is primarily set in the city where the "heros" go to find their wives. The city is historically ruled and controlled by women - thus women are even more likely to be treated as sex objects by the men.

The pace of the book is very slow, though it does seem to get better as it goes along. It does have a Shakespearian ending with everybody getting married (and then an epilogue where the destruction of the city is mentioned.)
