I have to admit I found my re-read of The Jesus Incident just recently very difficult to complete. The book simply isn't interesting and the story doesn't move. D:V is so much of a better read. But to be fair I feel like it may be a result of the collaboration. I don't know how Herbert and Ransom assigned tasks, but the prose doesn't resemble Frank's other writing so I wonder whether it was written by committee.
Speaking of which, I was thinking of reading the rest of the Ender series, having only read the first one so far (and not liking it that much). I guess you don't think it's worth reading?
