The Sparrow – Mary Doria Russell

Review From User :

I loved this book, although it's not the easiest to read. The story is one of the most interesting "first contact" stories I've ever read.

Category: Sci-Fi

The Sparrow is a novel about a remarkable man, a living saint, a life-long celibate and Jesuit priest, who undergoes an experience so harrowing and profound that it makes him question the existence of God. This experience – the first contact between human beings and intelligent extraterrestrial life – begins with a small mistake and ends in a horrible catastrophe.

Combining elements of science fiction and spiritual philosophy, this novel is a tale of the devastating consequences of a scientific mission to make contact with an extraterrestrial culture.
