Contact by Carl SagAke a human to meet those that sent the message They are eager to meet us they have been watching and waiting for a long time And now they will judge. I really hate it when I lose reviews Okay take twoI was just reminiscing on my younger self's condemnation or at least his valid annoyances at the plot holes and some of the straight story elements or the fact that I was trying to compare this classic SF work with other classic SF works that I was making my way through at the time and comparing them unfavorably because I wanted a lot of the psychedelic naked singularity stuff and aliens not just a long winded optimistic synthesis of science religion politics and philosophyBut now after having read a lot of so so average SF I can easily bump this one up because it balances everything on a good tightrope including the story elements and the characterizationsAnd I'm gonna face it I'm SERIOUSLY in need of good science and heavy optimism and reconciliations between disparate camps of philosophies Whoa was this novel exactly what the doctor ordered or what I rocked to all the good science I jammed to the intelligent discussions whether they were religious political or even the ethics of science Of course the novel is about aliens and whether or not we're grown up too but that's all part of the big package and what a huge packageSagan is rightly considered a god I'm not alone in thinking he should have been writing tons novels either and not just this single masterworkSo if I ever get the chance to travel back in time and slap around my younger self I'll do it joyfully Sure the novel has a few plot and element faults but overall I'm rather amazed that so much was able to come out of the text As a whole the book itself is a synthesis and not only its messageOh and other than that I've seen the movie like a 10x24 times as if each iteration was a point in pi so it was also fun as hell picking out all the divergences between the book and the movie I was always pretty amazed that not only the spirit was intact but so was most of the piecesSure she wasn't alone on her little trip in the book but both ways were pretty great Want visual Or do you want extrapolation and discussion and theory Pick one Watch or Read Good either way I can enthusiastically recommend this novel to anyone

Review tomorrow 😬Well tomorrow has been and gone a couple of days ago and with family visiting I never had the chance to write my thoughtsI have the DVD of this book and know that I have seen it at least once as my reading of this book was accompanied by visual snippets of Jodie Foster as Dr ArrowayVisual snippets apart this is a wonderful First Contact novel and I have to say it always leaves me positive about the future of the human race It view spoiler may not turn out as positive as it could have done and that is probably the black side of humanity the politics but it still leaves me feeling that just maybe we will not destroy ourselves that we will go on and reach the stars hide spoiler

A smart story crafted by a real space science guru WE CAN'T BE ALONE The universe is a pretty big place If it's just us seems like an awful waste of spaceWhen I read this book back then in 1997 I did it like a couple of months before of being able to watch the film adaptation And I am truly glad that I was able to get the movie in blu ray a few months ago in this year 2014This is truly great novel and it's written by one of the most respected scientist in the field about science of outer space Carl SaganReaders who enjoy techno thrillers in the style of Michael Chrichton I am sure that they will find this book the same as enjoyable Sagan is able to merge all his factual science knowledge with strong theories and very possible science fictionIf you want to read about a first contact with an alien intelligence in a form as real as possible this is your novel THAT MESMERIZING DARK SPACE For small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through loveSagan never compromised his credibility as a real scientist just to sell cheap action in this novel This is a smart tale with many hard science but also it contains great characters with exceptional developingSince after all only science can't tell a story there must be people and people has feelings and you will perceive themHe knows what he is doing and you get a very realistic aproach of how you could expect the human civilization can deal with the impact of knowing that we are not alone in the universe anyIf you are looking for flying saucers blasting lasers and the army fighting bravely against them this is NOT your book I have nothing against that approach don't get me wrong I like that kind of stories too But I think that it's fair to have once in a while a mature angle to craft a story about the first meeting with an alien intelligenceYou have here a very intelligent story with a strong scientific backgroundNevertheless Sagan knows that a novel must entertain and you will be entertained but in a very adult and plausible way
