In December, 1999, a multinational team journeys out to the stars, to the most awesome encounter in human history. Who -- or what -- is out there? In "Cosmos," Carl Sagan explained the universe. In "Contact," he predicts its future -- and our own.

Really excellent look at communication with extraterrestrial life. Sagan has a bit too much of his own theology (all right, we get it, Christianity is illogical), but it doesn't detract too much from the story. Really my only criticism. ( )

An excellent book by Carl Sagan. A team of scientists are listening for life on other planets. Ellie is devoted to pure science and receives what seems to be a signal from a far off planet, Vega. The message is confirmed and the government, religious zealots and every fanatic in between wants to be heard. The message contains much more than origionally thought and a huge cover up by congress ensues. A great read by an amazing man. ( )

I'm giving this one, in all honesty, something like a 3.7. It's well enough written it shouldn't be a three and yet not compelling enough to deserve a four. And yet I truly enjoyed it. It's been a long time since I spent so much time reading a hard core Sci-Fi novel, and Stephanie and I read them by parts one a week.

I love getting to delve back into Sagan's mind. I've read his texts, but never his non-fiction, and there's a lovely thrill to reading about scientific details you know are completely true based on the background of the author.

Definitely not time wasted. ( )

Highly enjoyable book, which was obviously written with the intention of bringing astro physics into the popular realm. It for sure achieved this. The main character was a bit bland, but great story, and reading about some in depth science jargon without feeling overwhelmed was great. Touching at points. ( )

It's bug-eyed monster time again. This time the alien devils are discovered not by Captain Rick Thrust of the US Starship Trousersnake but by mega-boring scientists and lots of hard-work.

For small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through love.
The universe is a pretty big place. If it's just us, seems like an awful waste of space.
You're an interesting species. An interesting mix. You're capable of such beautiful dreams, and such horrible nightmares. You feel so lost, so cut off, so alone, only you're not. See, in all our searching, the only thing we've found that makes the emptiness bearable, is each other.
She had studied the universe all her life, but had overlooked its clearest message: For small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through love.
Your religion assumes that people are children and need a boogeyman so they'll behave. You want people to believe in God so they'll obey the law. That's the only means that occurs to you: a strict secular police force, and the threat of punishment by an all-seeing God for whatever the police overlook. You sell human beings short.
