What a book. For someone with a vast intellect as Sagan to be able to write a book that is so approachable by all is a feat unto itself. He writes with a wonder that was visible during the "Cosmos" series he hosted. He shows that you don't need to believe in the supernatural to have a wonder about the universe.

Recommended for any and all readers, no matter the genre preference. ( )

Carl Sagan explores a variety of ideas, encapsulating the big topics of religion and the origin of the universe effortlessly and eloquently. His amiable tone and amazing breadth of written language combine to make an exciting and interesting read. Sagan digresses a lot, but it's worth sticking with to understand the finer points he is making. It may be fiction, but you'll learn a lot from this book. ( )

The plot was okay, I guess, but the character development needed a lot of work. The character of Ellie was completley unidentifiable as human. I think that Carl Sagan designed her with creating a female character in mind, because she seems to be a composite of female stereotypes without substance.

She's a complete cipher, and it completely ruined the book for me. ( )

Enjoyed the book even more than the movie. ( )

Definitely a must-read. It changed my perspective on science and religion. It felt like there are events in life that don't need scientific proof for you to know that they were real. On the other side, skepticism is one of the most valuable tools for those who seek to understand the Universe. "Skepticism is the chastity of the intellect".

How big are we? How important is our role, as humans, in the vast universe? Do you think there are other intelligent species out there, other civilizations, maybe millions of years ahead of us in terms of technology, economics, society, everything? What if one of those advanced civilizations contacted us and offered a present? How would a discovery like that change the life on earth? How would people in power react to protect their seats, to protect their bit of nothing which they rule? Carl Sagan explores these questions and many others in a mesmerizing story that, and this I can assure, will make you look at the stars with brand new and wiser eyes.

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 Alexandra,

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.
