    Paperback↠ The Sparrow Kindle ç sparrow ebok, The Sparrow PDFI had picked this up years ago due to all the terrific reviews but when I started it since it involves priests and such I thought it was going to be a Christian book So I'm really glad that a group decided to read this because it is NOT a yah yah Christian book at all I would instead call it a spiritual book in that the journey involves time old uestions of faith of God of religion of humanity And altho most of the main characters are indeed Jesuits and so many uestions and approaches do involve Catholicism they were universal And very very beautiful After I was done I read that the author had left the Catholic church at age 15 and after 20 years of aetheism found herself re examining uestions of values ethics morality and religion upon the birth of her child She found her drawn to Judaism and convertedAnd that makes

    Paperback↠ The Sparrow Kindle ç sparrow ebok, The Sparrow PDFI had wanted to read The Sparrow since its release back in 19961997 I had seen a review of it and loved the basic idea of future Jesuits being the first “missionaries” to make contact with the first sentient alien species discovered But I lost that review and was never able to figure out the name of the book or the author I tried to discover it everywhere I went and all those I asked were oblivious I really thought I would have no trouble tracking it down but I couldn’t so afte

    Paperback↠ The Sparrow Kindle ç sparrow ebok, The Sparrow PDFThe Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell was Russell’s first novel and was published in 1996 Winning many accolades and several awards including the Arthur C Clarke Award it describes a first contact between humans and an alien race A group led by Jesuit priests travels to a planet near Alpha Centauri after alien singing is picked up from interspace radio signals This is a beautifully written novel with brilliant characterization really the greatest strength of the novel that is poignant in its narrative and painfully brutal in its inevitable path towards a tragedy that is interwoven throughout the bittersweet story Told by alternating timeline perspectives the reader learns of the action by the protagonist’s bitter memories of the doomed trip and from present tense action of the trip itself These scenes are painfully alive for the reader who has a theatrical ironic view of what must ultimately come The look back sections are also difficult to read as the priest s

    Paperback↠ The Sparrow Kindle ç sparrow ebok, The Sparrow PDF What is a life worth living and what is a life wasted and why What is worth dying for what is worth living for and why What shall I teach my child to value and what shall I urge that child to avoid and why What am I owed by others and what do I owe others and why Each human culture provides a different set of answers to those uestions but deity is nearly always embedded in the Why The above uote is from Mary Doria Russell in her Afterword of this brilliant novel I think they sum up perfectly the very same uestions that I found myself grappling with while reading this Russell certainly won’t give you any answers to these uestions but she will give you plenty of intellectual food f

    Paperback↠ The Sparrow Kindle ç sparrow ebok, The Sparrow PDFSadly goodreads has yet to allow a kill it with fire rating so I'll have to content myself with a one star review and a nice cup of tea to uell the overpowering nausea Not due to the shocking ending which I would have welcomed somewhere around page two Not due to the incompetent sci and incredibly half assed fi Due to the revolting self congratulatory aren't we so clever and cute wink to the audience characters But perhaps this was intentional Perhaps Ms Russell intended her audience to greet the tragic death scenes with laughter loud cheers and grateful relief that these idiots will FINALLY shut up No There's still than 100 pages left God damn itI can only imagine Ms Russell's thought process went a little something like thisNow I want to set this book in the future but I don't actually want to go to the effort of developing a rich textured and believable future society I know

    Paperback↠ The Sparrow Kindle ç sparrow ebok, The Sparrow PDFIf called upon to imagine a scenario in which the faith of the devoutly religious is put most severely to the test I would probably think of the Jews in the Nazi death camps What they experienced and witnessed is almost like science fiction in the unimaginable scope of its horror Mary Doria Russell chooses the genre of science fiction to dramatize one human being's dark night of the soul and it's certainly the most imaginative account of a spiritual crisis I've ever read The Sparrow is about a Jesuit mission to the planet Rakhat We learn early on that only one member of the crew survives and returns to Earth This is Emilio who is mutilated and traumatised The narrative alternates between the voyage and life on Rakhat and the Vatican interrogation of the surviving crew member A lot of the success of this novel is due to the ingenious structure which cleverly builds tension and the big vivid and vibrant characters I especially warmed to
