    Paperback ↠ The Sparrow PDF ¼ 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 unive

    Paperback ↠ The Sparrow PDF ¼ sparrow ebok, The Sparrow PDFIf God is anything like a middle class white chick from the suburbs which i admit is a long shot it's what you do about what feel that matters425 This was a beautiful and heart wrenching book The characters were attaching and you can't help but root for them but also cry with them An interesting take on the first contact with alien trope

    Paperback ↠ The Sparrow PDF ¼ sparrow ebok, The Sparrow PDFI've hit page 199 of 'The Sparrow' and the viscosity of the text is increasingBy page 12 I had a lot of hope for this book By page 88 I was really into the book and thinking there was a good chance this was a 4 or 5 star book At this point though I'm not sure I can summon enough conviction up to finish itRussell takes a gamble with her story of telling it from the beginning and end toward the middle and relies extremely heavily on foreshadowing It’s high risk techniue with a big payoff and while it is somewhat effective at first in generating interest in the story after about 130 pages of foreshadowing gloom and horror it gets really tiring It's like taking a

    Paperback ↠ The Sparrow PDF ¼ 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 for thought I admit to lying awake many nights in the past pondering the uestions of the universe but of late I knew the answers would not come so I set aside such contemplation Russell managed to reawaken such reflections I won’

    Paperback ↠ The Sparrow PDF ¼ sparrow ebok, The Sparrow PDFThis is the third SF story I've read where a Jesuit priest goes on an expedition to another planet and suffers a spiritual crisis as a result It's almost becoming a sub genre I don't want to call Emilio a whiner or anything obviously what happens to him is truly horrible But much as I hate to say it his tragedy seemed lightweight compared to the other two and I felt disappointed I was expecting something a little cosmic in scaleOf the three stories the one I found most effective was Arthur C Clarke's classic short The Star They set course for a supernova remnant and find a half melted planet on the outskirts of what used to be its solar system There's a deeply buried time capsule planted by the alien civilization which was destroyed

    Paperback ↠ The Sparrow PDF ¼ 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 I'll have all my main characters

    Paperback ↠ The Sparrow PDF ¼ 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
