“Contact” was the first work by Carl Sagan that I read. I remember first reading about it on a messageboard discussing faith and arts, and thinking, hmm, that sounds interesting. The novel follows Ellie Arroway, a scientist involved in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI), from her childhood, where she shares a close relationship with her father before his sudden death, to her struggles to be accepted as a scholar and scientist in a male-dominated field. The bulk of the novel surrounds a message being transmitted to the earth from a planet called Vega, which is heavily encrypted and turns out to contain instructions for building a machine whose purpose is not known. Ellie, as the first one to discover this message, becomes one of the leading experts and consultants for this project.

The writing is heavily weighted with scientific explanations and descriptions, which can be daunting for those without a science background. Still, chapters such as the debate between Ellie and two religious leaders are packed with theological, philosophical, and scientific nuggets of thought. It is a hefty novel, and readers may get bogged down in some sections, but it is a rewarding chronicle of one woman’s journey through science and belief. ( )

I felt that every phrase of this book carried a special meaning to me. I'll sure be rereading it many times. ( )

It hasn't dated at all despite being written before the collapse of the USSR. Unsurprisingly has a bit of a didactic tone but beyond that it's a superb idea with an execution to match. In all this the characters aren't relegated to just moving the plot forward as many such sci-fi stories tend to do but are well developed and central. ( )

I was surprised to actually enjoy this book. This is a book by the scientist/TV star Carl Sagan. He wrote this for TV and it was published in 1985. A book that addressed many issues still present; the struggle of science, politics, religion and equity. The book addresses issues between religion and science s well as other items of globalism. The whole experience of traveling via machine through various passages, talking with someone she had loved in life and then not being able to prove any of it when she returns all parallels a religious experience of wonder. The book reveals a scientist (Sagan) to not be as hard cored atheist as his reputation affirmed. As a novel, it may have been a bit dry, lacking somewhat in the amount of anxiety, fear and tension that would have resulted from a message from space. With that said, I now think about The Three-Body Problem which also is about receiving a message from space. ( )

I'm not usually a fan of hard sci-fi, but I really enjoyed this. To be fair, a lot of this book is more about religion than science, but I LOVED the debate and thought the plot was a great idea. Sagan did a great job of not crucifying people of faith (see what I did there :) ) and in the end I felt that he was probably agnostic (I had always assumed he was an atheist). The only thing that seemed to be missing was tension. There was some, but overall, it was pretty "even-keeled" throughout. ( )

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,
who comes of age
with the Millennium.
May we leave your generation a world
better than the one we were given.

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.
