"Books and Coffee it doesn't get any better than this..."

The Sparrow - Mary Doria Russell A very gripping, emotional story of a Jesuit priest who makes first contact on an alien planet lured there by beautiful music over heard by radio transmissions from space. I found the writing to be superb and I totally loved the characters but a few things bothered me first of all the idea of space travel in an asteroid just doesn't seem quite right (It's a rock!) and a couple of times the aliens acted just a little to human such as the "club" scene where they get drunk and arm wrestle that was just silly. The ending was very dramatic and intense and stayed in my mind for a long while after I finished reading it.
