Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Contact deals with issues…worth pondering.The range and depth of ideas is quite uncommon.”  New York Times Book Review
“Like a good mystery, Contact keeps us curious to the end…ingenious and satisfying.”        Newsweek
“Sagan meditates on science, religion, and government—the elements that define society—and looks to their impact on and role in the future. His ability to pack an exciting read with such rich content is an unusual talent that makes Contact a modern sci-fi classic.”  Amazon.com, editorial review
“Who could be better qualified than the author of the highly successful Cosmos to turn the possibility of extraterrestrial intelligence, and humankind's first contact with it, into imaginative reality…His informed and dramatically enacted speculations into the mysteries of the universe, taken to the point where science and religion touch, make his story an exciting intellectual adventure and science fiction of a high order.”  Publishers Weekly
