Victor Tanasa a dat nota:
I was very pleasantly surprised when I saw that Contact tells not only the story of humankind's contact with an alien civilization, but also Sagan's views on science, politics, religion, philosophy, humanity's potential futures, and ultimately the author's message of hope. At times, it was just like reading Cosmos or The Demon-Haunted World. Sagan's love and fascination for science and its intrinsic power is evident in many chapters. All of the above, plus a compelling main character in Ellie Arroway and a very exhilarating final third make for a fine novel. Too bad he only wrote one.
Sagan was Dir. of the Laboratory for Planetary Studies & David Duncan Prof. of Astronomy & Space Sciences at Cornell University.He played a leading role in the Mariner, Viking & Voyage expeditions to the planets & was a recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for literature. He died in 1996.
