I was grateful for the fine performance. Anna Fields' voice covers such a range as to make the male characters as believable as the female. Her accents were skillful enough and consistent so that I came to know the character speaking without any other identifying cues.
The story, like The Sparrow, was multidimensional. Mary Doria Russell moved freely and seamlessly between an exploration of the science involved in inter-stellar travel, the technology to make that possible, the cultural complexities of alien races, the depth and breadth of our understanding of and relation to God. And she wrote two novels of compelling fiction that explored the central characters in depth. Emilio Sandoz, Sophia Mendez and the alien characters as well feel to me like individuals that I know and care for.
If I could have, yes.
In The Sparrow and Children of God, Mary Doria Russel has made a contribution to the world of literature, not just Sci Fi.
