    The only member of the original mission to the planet Rakhat to return to Earth, Father Emilio Sandoz has barely begun to recover from his ordeal when the Society of Jesus calls upon him for help in preparing for another mission to Alpha Centauri. Despite his objections and fear, he cannot escape his past or the future.

    Ryan says: "A weaker, but worthwhile sequel"
    "Literary Masterpiece"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Children of God to be better than the print version?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    Which character – as performed by Anna Fields – was your favorite?

    Emilio Sandoz


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I could have, yes.


    Any additional comments?

    In The Sparrow and Children of God, Mary Doria Russel has made a contribution to the world of literature, not just Sci Fi.
