The future is here...in an adventure of cosmic dimension. In December, 1999, a multinational team journeys out to the stars, to the most awesome encounter in human history. Who - or what - is out there? In Cosmos, Carl Sagan explained the universe. In Contact, he predicts its future - and our own.

"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)
a Tech Exec who loves the stories about what could be and what should have been. Mixed with histories told from an outside perspective.
A modern 'classic'. It is a really good piece of prose that I think was better in its movie form. The book it fine for about 3/4's of the plot then the last 1/4...I am glad did not make it in the film.
If you are looking for endless religion vs science debates and protracted descriptions of obscure foreign holidays, this is the book for you. Boring, boring, boring!!!
The whole story, did not even finish it, (first for audible that I did not finish) It was so anti-God, that it seemed to be the main point of the audio. Made me sad, because the movie was awesome.
The continuous negativity about God. Not that I cared one way or the other what the author believes but this crossed the line because it was so continuous, not so much about life elsewhere.
