The Sparrow, by Mary Doria Russell

I saw this book at Ft Jackson a couple of years ago, and bought something lighter. Yesterday I read all 400 pages in a few hours.

Astronomers at Arecibo pick up alien voices, singing. The Jesuits launch a mission to the plant of origin. The explorers think they've discovered Eden. They are wrong.

Woven into this is the spiritual life of Fr. Emilio Sandoz, whose horrific experiences make him wonder what this God guy, who he though he had a love relationship with, is doing torturing him the way he did.

Short shrift to a fabulous book, but I only have 2 minutes left on the computer.

Yah it is a good book...picked mine up new, because I couldn't find it used. Wound up being signed by the author. :)
