    I am so glad I only waited a month between reading parts one and two of this book It really is just one book split into two parts and I could not leave Emilio for too long suffering the way he was at the end of part one.Emilio Sandoz is one of those book characters who jumps off the page and out of the book Whenever h

    The sequel to The Sparrow Once again, the author does a tremendous job in both introducing new social, political, and cultural concepts on almost every page for both the human and alien species she writes about, which makes the story very compelling for the reader As the story progresses the author creates a nearly intractable prob

    It s been a few days since I finished reading this book, which is unusual for me since normally I like to write my reviews immediately upon finishing I needed a few days for this one Partly because I ve been terribly busy with life and work, but also because I almost didn t care enough to write a review That soundsharsh than I mean it to, but remember I also didn t care too much
