Quotes & Awards

  • 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.”       


  • “Sagan meditates on science, religion, and government—the elements that define society—and looks to their impact on and role in the future. His ability to pack an exciting read with such rich content is an unusual talent that makes Contact a modern sci-fi classic.” 

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “Who could be better qualified than the author of the highly successful Cosmos to turn the possibility of extraterrestrial intelligence, and humankind's first contact with it, into imaginative reality…His informed and dramatically enacted speculations into the mysteries of the universe, taken to the point where science and religion touch, make his story an exciting intellectual adventure and science fiction of a high order.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • Winner of the Locus Award
  • A New York Times Bestseller

    " Wouldn't it be such a waste of space if we were all alone? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Sasha | 2/1/2014

    " Carl Sagan is my hero. In this book, his imagining of our modern-day (well, 1985's) reaction to a message from space manages to be both realistic and a little romantic. He raises questions about the existence of a god (a recurring theme in his work) and how the competing worlds of science and religion deal with the implications of contact from the cosmos. As always, Sagan's work is very thought-provoking, and this novel is no exception. "
