Cosmos was better,
This review is from: Contact (Paperback)
I'm a huge fan of Carl Sagan, but found this particular foray into fiction the only book of his to be well, a bit boring.
Don't get me wrong, it was really good in places, but for a story it was a little over-technical (ironic from a writer who usually managed to make the most complex and technical things very easy to understand and poetic)
I saw the novel through to the end out of respect to the author (who from his other work I consider one of the greatest thinkers of our time), but have to say, read all of his other books first ('Cosmos' is the best intro to Sagan world in fact) as only a fan will have the loyalty to enjoy this one fully
