NoTo make a long story short this is probably an excellent book but I failed to make contact to connect to the characters Feeling sorry about that I decided to read Sagan’s nonfiction instead to give him another chanceThe problem I had with the novel was similar to my experience with 2001 A Space Odyssey but on a bigger scale I have no doubt that Sagan’s visions and ideas on extraterrestria

Summary Contact AUTHOR Carl Sagan Contact AUTHOR Carl Sagan Read & Download ´ 9 Ake a human to meet those that sent the message They are eager to meet us they have been watching and waiting for a long time And now they will judge. Sagan was a lucid and impassioned defender of rationality and clear thought Unfortunately his foray into fiction did little to increase the understanding of his philosophies and much to muddy the waters of once clear thought Inspired by Asimov and Heinlein he decided that fiction was as good a place as any to explore his ideas on science belief and wonderWhile we expect long in depth explanations from non fiction fiction readers want than just a lecture from the author They expect that the characterization plot and themes will build the author s case for them and in a way that will engage the reader without getting bogged down in rhetoricSagan s characterization and plotting are unrefined and he builds no suspense His characters often fall into cliche mere mouthpieces for Sagan to explore this or that view While Heinlein and Card are known and sometimes reviled for lecturing the reader they still returned to the story at hand and Heinlein at least made sure his asides were directed to his textThe complex the idea the difficult it is to show through character interaction and symbolism Anyone familiar with Sagan s non fiction work will immediately recognize the same arguments in Contact Without this foreknowledge the ideas become lost and muddledMany religious readers come away from this book with the sense that Sagan is condoning faith Sagan struggled in Contact with the themes of wonderment and the unknown They became so intermingled and vague that they do seem to suggest spirituality In non fiction Sagan differentiated the minute points that separate his brand of rationality from religious faith but floundered when he found himself in unfamiliar watersWhen presenting an explanation for an idea he can warn against pitfalls and refine specific points Contrarily presenting such ideas through a story reuires that the symbolism of the story be extremely precise The examples in the text must elegantly illustrate the point without leaving leeway for alternative interpretations This is one of the hardest tasks any writer can set himself and Sagan s inexperience with fictional construction showed through hereSagan hoped to widen his audience to increase discussion and the understanding of his philosophy He wanted to ensnare the non scientific reader by couching scientific ideas in an entertaining story but in his inexperience he chose ideas much grander than his story could supportThis book is much accessible than most of Sagan simply because it is genre fiction It is then doubly unfortunate that most readers will know Sagan primarily from this work since it fails to communicate his ideas to new readers This book is likely to cause confusion and misunderstanding than to impart knowledgeThe vagueness of the book leaves it so open for interpretation that both the rational and irrational can grasp onto it to support their own ideas Sagan should have looked at the conflicts caused by similarly confusing symbolic books like the bible and stuck with the clear and concise writing that so often served him well

I was uite shocked when I saw the movie version and discovered that they had twisted the message 180 degrees In the book the heroine meets the aliens and is told that they have indisputable proof that the Universe was created by a Higher Power When she returns to Earth she has no immediate way to support her story but she has been given enough of a clue that she knows how to find objective evidence which she duly does She also makes another surprising discoveryIn the movie she comes back and can t justify her story in any way period So she is forced to tell people that they need Faith This is the opposite of what Sagan was saying For people who haven t seen the famous xkcd cartoon I hadn t until this morningI had not come across his letter until I saw it just now but apparently Sagan told Warner Brothers straight out that he was unhappy with what they d done to the movie Ellie disgracefully waffles in the face of lightweight theological objections to rationalism
