  • 'One of those rare books that takes you to its heart and refuses to let go'

    Lorenzo Carcaterra, author of Sleepers
  • 'Compulsive reading and may be the year's best science fiction novel'

    John Clute, Mail on Sunday
  • 'Brilliant first novel about the discovery of extraterrestrial life...Shades of Wells, Ursula Le Guin and Arthur C. Clarke, with just a dash of Edgar Rice Burroughs - and yet strikingly original'

    Kirkus Reviews
  • 'One of the years's most powerful and disturbing books'

    The Times
  • 'A parable about human life on Earth, with all its imperfections, failings, doubts, wisdom and erudition...The Sparrow is a startling, engrossing and moral work of fiction'

    Colleen McCullough
