The Sparrow - Mary Doria Russell

Picked by: Steph

Phyllis: The Jesuits continue their missionary experience but it is now to planets. They become stranded on the island. A crew sent to find them think one Jesuit is a traitor. Easy to read but it drove me nuts that he did not tell them sooner what had happened to him-but, you don't want the ending in the middle! I kept wanting to turn to the end to find out what happened.
General Read: 4 | For Discussion: 4

Steph: I'm glad we picked this as our first read. Excellently written with the right amount of suspense and science fiction. Russell does an excellent job of storytelling.
General Read: 5 | For Discussion: 5
