Today is the start of The Sparrow readalong hosted by Trish from Love, Laughter, and a Touch of Insanity.
I posted about this a few days ago, but here is the synopsis of the book again:
Summary from Goodreads:
In 2019, humanity finally finds proof of extraterrestrial life when a listening post in Puerto Rico picks up exquisite singing from a planet which will come to be known as Rakhat. While United Nations diplomats endlessly debate a possible first contact mission, the Society of Jesus quietly organizes an eight-person scientific expedition of its own. What the Jesuits find is a world so beyond comprehension that it will lead them to question the meaning of being "human." Words like "provocative" and "compelling" will come to mind as you read this shocking novel about first contact with a race that creates music akin to both poetry and prayer.
I admit, I started early, because I couldn't help myself. I'm hooked people. That's all I will say.
