A truly beautiful story
Reviewed in the United States on March 15, 2015
Jane Holloway, a linguist, agrees to go to a mission into outer space to investigate a seemingly abandoned alien space-craft and possibly make first contact, learn and analyze their language. But she gets much more than she had bargained for.
I loved the story and the slow and intricate character development. And I loved the main characters themselves, their decency and deep ethics,their readiness to risk their lives for their fellow astronauts. I'm satisfied with Jane's decision in the end and with her intention of making the important information known not only the American government or NASA but equally to the nations of the whole world.
The language is beautiful, rich in plastic descriptions, you feel you are there on that alien ship.
I can't wait reading the next Confluence installment.
