Finished The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell. The first 85% I loved the book so much, probably more than any other book in years. The last 15% were very, very rough even knowing it will turn extremely sad and devastating in the end (it pretty much states that in the beginning of the book). I still love the book but it really was an emotional rollercoaster ride - or more like emotional barrel ride down the Niagara falls. I will probably revisit this book after few years but now need to something lighter.
There is an episode of “The Incomparable” podcast just about this book that goes through it in details: The Incomparable | Just Add Jesuits! (Episode 316)
