Red Sparrow is the debut novel from a CIA retiree with 33 years experience. It has a certain ring of authenticity throughout. Good thing he can write also! A few things that set this book apart from other spy novels (for better or for worse): 1. The main character has a "sixth-sense" that allows her instincts to 'sense' what another personality. “A startling, engrossing, and moral work of fiction.”—The New York Times Book Review “Important novels leave deep cracks in our beliefs, our prejudices, and our blinders. The Sparrow is one of them.”—Entertainment Weekly.

Is the House Sparrow a contemporary canary in the mine? Other topics of broad interest include the reproductive and flock-foraging strategies of sparrows, and sexual selection and the function of the male badge in the species. The book also explores the role of the House Sparrow in disease transmission to humans and their domesticated animals. Tolkien meets AI as Bennett (City of Stairs, , etc.) returns with a busy, action-packed sequel to Foundryside (), neatly blending technology, philosophy, and e is a medieval-ish city-state made up of four “campos,” each controlled by a merchant guild. One lies in ruins, the outer wall now “little more than masonry and rubble about ten feet high.”.

The male House Sparrow is very easy to identify, but females are quite similar to some species of native sparrows. Check a bird book if necessary. Revised May The North American Bluebird Society, Inc. is a non-profit education, conservation, and research organization. I can't recommend The Sparrow highly enough but be warned: if you're the type of science fiction fan who wants action-packed space opera, this isn't the book for you. It's a book about people and ideas, not an action/ adventure story. 53 people found this helpful.
