Somehow this quiet story remains a personal favourite, after many re-reads years apart.

Sure, it's got that 50's feel with everybody smoking and cocktail hour before dinner, but despite that the characters are real and likeable, and the basic premise and it's conclusion stands. Any communication with aliens past or present requires a starting point, and there's only one thing we all really share.

Read this one - freely available these days from gutenburg if you like.
