2001: A Space Odyssey shocked, amazed, and delighted millions in the late 1960s. An instant book and movie classic, its fame has grown over the years. Yet along with the almost universal acclaim, a host of questions has grown more insistent through the years, for example: who or what transformed Dave Bowman into the Star-Child? What alien purpose lay behind the monoliths on the Moon and out in space? What could drive HAL to kill the crew? Now all those questions and many more have been answered, in this stunning sequel to the international bestseller. Cosmic in sweep, eloquent in its depiction of Man's place in the Universe, and filled with the romance of space, this novel is a monumental achievement and a must-read for Arthur C. Clarke fans old and new.
"A daring romp through the solar system and a worthy successor to 2001."
Carl Sagan

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyed Honestly I loved all the books in this series. I enjoy the hard science approach to a distant yet not too distant future and the mysteries of intelligent life beyond the Earth

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 2010: Odyssey Two (Space Odyssey #2) by Arthur C. Clarke The early part of 2010: Odyssey Two is less than riveting as Clarke goes into detail about the family life of the book’s protagonist, Heywood Floyd and their pet dolphins. Then there are several lengthy scientific expository passages leading up to the rendezvous with the Discovery which are too dry for my taste. I do like hard SF, the real world science enhances the verisimilitude of the futuristic plot. Unfortunately, long infodumps tend to be very dry read like extracts from a scientific journal article.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good read! 2010 keeps up with the original story and I a prequel to 2 more Odyssey books. The film like most, was not exactly as the book, but kept the main sentiment/gist of the book and Arthur c. Clark said it was good, so if you saw the film first like me, you will enjoy the book and the others in the series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazingly entertaining and suprising A worthy succesor to its parent novel, 2001. This novel has more of a plot to it than the first, so it tends to be more intriguing. Unfortunately, it has less ground breaking content since 2001 has seen it all. But it is still worth reading numerous times, since this book has many suprises and even some plot twists hidden in it.
