Arthur C. Clark, creator of one of the world's best-loved science fiction tales, revisits the most famous future ever imagined in this NEW YORK TIMES bestseller, as two expeditions into space become inextricably tangled. Heywood Floyd, survivor of two previous encounters with the mysterious monloiths, must again confront Dave Bowman, HAL, and an alien race that has decided that Mankind is to play a part in the evolution of the galaxy whether it wishes to or not.
Arthur C. Clarke has long been considered the greatest science fiction writer of all time and was an international treasure in many other ways, including the fact that an article by him in 1945 led to the invention of satellite technology.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still Enjoying this series I know a lot of people say they like the series less and less as they went along. This, however, was not the case for me. I love Clark's style. It is so hard to find a really amazing hard sci-fi writer like Clark was during his time. For me, this was a great continuation to the 2001 universe saga, as I found that I will still very interested to see how things developed in that "world"

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 2061: Odyssey Three (Space Odyssey #3) by Arthur C. Clarke As a sequel to 2010: Odyssey Two, I liked the progress of the storyline. Although the monolith is not shown to be involved much in this part of the series, all else was nice, including the space hijacking part. Also, I liked that technology has not been largely focussed upon as could have been in 2061, because that is nearly irrelevant to the main storyline. Of course however, the necessary technology has not been ignored.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 2061 This is the third book in the Odyssey series, and the weakest. The only connection to the other two is the forbidden moon/planet Europa in orbit around Lucifer (post Jupiter) and Heywood Floyd. After reading the first two books I had high expectations for the next, and with a cover like that how could you not? When you read the incredible vision in the first two, you quickly become disapointed by the third. It is a story about the exploration of the forbidden planet, and has a single chapter at the end concerning Bowman/HAL, Monoliths, and creators of the Monoliths. This book might have been good on its own, but putting the Odyssey suffix on the title damned it.
