They really facilitate visualization of these planets.What I particularly love about Clarke ’ s writing now that I did not appreciate in my foolish teens is the wonderful minutiae of his escriptions of various aspects of the space faring life.

2001: A Space Odyssey gets off to a rollicking start during 3 million years B.C. The nex five chapters basically tells the stories of how ape-men were “ uplifted ” ( to use David Brin ’ s term) by dogooding aliens from silly primates to sentient “ people ”.

This main section of the essa is entirely set in space so we don ’ t know if Clarke would have predicted iPads and Tumblr. ( Monolith on the moon) The middle section of the book where astronaut David Bowman is battling crazed and homicidal AI HAL 9000 ( of “ Daisy Daisy ” fame) is my avorite.

If you are puzzled by the Kubrick movie this book may help to clarify almost everything for you, except that according to Clarke Kubrick and himself had different idea of the tory they wanted to tell and Clarke ’ s nswers are not necessarily the correct one!

If you like the film adaption of 2001: A Space Odyssey but have not read this nove you should.

I read 2001: A Space Odyssey when I was a schoolteache and knew it was a very influential work of fiction because of the ilm and all the attention it had received.

Unfortunately, Kubrick stripped away the mysticism and theory and left us what is, in omparison to the ook, only a glimmer at something bigger.Kubrick touched the monolith, but Clarke went inside.
