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

I remember watching 2001: A space Odyssey about seven years back and almost losing my mind during the overlong Stargate sequence and what followed after that acid trip.

The tal starts in a time before the dawn of human kind, when benevolent and rather mindless man-apes were dying one after another due to overlong drought and natural predators.

The only problem was that the once benevolent man-apes passed these newly found qualities like innovation, imagination and unfortunately, violence to future generations that followed them.That 's a discussio for another time.

I could n't help but notice a scene where one of the characters lands an instumentless probe on an asteroid, and Ta-da, we have done better with Rosetta probe! *You go, Rosetta* Without question, the best part about the nove was HAL 9000 ( view spoiler) [ and the horrors.

After seven ears, I was just moments away from finally understanding the end of 2001 A space Odyssey. *I understand ... ...

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 descriptio 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 novel 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 ook 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 storie they wanted to tell and Clarke ’ s answers are not necessarily the correct one!

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

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

gave it

larke masterfully depicted the vast grandeur of space, in part by subtly yet persistently underscoring how very small and alone David was, and he did so in such a way that I ended up feeling something I ’ ve not experienced in quite some time: pure childlike wonder at the unfathomable, incomprehensible beauty and magnitude of our universe.

Some of you may already be skeptical, and hearing about “ the endless expanses of the human heart ” really can ’ t be helping matters.

And, granted, the ook did end things with a freakin ’ ( view spoiler) [

Dave Bowman: What are you talking about, HAL?

Dave Bowman: I do n't know what you 're talking about, HAL.
