A lot of it is spot-on, though, like Heywood Floyd 's tablet by another name.The first two threads do a great job of setting up the second.

By the time Bowman 's thread got going, the novel was very toug to put down.Unlike a lot of sf classics, I enjoyed both the storie AND the oncepts.

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 opic 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 ook 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 ... ...

( hide spoiler) ] evertheless, 2001: A Space Odyssey is classic science fiction at its best.

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

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.

If you 're into stuff like this, you can read the full review.Open the Pod Bay Doors, HAL: “ 2001: A Space Odyssey ” by Arthur C.

Clarke " Open the pod bay doors, HAL " In the ovie “ 2001: A Space Odyssey ” by Arthur C.

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 irst five chapters basically tells the tal 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 ook 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 favourit.

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 tal they wanted to tell and Clarke ’ s question 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.
