2010: Odyssey Two (Space Odyssey, #2)

By Arthur C. Clarke

Rating: 5 stars

I loved this book. Much like its predecessor it shared a sense of wonder at the universe around us. You could just imagine Clarke at his typewriting being amazing and awed at everything around him, and it fills every sentence in his work.

A decade after Dave Bowman’s last message, a joint US-Soviet expedition is sent to retrieve the Discovery. This is the story of what happens to them when they get there.

The writing is wonderful, the characters, although still sketches, are more rounded than 2001 and Hal’s last message still sends a shiver down my spine…
