It has been 40 years since the publication of this classic science-fiction novel that changed the way we look at the stars and ourselves. From the savannas of Africa at the dawn of mankind to the rings of Saturn as man adventures to the outer rim of our solar system, 2001: A Space Odyssey is a journey unlike any other.

This allegory about humanity's exploration of the universe, and the universe's reaction to humanity, was the basis for director Stanley Kubrick's immortal film, and lives on as a hallmark achievement in storytelling. Download and start listening now!

    " A very enjoyable read, even after many other authors have explored similar themes. "

    " The easily readable sci-fi great was a brilliant introduction to Arthur C Clarke for me. It filled in the blanks that had been left from the film, but not only that, I saw Clarke's vision and his inescapable wisdom and wit. A truly fantastic book which I hope to introduce to my son soon. "

    " More detailed than movie. So some parts more interesting - start and end mostly. "

    " It was certainly interesting, but I agree with many other reviewers that it is mostly famous because of the impact that the movie had on special effects history. The book read quite slowly, and the immense detail often felt unhelpful and mostly contributed to the lagging pace. Some may like this book, but despite my love for science fiction, I have concluded that Arthur C. Clarke books aren't for me. "
