    " Clark is amazing. This book is amazing. If you read it, you will be amazing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darryl Foster | 2/13/2014

    " Classic Arthur, good read. The First Born are fascinating! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shean | 2/7/2014

    " What an utter waste of time. I finished this book but skipped through practically 70% of it. I want to know about the Monolith, Bowman & Jupiter. Not a completely new plot about landing on Halley! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Antonio R. | 2/5/2014

    " A collection of three sci-fi stories written by a true futurist. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erika RS | 2/5/2014

    " This was reasonably amusing but not, in my opinion, as good as the first two. I think part of the problem is that I am not particularly fond of the choppy narrative styles that all of the space odyssey books have. It is like "point of view 1", "point of view 2", "point of view 1", "point of view 3", "point of view 2", etc. I find the sudden changes disorienting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aaron | 1/20/2014

    " Another good entry in this series, but it loses a point for being slower-paced. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 1/18/2014

    " This seemed really out there and strange. But everything bizarre was verified with research done before Arthur C. Clarke started writing it. Which made it weirdly believable every step of the way. I love that he can make the most complicated concepts understandable. The man is superb. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ben Lawrence | 1/13/2014

    " He's milking the franchise on this one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Richard | 12/29/2013

    " Worst of the Odyssey series, regrettably of a statement as that is for Clarke's impressive body of work, it's nonetheless true. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaethe | 12/12/2013

    " Blah, blah, blah. I totally lost interest thirty seconds after I put it down. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pat | 12/9/2013

    " Not worth reading the whole series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marco | 7/12/2013

    " Fifty years after the alien message forbidding humans to approach the moon Europa, an expedition to Halley's Comet is forced to violate the prohibition in the name of mercy. Though it is entertaining, it lacks the epical tones of the previous volumes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Josh | 4/8/2013

    " Not as good as the first two, though portrays South Africans whimsically. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Davie | 3/25/2013

    " I love Arthur C Clarke, his Sunstorm collection is my favorite! This was good and at times really good and I plan to start the final book in the series now! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Greg | 1/26/2013

    " The weakest of the 2001 series by far "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Owain Jones | 11/28/2012

    " Still good... but less things actually happening than I would've hoped based on 2001 & 2010. Don't get me wrong, the man was a genius, he wrote the future. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bob(by) | 10/29/2012

    " I don't even remember what happens in this one. Is this where they discover aliens on Europa? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nikhil | 9/26/2012

    " A good follow up to the original "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stefan | 6/22/2012

    " Interesting enough but not great literature. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 5/15/2012

    " And now, on to 3001! "
