Listener Opinions

    " A fine example of the pure mastery that was Arthur C Clarke. He left his mark on liturate with everyone of his stories and his spirit lives on through his life's work. Stimulating both scientists and dreamers he has had and will always have a profound impact on the way we view the universe around (and under) us. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keith Bell | 2/7/2014

    " The better of Clarke's series that started with 2001. His attempt to imagine life a thousand years out was noble but off the mark. Some of what he places in here is already true. Scary to think what it will really be like by 3001. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve | 2/6/2014

    " I must admit I was surprised about how much I liked this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wils Cain | 1/31/2014

    " The final book in the Space Odyssey series. I'm sorry it ended, and if feels as if Arthur C. Clarke was setting up direction for a fifth book. If only. The book was an enormous leap into the future and brings back a character lost in the first book, with many recurring characters you grow to know through the first three books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather | 1/19/2014

    " Not that great. I would skip it unless you're a fan of the other books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason | 1/13/2014

    " An amazing finish to the series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris Meger | 1/12/2014

    " Cool, cool, cool. If Mr. Clarke had to do 2061 to get to this, I totally understand. A wonderful ending. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chad Gibbons | 1/7/2014

    " The ending to the 2001 series fizzles and dies ingloriously. What began as the monumental journey of mankind itself, ends as a poorly written imitation of the movie 'Independence Day' "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 J T | 1/7/2014

    " Rip Van Winkle... in space. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Long Williams | 12/16/2013

    " Worthy end to the odyssey series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Bauer | 12/10/2013

    " An entertaining quick read. My only complaints are several things happened a little too easily, and that he seemed to be getting close to a deadline at the end of the book as things speed up significantly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff Anderson | 10/19/2013

    " Really good read. Again, Clarke creates a world that is soothing and calm with his prose. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Deborah | 9/26/2013

    " Absolutely hated this book! I liked all of the first books in this series but I don't know what happened with this one. Right off the first pages, this book makes a turn for the worst! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dark-Draco | 8/19/2013

    " The Final Odyssey. Frank Poole, long murdered on the first Odyssey, is found and revived 1000 years after his death. Can he solve the mystery of the Monoliths? And can he live in a world as alien as they are? An excellent end to the series and well worth the read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Phil Mullen | 8/19/2013

    " It's clearly not a great book, but I loved reading it. (Indeed, it's the 1st of the 4 I've read, though the movie was an unforgettable experience in my imagination's life.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tony Schirtzinger | 4/4/2013

    " Another book I've read a couple times. Not quite as good the second time around but still enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason M. | 12/31/2012

    " Fantastic, didn't want it to end! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Helen | 11/24/2012

    " A rather disappointing conclusion to this quartet of novels. Plot-less, urgency-less, character-less, climax-less, and answer-less. There really wasn't any reason to read it, except for the interesting idea of steering icy comets onto hot worlds to speed along terraforming efforts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clyde | 10/23/2012

    " I didn't even know this final episode in the series that began with 2001 A Space Odyssey existed, until I saw it on the bookshelf at a friend's house. Clarke has a staggering imagination. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 DaughterDaDa | 10/3/2012

    " Somewhat interesting, if you've read the previous books in the series. Weak ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marco | 8/14/2012

    " This is the conclusion of the saga started with 2001. Despite having none of the epic grandeur of the first installment, the book is very entertaining. I found particularly intriguing the author take on religion and spirituality. "
