As soon as I finished reading this I thought, man, I wish I didn t suck so badly at science, because being an astronomer would be SO FREAKING COOL.
But I do suck so badly at science, so I just get to read wonders like this and wish I was half as good a writer as Arthur C Clarke, who gets to be really friggin smart in TWO CAREERS, which is totally unfair.
There are several great things about this book First, and one of the things that I love to read old sci fi books for, is what Clarke in the 80s thought 2010 was going to look like Some of it is actually kind of close, which is pretty cool, and some of it is either useless and we never bothered to create it or it s still beyond us in terms of technology Second, I read the first book about seven years ago and have completely forgotten it, so the references in this were a little And because, in all the Galaxy, they had found nothingprecious than Mind, they encouraged its dawning everywhere They became farmers in the field of stars they sowed, and sometimes they reaped And sometimes, dispassionately, they had to weed Guys, I think I ve found my new favourite series ever These books are SO GOOD The amount of work and research put into them is incredible and both the first book and this one have completely blown my mind Proper review to come.
Space Baby s Big Day Out.
After the events in 2001 Dave becoming a Space Baby, HAL being shut down while singing , the world is left in wonder about what happened out near Saturn.
JUPITER Sorry, Jupiter Right It was Jupiter all along.
Dr Floyd, the bureaucrat who ventured to the Moon to check out TMA 1 is back and now he looks like Roy Schneider who I see died in 2008The Russkis are headed out to check out what happened slightly quicker than what the U.
S can manage Oh how times don t change Anyway, partnerships all are happy, joint U.
S and Russian crew.
So this is the story of recovering HAL and the further adventures of Space Baby Dave And while it isn t as grand and as awe inspiring as 2001, it s still a fun read with lots of nerdy details and some small instances ofthan two dimensional characterisation There is a brilliant flashback chapter involving Dave as a child and the death
2010 Odyssey Two Space Odyssey 2 , Arthur C Clarke 2010 20101371 340 9644350227 Jedna od omiljenih stvari kod ovih knjiga su imaginacija pisca pri smisljanju novih svetova i vrsta i njihov uverljiv opis Kada se cita prosto imas pred ocima sve ono o cemu gosn Klark pise Prosto ne verovatno.
S druge strane isto mi se svidja kolko je covek ispred svog vremena kada govori i o daleko ljudskijim stvarima ka sto seksualnost ili brak bez problema provlaceci veze izmedju vise ljudi ili ljudi stog pola A jos veci plus je nacin na koji je prikazan da to uopste ne bode oci vec ide varijantom podrazumeva se Iskreno kada sam bio u osnovnoj ovakve stvari su mi totalno i promakle dok sada se nadam da i drugi pisci mogu biti ne napadni u takvim segmentima.
Sta drugo reci, odlican nastavak na jedan od naj knjiga SF zanra i jos jedno obavezno stivo.
Arthur C Clarke s sequel to 2001, has Dr Heywood Floyd, again recruited on a joint U.
S and Soviet written in 1982 expedition, to the giant planet.
To find out what happened The crew of the Soviet ship Leonov ,consists of seven Russians and three Americans,with both male and female members.
Floyd,Dr Chandra, builder of the malfunctioning computer Hal a long repair trip and Walter Curnow a systems specialist, are the Americans.
Curnow job is to get Discovery working again before it crashes down on Io ,a hellish volcanic world and one of the many Jovian moons The real reason of the trip is of course ☆ 2010: Odyssey Two ☆ This is an excellent and underrated novel.
Clarke was and still is under fire from critics beacuse of his characters.
Either they are wooden or unrealistic though realistic characters are pure fantasy or rudimentary or stock or I don t know some similiar nonsense.
What they don t,or maybe don t want to understand is that Clarke was a big picture writer.
He was a visionary who lived in the future.
He was someone who was aware that we are nothing compared to the wonders of the Cosmos.
Through his masterpieces he was the one who showed us those wonders.
2010 is one of his many masterpieces.

Although, the novel contains many captivating sub plots and a driving, gripping backdrop I want to credit Arthur C Clarke for the most wonderful depictions of the Jovian system Within the first half, he describes the bands of Jovian clouds, the cyclonic storms, the radiation belt and the high energy electron beam connecting Io to Jupiter he depicts Io, a land of fiery volcanoes, violent eruptions making umbrella clouds and molten lava lakes and he uses all the available information about Callisto, Ganymede and Europa to paint a vivid and entrancing picture of the moonscapes using his never exhausting arsenal of beautiful, sublime metaphors Perhaps, Clarke s le Discovery , HAL 9000 Dave Bowman , , Discovery, Dave Bowman ,Clarke, .
