Book Description

Jan. 12 1984
2001: A Space Odyssey shocked, amazed, and delighted millions in the late 1960s. An instant book and movie classic, its fame has grown over the years. Yet along with the almost universal acclaim, a host of questions has grown more insistent through the years, for example: who or what transformed Dave Bowman into the Star-Child? What alien purpose lay behind the monoliths on the Moon and out in space? What could drive HAL to kill the crew? Now all those questions and many more have been answered, in this stunning sequel to the international bestseller. Cosmic in sweep, eloquent in its depiction of Man's place in the Universe, and filled with the romance of space, this novel is a monumental achievement and a must-read for Arthur C. Clarke fans old and new.
"A daring romp through the solar system and a worthy successor to 2001."
Carl Sagan

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Jan. 31 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A wonderful continuation of 2001. The scope of time covered by this series is immense. Detailed, while leaving elements open to interpretation.

2.0 out of 5 stars just read the first book Oct. 3 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
The sequel adds almost nothing to the questions that the first books leaves in the open. Some minimal insight into the Bowman entity, but really just a glimpse of what such an entity should feel and think. Stick with the first book only, it won't further your understanding of the whole monolith plan. It is just a standard Sci-Fi tale

3.0 out of 5 stars an okay sequel June 12 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you were left baffled by 2001 this is worth a read. You might not get all your answers, but it will help shed some light on some of the mysteries surrounding the monoliths. The conclusion is pretty huge and worth the read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Once again, a great sci-fi Master triumphs! June 22 2004
By Jerry
Format:Mass Market Paperback
With this sequel to "2001", Arthur C. Clarke proves, yet again, why he is at the top of his game. This work, bringing back Heywood Floyd, along with a group of new characters, along with the evolved Dave Bowman and the monolith once again catapults us into the fantastic. This book is on my shelf along with: Stranger in a Strange Land", "Puppet Masters", "Foundation", "2001", "2010", "Rendezvous with Rama", "Ringworld", all the "Star Trek" and "Star Wars" books, as well as books as new to the genre as "Advent of the Corps" and others.

4.0 out of 5 stars What's up with EPCOT? May 10 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In this case, I'd say that the film is better than the book. I have a few complaints about the book. It bothers me that Clarke caved to the plot of the movie, 2001, and removed the whole bit about going to Saturn from Jupiter. It leaves his first book standing alone. Books and movies diverge all the time and he should have just stuck to his original storyline for the sequels.
My second complaint: what's up with the EPCOT retirement home? It's a completely hokey idea and distracting from the overall flow of the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best SF book I have ever read April 10 2004
By Imtiaz
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Although, it is part of a sequel, anyone could read it in the beginning.
It's a great story and very well-written.
And the ending is superb - with a philosophical touch.
A MUST read for any reader.

By Stephen Pletko TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
=====>
This 1982 book (that consists of 55 chapters plus an epilog), by Sir Arthur C. Clarke (who "said for years that [a sequel] was clearly impossible"), is really a hybrid book since it attempts not only to be a sequel to his previous novel ("2001: A Space Odyssey," published in 1968) but also attempts to be a sequel to the 1968 movie (also called "2001: A Space Odyssey").
In this novel, a joint Russian-American space mission is sent to the planet Jupiter (on the spaceship called "Cosmonaut Alexei Leonov") to try and discover what happened to the previous American spaceship (called "Discovery") that was sent previously in 2001. As well, Leonov's crew is "to locate the alien artifact [also called the monolith] encountered by Discovery, and to investigate it to the maximum extent possible."
Because this book attempts to be a sequel to the previous novel and the 1968 movie, it appeals to four different types of readers:
(i) those who have not read the previous novel and have not seen the 1968 movie
(ii) those who have read the previous novel only
(iii) those who have seen the 1968 movie only and
(iv) those who have read the previous novel and have seen the 1968 movie (as I have).
Each of these four types of readers will probably rate this book as follows:
(1) Those who have not read the previous movie or have not seen the 1968 movie will enjoy this novel. Reading the previous novel or seeing the 1968 movie is not needed to understand this novel. There is good character interaction and there is both known and speculative space science throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than 2001 March 18 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was much better than 2001! It did take saturn out of the storyline, but that actually made it more interesting. It starts out with Heywood Floyd finding out that the Russians are going to make it to discovery before the Americans can build discoveryII. So the Russians allow Heywood to board their ship,the Leonov, and start on the journey to Jupiter to discover the mystery of the monolith and of Hals malfunction...
