As I said before... I am a total addict of Mr. Clarke's stories. I forgot to eat and sleep. All his stories are spellbinding and very imaginative. I LOVE IT. Get it and read it and all the others; especially 3001 AND Childhood's End. The worlds governments should all read those!

I really enjoyed the book, it is a story wich is a little disconnected from the original story of the monolith, but it sets an awsome mood and tells a fantastic story in a clever setting. I read that book on a long bus trip and thaught it would last me the whole time... ended up finishing before the haflway point of my trip because I couldn't take my eyes off it! Arthur C. Clarke is an often overlooked author which he shouldn't be.

No need for this sequel. It doesn't add anything to the understanding of the monolith builders or what their way of working is. Minor insight into Bowman entity. Really it is more a Sci-Fi tale than a major novel. Some of the chapters are actually an almost textual repetition from the first two books.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Though this sequel does not compare to Arthur C. Clarke's original, 2061 offers much suspense and some enjoyment throughout. Our 7th grade class was told to read this for a Language Arts assignment. An average read, but very slow to finish. The story is about Heywood Floyd, now 101 years old in earth years, who has volunteered to ship aboard a spacecraft traveling to Halley's Comet. In his way, Floyd is embroiled in solving the mystery of a freak landing on Europa by the ill fated spacecraft "Galaxy". His son, Chris, also percieves to investigate the emergency, since nobody has landed on Europa since the warning in 2010. Heywood Floyd attempts to contact Dave Bowman for desperate advice. The result is very climactic with the monoliths and the Great Wall.
A slow paced novel, though a nice entry by Clarke. Takes a long time for the story to get going, the first 5 chapters or so. Do not read this before 2001 or 2010. Worth the very low price, which is about a dollar! The story has a nice twist, and Floyd meets an interesting fate here. Recommended for hardcore fans of Arthur C. Clarke.

This book was okay. I enjoyed it for what it was. I would suggest this for anyone who enjoys Arthur C Clarkes previous work. I don't think it was as good as 2001 but it is certainly comparable in quality to 2010. If you enjoy your science fiction injected with a little bit of realism then you will enjoy this. I have also just started 3001 and my review will be up for that soon.

2061 is one of my favorite science fiction books. I love the way it goes into technical detail. (If you know of science fiction that has more technical detail, please e-mail it to me!)
This book had potential to degenerate into a horror book. It didn't take that route, and for me that made it more eerie. You need to suspend disbelief for this book. In real life humankind has not had any widely observed direct evidence of extraterrestrial life or a "creator". In this book series, humanity finds such evidence... when Jupiter becomes a small star and the Discovery's computer sends a mysterious message calling for humans to make peace and granting humans permission to explore the solar system with the exception of Europa-- no other commandments or explanations. Humankind knows it's powerless against something that could create a star, and so it obeys the monolith's laconic directives.
Imagine the scene at the end of the movie 2010. We are shown that Euopa is changing thanks to Jupiter having been turned into a sun. We see water an plant life. In the distance we hear movement. Could animal life have developed? Although it looks like a swamp, we know the atmosphere is mostly methane-- the environment is nothing like anything on Earth. Then we see the monolith silently towering over the swamp, influencing it perhaps as it influenced Earth a billion years ago. Now for 50 years human kind has diffidently avoided Europa. There has been no further activity associated with the monolith. They have tired to observe from a distance, but clouds of vapor resulting from the heat of Jupiter obscure Europa most of the time. Humans are getting more and more daring about how close to Europa they venture. In this book, humans decide to risk sending down a probe.

I bought this book because I was interested in following the saga of David Bowman, Heywood Floys and HAL beyond what was available in the movies.
It is 50 years after Jupiter has imploded and people live in a highly technological world where the Chinese space program sets the standard. A mishap in space, followed by starnge events leads us on an unforgettable adventure where we begin to learn what the monolith's peurpose is.
The reason I state that you should also buy 3001, is that this book, while important to the story, does not provide the answers to the monolith's mission, but serves as pre-text to the final story where everything is revealed. While I am not an enormous sci-fi fan, I truly enjoyed Clarke's description of the future.
If you are looking for closure, read the last two books, it is a wild ride, very informative and in the end everything will beceom a whole lot clearer.
