1.0 out of 5 stars Ugggggggghhhh!, June 18 2004
3001 attempts to explain much of what has happened since 2001, a book whos' lack of explantation made it so popular to me.
Mankind finds superior intellect in the universe and in this book we attempt to understand "its'" purpose. This is the last of a four book set, preceded by 2010 & 2061, books that shouldn't have been written. Over four books you finally reach a pinnacle, that does nothing more than disappoint. The ending is similar to Independence Day (the movie). Computer virus wins over are ancestral guides? Ughhh!
It earns one star because it set up a great premise, but could not deliver.
