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.
