3001: The Final Odyssey Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One thousand years after the Jupiter mission to explore the mysterious Monolith had been destroyed, after Dave Bowman was transformed into the Star Child, Frank Poole drifted in space, frozen and forgotten, leaving the supercomputer HAL inoperable. But now Poole has returned to life, awakening in a world far different from the one he left behind — and just as the Monolith may be stirring once again...

Review:

"A fascinating picture of our future: cities atop needlelike towers that extend into space, the colonization of Venus, the pacification of humanity, and the abolition of religion." Newsweek

Review:

"Clarke's agile imagination stretches our notions of how things can be, should be, and might be in man's unfolding destiny. The novel is a torrent of challenging ideas." Roger Ebert

Review:

"A satisfying conclusion to the series....It is tightly constructed and stands well in its own right." Rocky Mountain News

Review:

"3001: The Final Odyssey has an eerie and compelling plausibility." Business Week

Review:

"Science-fiction master Arthur C. Clarke has taken generations of readers to the far and lonely reaches of the universe." USA Today

Review:

"Unfortunately, Clarke uses this book as a vehicle to showcase scientific ideas and breakthroughs at the expense of the story....Recommended only to complete the quartet." Library Journal

Review:

"Much of the enjoyment of the book comes from...the high-tech thingamajigs that often differ interestingly from their present-day analogues....[F]ans will most likely embrace 3001." John Allen Paulos, The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"From the moment I picked it up, I couldn't put it down. 3001: The Final Odyssey is a tour de force that finally answers the questions that sparked the imaginations of an entire generation." Buzz Aldrin

Review:

"Clarke, while never uninteresting, long ago abandoned drama; here, he simply reports, with the dispassionate precision of HAL before he went bananas." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"3001 is interesting and enjoyable, worth the price and worth the wait." San Diego Union-Tribune

Synopsis:

The grand finale of the legendary series begun in 2001: A Space Odyssey. One thousand years after the Jupiter mission, Frank Poole has returned from drifting frozen in space.
