An Arthur C. Clarke classic. I first read this as a child and remember finding it difficult to follow. For years I avoided re-reading it but I finally got around to doing so and thoroughly enjoyed it. I suppose I should have known my age had played a part in making me think the story was overly complicated. Rendezvous With Rama tells the story of a near-future Earth and humanity's first contact with an alien civilization. The visitor takes the shape of a huge asteroid-sized spacecraft and what happens when we meet makes for a true page-turner. It will definitely leave you prepped for the sequel!!
