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.
"A daring romp through the solar system and a worthy successor to 2001."

For those who loved the classic Sci-fi "2001: A Space Odyssey," this story is a must read. In this sequel to the movie and book, the artificial intelligence called HAL is brought back to life, and we find out what really happened to Dave Bowman. In addition, the author attempts to describe the beings behind the monolith and the reasons for their actions. Arthur C. Clarke's "Odyssey Two" is brilliant, imaginative and thought provoking.
