"A daring romp through the solar system and a worthy successor to 2001." *Carl Sagan Nine years after the disastrous Discovery mission to Jupiter in 2001, a joint U.S.-Soviet expedition sets out to rendezvous with the derelict spacecraft *to search the memory banks of the mutinous computer HAL 9000 for clues to what went wrong . . . and what became of Commander Dave Bowman. Without warning, a Chinese expedition targets the same objective, turning the recovery mission into a frenzied race for the precious information Discovery may hold about the enigmatic monolith that orbits Jupiter. Meanwhile, the being that was once Dave Bowman *the only human to unlock the mystery of the monolith *streaks toward Earth on a vital mission of its own . . . "Clarke deftly blends discovery, philosophy, and a newly acquired sense of play." *Time "2010 is easily Clarkes' best book in over a decade." *The San Diego Tribune

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.
