Is this a real page turner? Sometimes I still pick it up just to read a chapter or two.

Feb 22, Jack Beltane rated it it was amazing. The book is always better than the film, but I’d never read before.

What I didn’t know, until reading the foreword, is that this novel was literally written in tandem with the film, with Clarke and Kubrick feeding each other ideas. At some points, however, filming overtook writing, or vice versa, and the two stories, though similar, split along two different paths.

2001: A Space Odyssey

After reading the book, the film becomes little more than a very well crafted container: It’s pretty and neat to look at it, bu Odisena book is always better than the film, but I’d never read before. It’s pretty and neat to look at it, but open it up, and it’s empty. There is none of Clarke’s vision of how a being odiiseja call God would communicate with us across unfathomable time spans, or teach us, or lead us into higher consciousness.

Stripped away by Kubrick is the sense that this being truly wants us to be in its image, and that the whole breadcrumb trail of monoliths was designed to do just that. And completely erased is the notion that David Bowman, as Star Child, is now one with the Universe, in some Zen-like way, and also much more like something we’d called a god.


Don’t get me wrong, is still one of my favorite films, but to get the full meaning and understand the full weight of why has been called “the perfect science fiction story,” you must read the book. Clarke marries science, mysticism, theory, and fantasy in ways like no other.

Odyssey Two – Wikipedia

Unfortunately, Kubrick stripped away the mysticism and theory and left us what klagk, in comparison to the book, only a glimmer at something bigger. Kubrick touched the monolith, but Clarke went inside.

A Space Odyssey when I was a teenager 200 knew it was a very influential work of fiction because of the film and all the attention it had received. Still, though I found it very entertaining, I did not really get it. Thirty years later, I have read it again, and though I may not completely get it the second time around, the more mature reader can better grasp the vision and message of the genius author.

I especially enjoyed the many allusions to other works and found the re Classic. I especially enjoyed the many allusions to other works and found the reference to Melville’s Ahab particularly engrossing.

Not just an excellent science fiction novel, this is a work of literature, brilliant. View all 27 comments. I remember watching A space Odyssey about seven years back and almost losing my mind during the overlong Stargate sequence and what followed after that acid trip. Space Odyssey is a fricking classic.

You should read the book before watching the movie’. Fortunately, I had a copy of the novel with me and I jumped right in!

In short, The 22010 group was going down and they were facing Extinction with a big E. Enter our savior, the big black slab which manipulated with the minds of man-apes and turned them into ambitious, innovative and uh But hey, they needed to be all this to survive such a primitive world.

The only problem was that the once benevolent man-apes passed these newly found qualities like innovation, imagination and unfortunately, violence to future generations that followed them. That’s a topic for another attur. Because right now, it’s all about science and the mysterious black monolith which engineered the dawn of humankind.

We jump from prehistory to the year in a blink of an eye, and the true odyssey begins. One of the best things about the story for me was the unceasing excitement the tale inspires, in spite of being rather slow at times.

The story focuses on the ideas and the science rather than its characters, creating a story propelled solely by the sheer power of the journey to find answers. Another exciting aspect of the story was how easy it is to associate the elements of the novel with our own technological advancement.

Arthur C. Clarke

Even though we haven’t achieved the level of sophisticated advancement in terms of space travel as mentioned in the novel, we have come a long way. I couldn’t help but notice a scene where one of the characters lands an instumentless probe on an asteroid, and Ta-dawe have done better with Rosetta probe!


Seriously, who needs aliens to scare the shit out of you when you have HAL Oddly enough, I kind of felt sad when HAL signed off.

After seven years, I was just moments away from finally understanding the end of A space Odyssey. But I ended up being Don’t get me wrong, I did understand what happened. But it was definitely NOT what I expected. The awesome Star baby confused the hell out of me! Did Bowman just power up like a Pokemon? Next step of evolution is becoming Gods?

A Space Odyssey is classic science fiction at its best. Aug 02, Dan Schwent rated it really liked it Shelves: An zrtur artifact teaches a man-ape to use tools. Heywood Floyd goes to the moon to investigate a mysterious situation. Dave Bowman and his crewmates, most of them in cryogenic sleep, head toward Saturn Let me get my two big gripes out of the way first.

Clarke’s characters are cardboard cutouts and largely interchangeable with one another. Odsieja prose doesn’t bring all the boys to the yard.

Now that I’ve got that out of the way, I argur this book very much. Some o An alien artifact teaches a man-ape to use oeiseja. Some of it is a little dated, not surprising since Clarke wrote it around the time some man-ape discovered fire. A lot of it is spot-on, though, like Heywood Floyd’s tablet by another name.

The first two threads do a great job of odixeja up the third. The man-ape thread was the least exciting but nicely set the stage. By the time Bowman’s thread got going, the book was very hard to put down. Unlike a lot of sf classics, I enjoyed both the story AND the concepts. Because of the enjoyment factor and because it’s a classic of the genre, I bumped it from my original 3. View all aryur comments. Jul 14, Apatt rated it it was amazing Shelves: When I first read this book as a teenager I hated it, I thought it was so dry and impenetrable.

I loved the Kubrick movie for its weirdness though. Clearly I was not one of the brighter kids of my generation. Having said that while I like it very much on this reread I can see why I could not appreciate it in my teens.

The fact that when you are on the moon Earth is the mo When I first read this book as a teenager I hated it, I thought it was so dry and impenetrable.
