Re: Odyssey

^^ Heh. I just made a similar post in the other 2001 thread.

I agree that it would not be very exciting to the contemporary audience. It would also be anticlimactic because it actually was anticlimactic. Far from being the "final" Odyssey, it merely delayed the confrontation for 900 years. Clarke is my favorite writer, but 3001 kind of disappointed me. Not just because of the ending, but because of the various retcons and because of the failure to follow up on the "Trinity." I was pretty psyched by 2061 and 3001 was just a let down.
