All of Clarke's novels are excellent, of course, but I sure as hell wouldn't want to live in the future society he envisioned in 3001...



When this thread started a few weeks back, after watching 2001 again, I decided that I wanted to refresh my memory of 3001, and found a hardcover at Half-Price Books. Just started in reading it last night; haven't gotten much past where Frank is brought back and has met Dr. Wallace. Although I know I enjoyed the book when it was first published sixteen years ago, I can't recall much about it.

At least now I have a complete collection of the Space Odyssey series.

I started to re-read it also because of this thread. I haven't read it in over 20 years, its funny all the stuff you forget.

No kidding. I suppose it might be partly because I only read it once (as opposed to 2010, which I read a couple of times). Or because I've read so much else since.

Either way, it's always a pleasure to re-read an ACC novel.

It came out in 1997, and you haven't read it in over 20 years?

Far out, man.

^I think you misread Procutus's post, because he was talking about rereading 3001, not 2001.

Indeed that's what happen. Glad I wasn't too snarky, hate when simple misreads blow up. Much appreciated for keeping me straight.
