2061: Odyssey Three (Space Odyssey #3) Reviews
Este é terceiro e penúltimo livro da séria iniciada com "2001: Uma Odisseia no Espaço" e continuada com "2010: Segunda Odisseia" e que revisita novamente a interferência do monólito, que foi deixado por uma civilização extraterrestre no sistema solar, na evolução da espécie humana . Não sendo uma continuação directa dos livros anteriores, é mesmo assim uma narrativa da continuação da história dos protagonistas dos livros anteriores, em particular do astronauta Heywood Floyd, sobrevivente da viag ...more
بدی خوندن کتابهای کلارک اینه که انتظار داری یه اثر عالی جلوت باشه و با این پیشفرض، اگه یه مقدار هم اثر از مسیر کمال بلغزه، به نظرت نابخشودنی میآد. این کتاب هم یکی از اون جاها رو داشت. داستان در ادامهٔ اودیسههای پیشینه و خیلی هم خوب و جذاب نوشته شده، ولی در پایان این حس رو میده که انگار به هیچ جای خاصی نرسیده و باید حتماً دنبالهای داشته باشه. البته کلارک دنبالهای برای این کتاب نوشته، ولی تاریخ نگارشش خیلی سال بعد از انتشار کتاب سوم بوده و سمیه میگه اونقدر بده که شک دارم اصلاً برم سمتش یا نه ...more
Es un libro muy confuso y repetitivo en mas de un capitulo se remontaba a recordar sucesos de los anteriores libros, siento que no aporto nada a la saga, este libro se lo pudo haber ahorrado
third read - 29 September 2010 - This is a choppy story set on two different spaceships in the Space Odyssey universe. It came out about the time of the return of Halley's comet in 1986, and is set at the time of the comet's next expected visit to the inner solar system in 2061. One spaceship brings a very elderly Heywood Floyd along on a visit to the comet itself, and Clarke's descriptions are, as usual, quite vivid. Then the other spaceship is hijacked and crashes onto Europa, giving some memb ...more
It's been decades since I read 2001 and 2010, so I was a little concerned that I wouldn't be able to follow the story. That being said, while there were a few references to the old novels, the story was easy to follow. My memories of 2001 and 2010 are vague, but I'm pretty sure those books were a lot better than this one. It was interesting, but just not as captivating as the earlier ones. I'm now on to 3001...
THIS REVIEW HAS SPOILERS!!!
Very elderly Dr Floyd is invited to join a pleasure cruise to land on Halley's Comet, which suddenly turns into a rescue mission when his grandson's ship is hijacked and crashes on Europa. According to the first two books, this was supposed to be a really bad deal.
So I kept waiting for the ship to be destroyed or the people to get eaten by the previously malevolent Europans......but nothing happens. The hijacking plan is never explained and no one is ever held responsi ...more
I thought it was OK. Another step down from the previous entry, but honestly, I liked how much it explained the mysteries that had been left unexplained in the previous book. It wasn't quite as exciting or action packed, just a book for fans to get some answers to their burning questions. On to the finale!
Have not read all of the books in this series, but of course this one is in the shadow of the original. 2001 was such a realistic yet profound SF book. So can the following sequels still feel fresh and surprise? After the second book, which I did not feel gripped me as much (the film either), this next one again is similar. The writing style of Clarke is always a good crafted standard, but is dating now. There is mystery in this next book, though it does move along a little slowly until becoming ...more
