BookPage Reviews

No round-up of millennium books would be complete without the novel that commandeered the very date, "2001: A Space Odyssey." Note that Arthur C. Clarke understood when a new century begins. As Clarke points out in his introduction, when Stanley Kubrick called him in 1964, the moon landing still seemed a distant dream, and most people alive now had not even been born. The voyage of the spacecraft "Discovery," with its worried Earthmen and talkative computer ("What are you doing, Dave?"), is as suspenseful and provocative as ever. This edition includes the author's reminiscences about the movie, the book and the sequels.
