2010: Odyssey Two
"A daring romp through the solar system and a worthy successor to 2001."
; *Carl Sagan
Nine years after the disastrous Discovery mission to Jupiter in 2001, a joint U.S.-Soviet expedition sets out to rendezvous with the derelict spacecraft; *to search the memory banks of the mutinous computer HAL 9000 for clues to what went wrong . . . and what became of Commander Dave Bowman.
Without warning, a Chinese expedition targets the same objective, turning the recovery mission into a frenzied race for the precious information Discovery may hold about the enigmatic monolith that orbits Jupiter.
Meanwhile, the being that was once Dave Bowman; *the only human to unlock the mystery of the monolith; *streaks toward Earth on a vital mission of its own . . .
"Clarke deftly blends discovery, philosophy, and a newly acquired sense of play."
"2010 is easily Clarkes' best book in over a decade."
; *The San Diego Tribune

I had just found a public library when I checked this book out. A long afternoon later, it was gone, and I kept thinking about a swarm of monoliths making Jupiter a sun for the rest of the week. Fun stuff. Read full review
