Review: Reach for Tomorrow

User Review  - DM - Goodreads

Simple and engaging short stories. I always love reading Clarke's stuff. I miss this style of sci-fi writing in today's world. It's all about emotions and explosions and not what it's supposed to be about, exploration of possibilities. The celebration of science. Read full review

Review: Reach for Tomorrow

User Review  - Michael Thompson - Goodreads

Mostly the same stories as in the Collected Works of Arthur C Clarke series. Only 2 or 3 different stories, so I breezed through this one. Earlier works, so not as thought provoking and deeply rooted in science. Read full review
