S I was interested in eg Hal but the things we spent time n too Boarding House of Hunks often just couldn t hold my attention The last third was much interesting to me but I couldn t really say for sure what my problem was before thatI would say it works as a continuationf 2001 even though it feels as if n a smaller scale The enigma f the Spaceship Discovery lost in Jupiter s Bec (The Demonata, orbit the setting has been changed from Saturn in theriginal book to match Kubrick s film The imaginative Arthur C Clarke s seuel to 2001 has Dr Heywood Floyd again recruited The Further Mishaps of Charlie Chumpkins on a joint US and Soviet woopswritten in 1982 expedition to the giant sphere the numerous colors yeprange too planet find ut what happened The crew f the Soviet ship Leonov consists f seven Russians and three Americans with both male and female members DrFloyd Dr Chandra builder f the malfunctioning computer Hal a long repair trip and Walter Curnow a systems specialist are the Americans Curnow job is to get Discovery working again before it crashes down n Io a hellish volcanic world and ne Our Planet: Our Home of the many exotic Jovian moons But the real reasonf the trip is Kakoong, Pahlawan Pulau Awan Vol. 8 of course just a little complicated people are so devious Discovery s Captain David Bowman s disappearance and his last wordsMy God it s fullf stars haunts the Earth still to this very day what does he mean The mysterious black monolith that is floating in space between Jupiter and her moon how dangerous a threat is it to Earth The uite able Captain Tatiana Orlova is in charge and even has her husband n board makes for an interesting voyage but no time for a honeymoon All the crew begin to call the monolith Big Brother even the uncomfortable Soviets A shocking development arises when the Chinese send the spaceship Tsien ahead f the Leonov using all their fuel to arrive first An unbelievable suicide mission What is their ultimate goal steal valuable information from the Discovery and Big Brother The puzzle continues when the Chinese land Journeys of Frodo: An Atlas of J.R.R.Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings on another Jovian moon the strange ice satellite Europa An understandable confusion in the spaceship indeed but meanwhile the viewf Jupiter s dazzling atmosphere is not to be missed Its constant color changes white red range and the Great Red Spot nonetheless something strange is seen from the Leonov a black image is spreading n the Fifth PlanetSoon it will engulf the entire sphereWhat is it doing and important for what reason maybe to cause trouble for the Soviets and Americans a chilling prospect Exciting follow up to 2001 not as good to be honest since few book could top the riginal in the genre however an agreeable space adventure Space Baby s Big Day OutAfter the events in 2001 Dave becoming a Space Baby HAL being shut down while singing the world is left in wonder about what happened ut near SaturnJUPITER Sorry Jupiter Right It was Jupiter all alongDr Floyd the bureaucrat who ventured to the Moon to check ut TMA 1 is back and now he looks like Roy Schneider who I see died in 2008 The Russkis are headed ut to check ut what happened slightly uicker than what the US can manage Oh how times don t change Anyway partnerships all are happy joint US and Russian crewSo this is the story f recovering HAL and the further adventures A Stepdaughter In Heat (Daddy Daughter Sex Stories) of Space Baby Dave And while it isn t as grand and as awe inspiring as 2001 it s still a fun read with lotsf nerdy details and some small instances f than two dimensional characterisation There is a brilliant flashback chapter involving Dave as a child and the death f his lder brother The farmer aliens are in the background if they are even still alive and active Maybe it s just their machines acting for them now Maybe they are retired to some higher dimension r some In the End other bullshitThe events are plausible and very much fun Even theirut stuff with Space Baby is not as far ut as those final chapters f 2001 It s nowhere near as hippy dippy So if you read 2001 and YOU SHOULD carry nto the second volume Not as good much understandable and good fun I found myself sad about HAL s fate though Wow This was a very fun read I loved it A slow moving plot the last 50 r so pages we get some results and som.

Daisy Daisy give me your answer do Funny that this innocuous kiddies tune always reminds me f a homicidal supercomputer Arthur C Clarke in spite f being a sci fi legend is not known for his characterization but HAL 9000 is ne f the most memorable sci fi characters ever with his friend Dave Bowman not far behindWith 2010 Odyssey Two we are back to the future which is now the past Some people will be put ff from reading this book because it is set six years ago and nothing like what transpires in the book ccurred in the real 2010 Us long time sci fi readers are very tolerant The Age of Treachery of the real futurevertaking the fictional ne The important thing is the story and the alien technology in this book has not been made to look silly by today s Earthly tech Better still Clarke makes the super tech seems believable 2010 Odyssey Two takes place nine years after the classic 2001 A Space Odyssey thank you Captain Obvious At the end f the previous book the spaceship Discovery is abandoned in Jupiter s The Catcher in the Rye and Philosophy orbit and the ship s single survivor David Bowman went through a gigantic monolith that turnsut to be a portal Seven Sisters New Quilts from an Old Favorite of some kind and nobody has heard from him since And what is all this OMG it s fullf stars business Has he sneaked Bike Mechanic: Tales from the Road and the Workshop (Rouleur) off to Beverly HillsSpacecraft DiscoveryThis seuel is centeredn the Russian spacecraft The Cosmonaut Alexei Leonov manned mostly by Russian crew with a couple f Americans to legitimize entry into The Discovery which is US property Their mission is to find ut what happened to Discovery HAL 9000 and Bowman and also to investigate the giant Big BrotherZagadka monolith that Bowman went through What they discover is a project When a Man Loves a Woman of cosmic proportionsThe early partf 2010 Odyssey Two is less than riveting as Clarke goes into detail about the family life f the book s protagonist Heywood Floyd and their pet dolphins Then there are several lengthy scientific expository passages leading up to the rendezvous with the Discovery which are too dry for my taste I do like hard SF the real world science enhances the verisimilitude f the futuristic plot Unfortunately long infodumps tend to be very dry read like extracts from a scientific journal article This is a trap that hard sf authors Keep From Falling often fall into though to his credit Clarke s expositions are accessible than most Science in tandem with storytellingn the Catalogue the Insanity other hand can be very effective and fascinating The best partsf this book are where Clarke successfully integrate the science into the narrative The giant Big BrotherZagadka monolith at Jupiter click to embiggenFor example Clarke s application Blessed Homecoming of scientific minutiae during Floyd s explorationf the Discovery derelict makes for a wonderfully atmospheric scene love the surprising Ridley Scott s Alien reference The restoration and rebooting revival Shrek of HAL 9000 is my favorite partf the book gotta love that HAL As for David Bowman he has become something posthuman but still retains much f his humanity in his thoughts and actionsNot the same ld DaveFor most Look Alikes Jr. of the book 2010 Odyssey Two chugs along at a deliberate pace though the first halff the book is not all that compelling but readable enough to stay ut f the bin The narrative becomes much exciting as things become increasingly Architecture for the Shroud: Relic and Ritual in Turin outlandish and David Bowman goesn his almost metaphysical missions at the behest Collecting and Exhibiting Computer-Based Technology: Expert Curation at the Museums of the Smithsonian Institution of his inscrutable alien masters The view spoilerredemption hide spoiler And because in all the Galaxy they had found nothing precious than Mind they encouraged its dawning everywhere They became farmers in the fieldf stars they sowed and sometimes they reaped And sometimes dispassionately they had to weed Guys I think I ve found my new favourite series ever These books are SO GOOD The amount He Remembers the Barren of work and research put into them is incredible and both the first book and thisne have completely blown my mind Proper review to come This book was really good concerning characters and their relationships I loved reading their interactions and some The Early Girl Gets the Blood Wolf of their personal issuesHowever for some reason the actual plot didn t get me hooked Maybene aspect Diary of a Library Nerd: An Erotic Diary of One Woman's Metamorphosis of it was that we spent too few timen aspect.
