2001 a space odessey

2001: A Space Odyssey by Arthur C. Clarke is a masterpiece of perspective. As the reader is guided further and further from the earth, they are at once brought closer and closer to the true nature of reality. Clarke is in complete control of the tempo of this novel, maintaining a rhythmic, mystical subtlety throughout the development of the story that enables the reader to contemplate concepts beyond those introduced on the page.

Beyond science fiction, 2001 must be mentioned in the canon of great anti-war novels. It puts the human condition under the microscope of a universal perspective with intense and inspiring consequences.

Conclusion: Abstract, elegant and inventive, 2001 has more than earned the respect that it has garnered.
