Brill

Surprisingly contemporary on Europe, and fortunately no references to minority government. I wonder what they would have made of select committees.

Slow start, but

then characters and suspence kick in. King is a master of observation, and emotional power conveyed through incidental detail.

Thanks

Brilliant, but at times unbelievable

Another good yarn showing great skill in being a stand-alone novel, yet keying with its predecessor. Only the complete character changes induced by tragic circumstances seemed unreal.

Brilliant and believable

Arthur C Clarke has created a magnificent Rama yarn, beautifully woven in detail and consistency of vision. He makes us feel small on our planet, and encourages respect for our home.

Convoluted simplicity?

A great idea became buried under layers of overlapping concepts. Book needs simplification. At the end one wonders at the confusion of focus.

Works at many levels

Arthur C Clarke weaves a captivating yarn which mixes sci-fi with strong personalities, cultural roots, power and vulnerability. I wasn't so sure about the ending.

Still accurate and thought provoking

Haven't enjoyed an Arthur C Clarke for 40+ years, but they are so well told and researched that they hold futuristic alongside realistic. God rest you Arthur

Thoughtful, thorough, hopeful, and inspiring

I commend an insightful challenge to the greedy for the needy. Democracy, both formal and virtual, must be reinvigorated. Thanks Owen.
