2001: A Space Odyssey

Saturday, March 4, 2017

I was recently able, almost by accident, to get a hold of a copy of 2001: A Space Odyssey and decided to give it a go. Being a fan of all things sci-fi, I was eager to re-read the classic and unique tale Mr. Clarke gave us so many years ago. 

Boy, I wasn't disappointed! The story still felt super compelling and interesting from cover to cover. The way every detail is brought up, developed then put together with the rest to form an amazing story is incredible. Contrary to the first time I read it, I didn’t feel the first part of the novel (the apes) was too slow. Like the rest of the story, it was fine and every single little element of the story fits perfectly in the right spot. 

2001: A Space Odyssey is a massive classic that's very hard to comment or review, other than admitting it's quite possibly the best sci-fi novel one can read. I highly recommend it.
