    Dr.Heywood Floyd, is back for the third installment of the 2001 series,still vigorous at the ripe old age of 103.Apparently the good Dr requires excitement to live.His next mission is to land on Halley s Comet, in the year 2061.When the most famous comet there is, comes back,past the orbit of Earth, which it has done for 20,000 years.AS A CELEBRITY,HE GETS A FREE RIDE ON THE Spaceship Universe, a luxury liner,Heywood has been in a lot worse crafts in his trips.The best feature in the space line Dr.Heywood Floyd, is back for the third installment of the 2001 series,still vigorous at the ripe old age of 103.Apparently the good Dr requires excitement to live.His next mission is to land on Halley s Comet, in the year 2061.When the most famous comet there is, comes back,past the orbit of Earth, which it has done for 20,000 years.AS A CELEBRITY,HE GETS A FREE RIDE ON THE Spaceship Universe, a luxury liner,Heywood has been in a lot worse crafts in his trips.The best feature in the space liner is a swimming pool Yes,you read right Because of the continuous thrust of the rocket, there is gravity on board.The passengers, a mixed group ,a movie star,science commentator ,musician ,astronaut, the first to land on Mercury and even a lowly writer.The five celebrities, are ironically not as well known as the sixth Floyd,who doesn t consider himself one any.Dr.Floyd calls Universe a Ship of Fools.Captain Smith has his hands full trying to control these egomaniacs Oh,and some men of science are around too.The touchdown on Halley s is surprisingly dull,just the way the captain likes it.This dirty snowball, has a few interesting things to see.Geysers,that shoot out water,which quickly turns to vapor and ice and goes out into endless space , never to return.Natural structures that look unnatural.Caves are found and the scientists, of course, need to explore them.The real reason for this voyage, knowledge, the naive men believe.A strange light at the end of a cavern is spotted but a message has been received, an emergency.They have to leave this colorless but novel place immediately Their sister spaceship,Galaxy, crashed landed on cloud covered Europa, a former moon of Jupiter,which aliens have turned into a second Sun,Lucifer A Forbidden World, that no one for fifty years,has had the courage to visit.With weird Mount Zeus towering miles high above the surface of the satellite.And also an ocean, formed there, with giant sea creatures,below,the Galaxy floating on top Nearby enormous Jupiter Lucifer,warms the sphere, as strange a place, as exists in the whole Solar System.Something doesn t make sense about the accident.The rescue ship Universe, will demand a thorough investigation But how will the aliens react By the way, Dr.Floyd s estranged grandson, is on board the Galaxy

    2061 may seem like a random date in which to continue the Space Odyssey story into a third book, but there is a very good reason for it the return of Halley s Comet.Amazingly Dr Heywood Floyd, middle aged in the first two books, is still going strong aged one hundred and three, thanks to half a lifetime spent in low gravity, orbiting Earth in a space hospital after a bad fall His grandson is also an astronaut and they are about to meet up after a space jacking in the Jovian system All eyes a 2061 may seem like a random date in which to continue the Space Odyssey story into a third book, but there is a very good reason for it the return of Halley s Comet.Amazingly Dr Heywood Floyd, middle aged in the first two books, is still going strong aged one hundred and three, thanks to half a lifetime spent in low gravity, orbiting Earth in a space hospital after a bad fall His grandson is also an astronaut and they are about to meet up after a space jacking in the Jovian system All eyes are again turned to Europa, the moon that the makers of the monoliths had warned the people of Earth to leave alone.I really enjoyed Odyssey Two, which Clarke never thought he would write and which came a long time after 2001 Despite the delay, the plot was a fitting continuation, the ending spectacular and the overall scope of the story much enhanced.This third part, however, which came soon after the second, is a pretty feeble effort, adding little to the legacy The plot is a flimsy, tensionless affair, the resolution wholly underwhelming.The inclusion of a landing on Halley s Comet is interesting enough in itself I suppose, but it has nothing to do with the wider narrative Worse yet, whole portions are simply lifted verbatim from the previous book A lazy disappointment

    This third installment of the Space Odyssey series was not as good as the first two, but it was still an enjoyable read

    This was incredibly slow moving It also felt confusing, and the characters don t come alive very well Clarke has two plots going at the same time and there isn t much of a plot as it is and nothing of very much interest happens Even the hi jacking feels cheesy Having said that, Clarke isof a scientist than a writer and what captivates me is the astronomy, the science, the feeling of space travel and descriptions of outer space as well as future technology some of which has come to pa This was incredibly slow moving It also felt confusing, and the characters don t come alive very well Clarke has two plots going at the same time and there isn t much of a plot as it is and nothing of very much interest happens Even the hi jacking feels cheesy Having said that, Clarke isof a scientist than a writer and what captivates me is the astronomy, the science, the feeling of space travel and descriptions of outer space as well as future technology some of which has come to pass that he had predicted in 1987, such as the internet and social media Here is Floyd observing a fellow passenger He found it both sad and fascinating that only through an artificial universe of video images could she establish contact with the real world What a prediction for our time Clarke sprinkles his knowledge sometimes even insider knowledge , his scientific expertise and his humor into this minor story as part of the Odyssey series But the plot limps along and then doesn t really go anywhere He has lost the wonder and majesty of 2001 A Space Odyssey Perhaps he answered too many questions, and the answers are actually dull Once he lost the mystery, this story became merely second rate science fiction But I do need to read the final installment, hoping for closure with these themes and characters sigh

    This is my first fiction book I ve read in English I ve read the first two volumes in Turkish when I asked the bookseller bout this one, he said it would be translated in a few months As an impatient reader, I bought the original I have read lots of articles about politics, law and economics but not literature or science fiction It was a good journey for me I realized that my comprehending of English was better than I thought After these series, I ordered lots of book from .

    There really wasn t any reason to write this book besides cashing in on its very well know predecessors 2001 and 2010, both of which are supported by two very different but decent movie adaptations.I dont remember a single event from the book, but just remember getting it for Christmas and being excited by the cool cover Fairly disappointing, really.
