Nine years after the disastrous Discovery mission to Jupiter in 2001, a joint U.S.-Soviet expedition sets out to rendezvous with the derelict spacecraft *to search the memory banks of the mutinous computer HAL 9000 for clues to what went wrong . . . and what became of Commander Dave Bowman.
Without warning, a Chinese expedition targets the same objective, turning the recovery mission into a frenzied race for the precious information Discovery may hold about the enigmatic monolith that orbits Jupiter.
Meanwhile, the being that was once Dave Bowman *the only human to unlock the mystery of the monolith *streaks toward Earth on a vital mission of its own . . .
"Clarke deftly blends discovery, philosophy, and a newly acquired sense of play."
"2010 is easily Clarkes' best book in over a decade."
*The San Diego Tribune

Loved the movie tie ins. Loved the story behind the original collaboration for 2001. If they ever make another movie in the series, THEN I'll read another book.Published 1 month ago by Walter Tonra
2010: Odyssey Two is a great read, especially if you've read the first book. Both books provide a lot of additional information not in the movie "2001: A Space Odyssey".Published 1 month ago by D. Guay
