Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"A daring romp through the solar system and a worthy successor to 2001."
*Carl Sagan


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."
*Time


"2010 is easily Clarkes' best book in over a decade."
*The San Diego Tribune
