Much of the book is very similar to the movie, but the way it is written adds many details without being bogged down…this is a very fast-paced read. The writing is focused on the big picture more so than the characters, but the main characters involved in each individual section get fleshed out well enough that it is very gripping to read.
I enjoy stories involving space travel and a lot of times the era something is written can occasionally take you out of the story by laughable concepts or dated science. I likely will at some point, but this book is great as a stand-alone title. I certainly thought it had a good story and plot to tell, and I thought many of the concepts in it were good.
Unlike the first film, I did not think it was slow, and it was a lot clearer, and cleared up a lot of the mysteries left at the end of the first film.
Then I decided to read the novel, and I think the novel is even better than the film. There are some distinct differences between the film and the novel, most of them I think made the novel better. Our characters have more emotion in this novel rather than being almost completely emotionless as in the film.
The novel is a lot clearer than the actual movie. It goes into more detail about the race who constructed the Monoliths.

Though we met only a few times during the three decades after completing , we remained in friendly touch-as is demonstrated by the generous message which he sent to the BBC when I appeared on This Is Your Life : August 22, Dear Arthur, I'm sorry that work on my film prevents me from joining in this great honour to you tonight.
You are deservedly the best known science fiction writer in the world. You have done more than anyone to give us a vision of mankind reaching out from cradle earth to our future in the stars, where alien intelligences may treat us like a godlike father, or possibly like the "Godfather.
But whether future generations will ever have the opportunity to know of this depends on the answer to your favorite question: Is there intelligent life on Earth? Yours, A few nights ago I dreamed that we were talking together he was looking exactly the same as in !
One of my deepest regrets now is that we shall not be able to welcome the year together. Clarke 16 April Foreword to the Millennial Edition It is now thirty-five years since Stanley Kubrick began his quest for the proverbial "good science fiction movie," and already seems to belong to another age. Only a handful of men-and one woman-had gone into space, and although President Kennedy had announced the United States' intention of putting a man on the Moon before the end of the decade, I doubt if many people believed it would actually happen.
Moreover, our genuine knowledge of our neighbors in space was still virtually zero: we could not even be sure that the first probe to touch down on the Moon would not instantly sink into a sea of dust, as some astronomers had confidently predicted.
To give some sense of perspective, let me quote from the mostly nonfictional account of our enterprise, The Lost Worlds of , which I wrote in when everything was still fresh in my mind: "In the spring of '64,,, the lunar landing still seemed psychologically a dream of the far future. But the portents were clear; I often remarked to Stanley that the film would be still on its first run when men were actually walking on the Moon.
So in writing our story line, at the early dawn of the space age, Stanley and I had a credibility problem; we wanted to create something realistic and plausible, that would not be made obsolete by the events of the next few years.
And although our original working title was How the Solar System Was Won , Stanley was aiming at something more than a straightforward tale of exploration. As he was fond of telling me, "What I want is a theme of mythic grandeur. If you want the definitive version, I refer you to the superb Voyager-Criterion video disc, which contains not only the full movie but also a vast amount of archival material relating its production.
These are glimpses of the film being shot, and discussions with the artists, scientists, and technicians who made it possible. It also shows a youthful Arthur C.
Clarke being interviewed in the lunar-module assembly room at Grumman Aircraft, surrounded by the hardware which a few years later was resting on the surface of the Moon. The sequence ends with a fascinating comparison between the movie and the later realities of Apollo, Skylab, and Shuttle flights-some of which do not look anything like as convincing as Stanley's previsions. It is therefore hardly surprising that, even in my own mind, book and movie tend to be confused with each other-and with reality; the various sequels make the situation even more complicated.
So I'd like to go back to the beginning and recall how the whole thing started. I cannot resist quoting from my reminiscences of this time: It was strange, being back in New York after several years of living in the tropical paradise of Ceylon.
Commuting-even if only for three stations on the IRT-was an exotic novelty, after my humdrum existence among elephants, coral reefs, monsoons and sunken treasure ships. The strange cries, cheerful smiling faces, and unfailingly courteous manners of the Manhattanites as they went about their mysterious affairs were a continual source of fascination; so were the comfortable trains whispering quietly through the spotless subway stations, the advertisements often charmingly adorned by amateur artists for such outlandish products as Levy's bread, the New York Post , Piel's beer, and a dozen competing brands of oral carcinogens.
But you can get used to anything in time, and after a while about fifteen minutes the glamour faded.
They should put up a plaque to mark the spot.A Night Without Stars. The writing is focused on the big picture more so than the characters, but the main characters involved in each individual section get fleshed out well enough that it is very gripping to read.
