Overview

THE CLASSIC SCIENCE FICTION NOVEL THAT CHANGED THE WAY WE LOOKED AT THE STARS AND OURSELVES

From the savannas of Africa at the dawn of mankind to the rings of Saturn as man ventures to the outer rim of our solar system, 2001: A Space Odyssey is a journey unlike any other.
 
This allegory about humanity’s exploration of their universe, and the universe’s reaction to humanity was the basis for director Stanley Kubrick’s immortal film, and lives on as a hallmark achievement in storytelling.

Praise

“Dazzling. . .wrenching. . .a mind bender.”—Time

“Brain-boggling.”—Life
 
“Full of poetry, scientific imagination, and typical wry Clarke wit. By standing the universe on its head, he makes us see the ordinary universe in a different light. . .[This novel becomes] a complex allegory about the history of the world.”—The New Yorker
 
“Clarke has constructed an effective work of fiction. . .with the meticulous creation of an extraterrestrial environment, the sort of extrapolation of which Mr. Clarke is a master.”—Library Journal
