5.0 out of 5 stars
Believable, realistic........brilliant!, 2 Jun. 2001
Most science fiction novels are based on unimaginable technologies and just assumptions that these technologies can become reality, however far into the future. Clarke is brilliant and meticulous in his use of technologies - and the explanations of how they came into being and how they are used are excellent.
If you want a novel that still has that fantasy quality without being based in Wonderland this is one to read. A breath of fresh air!
