Rama II by Arthur C. Clarke

While it must be said that this is a good book and a great story, it does not capture the same degree of wonder and mystery that made the first Rama so good. This is far more of a traditional sci fi novel, a blockbuster if you like, overall of far less substance than the original. It removes the greatness of the original by answering the questions that were not meant to be asnwered in order to make you think. If you want to read a great clarke-lee joint project, read 'cradle'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, but one flaw, 4 Mar 2002

The dvd contains all the favourites (the only notable exception really being Telegraph Road) and the videos are excellent too, providing you with a great visual companion to the music. The section where Mark Knopfler describes the meanings behind the songs is superb, giving a real insight into the man and his music.

5.0 out of 5 stars An awesome album, 9 May 2001
To say that this album contains 'Hotel California' is an indication of its quality, it does not do it justice however. Every single track is awesome. It is impossible to pick highlights because I love every track. Also, Don Henley sings on most of the tracks and I believe him to be the most proficient vocalist of the Eagles. It's got everything, guitars, vocals, and above all, evocative, emotive and brilliant songs.
