3.0 out of 5 stars Solid, but not brilliant., 22 July 2003
Tim Everaerts (Antwerp, Belgium) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Earthlight (Hardcover)
The premise of an interplanatary geopolitical conflict was very promising. As usual, Clarke succeeds in keeping science and fiction well balanced. The characters are not mere cardboard figures and the plot evolves logically. However, this (short) novel is not Clarke's best. It is not as overwhelming as '2001', it lacks the suspense of 'A Fall of Moondust', and the ending is perhaps a bit too optimistic. Reading 'Earthlight' is certainly not a waste of time, on the contrary, but it is not as exhilarating as some of Clarke's other work.
