I am ashamed to admit that this is my first Arthur C. Clarke. That being said, I am absolutely blown-away by this book. The writing is utterly fantastic!! I had moments when I just couldn't put it down. The entire concept of the Space Elevator was so fleshed out, the Orbital Tower so optimistically built...I am without words to describe how I feel about this book. I actually want to couple Clarke with Mary Doria Russell. They both have a way with words and the unknowns in progress that almost has a child-like "awe" quality. I'm converted to the genius that is Arthur C. Clarke.
