Read from June 09 to 10, 2010

4.0 to 4.5 stars. Another superb novel by one of the greatest science fiction writers of all time. One of Clarke's earlier works, this is actually a re-write of [book:Against the Fall of Night|33841 and thus does not read like an early novel. Well written and full of BIG, BIG ideas it is classic Clarke. Set billions of years in the future, this is the story of a stagnant society, disconnected from the rest of the galaxy that, with the help of the main character, rediscovers it's place in the universe. Along with Isaac Asimov, no one writes better about big concepts and big ideas. This book is a true treasure for any fan of Clarke or any fan of "big idea" science fiction. Recommended!!!
