did not like it
bookshelves: sci-fi, fiction
Read in January, 2000

** spoiler alert ** I've never read or seen 2001 (the movie is just too slow for me to get through). I saw 2010 and enjoyed it. I read 2061 and enjoyed it. But 3001 was awful. Impossibly revive a dead body that was floating in space for a thousand years, show off the author's vision of Future Earth, and defeat aliens with a computer virus because when they learn what happened during the 20th century it they will decide to exterminate us. Not to mention the retroactive continuity issues. Odyssey would've been better off left as a trilogy.
