The Fountains of Paradise
This was the 1st Clarke novel I'd read after a long hiatus of decades. It's got the usual dominant-male-pursues-impossible-dream type plot. I actually like that sort of thing sometimes - esp if the "impossible dream" is compelling. In this case, it's a giant 'elevator' from a sacred mountain to off-planet. This, of course, brings in philisophical-religious conflict of cultures - w/ ye olde white guy as the aggressor that I suppose most of us are expected to root for. Another in-one-side-of-the-brain-&-out-the-other type of reading experience. In other words, it didn't make much of an impression on me.
