If you're from the UK and can look past aliens being called 'Buggers' then I can't reccomend this book highly enough. It's a well written and well paced. The Narration is excellent which can make all the difference between a good and a bad audiobook.
It's the best audiobook I've listened to.
The book is well written. The narration is first rate. The characters were interesting.
Despite all this there wasn't enough going on in the story to hold my interest. After reading glowing reviews of this book I thought it would be a real page turner. I was mistaken. I struggled to get through this and wouldn't reccomend it.
I liked some of Clarkes ideas about life in 3001 but the book as a whole just seemed to go nowhere.
I cared nothing for the characters and the ending was badly thought through and very disappointing.
I could only get through about a third of this book. I had to force myslef through every chapter. It's just so slow. I also thought the Narrators Indian accent was trerrible.
All in all a big disappointment.
