    At first, only a few things are known about the celestial object that astronomers dub Rama. It is huge, weighing more than ten trillion tons. And it is hurtling through the solar system at inconceivable speed. Then a space probe confirms the unthinkable: Rama is no natural object. It is, incredibly, an interstellar spacecraft. Space explorers and planet-bound scientists alike prepare for mankind's first encounter with alien intelligence.

    What disappointed you about Rendezvous with Rama?

    Microsoft Sam's robotic voice could have read this just as well as the narrator did. It was painful to listen. I ended up listening at 1.5 speed and that helped make it manageable. He read roboticly and very slowly. Also, I prefer a much more character and story drive book. I've come to understand that really hard science fiction is not my preference.


    Has Rendezvous with Rama turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I am less likely to try really science centered hard sci-fi in the future.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Peter Ganim and Robert J. Sawyer (Introduction) ’s performances?

    No!


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The idea was very interesting, but ultimately left me bored.
