The plot idea is nice, and the writing starts out nice enough, but it really falls off towards the end. All the action scenes are clumsy, many don't make sense. Also - something I dislike in movies, too - the plot only goes forward because the main character behaves exceedingly stupid. Not a great listen, I'm afraid.
Old men telling a story about what they imagine to be how young people live, interspersed with their egomanical views on how to "save the world".
He did ok.
Most everything. All the "happily living along in Sri Lanka" stuff.
The worst book by Clarke I know. By far. All of his old ideas mixed into one book, in a boring story with very little "science fiction".
Yes, but only if the author doesn't read it.The book is good, the arguments, while not new, well founded in quotations and facts. Interesting and sometimes new (to me) details.
Sorry, but the man can't read. Slurry, hard to understand, monotone that makes you sleepy.
