    "A truly accomplished novel, brilliant!"
    If you could sum up The Fountains of Paradise in three words, what would they be?

    Big, bold and Brilliant!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There are a few likable characters in this book, however the protagonist, Morgan steals the show. Clarke managers to make me feel for this person and ultimately further invest my emotions into the story and where it may lead.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The building of the space elevator was among many scenes in this book that are truly brilliant in scope. The ending was also unexpected and equally excellent.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    One step to the stars.


    Any additional comments?
