Good Sequel. Answers questions, asks more. It's a good scifi read from one of the masters of the genre

Clarkes follow-up to his classic 2001. Fun and well thought out if a bit slow moving.

This one goes along a little slower than the first one, but it still quite enjoyable. The ideas presented here are interesting, and they made me wonder "what if?".
Sometimes the story gets bogged down by the detailing of space travel, gaseous anomalies, etc. However, I enjoyed the dynamics between the characters and the realism of the situation.
Not as good as the first, but it still holds up to it - IMHO.

Not totally consistent with 2001 but overall a good book. Somewhat short (<300pgs.) With many pages blank to separate "books". New content is further diminished by repeated text taken from 2001: A Space Odyssey.
If you have read 2001, It is worth you time to read this sequel.
