Arthur C. Clarke has been the presiding genius of science fiction for almost fifty years. His works include the ground-breaking and profound CHILDHOOD'S END, RENDEZVOUS WITH RAMA and EXPEDITION TO EARTH. Written when landing on the moon was still a dream, made into one of the most influential films of our century, brilliant, compulsive, prophetic, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY tackles the enduring theme of man's place in the universe. On the moon an enigma is uncovered. So great are the implications that, for the first time, men are sent out deep into the solar system. But, before they can reach their destination, things begin to go wrong, horribly wrong...

The film is superb but very complex, the book is so much easier to follow, and if you dont understand a chapter its easy to reread it! Great price for a modern classic.

Great music too.

Start with finding Clarke's short story "The Sentinel" which was the original inspiration.

The followup books 2010 and 2060 (I think) are also pretty good.
