Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
'3001 is not just a page-turner, plugged in to the great icons of HAL and the monoliths, but a book of wisdom too, pithy and provocative'
- NEW SCIENTIST
The body of Frank Poole, lost for a thousand years since the computer HAL caused his death en route to Jupiter, is retrieved, revived - and enhanced. In the most eagerly awaited sequel of all time, the terrifying truth of the Monoliths' mission is a mystery only Poole can resolve.
'A one man literary Big Bang, Clarke has originated his own vast and teeming futurist universe'- SUNDAY TIMES

'Serene, uplifting, and icy clear'
- MAIL ON SUNDAY
'From the moment I picked it up, I couldn't put it down. 3001 The Final Odyssey is a tour de force that finally answers the questions that sparked the imaginations of an entire generation'
