    1. Dr.Heywood Floyd, is back for the third installment of the 2001 series,still vigorous at the ripe old age of 103.Apparently the good Dr. requires excitement to live.His next mission is to land on Halley's Comet, in the year 2061.When the most famous comet there is, comes back,past the orbit of Earth, which it has done for 20,000 years A CELEBRITY,HE GETS A FREE RIDE ON THE Spaceship Universe, a luxury liner,Heywood has been in a lot worse crafts in his trips.The best feature in the space liner i [...]

    2. Jos jedna ineresantna knjiga prepuna originalnih ideja i lepih scena (citav deo oko Halejeve komete je izvrstan) ali sve ukupno ipak ostavlja daleko slabiji utisak nego prethodne dve. Jednostavno mi nekako fali na osecaju velicine, monumentalnosti. Ka SF roma je odlican ali mi je nekako suvise konvencionalan za gosn Klarka. Vise mi dodje kao neka medju prica nego pravi nastavak.Nemojte me razumeti pogresno knjiga je vredna citanja, naravno, ali treba smanjiti ocekivanj sto ja nisam odradio.ocena [...]

    3. 4.5 Stars. Loved it !! :DJust like its preceding book 2010: Odyssey Two, this is a book full of wonder, awesomeness, vivid imagery and adventure.Preferring to rate books independently, I really liked this one. The landings on Halley's Comet, and Europa, along with their vivid descriptions of the landscape and life-forms make it an engaging read filled with wonder! Based on certain facts and conjectures, Clarke has written some good stuff using his wide imagination. Celestial mechanics seem to be [...]

    4. third book in Clarke's Odyssey-Sagaort plot description: set (obviously) 51 years after the events in "2010: Odyssey Two" we meet again Dr. Heywood Floyd, now 103 years old. Mankind has build bases on the moon and Ganymede (where a scientist makes an astonishing discovery about Europa) and advances in science have made interplanetary space travel economical feasible, which paved the way for private enterprises. One of them is Tsung Spacelines where Chris Floyd, grandson of Heywood Floyd, works o [...]

    5. 2061 may seem like a random date in which to continue the Space Odyssey story into a third book, but there is a very good reason for it - the return of Halley's Comet.Amazingly Dr Heywood Floyd, middle-aged in the first two books, is still going strong aged one hundred and three, thanks to half a lifetime spent in low gravity, orbiting Earth in a space hospital after a bad fall. His grand-son is also an astronaut and they are about to meet up after a space-jacking in the Jovian system as all eye [...]

    6. Not as wonderful and gripping as 2001, but still better than the 2010. Not a very long and complex adventure, but great world-building and it's reasonable shortness makes sure you don't get bored by the lack of action.

    7. This was incredibly slow moving. It also felt confusing, and the characters don't come alive very well. Clarke has two plots going at the same time and the effect (of going between the two ships) is confusing. There isn't much of a plot and nothing of very much interest happens. (Even the hi-jacking feels cheesy.) Having said that, Clarke is more of a scientist than a writer and what captivates me is the astronomy, the science, the feeling of space travel and descriptions of outer space as well [...]

    8. THIS REVIEW HAS SPOILERS!!!Very elderly Dr Floyd is invited to join a pleasure cruise to land on Halley's Comet, which suddenly turns into a rescue mission when his grandson's ship is hijacked and crashes on Europa. According to the first two books, this was supposed to be a really bad deal.So I kept waiting for the ship to be destroyed or the people to get eaten by the previously malevolent Europansbut nothing happens. The hijacking plan is never explained and no one is ever held responsible. T [...]

    9. There really wasn't any reason to write this book besides cashing in on its very well know predecessors 2001 and 2010, both of which are supported by two very different but decent movie adaptations.I dont' remember a single event from the book, but just remember getting it for Christmas and being excited by the cool cover. Fairly disappointing, really.

    10. Have not read all of the books in this series, but of course this one is in the shadow of the original. 2001 was such a realistic yet profound SF book. So can the following sequels still feel fresh and surprise? After the second book, which I did not feel gripped me as much (the film either), this next one again is similar. The writing style of Clarke is always a good crafted standard, but is dating now. There is mystery in this next book, though it does move along a little slowly until becoming [...]

    11. This series started as a one-off book released in conjunction with the Stanley Kubrick movie of the same name. The series consists of: * 2001: A Space Odyssey * 2010: Odyssey Two. (Also made into a film) * 2061 Odyssey Three * 3001: The Final OdysseyThe first and second books are enthralling. 2061 is more of the same, and thus decent but somewhat pointless as part of the arc. 3001 is an attempt at closing up all the loose threads, and does so in a satisfying way.For a long time, these books frus [...]

    12. third read - 29 September 2010 - This is a choppy story set on two different spaceships in the Space Odyssey universe. It came out about the time of the return of Halley's comet in 1986, and is set at the time of the comet's next expected visit to the inner solar system in 2061. One spaceship brings a very elderly Heywood Floyd along on a visit to the comet itself, and Clarke's descriptions are, as usual, quite vivid. Then the other spaceship is hijacked and crashes onto Europa, giving some memb [...]

    13. بدی خوندن کتاب‌های کلارک اینه که انتظار داری یه اثر عالی جلوت باشه و با این پیش‌فرض، اگه یه مقدار هم اثر از مسیر کمال بلغزه، به نظرت نابخشودنی می‌آد. این کتاب هم یکی از اون جاها رو داشت. داستان در ادامهٔ اودیسه‌های پیشینه و خیلی هم خوب و جذاب نوشته شده، ولی در پایان این حس رو م [...]

    14. More Odyssey and at first glance set in a completely random year! However, when you know that 2061 is the year that Halley's Comet is next due to pass Earth it begins to make sense. Heywood Floyd is now a centurion but thanks to huge lengths of time in space has the body of a sixty year old. In 2061 he is invited on a trip aboard the Universe, a space tourism trip that will land on Halley's comet. Meanwhile his grandson Chris is aboard sister ship Galaxy and is headed for a fly-by of the not to [...]

    15. The book is good when read as the third installment to the space odyssey series. The plot is intriguing; the hard science-fiction part dealing with descriptions of the celestial bodies and the fictionalised imagination of the Jovian satellites with the new sun is very impressive. But on its own, the book is not that interesting. As is usual for Clarke, there is hardly any character development. Many threads get entangled in what seems to be a forcefully delivered sequel. It doesn't seem that Cla [...]

    16. Es un libro muy confuso y repetitivo en mas de un capitulo se remontaba a recordar sucesos de los anteriores libros, siento que no aporto nada a la saga, este libro se lo pudo haber ahorrado

    17. It took me a while to finish this one. That’s mostly due to the fact that I usually switch between books at a certain number of chapters, and the chapters in this are very short. The year was chosen as that is when Halley’s Comet will again be visible from Earth, and part of the story is concerned with a crew landing on the comet itself. As the book was written before the fall of apartheid, Clarke predicts a revolution in South Africa that results in much of the white population leaving the [...]

    18. Ничего нового! Arthur C. Clarke пишет плохо, но ровно, так что третья часть ничем не отличается (ни по стилю, ни по настроению, ни по качеству) от первых двух, и всё, что было сказано о них, справедливо и для 2061: Odyssey Three!!!

    19. It's been decades since I read 2001 and 2010, so I was a little concerned that I wouldn't be able to follow the story. That being said, while there were a few references to the old novels, the story was easy to follow. My memories of 2001 and 2010 are vague, but I'm pretty sure those books were a lot better than this one. It was interesting, but just not as captivating as the earlier ones. I'm now on to 3001

    20. I thought it was OK. Another step down from the previous entry, but honestly, I liked how much it explained the mysteries that had been left unexplained in the previous book. It wasn't quite as exciting or action packed, just a book for fans to get some answers to their burning questions. On to the finale!

    21. Prologue: An alien civilization triggers the implosion of Jupiter to form a minisun which would be able to sustain the evolution of life on Europa. David Bowman, the astronaut who had become pure energy-being, sends out a warning to Earth through the radio of Discovery, the abandoned ship in Jovian province, forbidding humans to land on Europa. David Bowman and the ship's artificial intelligence HAL, have integrated themselves into a single conscious form of energy and they are staying on Europa [...]

    22. 3,5 stars ( really need a half star rating).It was an enjoyable ride, and compared to the previous book, a walk in the park. Sir Arthur C Clarke's writing had been as captivating as when I first read A Space Odyssey, but I guess this book suffers from a rather severe case of technological advancement: since it's the future, and now everything is easier, some of the thrills (well, almost all of them) that made me love the previous novel so much (I think this series peaked at Odyssey Two) had been [...]

    23. Este é terceiro e penúltimo livro da séria iniciada com "2001: Uma Odisseia no Espaço" e continuada com "2010: Segunda Odisseia" e que revisita novamente a interferência do monólito, que foi deixado por uma civilização extraterrestre no sistema solar, na evolução da espécie humana . Não sendo uma continuação directa dos livros anteriores, é mesmo assim uma narrativa da continuação da história dos protagonistas dos livros anteriores, em particular do astronauta Heywood Floyd, so [...]

    24. Even as part of a series that I've found mediocre at best, 2061 was a disappointing, awful book. Clarke demonstrates again how clumsy he is at creating and developing characters. The plot is unnecessary, and nothing of particular importance happens until the very end (which is also when Dave and Hal make their sole brief appearance). We're treated to the usual chauvinistic, awkward writing, this time with occasional random chapters about a gay couple on a space hospital (??).It's interesting to [...]

    25. I'm sad to say, Arthur C. Clarke's "2061 (Space Odyssey Book 3)" is nowhere near as good as the previous book in the series. First of all, the first third of the book is almost entirely filler. Some of it is used for positioning the pieces on the board. But, for all intents and purposes, it could have been cut entirely from the book. Second, the crux of the rest of the book is that a spaceship gets stranded somewhere. It survives its "landing," but can't leave without fuel. But, unless I'm mis-r [...]

    26. Storyline: 2/5Characters: 2/5Writing Style: 3/5World: 2/5If asked to choose my favorite first two books of any science fiction series, I probably would choose 2001: A Space Odyssey and its second, 2010: Odyssey Two. I am disgruntled then to find 2061: Odyssey Three to be of such inferior quality. Clarke took this a different direction, and I now have doubts as to who was responsible for the meandering Rama sequels. I've hitherto blamed Gentry Lee for redirecting that series, but a lot of the sam [...]
