Description du produit

Revue de presse

“One of the coolest gifts you can get for your favorite sci-fi geek . . . You’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but these new Penguin Galaxy hardcovers make it really hard.” —Gizmodo

“Serious science fiction and fantasy readers cannot resist the classics. . . . That’s what makes the Penguin Galaxy series so appealing. . . . Each of the novels here has earned their place in the halls of literary history. . . . Their small form factor and minimalist covers call out to readers and make them fun to read all over again.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Dazzling . . . Wrenching . . . A mind bender.” —Time
 
“[Clarke is] a master who is as deft at generating accelerating, almost painful suspense as he is knowledgeable and accurate (and fascinating) about the technical and human details of space flight and exploration.” —The New York Times
 
“By standing the universe on its head, he makes us see the ordinary universe in a different light.” —The New Yorker

Présentation de l'éditeur

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…

Il n'est plus besoin de présenter ce grand classique. Ayant était écrit en collaboration avec Kubrick, le livre et le film sont très proches. En ce qui concerne le livre, j'ai grandement apprécié que l'auteur rentre dans les détails techniques et astronautiques. De fait, 2001 se place entre le roman de SF et l'ouvrage de vulgarisation scientifique. Tout ceci, bien entendu, porté par un style à la Asimov : agréable, efficace, percutant et pourtant très descriptif.
Cette édition jouit d'une intéressante préface récente de l'auteur (de 1999 - le livre date de 1968) qui raconte la création de l'oeuvre et le lien privilégié qu'entretenaient A.C. Clarke et S. Kubrick.

Sometimes an existing book is converted into a movie and they usually get away with saying "based on" so they can do everything from abbreviating the story to downright telling a different story but using the same name.

Other books are written after the movie. This can sometimes clarify what you watched. Of course that depends on what clarifying is. The book "Forbidden Planet" by W. J. Stuart is a good example.

This book "2001: A Space Odyssey" was written parallel with the movie and each gave feedback to the other during their production. Be sure to read the forward which tells the differences and why.

The story gets a little wordy in its descriptions but at least you will know what you are looking at in the movie from this description.

It is hard to describe the plot without spoilers however what if we were engineered to survive? What if the project to engineer us is ongoing?

I bought the hard copy, the Kindle Edition, and Whispersync for Voice.

Relations ordinateur/homme sur fond de danger(s) spatial où la confiance apparaît indispensable.
Une histoire captivante, pleine de rebondissements, de doutes... On se laisse facilement imaginer le décor, les personnages.
Une référence à lire, sans aucun doute.

A computer/human relationship based story where confidence is required because of empty space perils.
A truly absorbing book, to be read.

Ce livre s'inscrit dans la grande tradition des romans de SF, à la fois réaliste et profond. Le film qui l'accompagne n'est pas entièrement à la hauteur de sa version écrite.
A recommander, dans le texte bien sûr!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Stands the Test of Time 31 août 2015
Par John Cook - Publié sur Amazon.com

The Kindle version of this book was cleanly formatted without any noticeable typos, making this a pleasant reading experience in portrait mode. I did notice there were some issues with not allowing for columns for reading in landscape mode on my iPad, but I prefer portrait mode to reading and it was fine with that.

Onto the actual book:

Having seen the film 2001: A Space Odyssey many years ago and being blown away by how powerful it was, and also a bit scared by it. I loved the way it told a story without necessarily explaining everything, and really allowing one's own imagination to fill in some of the gaps. Knowing that there was also a novel, I had always wanted to read it, but never got around to it...upon seeing this Kindle version on sale, I decided to give it a go.

First of all, it was very interesting reading Arthur C. Clarke's introduction at the beginning. Sometimes I don't like reading such introductions because they either somewhat spoil the book you're about to read or don't add a whole lot, but this one was an interesting read for someone who had seen the film but not yet read the novel. I didn't realize that both the screenplay and book were written at the same time...making this a very unique pair as typically one comes before the other...so although this isn't a novel that simply came before a film like many are, or a novelization of a film that had been made (which is typically not worth the time of day to read), it is a novel written by a fantastic science fiction writer inspired by the collaboration of writing the screenplay with Stanley Kubrick.

Much of the book is very similar to the movie, but the way it is written adds many details without being bogged down...this is a very fast-paced read. The writing is focused on the big picture more so than the characters, but the main characters involved in each individual section get fleshed out well enough that it is very gripping to read.

Being written before we'd ever even landed on the moon, it's amazing how well this story stands the test of time. I enjoy stories involving space travel and a lot of times the era something is written can occasionally take you out of the story by laughable concepts or dated science. The feeling I got from this reading was that it explained things in a way that don't date the technology being discussed in any way that ruins the overall story. Although 2001 is 14 years before the writing of this review and clearly many of the breakthroughs and events leading up to this specific story haven't taken place yet or are different than actual history, it is fascinating on some of the things that are part of our reality now...beyond that, this is full of what ifs related to our own existence within a vast universe.

I definitely recommend this reading, whether or not you've seen the film and whether or not you plan to read the rest of the series. I likely will at some point, but this book is great as a stand-alone title.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The Odyssey Begins! 7 juillet 2012
Par Jero Briggs - Publié sur Amazon.com

When I first saw the film version, I didn't like it, I thought it was slow, it didn't have enough character development in it, and I also thought the end was confusing, but it did have some things to offer. I certainly thought it had a good story and plot to tell, and I thought many of the concepts in it were good. So when I found out they made a film sequel "2010: The Year We Make Contact", I decided to give it a look, and I loved it. Unlike the first film, I did not think it was slow, and it was a lot clearer, and cleared up a lot of the mysteries left at the end of the first film. After watching "2010" I decided to give "2001" another try, and although I still think it's slow at times and it could have been better, I do like the first film now. Then I decided to read the novel, and I think the novel is even better than the film.

There are some distinct differences between the film and the novel, most of them I think made the novel better. The man-apes at the beginning go though a lot more in the novel than in the film, there's more character development between them (although trying to do that in a film wouldn't have worked given that they are primitives that can't speak, but in the novel it works great), you actually see what the alien Monolith does to them, you see them gradually becoming more and more human after their encounter with the Monolith, and you see them confront the leopard that has been terrorizing them before they confront the rival man-ape tribe. There's more character development involving Dr. Floyd, Frank Poole, and Commander David Bowman. Our characters have more emotion in this novel rather than being almost completely emotionless as in the film. The novel is a lot clearer than the actual movie. It goes into more detail about the race who constructed the Monoliths. And I found the part where the computer Hal-9000 malfuntions and starts killing the crew more suspenseful than in the film. And instead of the Discovery spacecraft going only to Jupiter as in the film, it goes to Jupiter and Saturn, and it's Saturn where Bowman encounters the second Monolith, not Jupiter as in the film. The only thing I actually liked better in the film was the part were Hal overhears Bowman and Poole ploting against him. Hal's discovery of their intentions to disconnect him are played out differently in the novel.

Like the film though there are some parts that seem slow which is why I'm giving the novel four stars instead of five, but overall, I thought the novel was much better and a lot more suspenseful than the film. I really enjoyed reading this and I think any other sci-fi fan will too.

Highly recommended!
5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the classics of sci-fi! 8 juin 2017

Classic sci-fi!

The key issue in the book, a rogue ship computer offing the crewmembers in an attempt to carry out its mission, is only at the surface level. The underlying issue Clarke explores in this book is man's journey into the cosmos and brushing up against alien intelligence much more advanced than our own.

I will say, the end of this book is really where the 'odyssey' begins. It's trippy. And for those of you who have watched the movie and been confused by the ending, I think the book's will help give some context.

Overall, it's a fantastic read if you are into sci-fi. For those who don't usually read sci-fi, this book can feel a little slow. That's because Clarke takes his time exploring one or two central ideas in his books, not rushing onto the next. However, the book isn't very long regardless.

If you like this book, check out Clarke's Rendezvous with Rama!

I’ve seen the movie multiple times but I had never read the book, which is really strange considering my love of science fiction. The book was pretty good but fairly boring at times – there’s not a lot of action and there’s a lot of reflection as there is really only one main human character. The author is a bit wordy describing the visuals: I think that is more reflective of the writing style at the time as today’s editors would be cutting a lot of it out. Despite that, I enjoyed it for what it was and promptly ordered the sequel.

If you’re a science fiction fan, you need to check this one off of your bucket list.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Sci-Fi classic that is a must read for a lover of the genre! 3 août 2015

This book was published when I was in High School and I purchased it and read it then. I just recently repurchased it for my Kindles to reread. The book is a classic of Science Fiction and it is a must read for anyone that loves Sci-Fi. I read the book before I saw the movie and I think that is the right way to understand this story. Both the book and the movie are entertaining in their own way.

I will not ruin the plot or the storyline but it is an interesting one with the aliens influencing mankind on the path of intelligence and learning. This is a good book and it is a good story without wars or combat with aliens. It is about understanding how mankind developed and where we might be headed in the future. I like this book and I recommend it.
