Review by MyopicBookworm
A poorly written vehicle for some more of Clarke's technological future-gazing. The format is just another take on H. G. Wells's <i>The Sleeper Wakes</i> using the 2001 astronaut Frank Poole as the central character. The author confesses to what I instantly spotted - that five of the chapters are lifted from earlier books in the sequence. An afterword traces the sequence from the original short story written in 1948: it's a pity that, other than updating of technology, the style of the prose is still stuck in 1948.MB 14-vi-2013
