Rendezvous with Rama

By Arthur C Clarke

First published in 1972, Rendezvous with Rama is set in the 22nd century, and the story involves a cylindrical thirty-mile-long alien starship that passes through Earth's solar system. This story is told from the perspective of a group of human explorers, who intercept the ship in an attempt to unlock its mysteries.

This novel won both the Nebula and Hugo awards upon its release, and is widely regarded as one of the cornerstones in Clarke's bibliography. It is considered a science fiction classic, and is particularly seen as a key hard science fiction text.

 

 

Review by TC

 

 



Probably one of the best works by Clarke. A huge metallic cylinder hurdles through the solar system without responding to our attempts at communication. Somebody will have to rendezvous with it. A classic.
