I have just finished another read through of, 2001: A Space Odyssey by Arthur C. Clarke and I have to say that it will forever be one of my favorite books. The chapters are crisp, to the point and leave you turning the page even if it is two in the morning and you have to go to work in five hours. As I read it, my inner thoughts of creativity are sparked and my mind envisions the wonderful sights painted by Mr. Clarke, seen through the eyes of Dave Bowman. The concepts put forth in this science fiction novel will propel mankind forward towards a future where, hopefully we realize our full potential. Who knows, maybe one day each of us will become a Star-Child.
