Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
'3001 is not just a page-turner, plugged in to the great icons of HAL and the monoliths, but a book of wisdom too, pithy and provocative'

The body of Frank Poole, lost for a thousand years since the computer HAL caused his death en route to Jupiter, is retrieved, revived - and enhanced. In the most eagerly awaited sequel of all time, the terrifying truth of the Monoliths' mission is a mystery only Poole can resolve.

'A one man literary Big Bang, Clarke has originated his own vast and teeming futurist universe'

'Well-paced and absorbing . . . It is as a flight of fancy by the master of science fiction that 3001 makes its mark'

'In his exciting new novel, Clarke reveals the ominous answer about the ultimate purpose of the monoliths'

'Serene, uplifting, and icy clear'

'From the moment I picked it up, I couldn't put it down. 3001 The Final Odyssey is a tour de force that finally answers the questions that sparked the imaginations of an entire generation'
