Was mir vorher nicht bewusst war: Dieses Buch wurde parallel zur Entwicklung des Filmes geschrieben. Es erzählt dieselbe Handlung (mit minimalen Abweichungen), geht aber sehr viel stärker auf das Innenleben der Charaktere ein und beschreibt und erklärt viele Details, die im Film nicht vorkamen. Es zahlt sich gerade für Fans des Films auf jeden Fall aus. Ich fand das Buch im englischen Original sehr gut lesbar und gut geschrieben.

Warum den Film zuerst schauen? Obwohl der Film die selbe Geschichte erzählt, wird im Gegensatz zum Buch nichts erklärt. Die Handlung muss man sich im Film selbst zusammenreimen, und gerade das macht einen großen Teil seines Reizes aus. Mit tollen Bildern, überlangen Szenen und spärlichen Dialogen gibt er kaum etwas über den Hintergrund des Geschehens preis, völlig zu Recht. Man wird mit seinen Gedanken und Interpretationen alleine gelassen, und das ist ein wichtiger Teil des Reizes. Der Film ist das Meisterwerk des Paares. Das Buch ist auch sehr gut, nimmt aber viel des "Mysteriums", weshalb ich froh bin, es erst nach einigen Malen, die ich den Film gesehen habe, gelesen zu haben.

This was my first time to read an E-book with the Kindle App.
Very enjoyable and the book is now a favorite. Much different than the film and then again very much the same.
Sorry, no real spoilers.
Read it, and enjoy!

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.

I thought that the book was excellent. I gave it four stars for many reasons, which include the suspense, the way the author used his imagination, and for the description. To start, this book was written a long time ago. Man had just walked on the moon, and from there space exploration had no limits. Clarke had an image of what he thought the world would be like thirty years from when he lived. He saw people living on the moon and flights that took less than an to dock with a space station. It is fun to read how he portrayed what he thought today would be like. The second thing is the suspense. It keeps you reading and you just can't wait to see what happens. What is HAL going to do next? It is a real "on the edge of your seat" type book. I never saw the movie, but I would recommend seeing it after reading the book. Finally, the description of everything. He describes everything so well. From going to the bathroom in space, to what they found on the moon, you get a clear picture of what is going on in your head. He uses words very nicely. I took one star for only one reason. That was the dragging of the book. It kind of contributes to the suspense. It takes so long from one scene to the next. There is, I thought, a lot of unneeded information. Like the part when he is reading the newspaper on the plane. Overall, I thought it was a good book and I recommend it to anyone. 5-9-00

Arthur C. Clarke is one of my favourite SF authors. I saw the movie and started reading the book years ago but never finished and never understood why it was such a big success. But after reading nearly all of his other books I thought I would give this one another try and to my surprise I loved it! It is really a good book, though some parts are outdated and have been done so often by other SF authors since this book has been written that some ideas seem old now (though they weren't when the book was first published). But that's only a minor drawback, it still is quite enjoyable and HAL is one of my favourite computer in a novel ever.
I can only recommend it esp. for people who watched to movie and thought 'What was that all about?' The book gives some answers.

A superior science fiction novel that is based in science fact and thought out inscience fiction. Everyone has there own veiw on what the book truly represents; yet most, myself included, agree that it is based on the quetion: what makes us different from other primates?

Clarke attempts to answer this with a fictionus account on what started it all. But how much fiction is is...

The next question: what is this "intelligence" we have that others do not seem to posses,a and how would we know we know it when we say it? Clarke answers this question in the form of HAL. The arficialy intelligent computer onboard <i>Discovery</i>, the ship carrying Bowman and Poole and 4 hipernauts headed for Saturnanian moon, Japetus. The only crew meber onboard who knows exactly why is HAL, who becomes dangeroussly obbsessive with his sole reason in "life", to get to Japetus and carry out the mission. He feels he could do it better wthout the crew. So acts upon those thoughts.

And the final question: whart would other intelleigent life be like outside our own planet? Clarke answers this with what was Bowman, now the Star Child immortal.

This is a book for anyone interisted in astronomy and the the querstion of who we are. Truly one hell of a book.

This book is SO great! I am very eager to read the rest of the series. This book is about a black, rectangular slab, about a mile high, called TMA-1(The Monolith Anomaly #1)which is discovered on the moon about 30 feet under. Earth sends a spaceship, called Discovery, which is supposed to investigate. But the two crew members, David Bowman and Frank Poole, don't know about it. They think they are supposed to rendevouz with the Discovery II while in hibernation. The only people who know anything about TMA-1 are three frozen hibernauts, and the computer that controls the ship, HAL 9000. But HAL starts malfunctioning, and Bowman and Poole want to disconnect HAL. And HAL, who knows this mission is most important, cannot let them do that. This adventure leads to Saturn's imaginary moon, Japetus, where the most mysterious things begin to happen.....But, i'm not going to tell you what happens, you'll just have to read the book. So hop aboard! Join Bowman and Poole, aboard Discovery, while the science-fiction mystery begins to unravel......Based on one of the most fantastic movies of all time, directed by Stanley Kubrick, director of Dr. Strangelove, Clockwork Orange, and Eyes Wide Shut, 2001: A Space Odyssey will bend your mind and spark your imagination!

First, let me recommend watching the movie before reading the book. The book is much more powerful after you have tried to puzzle the meaning of the monolith for yourself. Then, if you did not understand the movie, or want clarification on certain points, this book is the place to turn. It answered my two main questions: "What did the story of HAL 9000 have to do with the story of the monolith?" and "What did the ending mean?"
Unless you are a fan of the old school of "hard" science fiction, you'll probably be annoyed by Clarke's overly-expository writing style and obsessive devotion to scientific accuracy. This story was obviously written when the science was much more important than the fiction. At times, it reads like an astronomy textbook. But, in the end, all your questions from the movie will be answered. If you like the answers, you'll like the book. If you enjoyed "figuring out" the movie, the book will spoil the mystery for you.
In the final analysis, this novel deserves high marks because without it the classic film would never have been made, or at least would have turned out much differently. In his companion book "The Lost Worlds of 2001," Clarke describes how the movie and novel were developed simultaneously with feedback in both directions. Clarke would write a chunk of the story, Kubrick would film it, then Clarke would revise what he had written to parallel the movie. Both Clarke and Kubrick wanted the movie and the novel to be viewed as one collaborative effort, even though there are some minor discrepancies between the two. The story was originally inspired by Clarke's much older short story "The Sentinel".

While I consider the Kubrick film one of the most profound, hypnotic, beautiful, and astonishing movies ever made, I never got around to reading the Clarke book until a few days ago. Since it is a short novel written in a conventional narrative style, I read it in just an hour or two. While Clarke's expansion on life at "The Dawn of Man" is gripping and imaginative, and the descriptions as a whole are phenomenal, this story is much more impressive in the film. One of the major problems with the book are the utterly flat, dull characters. Clarke may be a master conceptualist of the Infinite, but his understandings of the ordinary human mind are a bit vague. Every character in the book serves a strictly narrative function and no more. Dave Bowman has to be one of the blandest main characters in modern fiction, Frank Poole and Dr. Floyd are no more than ciphers, and the remaining inhabitants of the book are basically a string of names and no more. I know that Kubrick deliberately exploited this aspect of the story in the film, exaggerating the banality of human interactions beneath the shimmering veneer of our advanced technologies (and suggesting as well that not much has changed in the day-to-day activities of the human race since its earliest times) to underscore the idea that humanity has become stagnant and is ready for the next "phase". Frankly, both Kubrick and Clarke are guilty of exalting an abstract idea of "humanity" (which, I must say, does not really seem to include women) or "mankind" over the messy, emotional and fleshly reality that is our lot. Ultimately, I found this book very disturbing for the following reasons: its blatant worship of authority and technology, and its impoverished view of human relationships. It is no wonder that Clarke's book still resonates with confused adolescents: this is the perfect book for insecure, alienated teen-agers who really don't want to grow up and become part of the human race. Nevertheless, I do give the book 4 stars because of the vastness and intelligence of its concept - there aren't that many popular novels which make you think about the enormity of the universe. I just wish that Clarke's vision of the ultimate in human potential did not entail total submission to one dominant male or another.

This is one of the greatest books of all time. The Author wrote this with the most brilliant image of space travel and horror mixed into a highly top secret discovery mission. This is one of the only books I could say that I understood it for its fullest and I would like to reccommend it to anyone who loves a highly intelectual and errie plot. Author C. Clarke wrote this book with hardly any dialouge and the book has one of the greatest plots and is the most interesting book os all-time. 2001: A Space Odyssey is a look of human evolution and the becoming of man to a discovery on the moons of mars. I also like the way the author made it an Odyssey and not just an ordinary investigation of a discovery. It was a very scarry book and made me (the reader) think a lot about the coming of man and the discovery and technology we are hoping to see as a race. The book is excellent along with the movie. I would say the book explains more about the mission and the adventure and danger of the space travel to the moons of Saturn. The movie was concidered a masterpeace the book is a thing of art and understanding. If you love books which are unspected and very mind visioul i would get this book as soon as possible the book is one of the greatest science fition books of our time and of any time. It is a sure masterpiece. Also a book you will enjoy and think about.
