Book two in awesome series
It's tough to follow up a novel like the original 'Rama'. Arthur C. Clarke does so very well, although there are setbacks in annoying characters and lengthy character development that takes up most of the pages. On the bright side, we are introduced to Nicole des Jardins, who becomes the pivotal figure in the later books. She is Clarke's most respectable hero/heroine, in my opinion. This book is a necessary staple in the Rama series and sets the stage for the next two.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Description makes for action-packed book.
Clark, Arthur C. Rama 2. New York: Bantam, 1980. ¿Rama 2¿ is about an alien space craft that enters our solar system. At first everyone thinks that it is an asteroid but they find that it is so symmetrically perfect that it can¿t be. Earth sends astronauts, scientists and, mathematicians to explore this alien craft. When they explore the craft, they find that it is actually an uninhabited world. ¿Rama 2¿ is well-written. It keeps readers attention throughout the story. Clark uses big descriptive words through out the book which in turn makes for a good action-packed book. The words carry a lot of meaning and this makes it less boring to read. This book is one of four in the Rama series and it makes you want to read the rest of the series. Clark does a very good job in making this series because each book is long but full of action.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
