A Great Book

by Dizzy on Jul 7, 2011

This is one of Arthur C Clarke's best books, I am not saying that any of his book's are not good they are all Great and to me Arthur C Clarke is one of the best book writer's ever. This book does start off slow but then starts pulling you in as if you are there. In the 22nd century visionary scientist Vannevar Morgan conceives the most grandiose engineering project of all time, and one which will revolutionize the future of humankind of space: a Space Elevator, 36,000 kilometres high, anchored to an equatorial island in the Indian Ocean.
