One of the best science fiction stories of all time. It demands the readers a high level of imagination to understand the case and the happenings throughout the storyline. Best book of Arthur C Clarke, I would say!

A fertile imagination, a mastery of words, a good, brisk pace. Packed with intrigue and suspense and interesting thought experiments and characters. I am now compelled to complete the remaining two in the series.

The book has the same issues that most ACC books have...jumping through sequences without sufficient notice to the reader. There is no definite conclusion and the lack of continuity with other books (and sometimes even within the book itself, descriptions can be confusing) hamper the experience.

Still, I enjoyed reading the book, although, I prefer Asimov over Clarke.
