Who would enjoy this book?
I thought that the concept of this book
was very interesting. From previous slides you know that this book was
written in 1968. It is talking about 2001. Since we know about 2001 it is amazing to see how the author thought that we as a race would advance so rapidly
David Bowman is persistent in
finding his way to survive after unsaid main conflict .

1) David continues his mission when all odds are against him

2) He continually argues with HAL over control after time and time of refusal

3) David trains hard and does not give up on his space dreams.
The action and quick decisions made by the characters in this book make this book interesting
Readers who would enjoy action and Science Fiction should definitely read this book. Admitted the beginning is a little boring but stick with it and you won't regret
