Intelligence It will kindle their wildest dreams and fan their darkest fears For no one knows who the Ramans are or why they have come And now the moment of rendezvous awaits just behind a Raman airlock doo There was just enough detail to go with the all the mystery behind the alien ship hurtling through the solar system to make Arthur C Clarke s Rendezvous with Rama an engaging and thought provoking read Other than a spaceflight to intercept and explore the huge Raman spacecraft there s very little action in this novel and unfortunately very little character development I do think there is a sense of wonder about the possibilities contained in the mysterious ship The book whets your appetite to get to the bottom of some of the mysteries contained on the Raman spacecraft and maybe even meet some actual Ramans but given that the ship has a limited amount of time in the solar system there are lots of unanswered uestions While Clarke doesn t explain all the mysteries that s also a strength of the novel We as readers supply some of our own answers about the possibilities This makes Rendezvous with Rama an engaging read 375 stars
