    While I'm curious about the Childhood's End adaptation, I'm not sure I felt like 2061 or 3001 were worth a first reading, perhaps my memory of them is just too hazy.

  • Most of Clarke's work isn't that interesting when you read it, I find – nice science, poor characters. 2001, 2010, etc – all a bit mince. But with someone good at adaptations*, they can turn out to be classics.

    *I'm aware Clarke actually adapted the movie for the first in the series, rather than the other way round
