Arthur Charles Clarke: The Last Theorem

The Last Theorem was ok. It seems like it was 30% done when Clarke died and so it thinned and accelerated about 40% into the book.

The female character became very understated and subjected at that point. This seems very anti-Clarke.

Many concepts faded rather than having been elaborated.

The ending was rather abruptly happy.

The story overplayed the role of humans being the super-best species in the universe and christianity being the superior religion.

I feel that some of the technological wording was told from the viewpoint of someone who had not fully grokked.

This book did not feel like Rama or 2001 stories; however, it was worth 8 hours of reading.

I think.

It puts me off from wanting to read and of Fred Pohl's books. I wish Clarke could have been alive to finish it.
