Hari Hara Agree dwl Felix, odsiea formed the basis for Kubrick to write the dep of Space odyssey. See 1 question about The Sentinel…. Lists with This Book. Clarke, written in and first published in as “Sentinel of Eternity”. Oct 10, Vivian rated it liked it Shelves: Clarke cowrote the screenplay with Kubrick.
I prefer adaptations that are changelings and not mimics, and Kubrick did a unz montage from Clarke’s inspiration. The Sentinel is the discovery of an extraordinary object found on the lunar surface. It is the perfect opening for existential questions and Kubrick takes a fantastical tangent. I heartily agree with the most obvious difference, the change in the object’s shape between the story and the movie, adroitly sidesteps hackneyed speculation and focuses the viewers’ attention of where Kubrick wants you to look not irrelevancies.
Much shorter than I expected. I feel artthur this might be unfair because I came to this after seeing the movie, which is a much more expansive 20001, but I admire the springboard that it provided. I have to say that I wasn’t quite sure what to expect because to my shame as it’s a genre I adore in the movies I haven’t actually ever read any “real” sci-fi before I was obviously aware of Clarke’s popularity odjsea this genre but, as we all know, popularity is not always a guarantee of quality.
In this case, though, certainly it is! I was completely delighted by the style of Clarke’s writing and found myself able to really get deeply into the characters and the worlds they inhabit I was a I have to say that I wasn’t quite sure what to expect because to my shame as it’s a genre I adore in the movies I haven’t actually ever read any “real” sci-fi before I was able understand and identify with their dilemmas and situations and even felt like I understood the more technical side of what was going on – this technical content was threaded into the stories so skilfully and in just the correct amounts that it added to my layman’s understanding without bogging the pace of the stories down at all – genius!
Clarke defines “science fiction” and “fantasy” in remarkably simple terms. Both genres are prolific and eespacio I think it’s fair to say – often silly. Clarke is sometimes as silly as it gets, but he has an uncanny knack for making the reader momentarily forget odissa humans have not yet Arthur C. Clarke is sometimes as silly as it gets, but he has an uncanny knack for making the reader momentarily forget that humans have not yet achieved interplanetary, manned spaceflight; colonized the solar system; or discovered extraterrestrial life.
I do not believe many people momentarily forget that Hogwarts’s magic isn’t real and assume they can walk out the door and turn the mailbox into a catfish. Yet c.clar,e is oddly frequent to put down an Arthur C. Clark book and have to force the mind to accept that one cannot board a commercial flight to Mars.
Artur sensation is even more acute when Clarke’s format is the short story. Keeping certain motifs in common throughout the anthology contributes to un pervasiveness of the effect.
Uha short story – much more than the long-form novel – permits the author to merge his style with other familiar genres and show how far his influences go beyond science fiction.
There’s a swashbuckling characteristic to the stories that make them feel like stories intended for boys, until you remember that the action is happening aboard spacecraft and not orisea ships – and thus can’t be real Also uncanny is how conveniently open Clarke describes future technology. Clarke did not foresee certain aspects of modern computing, but he wrote in such a way that very few of his mistaken predictions get in the way.
Clarke understood that technology becomes smaller as it develops. The computers on board his spacecraft do 2001 sprawl like the bridge of the starship Enterprise. But he didn’t forsee digital preeminence. His computers still require physical media.
Audio communications have to be stored to tape and photographs have to be captured on film. There’s a limit to how much data a party can collect and carry. Solid state technology takes a back seat to vacuum tubes. In fact, they’re more forgivable for the brisk and swashbuckling stories he tells here. Verne’s mistakes are even more myriad than Clarke’s and we remember Nemo through the ages.
I think it’s fitting that Clarke tells such timeless stories in the context of a yet unrealized future. When we do carry live astronauts from planet to planet and find microbial life elsewhere in the solar system, “Breaking Strain” c.flarke “Jupiter X” will be at least as enjoyable reading for boys as Jack London and Robert Louis Stevenson was for my grandfathers.
Book excerpt: The power of “2001: A Space Odyssey”
Alas, it’s the lack of literary polish that keeps Clarke bound by our prejudices concerning science fiction. His adventures are conceptually as compelling as the fiction of Jack London or the real life drama of Ernest Shackleton.
This is a fact that all science fiction fans have grudgingly made peace with. Our zeal to proselytize others and covert them to the genre makes us hungry for tales such as these, which have more unna an ounce of general interest.
Thus, “The Sentinel” is a great jumping-in point for anyone interested in reading Clarke. One simply has to understand that it is – to borrow a phrase coined by someone else on GoodReads – of the “straight to the hips” variety of adventure, genre fiction and not sophisticated literary work.
In fact, I have a prejudice against it based on the perceived type of people who get into it. Clarke reminds me that all science fiction will become steam punk if given enough time. Taking film on board spaceships that think via vacuum tubes is only a few steps beyond the premise of robots running on steam and trenchcoat-clad private detectives in derigibles.
The difference is that one is intentionally wrongheaded and the other is naive. Nevertheless the results resemble one another. The Sentinel is a collection of short stories by Arthur C. I’ve read several of Clarke’s novels and loved thembut I wasn’t sure how I would feel about his short stories.
I shouldn’t have been concerned because Clarke, like most sci fi writers of his generation, cut his teeth writing short stories for magazines. Each story successfully creates its own internal world, and while the stories are actually quite different in tone, the main themes are space travel and what I would call the The Sentinel is a collection of short stories by Arthur C.
Each story successfully creates its own internal world, and while the stories are actually quite different in tone, the main themes are space travel and what I would call the psychology of space explorers. Most of the protagonists are pioneers of space, and enjoy the combination of the solitary life and the excitement and freedom of exploration.
By reading the stories, you get to feel the sense of wonder and exhilaration along with them. For this collection, Clarke wrote introductions to each story as well as to the book which provide some insight into his inspiration as well as updates on the science presented in the stories. In one of these intros, he notes that “Fantasy is something that couldn’t happen in the real world though often you wish it would ; Science Fiction is something that really could happen though often you’d be sorry if it did.
While I loved the book and give it five stars without reservation, I wasn’t pleased with the Kindle version. There were formatting issues throughout – mainly, the absence of periods at the end of sentences and the occasional missing letter at the beginning of a word e. While the formatting was troublesome, it didn’t prevent me from enjoying the stories or from understanding the content. I just wish that the publisher would take more care in converting the book to an e-format.
Clarke es El centinela. This collection of short stories includes the basis for Clarke’s A Space Odyssey and Childhood’s End, but in general it was a mixed bag. I enjoyed some of the stories more than others, but it took a hit for ratings because I was looking forward to finally being finished and moving on. This is a collection of short stores and novellas from the Clarke.
In esoacio, I feel like some of these hold up pretty well. He is more or less is telling a story first Um, that story may be about something very scientific, but it’s still a story.
You honestly have to step back and realize that most of odise were coming out of a vacuum at the time they were written. Oh, a side-note, the collection ends with an outline for a movie he sorta pitched.

That one c.clrake interesting. Then when the movie never went to production he sold it as a short story. It was an idea to build a story around.
