[Novel] The Fountains of Paradise (Arthur C. Clarke)

the-fountains-of-paradise

A hard sci-fi book in the usual style of Arthur C. Clarke where science is both the plot and the main character. If you’re interested in a realistic depiction of building a space elevator, you’ll love this book, otherwise you probably want to stay away.

Positive: Negative:
Simple, straightforward prose Characters only serve to further the exploration of scientific concepts
Thought-provoking on the future of technology
The whole story only serves to further the exploration of scientific concepts
Based on legit hard science Can be pretty dull if you aren’t into science and space
