They say that there are the ABC's of Science Fiction:
Well, today I am going to review a book by C, Arthur C. Clarke!

A book that progresses time. A strange thing appears to the first men. A strange thing appears on the moon. Going through space on a mission to Jupiter in 2001.
Genre: Science Fiction
Characters: 8, we have some detailed characters, I would just like to know more about all of them! We have this printer in our house that we call Hal. That says a lot.
Words: 8, a few bad words, but not that bad.
"Children grow fast in this low gravity. But they don't age so quickly---they'll live longer than we do."
Storyline: 7, The storyline is sort of confusing, but you get into it. There and some attacking, and death, but there is life too.
Good For: People who like Science Fiction, People who have to do things on their own, People who have lost a friend.
Overall Score: 8!
2001: A Space Odyssey (1968):

Genre: Science Fiction
Costumes: 6, they were okay.
Script: 7, a few bad words.

Music: 9, it uses the classical piece of music, "Also sprach Zarathustra" by Richard Strauss and when you hear it you think, "2001!"

Quotes: 8, "What do you think you're doing, Dave?"
Storyline: 5, If you haven't read the book, you really have no idea what is happening! It doesn't really explain anything. The thing with this movie is that everything takes so long! And there is this sequence of colors that might make you sick. There is some death, and some attacking.
Good For: People who like Science Fiction, People who like things to take forever, People who like flashing colors.
Overall Score: 6!
The book wins!
The scary thing with 2001: A Space Odyssey, is that when the book was written, and the movie made, these things seemed so strange, but with technology we are actually there. Scary.
Thank you so much for reading! What do you think of this? Did I give it a proper review?
