What you expect from Arthur C Clarke Brilliant

This is no 2001, or even Sentinel. But it is well thought out, rounded and a great story. It is fairly short but Arthur is such an accomplished author the characters are well defined and presented.

Although short the tale is thought provoking and definitely a credible course of events.

Definitely one I will keep and listen to again
