Rendezvous with Rama

Book of the Month:
“Rendezvous with Rama” by Arthur C. Clarke

Hi all,

We’ve decided to stick with space adventures for this month, inspired by last month’s book “The Sparrow”. So let’s turn to one of the greats of the genre, Arthur C. Clarke! We have read other novels and short stories by Clarke and people say that Rama is “a cornerstone of [Clarke’s] bibliography” (okay, Wikipedia says, but you get it). We’re looking forward to learning more about the celestial object that scientists dub “Rama” and traveling with them as they travel out of Earth orbit to investigate.

Looking for some more information on this 1973 published, Hugo-award winning novel? Here’s a great article from the Guardian about the story and how it factor’s into the friendship/rivalry between Clarke and Asimov: https://www.theguardian.com/books/booksblog/2011/feb/10/rendezvous-with-rama-arthur-c-clarke

There’s, did you know that Morgan Freeman has been trying to make a movie of this for YEARS?! He even had ‘Alien 3’ and ‘Se7en’ director David Fincher on board at one point but it fell through. I’m already on board and I haven’t even read the book yet! Anyway, think about your dream casting for the film and we’ll see you all in March.
