Read full description of the books:
Along with garden of rama, this conclusion to the story , rama revealed is definetly my all time favorite science fiction saga ever.
Even despite some uninteresting soap opera stuff at the begining, the finall 200 pages of this conclusion are the most satisfying conclusion i ever read to a space saga ever.
This book ended and nicole des jardins stuck in my mind for months on end. Everytime i think of good scifi i remember the ending of this story.
Not only garden of rama and this conclusion rama revealed are incredibly imaginative and totally epic in scope and detail, but all is grounded in unforgetable characters that i loved to accompany till the very end.
Rama revealed has some imaginative concepts for a technologic "god"if you want to call it that, while at the same time keeps everything grounded in rhe humanity of the characters.
The rama series are the best spaçe adventure i ever read. I loved the sense of exploration, the hight tech lost world mysteries, not knowing what could happen next and always be rewarded by arthur clarke with more imaginative stuff ahead. And more, and more, and more.
If you like books where you feel you're one of the explorers steping into an alien and fantasy book, then this is or you.
The story is imaginative and does not waste any time pretending to act as a in your face political metaphore or something like. The rama series is pure mystery and imagination with great chatacters and an incredible epic ending.
Instead of using a scifi story to be just a background for a plot that could have been set in any type of novel , genre or enviroment, arthur larke creates a story that wouldnt be the same if it was not just about exploring an alien giant spaceship. The focus here, was really the exploration and arthur clarke really did a magnificent work in taking the reader step by step into that imaginary space world wich is as a good and detailed as anything you ever read in fantasy.
I keep wishing that someone takes these books to be adapted to cinema as good as peter jackon did with the tolkien material so far. In fact...peter jackson, if you're reading this...get this rama book series now please ! ;)
Rama revealed is an extraordinary conclusion.
The only thing similar that can compare to the scale of imagination in this final volume is the works of olaf stapledon, particulary the book, last and first men, which tell the story of humanity over a period of a bilion years.
Arthur larke wrote a forward for one of the editions , and its clear that the rama novels were very much inspired in the best sense by olaf stapleon work.
