Why did I love this book?
I feel that Rendezvous with Rama perfectly encapsulates the very theme of piquing your sense of wonder and curing your dystopian blues. It has a wonderful mix of mystery, awe, adventure, and even hopefulness! I can still remember the thrill I got reading about an ancient alien spaceship hurtling through our solar system. Clarke’s handling of "first contact" is so gripping and thought out that it feels almost real.
