What the community says about Rendezvous with Rama (Rama)
- "I am normally not into reading science fiction books. However, for variety, I decided to give the genre a try again. So I came across the book "Rendezvous with Rama". I was actually surprised and enjoyed reading it. It was not super complicated like I imagined it would be and it was fun and engaging and the topic was interesting. A mix of alien intelligence with thriller elements, makes it overall a good read.""What a epic journey this book takes you on. Author Arthur C. Clarke uses such great writing to teleport you to a new place as you read the pages of this book. Great settings and memorable characters will have you fully absorbed in this book and not wanting to put it down. This is a great book for anyone that enjoys science fiction. Highly recommend. "
- "Intriguing premise but kinda boring. Set in the 2130s, the story involves an alien starship enters the Solar System. The story is told from the point of view of a group of human explorers who intercept the ship in an attempt to unlock its mysteries. I first read this back in high school a longtime ago. Rendezvous With Rama is the best and worst of classic pulp science fiction. The science and world building stuff was good and the plot is interesting, it raises some good philosophical questions. But the dialogue was so basic, and the characters are shallow and wooden. If you can get past that, it's a great book. If you can't, most science fiction is maybe not for you."
