Intelligence It will kindle their wildest dreams and fan their darkest fears For no one knows who the Ramans are or why they have come And now the moment of rendezvous awaits just behind a Raman airlock doo. We the humanity see uite a lot of comets and meteors flying around So in the future fairly distant nobody cared much about yet another such visitor until astronomers realized it had an ideal cylindrical form At this point it did not take a genius to realize its artificial origin Luckily there was a spaceship nearby to catch up with the guest named Rama before it disappears into depths of space This is the story about the ship s crew exploring dead alien derelict and the reaction of the rest of the humans to their findings The real rating is not 5 stars by the way it is only 45 The characters were uite flat and not exactly life like For this reason I understand why some readers did not like the book It is however not about people It is about incomprehensible wonders of alien technology just hasty brief glimpses of itThis sense of wonder present through the whole book and that is the reason for the high rating I can only recall one other science fiction book which has the same sense of alien wonders Roadside Picnic Red s Zone adventures to be exact Arthur C Clark does outstanding job between being descriptive but not overly so His descriptions are brief enough to never become boring yet they always give you good picture of what the explorers see This takes some real skill to accomplish Modern popular writers fall into two extremes when it comes to descriptions non stop absolutely unnecessary long ones George RR Martin or no descriptions whatsoever Steven Erikson My advice to both of these guys read this book and learn Read it one time and learn better Continue reading it until you are able to deliver an excellent tale in under 150 pages So if you are looking for great flawed characters look elsewhere Otherwise the story is really good and highly recommended The common wisdom is that the following books are much weaker Unlike this one they are written in collaboration with Gentry Lee and collaborations rarely work in my opinion Reading the descriptions of the book 2 and its reviews I became convinced that I am not interested to continue the series Fortunately first book works well as a standalone
