Publisher Description

Clarke's masterful evocation of the far future of humanity, considered his finest novel

Men had built cities before, but never such a city as Diaspar. For millennia its protective dome shut out the creeping decay and danger of the world outside. Once, it held powers that rule the stars.

But then, as legend has it, the invaders came, driving humanity into this last refuge. It takes one man, a Unique, to break through Diaspar's stifling inertia, to smash the legend and discover the true nature of the Invaders.

DrumEverything ,

Great read.

An inspiring and very different perspective of mankind written very successfully in an intricate expression of a thick imagination. It hints of epic tales of the past and philosophises on the possible future. Typical and well composed 'Clarke'.

Awe inspiring

In this book, Clarke expands your imaginative horizons regarding humanity's future beyond hundreds or thousands of years to hundreds of millions, forcing into your mind's eye an almost terrifying scope of vision. A huge inspiration to me, this book led not only to a personal passion for writing, but also a permenantly changed perspective on the world. Utterly spectacular.
