  • An enormous cylindrical object has entered Earth's solar system on a collision course with the sun. A team of astronauts are sent to explore the mysterious craft, which the denizens of the solar system name Rama. What they find is astonishing evidence of a civilization far more advanced than ours. They find an interior stretching over fifty kilometers; a forbidding cylindrical sea; mysterious and inaccessible buildings; and strange machine-animal hybrids, or "biots," that inhabit the ship. But what they don't find is an alien presence. So who—and where—are the Ramans?

Astronauts explore an alien spacecraft hurtling toward the sun in this Hugo and Nebula Award–winning novel—"a stone-cold classic" of hard sci-fi (The Guardian).

An enormous cylindrical object has entered Earth's solar system on a collision course with the sun. A team of astronauts are sent to explore the mysterious craft, which the denizens of the solar system name Rama. What they find is astonishing evidence of a civilization far more advanced than ours. They find an interior stretching over fifty kilometers; a forbidding cylindrical sea; mysterious and inaccessible buildings; and strange machine-animal hybrids, or "biots," that inhabit the ship. But what they don't find is an alien presence. So who—and where—are the Ramans?

Often listed as one of Clarke's finest novels, Rendezvous with Rama won numerous awards, including the Hugo, the Nebula, the Jupiter, and the British Science Fiction Awards. A fast-paced and compelling story of an enigmatic encounter with alien technology, Rendezvous with Rama offers both answers and unsolved mysteries that will continue to fascinate readers for generations.

"Mr. Clarke is splendid . . . We experience that chilling touch of the alien, the not-quite-knowable, that distinguishes SF at its most technically imaginative." —The New York Times

One of the few great sci-fi series of books that haven't been exploited yet by Hollywood. One of my top 5 favs.

Actually a movie is being scheduled for this. I came to see if I could use prime shipping credits. Can't. Will just read from the library (been ages).

This book is awesome. I listened to it a while back, and I've been wanting to read the sequels. Unfortunately, they are not available on Audible. Book 3, The Garden of Rama also appears to be $1.99:

It's letting me apply slow shipping promotional credits also, showing as $0.00 for me. Bought.

The last book I bought though, it was weird. I had around $9 in credits, but it only displayed 1.50 in credits on the 'buy with 1 click' button. When I clicked 'buy for others', it correctly reflected my credits. I used the 'buy for others' to buy it, and entered my email address. Added a couple extra clicks to the process, had to go to my email to accept the gift. Never happened before, after a couple dozen book purchases. You might want to check this.

I read this back in 1973 for Extra credit points for High School literature class -- absolutely great novel -- especially the ending - probably one of the TOP 5 sci-fi books I have ever read to date ...

I didn't remember ever using the "Buy for others" option. That worked. Thanks for the great piece of info

Definitely a great book. Have to disappoint you about Hollywood, though: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0134933/
