The fourth entry in the 2001 series features the return of Frank Poole, the astronaut apparently killed off by HAL, the sinister computer mind of the Jupiter-bound spaceship Discovery in the original book and movie. As the prescient tale unfolds, reader John Glover adds a palpable sense of wonder. He reads with deliberate emphasis and is exceedingly effective in presenting a solar system nearly a thousand years more advanced than Poole's own. Every detail seems to invoke a sort of subdued amazement in Glover's voice, enhanced by the well-selected classical music that occasionally punctuates the text.
