Dave Draper posts on 12/29/2009 5:03:05 PM Songs Of Distant Earth seems to be somewhat maligned here. Whilst not Hard SF as such it is most certainly an enchanting tale written in a very easy style with a lot of human interest and a very sad, wistful ending, beautifully composed. It is the perfect introduction to Arthur C. Clarke, or an excellent read for those more familiar with him. He has produced many, many fine novels which can be read and read again and this certainly deserves it's place among them.

posts on 7/27/2006 8:34:08 AM Does anyone know how Mr. Clarke came up with the name Karellen? I tried to find out through a friend of a friend who has worked with Arthur Clarke, but the message came back that Mr. Clarke couldn't remember writing the book, much less the origins of characters names.
James posts on 2/23/2006 7:19:50 AM Hi! It seems that this book is really great and I'm looking forward to buy it. But before I'll buy it can somebody give me a summary of this book? I'm looking forward for answers. mfg James

Ali Arikan posts on 7/15/2005 6:39:33 AM I have just finished reading the novel ''Songs of Distant Earth'' and have one lingering albeit most probably inconsequential query. Towards the end of the book, Kandor gives Mirissa a little bell like box which contains one single tooth, supposedly ''the last remains of the one person on earth who founded a faith that was totally unmarred by violence'' (paraphrased). Is this supposed to be Sıdharta (sp?)? An explanation will go a long way. The book itself is mediocre yet the actual idea is quite interesting. As with quite a few latter day Clarke books, great concept yet underwhelming execution.
