In the sequel to the multi-award winning sci-fi novel Rama, a second Raman spaceship enters our solar system and "offers one surprise after another" (The New York Times).   Years ago, the enormous, enigmatic alien spacecraft Rama sailed through our solar system as mind-boggling proof that life existed--or had existed--elsewhere in the universe. Now, at the dawn of the twenty-third century, another ship is discovered hurtling toward us.   A crew of Earth's best and brightest minds is assembled to rendezvous with the massive vessel. They are armed with everything we know about Raman technology and culture. But nothing can prepare them for what they are about to encounter on board Rama II: cosmic secrets that are startling, sensational--and perhaps even deadly.   "A masterpiece . . . one of the year's best hard SF epics." --The Houston Post… (mais)

Ah, now I remember this book. Contrary to what I said in my review of [b:Rendezvous with Rama|1930977|Rendezvous with Rama|Arthur C. Clarke|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1288718658s/1930977.jpg|1882772] I now recall that four years ago I actually read the first three books in this quadrilogy, not just the first two. This book is frightfully dull but not quite bad enough to warrant quitting the series.

One of the good things about this book's predecessor is how quickly it gets into the action. The cosmonauts are inside Rama within about ten pages. Here we get a hundred pages of inept character development before they finally reach the spacecraft. All of Gentry Lee's characters are one-dimensional stereotypes of fictional characters. Each of them has to be horrible or lovely, with their actions being over the top so we can't get the two groups muddled. Every other character was abused as a child and that's used either as an excuse for them growing up to be an immoral charlatan or as proof that they have lots of moral fortitude.

The book doesn't really add anything to its predecessor, I guess you have to read its two sequels for that. But since [b:The Garden of Rama|112518|The Garden of Rama (Rama, #3)|Arthur C. Clarke|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1171659410s/112518.jpg|876293] was bad enough to lead me to stop reading the series three quarters of the way through, I'm not sure it's an experience that I'm going to enjoy.

Not as strong as the first novel in this series... too much melodrama between cardboard characters. ( )

If you liked Rendezvous with Rama, skip this unless you're the world's biggest fan of Gentry Lee. An almost completely unrelated book, this is filled with third-grade soap opera and constant, petty digressions from Clarke's fascinating ideas.

Clarke is not the world's greatest writer and the first Rama book was stilted and nerdy, but it was also ripe with enthusiasm and seriously awe-inspiring ideas. The addition of B-movie drama here doesn't deepen, humanize, or in any way improve Rama; it just cheapens it. ( )

One of the best SF books that I read this year. Clarke, with Lee's input, writes a well rounded story. His early works were good but this is one of his best. It really provides a mix of hard SF and interesting characters.

My criteria for rating a book has much to do with holding my attention. For this book I always wanted to get back to it until the end. Is it a perfect book? No, the ending is a little weak and unfinished. There were missed opportunities for some bad characters to be discovered for whom they were.

This sequel to "Rendezvous With Rama", gives us more clues about the alien ships that are passing near our Sun. Great read. ( )

The great radar pulse generator Excalibur, powered by nuclear explosions, had been out of service for almost half a century. It had been designed and developed in the frantic effort during the months following the transit of Rama through the solar system.
