Voices from the Sky is a collection of non-fiction pieces from the master of science fiction, Arthur C. Clarke. What’s perhaps most interesting about them is that they’re actually a bunch of disparate little essays that were originally published all over the place but which have been corralled into some sort of order for paperback publication.

As a book, I guess it was okay, but it was a definite bedtime book. Even though I consider myself to be reasonably well-versed when it comes to science, there was still quite a lot of stuff here that went over my head, although it wasn’t like reading A Brief History of Time.

I still enjoyed reading it, but I wouldn’t have wanted to have it as my main read because I would have got bored of it pretty quickly. As something that I dipped in and out of, though, it was pretty good. It definitely had a lot of food for thought, although it’s hard to tell how much of the science is still considered relevant today.

It’s one that’s probably better suited for Clarke completionists.
