Re-reading Arthur C. Clarke: Hammer of God

It’s summer 2021.

Arthur C. Clarke: Jumalan moukari
(engl. ‘Hammer of God’ – 1993)

I just finished reading Arthur C. Clarke novel “Hammer of God“. Absolutely love it! This is the second time for me. Clarke writes in such a fascinating way.

I hate long dialogue, and in general, very thick books. Hammer of God is neither.

Clarke’s signature style is also about the theories and science applied in the books’ very soul. Take a scene from Hammer of God, where the effects of an ion propulsion thruster on the asteroid’s surface are analyzed and presented in detail. I enjoy reading and visualizing in my mind all the things Clarke concocts.

Hammer of God is about fate, civilization, humanity, intelligence and a bit of adventure. Highly recommended!

Me: a code enthusiasta, technology optimist, but also a realist. In my blog something like 80% of the articles are technology related - mostly in English and Finnish. I like to envision and ponder about things, how life could be, what we are doing wrong today, and so on. "Invented" a facebook -like system in 2000, as a short product pamphlet. Haven't yet realized the 20+ ideas that might have become big things. Maybe learning this skill one of these days!
