Garden of Rama

The Garden of Rama - Arthur C. Clarke, Gentry Lee If RENDEZVOUS WITH RAMA was an episode of star trek, complete with dashing American captain and multiethnic crew, all phds and astrophysicists, and RAMA II was the inevitable written for money followup, GARDEN OF RAMA was the third time charm, the boozy socially complex teardown of all those way too cheerful self-portraits. Rape, social injustice, decadence... Wow, somebody went to a few late 80s parties.

4/5 social commentary and complexity if totally different in tone from Rendezvous
