Men had built cities before, but never such a city as Diaspar; for millennia its protective dome shutout the creeping decay and danger of the world outside. Once, it held powers that rules the stars. But then, as legend had it, The invaders came, driving humanity into this last refuge. It takes one man, A Unique to break through Diaspar's stifling inertia, to smash the legend and discover the true nature of the Invaders.

Recenzii de la cititorii Books Express


Victor Tanasa a dat nota:

The City and the Stars is a classic 50's Sci-Fi novel, with a very interesting premise - the last humans on Earth have isolated themselves in a great city and are afraid of leaving it. The book tackles many themes and ideas, has a likeable if not very developed main character and is surprisingly not dated. Clarke's clear and concise language was like a breath of fresh air. The pace slackens a bit in the middle but overall it was a great read.
