Ipak knjiga daje dosta odgovora ne mnoga pitanja iz prethodnih delova u nekom smislu kraj je takav da je na citaocu da razmisli sta je moguce, mada licno nisam fan takvih krajeva. I would have had the monolith trip into some secondary killbot protocol where it idyssey finished off the human race old school style, with a violent bloodbath, but that’s just me ; Except Poole’s high school which still survives!


But Frank Poole, that’s a horse of a different color. As Frank adjusts to his life in this new world it would seem that the monolith is become th again. Chandra and the Russian crew of the Leonov are also long gone.
