It is time to nominate the Group Read for November 2018. As per the schedule, we would be reading a book from the Young Adult and Science Fiction genre next month. Thank you all who participated in the previous group reads. Get your nominations in for our next pick.

A few pointers

. Nominations belonging to the Young Adult and Science Fiction genre would be the only ones considered.

. The nominated book must be available in the Reading Room.

. Please include a blurb about the book you nominate. Every nomination must include the link to the book in the Reading Room.

. You can only nominate one book from the genre of the month. Multiple nominations will not be considered.

. You can second a book nominated by another member.

. Do not nominate a book from the middle of a series, unless it can be read standalone.

. Be kind enough to nominate the correct title

Hi

I would like to nominate Rendezvous with Rama By Arthur C. Clarke. A brief summary of the same is as below



At first, only a few things are known about the celestial object that astronomers dub Rama. It is huge, weighing more than ten trillion tons. And it is hurtling through the solar system at an inconceivable speed. Then a space probe confirms the unthinkable: Rama is no natural object. It is, incredibly, an interstellar spacecraft. Space explorers and planet-bound scientists alike prepare for mankind's first encounter with alien intelligence. It will kindle their wildest dreams... and fan their darkest fears. For no one knows who the Ramans are or why they have come. And now the moment of rendezvous awaits — just behind a Raman airlock door.

It can be accessed here at forum:

I Know its a series but it was not planned as a series and other books were written after first one proved successful and it can be read as a standalone book too. @cynic Pls let me know if this can be considered else would have to figure out something else.

yes it can be..because other books in the series are not per say a continuation of the first book but they take the story forward many years after the events in first book

Guess we can go ahead with that.... It should be fun to revisit Rama after almost 20 yrs for me...
I actually confused it with the other series by Arthur C Clarke, space odyssey.
Sorry for that
