The sequels are also vintage Clarke, and excellent to read. If you liked the first novel, you'll like the whole series.

Getting back to Rendezvous with Rama (spoiler alert, skip 7 lines ...) ....

An alien object full of wonderful alien things and totally alien lifeforms crosses our solar system, we rush there to study, meet, understand ... And the alien thing just passes by, minding its own business, never even taking notice of our presence.

I find the idea alone an absolute work of genius. Mesmerizing, disturbing, I am at a loss for words. What a writer!

... and also, don't forget... the Ramans do everything in threes.
