Trapped on the enormous spaceship Rama III as it hurtles through interstellar space, a group of humans struggles for survival in what has become a hostile and violent environment. A small group of humans flees into the labyrinthine bowels of the ship, where they become trapped in the domain of the octospiders-technologically advanced beings that may be friend or foe. Written by Clarke's longtime collaborator Gentry Lee, Rama Revealed marks the climax of the compelling Rama series-in which humans finally encounter the advanced alien intelligences behind the vast and mysterious spaceships, and come to understand their true agenda.… (més)

Todo comenzó con Cita con Rama, de Arthur C. Clarke, el maestro de la moderna ciencia ficción. Ahora, tras Rama II y El Jardín de Rama, el ciclo llega por fín a su dramático desenlace. Años después de la aparición en el sistema solar de las misteriosas naves Rama, una tercera nave espacial dotada de un hábitat terrestre casi perfecto arribó a la órbita de Marte para convertirse en el hogar de dos mil colonos humanos. Aunque bautizada originalmente como Nuevo Edén, esa colonia interestelar fue degenerando con el tiempo y se ha convertido en una brutal dictadura que asesina a sus pacíficos vecinos y aterroriza a sus propios habitantes. En ese clima de crimen y persecución, Nicole Wakefield, condenada a muerte por traición, logra escapar y atravesar el Mar Cilíndrico hasta llegar a una isla de enormes rascacielos que los humanos llaman Nueva York. Allí le esperan sus amigos y también sus familiares. Pero la persecución no ha concluido. En realidad, no ha hecho más que empezar.

In my opinion, this was by far the best of the sequels.

They start by doing exactly what I wanted out of the middle two books: getting away from the human settlement and into a situation where they are learning and experiencing something strange. In this case, they go to live among the octospiders, an intelligent civilization highly skilled in genetics and biological science who are completely deaf and only speak in color. It's a fascinating and nicely thought out situation and I did like it.

Even when, halfway through the book, the focus shifts back partially to the rest of the human colony in Rama, it still maintains a tight focus, with the bigger scale events going on behind the scenes. There was still a particular feel of exploring how different societies deal with issues (such as war: the octospiders view all war as terrible, not just certain kinds).

The final section, when the return to another Node felt a little strange. Either because it was rushed or because it felt sort of artificial. I didn't particularly mind though, since it still was working out echoes of events from all of the previous books and acted as a sufficient capstone to the series. I did think it was nice that Michael and Simone make another appearance, even if the latter replied her mother's odd fixation with a two person continuation of the species.

At the very end, the book veers somewhat towards a philosophical / religions tangent, which felt a little odd (the Ramas are essentially God) but still thought provoking.

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by this book. If you made it through the middle two books, you should probably read this one as well. ( )

So, four years after my first attempt, I've finally finished the Rama series. This book, the fourth and final one in the quadrilogy, is not the worst of the batch. But then being better than the unmitigated drivel that was [b:The Garden of Rama|112518|The Garden of Rama (Rama, #3)|Arthur C. Clarke|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1171659410s/112518.jpg|876293] is not a particularly trying task.

Despite my misgivings that all the important things about Rama had been "revealed" in this book's predecessor, we do in fact find out who created Rama and its related infrastructure, and why. It's an answer that I feel should be powerful and thought provoking, but it's thrown out there by an unreliable figure, and then confirmed later by someone more reliable who also admits he might be wrong. Certainly, the answer seems like an attempt to make the series seem more profound, but instead serves to trivialise life, religion, and our Universe as a whole frankly.

The philosophical antics only arrive at the very end of the book, though. For the most part it's a dummy's guide to the biology and culture of the octospiders from [b:Rama II|10612691|Rama II (Rama, #2)|Arthur C. Clarke|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1298827472s/10612691.jpg|1907786]. This in itself is mildly interesting but doesn't really warrant the four hundred pages that it takes up. After that there's a lot of complaints about being old and then the last philosophical twenty pages. The last section just saves the book but I still wouldn't readily recommend it. ( )

I thought the final installment in the Rama series was an improvement over the previous. If you can make it through "The Garden of Rama" then you will be treated with more science fiction as we meet alien species. It veers into an interesting social commentary when comparing the actions and behaviors of those species when compared to humans. Overall, it is a worthwhile end to the timeline - not altogether unpredictable, but a good story nonetheless. ( )

Only readers who are genuinely curious about the nature of the Rama enterprise and the mysterious intelligences behind it will find reason to struggle through this inert narrative.
