Not one of Clarke's best

Of the 7 novel sby Arthur C. Clarke I have read/heard so far this is the least compelling to me. Unfortunately the reader does a poor job too compared to the other readers. The references to the Buddha and his ideas are embarrassing and one really can tell the 1950s style. The language is much too flowery, the characters and not credible and the story is not the greatest. Compared to Childhood's End it is a disappointment. But you can't get it right every time! I'll try the next one by this great author.
