This was my first ever Clarke story, read sometime last year, I believe. I came away very impressed, enjoyed it a great deal. I found the entire story to be engaging and thought the end was fantastic. I’ve read a few more Clarke short stories since then, and they were good, but it will be hard to beat this one just because it was my first exposure.

This was a great story. I have read several short stories by Arthur C. Clarke, and this one (the last one I read) has become my favorite. There was just something cool about the aliens and the way they were truly trying to help others. A very good read indeed!
