The Last Theorem

Genre: Sci-fi and Fantasy, Fiction; Author: Arthur C. Clarke, Frederik Pohl; Publisher: Del Rey

In Arthur C. Clarke and Frederik Pohl’s The Last Theorem, a math prodigy solves a centuries-old problem and comes to the attention of a shadowy U.N. agency — even as an alien fleet heads to Earth.

Movie Pitch
Equal parts Good Will Hunting, Men in Black, and War of the Worlds.

Bottom Line
Uneven pacing and tone mar an intriguing cautionary tale. This collaboration, completed before Clarke’s death last March, would’ve made a better solo project for either author. B
