Elijah Baley has been dead for a long time. His son Bentley also long dead , had joined the settler space colonists and built a home on the planet of Baleyworld. Han Fastolffe has also passed on, leaving only Gladia to ponder Solaria's recent abandonment. At least she still has Daneel and Giskard in her "employ". Just when she gets ready for another small 'eternity' of boredom, Gladia meets D. Baley, one of Elijah's descendants.
Despite her initial misgivings, she agrees to accompany him to Solaria to investigate the mysterious destruction of two settler space ships. Given Solaria's abandonment, such a thing shouldn't be possible after all, right? Little does she know, that all this is just the beginning of a whole slew of political conflicts. Luckily for her, Daneel and Giskard are way ahead of the situation I finished The Robot series. The good news is that almost all my questions about the Foundation Universe's history have now been answered.
The fate of Solaria and Baleyworld, as described in Foundation and Earth , make a lot of sense. Seeing Giskard figure out the very basics of Phsychohistory made for a very interesting read as well. The bad news however, is that I'm starting to like Isaac Asimov less as a writer. I even moved him lower on my favorite authors' list. To be clear, it's strictly his writing style that bothers me, as it reads more like a scientific treaty than a sci-fi novel.
Some might argue, that this is part of Asimov's appeal: Unfortunately, I am one of those superficial readers who wants to read a novel, rather than the "Beginner's Guide to Psychohistory". Bottom line, from a purely scientifical point of view it is a brilliant book.
It's also an extremely satisfying read, for those who've been left wondering at the end of the Foundation series. Still, the writing style is not particularly easy to follow. There are way too many passages taken up by lengthy expositions on human vs robotic thought patterns.
They're indeed very interesting, and worth leaving in, but 3 phrases instead of would've made for a much more entertaining read.
I, Robot review of book 0. The Rest of the Robots review of book 1: The Caves of Steel review of book 2: The Naked Sun review of book 3: The Robots of Dawn Poi anche lui tese la mano. Le punte delle dita si sfiorarono, poi i due robot si strinsero la mano Una tutta d'un pezzo, insomma. Ma come mi commuovo, se coinvolta davvero! Tipo adesso, che mi sembra di crollare.
Davvero, non saprei come altro definirli. Davvero, dovrei smetterla, tanto non riesco a cavarne niente di utile per chi li legge. Concludo, ancora una volta, con una dichiarazione d'amore. Science Fiction Fans. Having grown up in the cold war era, ducking under desks in preparation for nuclear destruction from the USSR, I developed a bit of antipathy towards Russians so even though I was an ardent science fiction fan I refused to read Isaac Asimov on the principle that he was Russian even though all my science fiction loving friends were crazy in love with Asimov fiction.
One day, reluctantly, I picked up Foundation. One third of the way through the novel I was becoming extremely upset because I could Having grown up in the cold war era, ducking under desks in preparation for nuclear destruction from the USSR, I developed a bit of antipathy towards Russians so even though I was an ardent science fiction fan I refused to read Isaac Asimov on the principle that he was Russian even though all my science fiction loving friends were crazy in love with Asimov fiction.
One third of the way through the novel I was becoming extremely upset because I could very easily see that there was no satisfactory way out of the dilemmas he had developed to that point in the novel.
When he pulled it off magically, mystically, unexpectedly and expertly I was astonished and became Asimov's biggest fan, reading everything I could find that he had written. At that time Robots and Empire had not yet been written and I struggled through the years waiting patiently as he combined his Empire, Foundation, and Robot series.
Now, many years later I'm re-reading the novels in the 'recommended' order and have now finished his Elijah Baley — Daneel Olivaw novels. This one is more suspense adventure rather than mystery like the earlier novels although it is written somewhat like a mystery novel. On re-reading this one I'm of the impression that he ran up against a hard deadline as he concludes the novel suddenly yet satisfactorily but without really fleshing out all the threads of the plot lines.
Still, there's no such thing as a bad Asimov story or novel and such is the case with this novel. Even vaguely remembering the details of the novel I still clung to it like a teenager again staying up long past bedtime to devour just a little bit more, just a little bit more It's a fun read. Enjoy it. Jan 30, Mars rated it liked it. Out of all the Foundation-and-related books, this one is definitely in line for being declared the weakest. We find out how things happened, but what would have been brilliant as pages of exposition was stretched out to hundreds of pages of endless flashbacks, somewhat dull dialogue, and at least 70 repetitions of the words "nuclear intensifier".
Especially annoying highlights: Vasilia made Giskard into what he is. All fine and good, but one of the characters even mentions that this is extremel Out of all the Foundation-and-related books, this one is definitely in line for being declared the weakest.
All fine and good, but one of the characters even mentions that this is extremely unlikely to have happened, no practical explanation is ever given, and the entire setup feels badly built and seems to exist only for the sole purpose of explaining how this information became known to certain other parties.
One would think that easier approaches could have been made. Yes, we get it, there's no need to hammer it home. The modern reader is bored by constant repetition of the same thing, especially when it serves no meaningful purpose.
The first law which gets violated left and right, especially given how any violation of it should have put Daneel and company into permanent brain freeze immediately. Giskard endlessly complains of how using his powers is dangerous and must be done with extreme care, yet apparently keeps doing it on the fly to everyone he meets. What the end of the book sounds like: Soon, however, you shall have this power. Any moment now, I will give it to you, but not yet.
I am looking forward to providing you with it very much. Generally, I'd recommend you skip it and read something else out of Asimov's works.
Apr 19, Leonardo rated it really liked it Shelves: Really enjoyed this one. Although Bailey is not present, Gladia, Daneel and Giskard prove to be excellent protagonists. This novel can clearly be seen as a bridge to his other novels. I'm reading Asimov in a semi chronological order and this novel clearly propels the next step in the history of his universe, showing what triggers the formation of the galactic empire. One peculiar thing I found was how the focus of the novel changed from Gladia to the robots.
It seems to me to be premeditated, vi Really enjoyed this one. It seems to me to be premeditated, view spoiler [showing bit by bit how Giskard was actually running things and Gladia was, a lot of times, maneuvered as to enable him to fulfill his mission. The only negative thing about it was that some scenes overstayed their welcome. This is the longest Asimov novel I read so far, so maybe that's the cause, but I feel some scenes would be better trimmed down. Great read, overall.
Sep 22, David rated it it was ok Shelves: Not my favorite. Certainly not the best of the Robot series. Large amounts of this could be excised and nothing would be lost. But I suppose we had to bridge the gap between the Robot books and the Empire books somehow.

Isaac Asimov Robots And Empire
Men create robots supermen? For the "common good" of the mankind, of course. Allegedly we the survivors after the robots-induced nuclear Holocaust must build a Galactic Empire under the guidance of the same robots. I hate it. Oct 28, Maxi Bolongaita rated it it was amazing. This book was SO good and the best part was that I read the s edition paperback and I had the best time ever. May 09, Mickey Robbins rated it it was amazing. Friends never say goodbye The events that lead to the current predicament of humanity in the Robot series beginning from I, Robot through Robots and Empire leaves the reader with a bitter sweet sense of success.
Humanity has still not overcome its dread of robots but they can lust after them if designed to look as humans. The sarcasm is lost to all humans even if it stands before them all the time. The humans from all over the galaxy are broken into two fragments or Tribes , Settlers and Spacers.
The Earth people are not considered as a tribe but more as a Holy Land or a land of disease ridden self-rejects. The spacers look at earth and the earth worshiping settlers as propagators if the earthly philosophy of No-Robots and advocacy of short life. They curse and blame them the settlers as a plague or mutation that threatens the existence of the much more superior form of life beings as themselves. Yet they fail to notice or more like deny to notice the issues long life and rejection of Earth has brought upon them.
The element of mystery as in all the Robot novels is thin and feels as expected - as not much of an issue.
There are no murders here but there is a pretext of a missing colony that drives the story onward. The human characters very quickly dwindle into the background as the reader realises that they are far away from the truth. Even if they wished to look for it, they would not be able to because of all the other stuff they find more interesting - like the prospect of interstellar fame, better the other clan, etc.. It is inevitable that the final task of finding out the mystery and eventually determining the fate of humans as a whole rests on the cold shoulders of two robots Giskard and Daneel.
Asimov sama shows us here a glimpse at what could hold for us in the foundation series in the interactions and abstractions the two robots draw as a unit. Their conversations stand out through out the book as the most interesting and spell binding. They go on to tackle the superhuman task of defining and protecting humanity. The finale of the Robot series is apt and sound. The Robots Series is: I, Robot 2.
The rest of the Robots 3. The complete Robot 4. The Caves of Steel 5. The Naked Sun 6. The Dawn of Robots 7. Robots and Empire Jan 19, Joe rated it really liked it Shelves: This is the last of Asimov's Robot books and one I really enjoyed and has made me want to read even more by him.
The story continues the greater plot started, very lightly, in Caves Of Steel and brings in little mentions of several of the short stories as well. I didn't expect any of the short stories to make an appearance as I always thought they were just ideas about the same basic universe of robots and humans.
It's more than that and discovering it made me smile. This is the book that ultimately ties together most of Dr. Asimov's fictional stories in one tremendous overarching scenario. As such, the emphasis is on world creating. Or perhaps world combining might be a better phrase. As in many Asimov stories, the official story itself is of less importance than his theme.
In this one, the story is of course, still good but while the humans go about their business that makes up the story, the real story is that told through the robots Giskard and Daneel as This is the book that ultimately ties together most of Dr.
In this one, the story is of course, still good but while the humans go about their business that makes up the story, the real story is that told through the robots Giskard and Daneel as well as Elijah, the sole human who has really important things to say for the overall series.
That is only fair, with Elijah being one of the most well developed characters Asimov has in his series. Giskard's origins are explained and between Giskard and Daneel there is a long hashing out over the course of the story of the Zeroth law of robotics.
The Robots of Dawn
As a side note, it is nice that the two robots can finally acknowledge a friendship and caring for each other after all these centuries. Asimov's theme is that the good of humanity as a whole is the ultimate good, that it is of more importance than the first law of robotics, that robots must protect a human over anything else.
I am not in complete agreement with this theme, and I wonder if the Good Doctor would be himself if he were still alive to see the mess we humans have made with climate change. Although there is his Gaia creation In any case, he makes an excellent case of it for his various series.
This is recommended for someone who has read other titles of the various series involved, at least the original Foundation series and "I, Robot". It would not be a satisfactory introduction to Asimov's fiction since much of the story depends on prior titles.
The fourth and final book in Isaac Asimov's beloved robot series, "Robots and Empire" takes place many years after the death of Elijah Bailey, who has become somewhat of a galactic folk hero for his efforts in space exploration and colonization of planets far beyond the Terran solar system. His robot friend, Daneel Olivaw, lives on and strives to carry on the good work started by his human friend. With the help of a telepathic robot named Giskard, Olivaw struggles with the turbulent political la The fourth and final book in Isaac Asimov's beloved robot series, "Robots and Empire" takes place many years after the death of Elijah Bailey, who has become somewhat of a galactic folk hero for his efforts in space exploration and colonization of planets far beyond the Terran solar system.
With the help of a telepathic robot named Giskard, Olivaw struggles with the turbulent political landscape of a galaxy torn between isolationist Spacers humans who have lived off-Earth for centuries and feel that primitive Earthlings have no right to invade and infect the galaxy and explorationist Earthlings, who dream of a universe full of terraformed habitable worlds.
When an ancient enemy of Bailey resurfaces, threatening to destroy everything that the Earthlings have accomplished, Olivaw and Giskard are forced to re-consider the constraints of the Three Laws of Robotics.
If you're an Asimov fan, you know what those are. As always, Asimov wonderfully combines mystery, suspense and thought-provoking science fiction within a fun story. If you've never read Asimov, start with the first in this series and read them in order.
Then read his wonderful "Foundation" series, which takes place hundreds of thousands of centuries in the future. You'll be pleasantly surprised to see the connections Asimov makes between the two series.

Isaac Asimov was a Russian-born, American author, a professor of biochemistry, and a highly successful writer, best known for his works of science fiction and for his popular science books.

He has works published in nine o Isaac Asimov was a Russian-born, American author, a professor of biochemistry, and a highly successful writer, best known for his works of science fiction and for his popular science books.
He has works published in nine of the ten major categories of the Dewey Decimal System lacking only an entry in the s category of Philosophy. Asimov is widely considered a master of the science-fiction genre and, along with Robert A. Heinlein and Arthur C.
Clarke, was considered one of the "Big Three" science-fiction writers during his lifetime. Asimov's most famous work is the Foundation Series; his other major series are the Galactic Empire series and the Robot series, both of which he later tied into the same fictional universe as the Foundation Series to create a unified "future history" for his stories much like those pioneered by Robert A.
Heinlein and previously produced by Cordwainer Smith and Poul Anderson. He penned numerous short stories, among them "Nightfall", which in was voted by the Science Fiction Writers of America the best short science fiction story of all time, a title many still honor. He also wrote mysteries and fantasy, as well as a great amount of nonfiction.
Asimov wrote the Lucky Starr series of juvenile science-fiction novels using the pen name Paul French. Most of Asimov's popularized science books explain scientific concepts in a historical way, going as far back as possible to a time when the science in question was at its simplest stage.
He often provides nationalities, birth dates, and death dates for the scientists he mentions, as well as etymologies and pronunciation guides for technical terms. Asimov was a long-time member and Vice President of Mensa International, albeit reluctantly; he described some members of that organization as "brain-proud and aggressive about their IQs" He took more joy in being president of the American Humanist Association.
