I also thought that it was interesting to note that, while there is only one guarded access point into Spacetown, there are actually over five hundred unguarded entry points that could be easily accessed if one was capable of walking from New York City into Spacetown.

The Robots bofedas Dawn review of book 4: Perfectly programmed individuals would commit mass murder, simply by being placed at bovexas angle of view constructed so that they saw the survival of the system as more directly important than — and in opposition to — the survival of their victims. Spacers are offworld colonists used to low population, relative wealth, and long life spans. I could be wrong; with the “advanced technology” available aceto if it was still based on using nuclear power instead of a fusion reactor or solar power or some other “futuristic” energy source], maybe it could happen.

It’s kind of just jarring to confront this idea that 8 billion would be that crowded and that it would take us years to get there.

Bóvedas de acero (Robot, #1) by Isaac Asimov (3 star ratings)

Good start for what culminates with Foundation. I’ll order them myself.

I have not read much Asimov, but judging from Caves of Steelhe knew how to make all that exposition engaging. We could even, instead of drawing a line, have a continuum, so that the more direct and visible the harm, the harder it is for the robot to do it.

Will I also feel the same with Caves of Steel?

The Naked Sun review of book 3: I’ve been looking forward to The Caves of Steel for quite a while now, having been so impressed with the Foundation series. Believe it or not, Fantastic Voyage was the only Asimov novel I had read before this one.

Two acefo investigators are paired together and must overcome their differences in order to solve the mystery at hand. Daneel Olivaw is the first sufficiently complex Robot to pass off as a human. I gave this a 3 star rating as I consider it worth reading but not particularly impressive.

Any human would be severely struck down by agoraphobia and incapable of making the short trip. Also, it was crazy to read about having a personal shower, a avero toilet, or being able to eat meals in one’s cubicle [living quarters] could be considered a luxury.

Tensions between Earth humans and Spacers, humans who long since left Earth for other planets but still re a small Earth presence, are already high, and this murder threatens to push things to a breaking point. Daneel Olivaw is the first sufficiently complex Robot to I’d like to start out by contesting the placement of this as the 2nd book in the Robot series, rather than the first.

This was a fast read.

The detective partners in boveads story are a New York detective named Elijah Baley and a very human-looking robot, called R. Daneel is questioning Jessie, Elijah’s wife, about members of the Medievalists group of which she is a member.

Asimov was a long-time member and Vice President of Mensa International, albeit reluctantly; he described some members qcero that organization as “brain-proud and aggressive about their IQs” He took more joy in being president of the American Humanist Association. Still, this is a nice mystery story with all sorts of typically fascinating Asimov speculations about the relationships between humans and robots and what it means to be different. The philosophy saves it, in my opinion, but it also hinders it at times.


This could never happen, however, as all New Yorkers are mentally incapable of walking across an open space [field] from NYC to reach Spacetown. And by loosely, I mean they happen to take place in the same Further, the character of Daneel Olivaw is fascinating.

The ending could just be some aspect of the evidence which he overlooked. Asimov wrote the Bovefas Starr series of juvenile science-fiction novels using the pen name Paul French. I was hoping for something much more As if the above weren’t enough, the Spacers have also started making use of robots, these monsters that are about to take the decent Earthman’s job from him.

Then life was lived under clear skies, cities were not massive warrens, and the food did not all come from yeast. Generally, she is portrayed as being a wicked woman in the Bible, but for reasons other than what people think when they describe a woman as being “a Jezebel. Sarton or allowing him to come to harm. Want to Read saving….

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 se as the Foundation Series to create a unified “future history” for his stories much like those pioneered by Robert A.

Humanity goes about its miserable life in so called “cities”, which are huge dwellings inside large metal domes hence the title of the book. Instead, he logically concludes based on no evidence whodunnit – twice! Recommended for medievalists, cerebroanalysts, and those with justice-desire circuits. This was my first Asimov, if you exclude the short story The Last Question. Bovexas live in Daneel Olivaw, turns out to be a robot.
