Роботите могат да съществуват редом с хората:

Да преразказвам и анализирам ”Стоманените пещери” и “Голото слънце” смисъл няма. И двете са класически творби от зората на най-доброто време на научната фантастика, което май приключи някъде през 90-те, макар че проблясъци безспорно има – “Слепоглед” на Уотс, “Битие” на Брин, “Бъдеще” на Глуховски, “Посланическото градче” на Миевил, “Марсианецът” на Уеър, “Момиче на пружина” на Бачигалупи, “Илион” и “Олимп” на

These stories are amazing science-fiction. I am not a big fan of most science-fiction, but Asimov's goal was to take conventional genres and place them in a sci-fi setting. He also did not believe in fancy, elaborate writing, but instead preferred a concisely descriptive, direct approach. Despite this, his writing style is one of my favorites and will not confuse readers like other sci-fi novels will.

Both novels are detective stories in a futuristic setting, which gives rise to new complications

„Стоманените пещери” ни среща с детектив Илайджа Бейли от Земята, някъде в далечното бъдеще. Земята е разделена на огромни градове, които буквално са изградени под земята, хората почти не излизат на повърхността, хранят се с изкуствено приготвена храна, ползват обществени бани и тоалетни и това да имаш апартамент с три стаи е лукс. Популацията непрекъснато нараства, но някъде в хода на историята земляните са се отказали от космическите пътувания и завладяв

Лесно е да се пише за Айзък Азимов, защото е разпознаваем не само сред феновете на научната фантастика, но и сред всички любители на качествената литература. Той е от малкото гиганти в жанра, който дърпа науката с идеите си и поставя важни въпроси, които не можем да пренебрегнем. На всички са ни известни неговите Три закона на роботиката (преписани дословно от корицата на това издание!):

It's been interesting to re-read this book after 25 years. Originally I read this in the 1970s, when the science was not so out of sync with what the current thought was. Things are so different now, and the science does not necessarily translate, especially with regard to the human genome, which has been mapped now, but in the story line, 3,000 plus years in the future, hasn't been done.

Lije Baley and his partner, R. Daneel Olivaw (R for Robot), stand as good characters still, although the view

I thought both of these stories were excellent. Good mystery involved to keep you guessing, as well as a great sci-fi story.

The most important thing I got out of this book, is that it stresses the complications than can arise in the near future, as robots become more advanced today and take on greater roles within our society. They are great innovations, and can definitely help us, but it's good not to become complacent with our own roles we have in this universe.

It also goes to show that adva

Mix of Sci-fi and detective story, could be partly hard to read for non Sci-fi fans.
Feb 13, 2013 Kathy rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
I really enjoyed these stories. My mother loaned me her copy ( it actually had that weird groovy robot picture on the cover) and it sat on my shelf for 10-15 years (sorry mom!)

It has a 40's or 50's detective novel style to it, but it's set 1000 years in the future - A murder mystery with robots and men, Earth and outer space. The unifying theme is irrational fear and prejudice. This was my first Issac Asimov novel and it won't be my last.

Prime 1950s American science fiction, complete with a pet wife, well-structured society, pipe-smoking caucasian male and happy ending. If you can look past the vanilla screed, you can find Asimov's enjoyable creativity in the presentation of three futuristic societies centering around robots and murder. Neither envelopes nor comfort levels are pushed here - it's simply an extension of glorious post-war American chutzpah.

These were my favorites when I first started reading Asimov. I probably need to stop re-reading Asimov. When did the characters get to be so unlikeable? Especially the women. Wow. Fat housewives and embowered princesses. Dreadful. R. Daneel Olivaw will always be dear to my heart, though. These books get 3 stars and a bonus star for nostalgia.

Good detective/mystery themes with robots, and a tad about colonization as well as redeeming evil.

Two classic mystery robot stories written in the 50's. Entertaining early Asimov.
