My only real issue with this book is the disjointed feel of some of the stories. I liked the idea that the robots were slowly learning how to be more human, but I kind of wish the stories felt more connected than they did. They were obviously related, but not perfectly lined up, and it just caused me problems. But, it is still Asimov and I still enjoyed his writing.
