it was amazing
Read from July 07 to 10, 2011

Elijah Baley and Robot Daneel Olivaw are main characters as in The Caves of Steel and The Naked Sun. Gladia Delmarre, who Baley meets on Solaria in The Naked Sun, also reappears, and Baley and Daneel are assisted by a second robot. Han Fastolfe, an expert roboticist and politician from the planet Aurora, comes under suspicion of deliberately burning out a robot, and drags Baley in to try to clear him and save his political standing. The circumstances put Baley's own career and Earth's role in the settling of the galaxy on the line as well. So Baley again has to solve a mystery working in a completely foreign culture, different from both Earth and Solaria. Despite some issues with the technobabble here and there, I found the story just as suspenseful as the earlier ones and with a level of cultural exploration somewhere above the average book.
