The Naked Sun (Robot #2), Isaac Asimov
The Naked Sun is a science fiction novel by American writer Isaac Asimov, the second in his Robot series. Like its predecessor, The Caves of Steel, this is a whodunit story. The book was first published in 1957 after being serialized in Astounding Science Fiction between October and December 1956.
The story arises from the murder of Rikaine Delmarre, a prominent "fetologist" (fetal scientist, responsible for the operation of the planetary birthing center rem

In The Caves of Steel, I was most fascinated by Elijah Baley's world, an Earth with crowded underground cities and a populace used to eating yeast, but terrified of the open sky. The Naked Sun introduces the planet of Solaria, and their culture of isolation. Each human is alone, attended by a fleet of robots, and never comes into personal contact with or even within close proximity to another human. Which is why Baley is imported from Earth to solve a Solarian murder mystery: the murderer had to ...more

It's the purest speculation, but I have a theory that Isaac Asimov may have had an affair with a Swedish woman somewhere around 1955. At that time he was in his mid 30s, and had been married for around 10 years.

The evidence? Well, he wrote two novels in rapid succession, The End of Eternity and The Naked Sun, which, very unusually for the early Asimov, contain sexy female characters that play an important part in the story. Both of them have Swedish-sounding names with romantic associations. Th

Asimov + Science fiction + Thriller. I don't think there's anything better. What can I say. I loved this little bastard. I love Asimov's Robots universe, all the problems it has and this one in particular is completely page turner and interesting. The best main character I have read in an Asimov book and a premise way more entangled than the 5 other novels I have read of him. Just read this beauty, please.


Que buena secuela. Si esas últimas páginas no te hacen querer seguir leyendo a los Robots d

Nutshell: superstar earthling detective imported to dyslibertopian planet to investigate murder.

Libertarian dystopia is Solaria, a planet of 20,000 human persons who live on separate estates, worked by 200,000,000 robot slaves (28-29). The libertarian individualism is so complete that humans don't "see" each other, but merely "view" on television (63). Names are not used on more than one person (55). Their excess is sufficient "to devote a single room to a single purpose": library, music room, g

Disclaimer: This is the very first science fiction book I ever read, at the age of 15 (stuck in hospital), and I was swept away... enough to forget the pain for a bit! My father brought me this book and it is one of the many things for which I will forever be thankful to him.

The disclaimer having been delivered, you can’t be surprised at my rating!

Much like Caves of Steel, the book before this one, this reads like a classic murder mystery with the flawed but lovable hard-boiled detective… but is

4.5 stars. I just re-read this story after first reading it years ago. This is the second book of the Robot series taking place shortly after the excellent The Caves of Steel. Like The Caves of Steel, this story is structured as a murder mystery though this one is set on the Spacer world of Solaria. Again, Elijah Bailey is reunited with his robot partner Daneel Olivaw to investigate the murder, thus time of a Solarian scientist.

Me gustó, y la investigación del asesinato me resultó más interesante que en Robot #1; hasta incluyó homenaje, intencionado o no, a Sherlock Holmes (expresamente) y a Poirot (sutilmente).

No es el tipo de historia que muestre la psicologîa de los personajes, no todos tienen que tener esta característica, desde ya, diría que esto es algo que me atrae en un libro; aún así me enganchó desde el principio. Se supone que todas las historias nos hacen pensar de algún modo, obviamente, pero creo que

I can't remember if I've read The Naked Sun before. I think I did, because I had a vague idea about the end. Anyway. This time, it took me ages to read, and I'm not sure why -- when I finally settled down to it, I read over half of it in pretty much one sitting. Elijah Baley, an earth detective who was introduced in The Caves of Steel, is sent to an Outer World planet to investigate something unheard of there: a murder. And Daneel, the robot who assists him in the first book, meets him there as ...more

“Civilizations have always been pyramidal in structure. As one climbs toward the apex of the social edifice, there is increased leisure and increasing opportunity to pursue hapiness. As one climbs, one finds also fewer and fewer people to enjoy this more and more. Invariably, there is a preponderance of the dispossessed. And remember this, no matter how well off the bottom layers of the pyramid might be on an absolute scale, they are always dispossessed in comparison with the apex.” 12 likes
