I can't get over Isaac Asimov's books. He has an M.Night Shamalan twist type of thing going but, his stories are actually good. The book gets you into a reality thats hard to escape from. After reading this series i definatelly recomnend moving on to the Foundation Series for the total mind blowing Asimov twist!!!!!

The Naked Sun shall remain renowned as one of the greatest of Asimov's novels. A brilliant combination of thrilling action, engaging mystery, and fasicinating theory, and with a carefully cultivated aura of the echoes of change and the triumph of a new world.

This book is excellent. The storyline is absorbing and intelligent, the writing, superb. Isaac Asimov is considered by everybody to be one of the best science-fiction writers, as well as the most prolific.

Classic Asimov. Has held up well over the years but not as much fun as when I first read it 50 years or so ago.

The Robot series is fascinating , even still today, and this in patticular is as strong as any of the prior installments. It's very much a mystery science fiction novel and never loses interest. If you have made it this far in the series you will not be let down.
