    One thought on “Foundation / Foundation and Empire / Second Foundation / The Stars, Like Dust / The Naked Sun / I, Robot”

    1. Asimov at his best, which is out of this world.A prolific writter with a wicked sense of the impossible and able to bring you along on the ride.100 s of books written Hour after hour of enjoyment

    2. d have you read the foundation series yet if not, shame on you it might be a little dry, but it s the finest bit of sci fi world building that i think i ve ever read yeah, yeah, people will argue with me about that, but some of the worlds people build i have a really hard time actually seeing no matter how much detail there is but with asimov, i felt like i was there this place was real and might truly be a part of our far future and psycho history is an amazing concept i might even say it chang [...]

    3. The trilogy of books Foundation, Foundation and Empire and Second Foundation are among the best Asimov ever wrote among his science fiction novels and among his most influential I ve read it was based on Gibbon s Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire Only this empire spans the galaxy Hari Seldon predicts through psychohistory the empire will fall within 300 years and establishes a foundation to manipulate history to shorten the dark ages that will follow The fascination is seeing how all that plays [...]

    4. I love science fiction, but I did not love these books For me, Asimov s appeal lies in his incredible vision the technological advances he predicts, together with the rich history and culture he invents Unfortunately, I feel that his characters are terribly weak, and exist only as necessary and perhaps unwelcome literary devices that showcase his world His lack of focus on character depth, combined with the vast jumps in time between each novel, made me lose interest rather quickly.If you love r [...]

    5. Interesting that The Naked Sun is placed here with the Foundation Trilogy and I Robot the latter now familiar to audiences through the Will Smith version The Foundation trilogy is interesting for its allegories about Vietnam and with psycho history a kind of parody on Marxism but for me the Elijah Bailey series of noir detective stories set off world were Asimov s greatest achievements The Naked Sun and The Caves of Steel magnificent Reminding us that Asimov was also a crime writer and a brillia [...]

    6. NOTE This review concerns only I, Robot, not any of the other included books It s been too long since I ve read the other ones to consider a review of them I really enjoyed I, Robot Mr Asimov has an astonishing talent for making you think and surprising you with the outcomes and reasoning behind them Truly enjoyable books Also, if you are coming in to the book expecting it to be anything like the movie of Will Smith fame, you are going to be surprised They are almost nothing alike.

    7. Asimov is an author of the old school, a purist who patiently lays out his plot like a weaver designing his carpet Every detail is integral to the plot which holds together like a golden weaver s web Asimov like all great minds believes their first priority is to please themselves, if the author like his work, the audience will follow The book is the end of a series that will keep the most fastidious reader guessing and still be surprised A pioneer in his field, Isaac Asimov takes his rightful p [...]

    8. In all fairness, I only read I, Robot out of curiosity after having seen the Will Smith movie I ve had this book probably 15 years and never picked it up until now I m sure for Asimov, the story is excellent it was pretty interesting, though the only thing of his works I ve read thus far Film completely unlike the book naturally, do not bother to compare them The story itself, of a chronicling of events than a gripping page turner, but still worthy of notice for sci fi fans.

    9. The Foundation Trilogy had to be one of Asimov s best, in my opinion As for short stories, his I, Robot series is very engaging, even for those that do not care for science fiction They are, in many ways, studies in human nature and for those that have seen the movie I, Robot the stories of the series put out by Asimov, were not followed AT ALL The movie was completely different except for the stolen title.

    10. Some of the greatest, most ambitious works of Asimov.From the mind blowing concepts of Foundation, and the idea that human civilisation could be quantified, controlled and steered by mathematicsTo the agoraphobic earth in The Stars Like DustTo the anthopophobic Mars in The Naked SunAnd the basic rules of artificial intelligence in I, Robot Asimov has altered the way we look at the world, and will continue to do so long into this new century.

    11. My first introduction to science fiction came accidentally into our house instead of the children s dictionary my mum had ordered from the book club It took me forever to read but i loved the foundation trilogy and recently re read I, Robot.

    12. This collection is timeless and thought provoking It remains a treasure trove for both readers and writers of hard science fiction, though it was written decades ago Isaac Osimov exemplifies the well tailored use of everyman style, delivering easily read stories, though complex in formula.

    13. Don t know why they are merged in this big lump, but I read them all and liked them all, though not all as much as the others.

    14. This is a wonderful collection of the Foundation Trilogy and the Robot novels all in one place This is some of Asimov s best science fiction.

    15. I liked these novels Hard to read them all back to back, though They re dated and a little slow at times But fascinating to see where so much of the sci fi I love came from.
