Asimov gives us lots to think about as he explores what is human and what is not. Human prejudices can keep us captive.

This was a whodunit story without the benefit of enough information for the reader to guess the answer for themselves. I personally didn't find the story effective nor compelling enough to read a second time.

Excellent story by a sci-fi classic. Not to be missed

Let me preface by saying I am not a fan of mysteries. I think they take forever to get to the point, and I'm usually not charmed by the ending. This book is different. Asimov uses a robot detective, and its awesome. Robots are the best, and this one is so much like Data from Star Trek TNG.
This book didn't blow my mind as much as I,Robot, but it still kicks ass.
