    On the beautiful Outer World planet of Solaria, a handful of human colonists lead a hermitlike existence, their every need attended to by their faithful robot servants. To this strange and provocative planet comes Detective Elijah Baley, sent from the streets of New York with his positronic partner, the robot R. Daneel Olivaw, to solve an incredible murder that has rocked Solaria to its foundations.

    Mark says: "Science Fiction at it's best"

    Story
    If you could sum up The Naked Sun in three words, what would they be?

    phobias, phobias, murder :-)


    What did you like best about this story?

    Its very well written episode from a robots series, however, I find the Caves of steel a bit better. Maybe because it was a first book of that kind.

    Elijah Baley


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    Story
    (471)

    Like most people left behind on an over-populated Earth, police detective Elijah Baley has little love for either the arrogant Spacers or their robotic companions. But when a prominent Spacer is murdered under mysterious circumstances, Baley is ordered to the Outer Worlds to help track down the killer. Then he learns that he has been assigned a partner: R. Daneel Olivaw. Worse, the R stands for "robot" - and his positronic partner is made in the image and likeness of the murder victim!

    Dionne says: "perfectly executed!"
    "Must-have from Asimov"

    Story
    Where does The Caves of Steel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Original plot that outlines the series about future of the humanity before empire and foundation era. Excellent prequel to the Foundations.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Its a quite simple crime investigation, however, the background of overcrowded cities and inevitable phobias creates an excellent mix.


    Which character – as performed by William Dufris – was your favorite?

    Elijah Baley


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes
