    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!

    "Not your kids robot story"

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

    Again Asimov weaves a great story. It is fun to have a murder mystery mixed with the question of what makes us human.

    The only thing that is disappointing is the narration. There so many fantastic narrators out there, I do not know why Durfis was chosen.


    What aspect of William Dufris’s performance would you have changed?

    Story

    For a thousand years the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years the Lord Ruler, the "Sliver of Infinity," reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Then, when hope was so long lost that not even its memory remained, a terribly scarred, heart-broken half-Skaa rediscovered it in the depths of the Lord Ruler's most hellish prison.

    Lore says: "Book 1 of a great series that is not to be missed!"
    "Good Read"

    If you could sum up The Final Empire in three words, what would they be?

    It was a good read. Not blow my socks off, but worth the purchase. It would be a PG-13 rated movie, mild violence.


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

    No, never engaged me that strongly.
