    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!"
    "Unforgetable"
    Overall

    The Caves of Steel and its sequels have charactors and story lines that are fondly unforgetable.
    Hopefully someone will release the entire Foundation series in audible format.

    DiGriz is caught during one of his crimes and recruited into the Special Corps. Boring, routine desk work during his probationary period results in his discovering that someone is building a battleship, thinly disguised as an industrial vessel. In the peaceful League no one has battleships anymore, so the builder of this one would be unstoppable. DiGriz' hunt for the guilty becomes a personal battle between himself and the beautiful but deadly Angelina, who his planning a coup on one of the feudal worlds.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The basic story line was fine, however the main character is supposed to be brilliant, but makes decisions that are not.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    For the first half of the book you could easily identify with the main character. After he obtained the love/hate relationship with the villain his decision making became out of character.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    A less wise cracking voice might have made the character more likable.
