A millennium into the future two advancements have altered the course of human history: the colonization of the galaxy and the creation of the positronic brain. Isaac Asimov's Robot novels chronicle the unlikely partnership between a New York City detective and a humanoid robot who must learn to work together. Like most people left behind on an over-populated Earth, New York City police detective Elijah Baley had little love for either the arrogant Spacers or their robotic companions.

The world of this story is very typical for Asamov, as are the three laws which play such a large roll, but each character is fascinating and human (even those that aren't) to such a degree that you will have selfish have to listen in one sitting.
