4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting development in robotics, 25 Aug 2000
By 
M. Bryant - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Isaac Asimov's Caliban (Mass Market Paperback)
The author expands Asimov's original robotics concepts with a detective story reminiscent of the masters Elijah Bailey tales. Although interesting in content I couldn't help comparing the writers style and ability to Asimov and felt that he came up short with perhaps only 75% of Asimov quality. I'm glad I read the book simply so that I could get some more immersion in Asimov's universe, but ultimately a little dissappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book about the potential problems of a lawless robot, 16 July 2000
This review is from: Isaac Asimov's Caliban (Mass Market Paperback)
Despite (the) description, this book is not about a robot with revised laws. The robot in question has NO laws, and no knowledge of what they are supposed to be. On the run from police, robot-breakers and the organisation who built him, suspected of a murder he has no knowledge of, this robot makes for a gripping read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gripping read!, 16 Jan 2005
This review is from: Isaac Asimov's Caliban (Mass Market Paperback)
Having read many an Asimov book, I decided to read this to see if I would like it or not - I couldn't put it down!
Asimov's Caliban was brought to life for me, and I rooted for him in his flight from those who would destroy him - what a chase!
The whole detective style of the story kept me gripped from the first page, from Caliban's first awareness, right through his search for the purpose of his existence. This is definately a book to read and ponder over, & the author is to be congratulated for keeping to Asimov's visions.

4.0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER GREAT STORY BY ASIMOV, 22 Mar 2014
By

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Isaac Asimov's Caliban (Hardcover)
I enjoyed this robot story. Caliban has a personality, despite being a "robot". This is wonderfully innovative. Asimov was a master at writing stories about robots; nobody even came close.
