5.0 out of 5 stars Asimov at his very best, 15 Nov. 2001
This review is from: The Naked Sun: 2/4 (Robot Series) (Paperback)
The 'Naked Sun' is the 2nd of Issac Asimov's SF detective novels, and is probably the best (the only other contender is this books forerunner 'The Caves of Steel.' Asimov presents us with a future where much of humanity has left for the stars and the Earth has become a sort of overcrowded ghetto for those who remain. Earthmen are now generally confined to their planet, and it is extremely unusal for any to leave. Earthmen are now considered inferior by the instellar colonists who call themselves 'Spacers.'
As well as presenting a compelling mystery and reuniting the two main characters from the previous book Daneel Olivaw and Elijah Bayley, 'The Naked Sun' paints a compelling picture of a society far removed from our own. Not all of Issac Asimov's work tallied with his legendary status...but if you want a book that will demonstrate how he achieved it, this ones for you
