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.

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.
