Laws and Robots,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Caves of Steel (Robot Series) (Paperback)
The first time I read this book was when a friend gave me an old copy complete with rather poor cover. Had I judged the book by its cover I would have missed one of my favourite books.
The story relates the tale of an Earth where the human race has split into two factions: the Spacers - humans who have settled on other worlds, and the humans descended from those who remained behind. Each dislikes the other and so when a Spacer scientist is murdered on Earth it falls to an Earth detective and a Spacer robot to combine their knowledge and track down the killer.
I enjoyed this book as a young teenager and have read it a couple of times since then. Each time I have enjoyed it and its sequels (The Naked Sun and The Robots of Dawn). Asimov was a master storyteller and this book is no exception.
