The Robots of Dawn

A whodunit in space!Asimov

Isaac Asimov was an extremely productive author. He wrote or edited more than 500 books. His most famous work is probably the Foundation series, consisting of 15 novels, published between 1950 and 1993. The Robots of Dawn is set around 3500 AD;  it’s still early days in the Foundation series and an empire doesn’t exist yet. Elijah Baley, a policeman from Earth, is sent to investigate a “roboticide” – a humaniform robot has been destroyed via a mental block. Elijah Baley and his robot partner R. Daneel Oliaaw are the protagonists in two more novels: The Caves of Steel and The Naked Sun. These books focus on the conflicts between spacers (descendants of human settlers from other planets) and the people from an overcrowded Earth.

Why I chose this book? Well, I think it’s a nice setting with a whodunit in space, and I like being taken for a ride!!!
Can you guess who is the “murderer”? I couldn’t! 🙂
