The Caves of Steel

The Caves of Steel  - Isaac Asimov Well I read my first Asimov Robot's book and I enjoyed this more than Foundation. A fast-paced thriller/mystery story, the three major characters were well drawn and a few key supporting characters as well. He also had an interesting view of the future which isn't all that out of line with the kind of future one might posit today. Despite his weakness of silly dialogue at points, some even incomprehensible, Asimov more than makes up to it with good action, character interplay, plotting and great ideas. A fun read.
