Despite Asimov's status as one of the pioneers of science fiction (and this book's future setting), this book doesn't really read like science fiction. It just reads like a novel that happens to be set in a science fiction setting. (This is different from the Foundation series - which felt *very* science fiction-y.) Enjoyable story and quick light read.
The best part of an Asimov book is while though you know something is coming, (which you know because the author hints at it, at times blatantly), you still don't know HOW it will happen; it's still a surprise. This is one of those stories, well crafted and interesting. iRobot is possibly the best way to get into Asimov stories, this rates a very close second.
As usual a good story by Asimov. The last of the Empire novels. Again, this novel proves that Asimov was uncomfortable writing about love/sex/romance. His descriptions dealng with them are the most stilted sections of the book.
