The Caves of Steel by Isaac Asimov

My hand is a robot hand.

This is a book I read maybe 6 or 7 years ago on my Kindle so I don’t remember much from it. But I have this physical copy of it now, so before I put it away on my bookshelf I want to jot down a few thoughts on it.

It was okay. I remember choosing it after a hard-boiled detective novel phase I was going through, Elmore Leonard, that kind of thing, and this was billed as Isaac Asimov’s attempt at this. The main characters are Lige (Elijah) Baley, and his robot co-detective, R. Daneel. They solve a murder.

The lead in and setup were quite compelling, there was some reason why the two characters were put together, and it worked. I just pass judgement for now until one day I read it again…

I present this book with 3 Helmets out of 5. Huzzah!
