Review: The Robots of Dawn

The Robots of Dawn
The Robots of Dawn by Isaac Asimov

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Starts a little slow, a little too much like the previous two. But it picks up and takes on its own path. I enjoy the way Asimov develops the relationship between Baley and the robots. Baley is a good character, but too intuitive as a detective for my tastes. The robots are in many ways the more interesting characters. It is also fun to learn about the early developments of psychohistory. I am mixed on the end. In a way it is a bit dues ex machina. At the same time, there are enough hints looking back so that is not really.
