I'm not sure why Asimov's estate licensed his characters for this book. And I'm not sure the writer does Susan Calvin any justice. The writing seems stilted and I found Calvin more annoying than sympathetic. If you're an Asimov fan, this series might just annoy you like it did me. If I hadn't read Asimov, I might have been able to enjoy it a little. Oh well.

Enjoyed the book, had to finish reading it in the first two days of borrowing (was a page turner). Has a good plot with believable characters and good character development, develing into concepts of artifical intelligence, Ethicial considerations of hospitals and psychy of the human mind. Is a definite worthwhile read especially for any university student studying psychology or Philosophy or who is just interested in these subjects.

Ok read, but Robot hardly in book. Not really sci fi.And very little plot.
