A millennium into the future,
two advancements have altered the course of human history: the colonization of
the galaxy and the creation of the positronic brain. Isaac Asimov’s Robot novels chronicle the unlikely partnership between a
New York City detective and a humanoid robot who must learn to work together.
Like most people left behind
on an over-populated Earth, New York City police detective Elijah Baley has
little love for either the arrogant Spacers or their robotic companions. But
when a prominent Spacer is murdered under mysterious circumstances, Baley is
ordered to the Outer Worlds to help track down the killer. The relationship
between Lije and his Spacer superiors, who distrust all Earthmen, was strained
from the start. Then he learns that they had assigned him a partner: R. Daneel
Olivaw. Worst of all is that the “R” stands for robot—and his positronic
partner is made in the image and likeness of the murder victim! Download and start listening now!
