A millennium into the future, two advances 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.

Detective Elijah Baley is called to the Spacer world Aurora to solve a bizarre case of roboticide. The prime suspect is a gifted roboticist who had the means, the motive, and the opportunity to commit the crime. There’s only one catch: Baley and his positronic partner, R. Daneel Olivaw, must prove the man innocent. For in a case of political intrigue and love between woman and robot gone tragically wrong, there’s more at stake than simple justice. This time Baley’s career, his life, and Earth’s right to pioneer the Galaxy lie in the delicate balance.

    " Insightful, and quite brilliant. "

    " THE ROBOTS OF DAWN has some flaws, but it kept my interest throughout. It's definitely worth reading. "

    " Not my favorite Asimov book. I have been revisiting several of the Foundation-Robot books/stories I had enjoyed years ago to see how they held up over time. In this one, I found too much discussion, not much action. I did enjoy seeing how the differing psychology of Auroran-Solarian-Earth cultures worked out. (A minor note: I was listening to this as an audiobook and found Baley's endless and needless repetition of Gladia's name during their conversations to be extremely unnatural and annoying.) "

    " Fourth novel in the Elijah Bailey Robot Detective series -- all of which are well worth the time spent readng them. "
