Published a review of Robots and Empire
The fourth novel in the Robot Series, _Robots and Empire provides the transitional plot to the Foundation Series. This is my favorite novel of the series. The characters have been fully fleshed out by Asimov, and their struggle to live up to Elijah Baley’s legacy is engaging. The interactions between the robots Olivaw and Giskard are unique and interesting. Due to their secretive nature, they must solve a crisis of humanity, without possessing the necessary qualities to do so. Through reason, determination, and something of a robotic spirit, they transcend their programming to meet the crisis.
