The electrifying sequel to Caves of Steel in which Elijah Baley is once more teemed up with R. Daneel. The two must travel to Solaria, where no human has gone in over a thousand years...Reacting in fear against the technological superiority of the Outer Worlds, the people of Earth have hidden themselves in vast underground cities, nursing a hatred for Spacers. The fifty Outer Worlds of the Spacers together are home to fewer people than planet Earth. And home to many, many more robots. Earthmen hate Spacer robots, too...But Baley doesn't. He once had a robot partner, R. Daneel - and when the authorities of the planet Solaria request terrestrial assistance in investigating a murder, Baley is once again teamed with Daneel. He is the first Earthman in a millennium to travel to the Outer Worlds...and he must endure the glare of a sun far more deadly than Earth's.

Awesome! I love Asimov and his collection of novels

Review--The Naked Sun
Asimov very rarely disappoints and The Naked Sun is no different. What I find most enjoyable about Asimov's works and The Naked Sun specifically is the always intriguing clash between conflicting ideologies. As a mystery/scifi thriller, The Naked Sun is quite fun but what makes it great is the incredible depth Asimov gives to the characters and societies. Anyone who has read the Foundation trilogy will know that Asimov writes psychologically deep stories. The Naked Sun, similar to Caves of Steel, allows us to peer into the mind of Lije and into the collective mind of the Solarians. The one complaint I have is that I felt that Daneel was developed less than I would have hoped.
