This book is a collection of many of Isaac Asimov's best short stories. The title and image on the front cover are somewhat deceiving as not ALL of the stories involve robots, although many do. A good deal of the robot stories are actually taken directly from Asimov's book "I, Robot", which is a slight drawback.
I have ready a great deal of Asimov's short fiction but some of these stories were new to me, which was refreshing. The order of the stories in the collection was also crafted extremely well.
It is also important to note that the narration performance in this audio book is top notch. The reader has a very soft, relaxing voice and makes sure to give every different character his or her own unique voice.
9.4 / 10.0

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The first story, "Little Lost Robot", was an excellent short and wish it could have been much longer.

Love love love these stories, full of thought provoking, imaginative ideas. A great audio book as it's composed of short stories, can get through most of the stories in under 1 hour, so suitable for work commute. The narration is somewhat robotic which is quite apt and in no way boring or annoying.
The stories are very intriguing and engaging, however the narration really detracts from the overall enjoyment of the book - there are stops at odd places of the sentence, and sometimes it's quite hard to distinguish between characters.
