Please try again later. I usual find myself bored of most fiction as the premises are poorly constructed or not based in reality or in this case a realistic future. This book has been a non stop page turner. Absolutely cannot recommend it enough. Didn’t know it was a hard cover but was very grateful. I purchased this book for my husband who was elated it arrived 2 weeks ahead of the projected delivery date.
Because this book was shipping from the UK I figured it would arrive much later, if at all. Mwn feel guilty for harboring such doubt.
The fact that they had this book was exceptional and it was in better condition than the “good condition” stated. Should I need to purchase something from this seller again I will not hesitate. Great book, got to me speedily. Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase.
Beyond the fantastic tale Asimov and Silverberg wove, there are deep underlying philosophical issues addressed in this book, but not in a boring way. The story just causes you to think after you set it down. My collection of Asimov books includes every novel I know about and most of his short stories. So for me, this was a good buy. It is quite different from most of his robot books and stories.
Mwn enjoyed reading it but will not read it again. The book was shipped fast, it qsimov in perfect condition, it was exactly what i wanted and it was exactly what i got, if i had to purchase it again i would. I love this book, and I believe it’s the best version of the story better than Bicentennial Man, which it’s based on. Hard to find, but well worth it.
