    1. Robots and Empire (Robot #4), Isaac Asimov تاریخ نخستین خوانش: ژانویه سال 1994 میلادیعنوان: امپراطوری روباتها (کتاب 4 از سری روبات)؛ نویسنده: آیزاک آسیموف؛ مترجم: کامبیز شمس؛ تهران، شقایق، 1371؛ در 523 ص؛ چاپ دوم: با عنوان: امپراتوری روباتها، 1373؛ در 523 ص؛ موضوع: داستانهای علمی تخیلی از نویسندگان امریکا [...]

    2. Sigh. Love this book. It’s always bittersweet for me to read since it is the last of the four Robot novels, and I will miss the characters (until my next reading in a couple of years!). (As usual, this book can be read as a standalone book without having to read the previous books in the series.)This story, again, features Elijah Baley, the hard-boiled detective from Earth (although in a surprising way – no spoiler here!), and his robot partner, Daneel Olivaw. We also still have Gladia who h [...]

    3. 4.0 stars. While listed as the last of the Robot series, this is probably better discribed as the bridge novel between the Robot novels and the Foundation series. In it we see the beginnings of how the Galactic Empire got started and why there are no Robots in the distant future of the Foundation novels (except of course for R. Daneel Olivaw) who becomes the only central character to appear in both series.In addition to being a pivotal novel in the Robot/Foundation series, it is also top space o [...]

    4. It should be noted that I am a long-standing Asimov fan, so my opinion is perhaps not entirely objective. Having said that, Robots and Empire stands out to me as one of his top works. It serves to bridge his Empire/Foundation and Robots series; this is a dangerous venture, because there is always the risk of fouling one or both stories in the process. Asimov handles it admirably though, in a way that gives a satisfactory conclusion to the Elijah Baley story, and sets the scene for the way into t [...]

    5. In some ways, this novel, which clearly and explicitly links three of Isaac Asimov's series--Robot, Foundation, and Empire--is the development of a new law of robotics. Of course, all fans of Asimov know the three laws: 1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm; 2. A robot must obey orders given it by humans except where such orders would violate the First Law; 3. A robot must protect its existence unless such behavior would violate the fir [...]

    6. Like every other Asimov book, a snappy, fantastic read full of crisp dialogue and an absorbing plot with elements of sci-fi and mystery. I will never get over his ability to craft books without a single dull moment despite the fact that 99% of the action is just people talking. They're either hashing out a logical argument or painstakingly explaining one of the few actual bits of action, and I will never get tired of it. If you're new to Asimov, thank you for reading this review, but let me stop [...]

    7. Bir önceki kitapla başlayan Vakıf serisine olan köprünün inşaatı bununla son buldu. Şuan hala kitabın sonunun etkisindeyim. Bu Asimov nasıl bir yazardır da yıllar sonra bile okunduğunda insanı böyle derinden etkileyebiliyor anlamış değilim. Şuan altını çize çize söylüyorum Vakıf serisini direk okumayın. Araya Robot serisini muhakkak ekleyin. Tam okuma sırasını yazımın sonuna ekleyeceğim buna uyun muhakkak. Kitap için birşeyi demeden de edemeyeceğim. Ulan Glad [...]

    8. The main focus (and also the most interesting part) is on the robots Daneel and Giskard and their debates onThe Three Lawsand the HUMANITY concept, giving them new and (un?)expected depth.A beautiful ending to the Robots series and a bridge to the following works in the Foundation Universe.

    9. Es increíble ser testigo de la evolución de los personajes a través de la narrativa tan fluida de Asimov, no se sienten forzados los cambios de cada uno de ellos y se comparte su aceptación de sus nuevos estatus. Espectacular cierre de la saga de los robots y al mismo tiempo un excelente puente para lo que sigue. Voy a extrañar a cierto robot

    10. Asimov, a lo largo de muchísimos años, escribió cientos de relatos. Y no solamente de ciencia ficción, sino ademas, de divulgación, e incluso historia. En todos esos años, obviamente, imaginó mundos futurísticos donde los humanos lograron expandirse por toda la galaxia, encontrándose incluso en algunos de esos relatos, con razas extraterrestres que ponían en mayor o menor peligro al hombre.Alrededor de los años 80, el gran Isaac, luego de años sin escribir sobre la temática, publica [...]

    11. "Lentamente, esitando, Daneel tese la mano, e Giskard la fissò incerto. Poi anche lui tese la mano. Le punte delle dita si sfiorarono, poi i due robot si strinsero la mano sembrava quasi che non solo si definissero amici, ma lo fossero davvero."A volte, mi detesto. Sono così sentimentale. Cioè, la maggior parte della gente mi conosce come una persona riservata, poco incline a indugiare su smancerie e melensaggini, a lasciarsi andare a confidenze, o simili. Una tutta d'un pezzo, insomma. Ma co [...]

    12. Isaac Asimov wrote his original Robot, Empire, and Foundation novels as separate series in the 1950s, and then in the 1980s wrote a number of novels that bridge them together into a continuous future history. The Robots of Dawn and Robots and Empire are two that form the bridge between his Robot mysteries, and his Empire adventures. Here is the complete chronology:1 The End of Eternity (stand-alone) 19552 I, Robot (short stories) 19503 The Caves of Steel (Robot) 19544 The Naked Sun (Robot) 19575 [...]

    13. Having grown up in the cold war era, ducking under desks in preparation for nuclear destruction from the USSR, I developed a bit of antipathy towards Russians so even though I was an ardent science fiction fan I refused to read Isaac Asimov on the principle that he was Russian even though all my science fiction loving friends were crazy in love with Asimov fiction. One day, reluctantly, I picked up Foundation. One third of the way through the novel I was becoming extremely upset because I could [...]

    14. Out of all the Foundation-and-related books, this one is definitely in line for being declared the weakest.We find out how things happened, but what would have been brilliant as 2-3 pages of exposition was stretched out to hundreds of pages of endless flashbacks, somewhat dull dialogue, and at least 70 repetitions of the words "nuclear intensifier".Especially annoying highlights:Vasilia made Giskard into what he is. All fine and good, but one of the characters even mentions that this is extremel [...]

    15. Really enjoyed this one. Although Bailey is not present, Gladia, Daneel and Giskard prove to be excellent protagonists. This novel can clearly be seen as a bridge to his other novels. I'm reading Asimov in a semi chronological order and this novel clearly propels the next step in the history of his universe, showing what triggers the formation of the galactic empire.One peculiar thing I found was how the focus of the novel changed from Gladia to the robots. It seems to me to be premeditated, (vi [...]

    17. Not my favorite. Certainly not the best of the Robot series. Large amounts of this could be excised and nothing would be lost. But I suppose we had to bridge the gap between the Robot books and the Empire books somehow.

    18. I SHIT MYSELF. This book was SO good and the best part was that I read the 1980s edition paperback and I had the best time ever. THE BEST TIME EVER. ARRRGGH.

    19. Friends never say goodbyeThe events that lead to the current predicament of humanity in the Robot series beginning from I, Robot through Robots and Empire leaves the reader with a bitter sweet sense of success. Humanity has still not overcome its dread of robots but they can lust after them if designed to look as humans. The sarcasm is lost to all humans even if it stands before them all the time. The humans from all over the galaxy are broken into two fragments(or Tribes), Settlers and Spacers. [...]

    20. This is the last of Asimov's Robot books and one I really enjoyed and has made me want to read even more by him.The story continues the greater plot started, very lightly, in Caves Of Steel and brings in little mentions of several of the short stories as well. I didn't expect any of the short stories to make an appearance as I always thought they were just ideas about the same basic universe of robots and humans. It's more than that and discovering it made me smile.

    21. This is the book that ultimately ties together most of Dr. Asimov's fictional stories in one tremendous overarching scenario. As such, the emphasis is on world creating. Or perhaps world combining might be a better phrase. As in many Asimov stories, the official story itself is of less importance than his theme. In this one, the story is of course, still good but while the humans go about their business that makes up the story, the real story is that told through the robots Giskard and Daneel as [...]

    22. The fourth and final book in Isaac Asimov's beloved robot series, "Robots and Empire" takes place many years after the death of Elijah Bailey, who has become somewhat of a galactic folk hero for his efforts in space exploration and colonization of planets far beyond the Terran solar system. His robot friend, Daneel Olivaw, lives on and strives to carry on the good work started by his human friend. With the help of a telepathic robot named Giskard, Olivaw struggles with the turbulent political la [...]

    23. More like a 3,5. Was kind of tedious at times, but still interesting to see the way Asimov tried to tie together what happened at the end of Robots of Dawn with the birth of psychohistory, Earth going to shit, the galactic expansion and how the Second Foundation got their powers. Also really enjoyed the continuing remarks about the danger of Spacer stagnation (and stagnation in general). Living TOO comfortable can't be good for anyone.The end felt way too rushed. Like before I knew it, the book [...]

    24. While I did eventually get absorbed, this last book of Asimov's Robot series didn't live up to my expectations based on the first 3 books. Perhaps it was the lack of Elijah Baley, but the novel felt more like Asimov's attempt to bridge the gap between the previous books in the Robot series and the Foundation series and less of an individual plot.

    25. Storyline: 4/5Characters: 2/5Writing Style: 3/5World: 2/5Asimov manages a surprising level of consistency across his Foundation and Robots books. Through the thirty-five years in which he produced these nine core novels, he retains his own Golden Age style and worldview. Looking back over the others in the two series, however, I also see how varied the books are. The Caves of Steel had the best worldbuilding of any of the others, Foundation and Empire poorly handled just about everything, wherea [...]

    26. This book continues the events from previous work. Again, having read Foundation, Trevize and his friends ultimately find Earth, being radiocative and uninhabited, and find robot Daneel hidden on the Moon. Daneel is by that time, as well as Elijah are some mythical figures in the distant future.In Robots and Empire Daneel and Giskaard decide humanities's future by their actions, forced to chose the least of evils. Elijah is 200 years dead, but his memory remains vivid.We found out how Daneel gai [...]

    27. Unlike the first three books in the Robot series, Robots and Empire is not a murder mystery. That's a little disappointing, as the previous mix of science fiction and classic procedural was highly enjoyable. Robots and Empire is more of a straight up sci-fi story, with a bit of suspense built in, as several of the characters from past books come together again to thwart a plot to destroy earth.The central theme of the novel is the balance between doing things that benefit society and doing thing [...]

    28. Poslední a pro mně nejlepší kniha z robotí ságy. Napínavá (až bych čekal kdy bude film) a přesto asi s největší závěrečnou myšlenkou. Absence Elijáše nevadila, Gladie a oba roboti příběh naplnili beze zbytku.
