The Caves of Steel by Isaac Asimov on Audio Download
Overall rating 4. Yes No Thanks for your feedback! Report as inappropriate. I read Caves of Steel about thirty years ago, actually the whole series. I loved it then and now again as an ebook. Even with the antiquated words and descriptions, written in the mid twentieth century, I could relate to the story. Murder is murder. A crime of passion, jealousy, hatred, fear of change, or fear of the future.
They eat yeast made into various foods for variety. The caves of steel is where they live, work, eat, sleep, play.
Raise families. Picked up a book after ages and I'm glad I picked up this one. Excellent description of future times considering it was written over 60 years ago and good all round murder mystery. An oldie but a goodie … Show more Show less. Excellent mastery by Asimov … Show more Show less. Daneel Olivaw who is visually identical to a human and is equipped with a scanner that is able to detect human emotions through their encephalographic waves. A faction of Spacers have come to the realization that Spacer culture is stagnating due to negative population growth and longevity, and feels that the solution is to encourage further space exploration and colonization by Earthmen in concert with robots.
However, Earthmen would first need to overcome their antagonism of robots. To this end, they have established habitations on Earth through which they hope to introduce humanoid robots to Earth. New York City Police Commissioner Julius Enderby is secretly a member of the Medievalists, a subversive anti-robot group which pines for the 'olden days' where men did not live in the 'caves of steel'.
He uses his position to engineer meetings with Spacer Dr. Sarton under the guise of further cooperation, but he actually intends to destroy R. Daneel - who lives with and resembles Dr. Enderby orders R. Sammy to bring a blaster through the unmonitored 'open air' something that no Earthman could countenance , but in the heat of the moment Enderby drops his glasses and fails to distinguish between the human and robot, accidentally shooting the human.
Knowing that Baley's wife is also a Medievalist, he assigns Baley to the case, working with R. Daneel who represents the Spacers, and spreads a rumour about humanoid robots amongst the subversives to throw suspicion on Baley when Enderby later destroys R.
Sammy with radiation. Furthermore, Daneel rules out Enderby as the murderer as his brain patterns show him incapable of deliberately killing. The novel follows Baley and Olivaw as Baley begins to suspect Olivaw but is proved wrong twice. Olivaw gradually learns more about Earth humans and starts to display curiosity in aspects of human behaviour and Earth technology. As part of the investigation, Baley makes a visit to Spacetown where he meets with Dr.
Fastolfe, who injects him with a mildly suggestive drug while speaking about the relative merits and shortcomings of Earth and Spacer society.
Baley is converted to the cause of spreading humanity throughout the galaxy. Although the Spacers deem Baley inadequate to convert enough Earthmen, they find their target when Baley arrests Clousarr on suspicion of inciting a riot and Olivaw provides him with suggestive statements.
Their job accomplished, the Spacers make plans to leave Earth as their continued presence would be to the detriment of their cause and accept Dr.
Sarton's unsolved death as a necessary sacrifice; this leaves Baley with ninety minutes to find the killer which he is convinced will also clear him of the destruction of R.
Baley has a flash of inspiration when he connects Enderby's emotional highs and lows to how close or far away Baley was to solving the murder, and obtaining a recording of the crime scene, manages to demonstrate that fragments of Enderby's glasses remain in situ.
Given that the Spacers have already accepted that Sarton's death is unsolved, they are willing to not prosecute Enderby for the accident if he agrees to work with them to promote colonization of other worlds amongst the Medievalists. Another recurring theme is the tension between Baley's wife as "Jessie" or "Jezebel", and her resentment at Baley for explaining that the Biblical Jezebel story was misinterpreted, stifling her fantasy.
Below is a list of all the major and minor characters in the book, in order of appearance, with plot detail. Reviewer Groff Conklin praised the novel for the way Asimov "combines his interest in robotics with his consuming preoccupation with the sociology of a technology-mad, bureaucratically tethered world of tomorrow.
Schuyler Miller called it "as honest a combination of science fiction and detection as we've seen. A television adaptation was made by the BBC and shown in Daneel Olivaw. In , Akiva Goldsman had been hired to produce a movie. The adaptation was the brainchild of Story Parade story editor Irene Shubik , who was an enthusiast of science fiction and a fan of Isaac Asimov in particular, once referring to him as "one of the most interesting and amusing men I have ever met".
