Caves of Steel is a detective story, set around the murder of a Spacer a visiting colonist from another world.

The only character who is intelligent throughout the book is the robot, which would be boveddas if the robot was the protagonist, but since we are instead treated to chapters full of inane dialogue between a dumb “detective” and his even more idiotic wife, it’s very hard to deal with.

As was common practice at the time, the master tapes of The Caves of Steel were wiped some time after broadcast and the play remains missing to this day. Any human would be severely struck down by agoraphobia and incapable of making the short trip.


Not much action, this is a lot of Asimov describing his futuristic world. The world retreated to urban ‘caves of steel’ in the face of the overwhelming population of 8 billion several thousand years in the future which just doesn’t seem likely today.

I also thought the comment of Without yeast, six of Earth’s eight billions would starve in a year to be somewhat amusing as well, considering how many people live on the Earth today and we are not reliant upon using yeast molds to make artificial foods to survive. I think it’s the one book I’ve read more recently that got the most reactions from people almost all of them family seeing me read it or noticing it sitting on a coffee table close to me.

I opted not to buy the audiobook, but the idea of a sci-fi mystery starring a human cop and a robot partner intrigued me, so I requested it via ILL. If the Caves of Steel are the future of out cities, I’m glad I’ll have long since turned to dust.

The plot itself is fairly basic—the odd couple ed in sci fi. 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.

Daneel Olivaw, a robot, is also treated sympathetically. Not much action, this is a lot of Asimov describing his futuristic world. Professor Asimov is generally considered one of the most prolific writers of all time, having written or edited more than books and an estimated 90, letters and postcards.

Not about this futuristic world and its working mechanisms.

The real charm of the story is the boveda of life on Earth, the contrast between that life and that of the Spacers and the Earthmen and the explorations of the various prejudices among the groups. The ending itself was pretty unexpected to me, which made me enjoy the book that much more. Further, robots are making inroads on the human labor market, causing even more distress.

A perfect weekend read for those who love crime novels and those who love Sci Fi because both genre fare well in this book. Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. The chief tension in this future society is that of overpopulation. And it’s hard work to make a detective novel feels real when you can spirit any technological solution out of nowhere to explain how you caught the bad guy, which Asimov is careful not to do.

Heinlein and acwro produced by Cordwainer Smith and Poul Anderson. People would say, ‘How could you imagine such a nightmarish situation? And Asimov was not naive, but a master propagandist. 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.

The sliding sidewalks in the novel really reminded me of Heinlein’s sliding sidewalks in many of his stories that can and will take people almost anywhere they want to go. Traditionally, this is annoying to me in literature and film – it just feels natural in Asimov. He did this 3 times but ended up being right on the last proclamation.
