Certainly not a bad book, but the weakest one I've read in all of Asimov's Robots and Foundation series. It opens and closes well, but the middle drags (relative to the other books). I'm glad I'd already read Foundation and Earth or I would have found the whole Solaria arc very unsatisfying. On the plus side, this book does answer one major question that Foundation and Earth raised for me.
Worth reading, but read the Foundation series (all the way through to Foundation and Earth) first.

Of the Robot Series, the Naked Sun reads the best...However, one needs to read I, Robot, Caves of Steel in succession to understand Investigator Baley's character and motivation. I recommend the entire series to get the full impact of Asimov's "prediction" of the conflicts between humans and robots. Asimov writes authoritively with scientific concepts and has great vision of the future.
