Robots and Empire (Robot #4) by Isaac AsimovSigh. 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 has been the love interest in the two books previous to this one. She really comes into herself in this book, and I just love her. Daneel is joined in his work by another robot, Giskard, who was featured very briefly in the book before this one, but this time, Giskard wins your heart.
In this story, it is planet Earth that is in danger of destruction, and a large part of the mystery in the book is not who is going to destroy it, but how. We know there’s an “evil plot” and a truly unlikable “dastardly doer.” What we must discover along with our detectives is how it is to be done – so they can stop it, of course.
I must say, there is a part of this book that gets me crying every time… even when I know it’s coming. Considering I read everything aloud to my hubby, you can imagine how difficult this passage is as I am choking on my words, sniffling, and trying to swallow around the lump in my throat as I read. And yet, that passage is so wonderful that I have to read it, I have to wallow for those moments. No, I’m not going to give even one detail, but I consider it a testimony to the writing and the character development, that I am consistently reduced to a sniveling wreck.
Finally, while this book was written three decades after the first book in the Empire series, this book is a good lead up to the first book in that series (which isn’t actually a series – they are three standalone novels that much later have been dubbed “a series”), which makes for a very satisfying jumping off point if you are interested in reading on… Happily, if you are not interested in reading on and getting into the next series, the ending of this book very nicely finishes up the Robot series, and leaves you completely satisfied.

Robots and Empire is a science fiction novel by the American author Isaac Asimov and published by Doubleday Books in Robots and Empire is part of Asimov's consolidation of his three major series of science fiction stories and novels: his Robot series, his Galactic Empire series and his Foundation series. Asimov also carried out this unification in his novel Foundation's Edge , and its sequel, thus unifying the three series of fiction into a single future history. In the novel, Asimov depicts the transition from his earlier Milky Way Galaxy , inhabited by both human beings and positronic robots , to his Galactic Empire. While the Earth is much more populous than all of the Spacer planets combined, its people are looked down upon and treated almost as sub-human by the Spacers.
