The book really sets in place the laws of robotics and drills them into the reader's mind. It will make you think, however, because laws cannot be broken. Circumstances sometimes force the laws to be broken and that's when problems arise. The end of the novel (no spoilers, don't worry!) will really make you think about a lot of things, particularly the dynamic between human and machine and the dependence upon them.
It's a relatively short book and will keep you entertained the entire time. It's got the feeling of classic science fiction and his writing style reminded me a little bit of Richard Matheson, which made me that much more interested. I would recommend this to anybody who saw the terrible Will Smith movie by the same name and wants it to be redeemed.
My chosen order is: I Robot, Nemesis, Caves of steel, Naked sun, Robots of Dawn, Robots and Empire, The stars like dust, The currents of space, Pebble in the sky, Foundation, Foundation and empire, Second foundation, Foundation's edge, Foundation and earth, Prelude to foundation, and Forward the foundation.
The last two prequels so they can be read ahead of the Foundations series to put things in order, but they take some of the mystery and suspense out of the series. If you don 't like guessing and imagining things as you read the stories, then read the prequels first. I'll read them last. After all, Asimov wrote them afterwards.
The stories are very readable. Asimov was masterful even early in his career. I'm so glad to get a Kindle copy; I've worn out several copies of this book in my life.
