Isaac Asimov’s Robot City: Odyssey

This is the first in a series of robot stories endorsed by Isaac Asimov. I enjoyed the first third of the book more than the last two thirds, mainly because I found the second two thirds a little hard to believe. Interestingly they were hard to believe in a similar manner to some of the Stainless Steel Rat books (such as The Stainless Steel Rat Saves the World, The Stainless Steel Rat Wants You, and The Stainless Steel Rat Goes to Hell). I wont get too specific, because I don’t want to spoil the plot.

This book felt kinda juvenile as well — the plot lacked depth in my opinion. On the other hand, I did enjoy reading it, and it was better than I expected it to be.
