    Loved these as a teenager but rereading The Caves of Steel 40 years later I found myself disappointed. Just so poorly written. The portrayal of the wife and son are embarrasingly bad. Full of dialogue along the lines of Gee whiz pop and Golly gee Dad.

  2. That was my observation as well, reading it recently. He was very, by heavy on the exposition, and his characters weren’t really anything great. What I found more interesting were the stories, rather than the execution. I, Robot held up better than Caves ofSteel, I thought.
