    Okay

    The writing is well done for the most part. But to begin with this is in no way part of Asimov's Canon. It's like watching a movie remake or a superhero reboot. The sociopolitical setting is different, the evolution of robots is different and ignores the first introduction of Susan Calvin into Asimov's work. Okay, so it ignores Susan Calvin's entire history AMD personality. Like I said, it's not Canon. Unfortunately the author goes to great pains to explain the changes of society and science/medicine but then uses ridiculous hypotheses for the main danger of the story. *SPOILERS*Nano-robots with ONLY sensors, only the capacity for one command, and no tools for mobility (their extraction requires the use of an external magnet to move them) are then reprogrammed to control patients brains to target specific (or specific types of) places, tell them where they can pick up bombs or bomb components and while doing all these complicated tasks manage to retain their original programming for data collection. Not to mention how are they supposed to collect information on specific firings and misfirings of synapses when they're just lazily floating around the cerebro-spinal fluid? They would need some sort of "brain GPS" to know where they were. And really? Human hands directly directly building nanorobots using tiny hammers? AND having said hands easily discernable under the same magnification which let's them see nanorobots on the nanometer scale?*END SPOILERS* Buy it on discount.

    Unexpectedly engaging

    Thought it was going to be similar to the movie of the same name. Not even close. Surprsingly entertaining
