    It s the purest speculation, but I have a theory that Isaac Asimov may have had an affair with a Swedish woman somewhere around 1955 At that time he was in his mid 30s, and had been married for around 10 years The evidence Well, he wrote two novels in rapid succession, The End of Eternity and The Naked Sun, which, very unusually for the early Asimov, contain sexy female characters that play an important part in the story Both of them have Swedish sounding names with romantic associations Th It s the purest speculation, but I have a theory that Isaac Asimov may have had an affair with a Swedish woman somewhere around 1955 At that time he was in his mid 30s, and had been married for around 10 years The evidence Well, he wrote two novels in rapid succession, The End of Eternity and The Naked Sun, which, very unusually for the early Asimov, contain sexy female characters that play an important part in the story Both of them have Swedish sounding names with romantic associations The woman in Eternity is called No s Swedish n js, with a soft j, content oneself, be pleased by the one here is called Gladia Swedish gl dje, also a soft j, happiness Coincidence A hidden message If anyone knows , please tell me

    The Naked Sun, the second novel in the Robot series is a living proof that you can write a detective story set in a future that will not only be interesting, but also profound in the way best science fiction books are A mix of science fiction and crime is not something everyone can pull of, but Asimov makes it look easy In fact, Asimov s Robot series is one of my favourite ones The writing in this novel is so clean and precise, not one word or sentence too much or to little Asimov writing The Naked Sun, the second novel in the Robot series is a living proof that you can write a detective story set in a future that will not only be interesting, but also profound in the way best science fiction books are A mix of science fiction and crime is not something everyone can pull of, but Asimov makes it look easy In fact, Asimov s Robot series is one of my favourite ones The writing in this novel is so clean and precise, not one word or sentence too much or to little Asimov writing is typically well rounded, descriptive and intelligent, but The Naked Sun takes it to a whole new level I don t know if this novel was written this way or edited to perfection but if this novel was edited, it had a great editor So many writers could learn from Asimov Not every book needs to be 500 pages long Sometimes a shorter novel can deliver a message that is just as strong One of the things I love about the Asimov s Robot series is that his novels are just the perfect length It is amazing how much philosophy, sociology and science can be cramped into such a tiny novel Not to say anything about memorable characters both human and non human and interesting dialogues I know I said that Robots of Dawn is my favourite novel in the Robot series, but somehow I managed to skip this one without realizing it I thought I read it before, but I actually only got the chance to read it yesterday I read it in what felt like one breath and I loved it just as much Can I have two favourites Pretty please Just like with the other books in the series, the murder mystery part was exceptionally well written Indeed, this novel kept me not interested, but also deeply fascinated I was fascinated by the description of Solaris planet and its society The plot was well written and paced, so I enjoyed the crime aspect of this novel just as much The examination of what it means to be a robot as opposed to being human is a big part of this novel as well However, I had a feeling this one focusedon two aspects of humanity the Earthlings and the Spacers people who found home outside Earth The writer paints a very different picture of humans living on Earth and those living on Outer Words The way technology influences us is a fascinating subject and one that made me think On Solaria, people view rather than see one another, that is they only communicate virtually with holographic projection I wonder what would Asimov think if he lived to see the world today where business and personal meetings are often Skype and holograms are sometimes used as well Would he be surprised by how accurate he was in some of his predictions Moreover, the difference between Spacers and Earthlings is often contrasted in this novel The economical and social structure of two different planets Earth and Solaris are examined For example, humans living on Earth live under ground and as a consequence suffer from what looks like acute agoraphobia When our Earth detective gets summoned to solve a case of murder on Solaris, he doesn t go there only as a detective but as a representative of the Earth He hason his mind than just figuring out one murder and not just because in order to figure it, he needs to figure out the dramatically different human society existing on Solaris but because the very future of Earthlings and Spacers might depend on it He also has to fight his phobia, not just to be able to do his job well, but to open a new future for mankind To conclude, I can definitely recommend this novel, especially to fans of science fiction and or crime genre MY BLOG
