    My first read of Isaac Asimov s work It was a mind opening experience, for someone who hadn t read a science fiction work of a grand master level It is a stand alone novel, and it has no special distinctive idea unlike Foundation series or Robot series , but the writing style is definitely Asimov s Of course I can only say this after I ve read his other works Nowadays I reluctant to rate Asimov s fictions full 5 star because his execution in storytelling is not so good, tend to be boring in long novels I prefer his shorter stories for optimum pleasure reading experience.

    3.5 The same anarchy, the same degeneration, the same thoughtless short term thinking, all the same cultural and social disparities would continue to prevail Galaxy wide.What would there be now Galactic empires All the sins and follies graduated from one world to millions Every woe and every difficulty horribly magnified Who would be able to make sense out of a Galaxy, when no one had ever made sense out of a single world Who would learn to read the trends and foresee the future in a whole Galaxy teeming with humanity Nemesis had indeed come When they ask me why I love Asimov, I tend to answer something like, Because he wrote the most alive robots I ve ever seen And that s true, that s surely part of the reason But see, there is also something that goes a bit beyond that.The thing for me is, Asimov had the vision of a man of the galaxy even while being shocker only a man of the World His characters if we don t count, in my case at least, Baley and Olivaw are not memorable because his portrait of the human kind is memorable Asimov projects into the future an idea of humanity, with its wretchedness and its many wonders, which manages to encompass thousands and thousands of years of human evolution even when factually spanning no than a few months, all because Asimov had this simple yet great intuition, that is that human nature doesn t change, and even though said nature develops with never ending variations, it ultimately points in one direction alone We are chaotic, we are impetuous, we are ambitious, and, most beautiful and wondrous thing of all, we are absolutely unapologetic about being all those things But we also make mistakes, we are way to prone to giving in to the worst of ourselves, we hate and we fight and when we don t get what we want, we claw our way to it, and again, we don t usually make excuses for our actions Because we are human And Asimov had an uncanny knack for capsulizing this simple but astronomically deep truth in the form of stories, which is just about the most magical thing in the world.Even though it happens sometimes that I don t like some specific detail in one of Asimov s books, be it a part of the plot, or a character or some other trifle and in Nemesis there were some, but to me they don t even matter this thing about this writer always stays true, and I always can see the greater scheme behind his stories Therefore, don t expect me to be objective about Isaac Asimov, because I m just not able to do that He is too huge for me to be able to do that And if you still are not convinced, or don t understand what I m trying to say at all, just try to read him, and then we ll see.

    I AM NOT QUALIFIED TO WRITE THIS REVIEWBUT IN THE SPIRIT OF WEB 2.0, I LL ATTEMPT TO SPEAK AUTHORITATIVELY ON THE TOPIC.Disclaimer I didn t realize this audio version was abridged, but when I saw that there were only 4 segments and that each part was only 45 minutes long , I figured there must be some content removed.So I m the least qualified person to argue with the other reviewers who said this book was boring, with over lengthy sections of dialogue that were repetitive and pedantic.But let me disagree With righteous indignation This abridged audio version was actually quite streamlined and moved along quickly The narration was decent, too.I hereby posit that this book is a microcosm of science fiction, and it represents exactly what you ll find in any other SF book.1 Good Science and Bad this book contains details on collisions between solar systems and also innovative speculation about gravitational repulsion2 Good Characters and Bad this book has a nice mixture of male and female characters from various racial backgrounds and you can read how they woodenly interact with each other unconvincingly3 Good Balance between Ideas and Action And Bad the author knew he would have to carefully balance the mind blowing ideas that the book would need to contain with gripping action and thrilling drama and the author neglected to tend to this, but luckily the audiobook producers took the time to create an abridged text for narration4 Good Overcomes Evil Is this Bad while building tension in the overall plot, the book maintains the optimistic outlook that typifies science fiction the reader knows that good will overcome and that when the conflict is resolved the resultant situations will be better for all parties involved and thus another SF book fails to achieve literary status, in which characters have to suffer and end up degraded so that readers can truly appreciate the human condition.Sarcasm aside, I did enjoy the audiobook, and will definitely seek out the full length paperback.4 stars for now

    A brand new standalone story from the grand master of science fiction must have set fandom ablaze back in 1989 but comparatively prodigious length aside this offered nothing new in the Asimov canon aside from perhaps the authors approach towards things as he faced his impending death.It s the story of Earth s early space travel, as settlers look beyond an Earth teeming with billions of unhappy people to new stars via space habitats built for a limited number in this case 60k of inhabitants A new star is discovered, a group of settlers secretly leaves and in doing so discovers that this new star could destroy Earth The entire novel leads towards an obvious climax but despite the obvious nature it still remains a page turning story thanks to the skills Asimov developed over the course of his 5 decade long career Incredibly Asimov states that he had no intention of linking this novel to his complete Foundation universe but with so many similarities and minor touches included in Nemesis I find this hard to believe, especially as he then makes mention of Marlene and Nemesis in one of his latter Foundation books.I find myself not overly impressed with this work, Asimov certainly didn t seem to adapt with the changing face of science fiction and in Nemesis he wrote what is essentially a piece of golden age science fiction in a cyberpunk writers landscape For a new author that might be a real accolade but for me it shows the weakness in Asimov s style.These complaints are quite pointless of course, any science fiction work from Asimov is appreciated and I m grateful that it was written.

    Interestingly this is the first book of Asimov s I ve read and I wasn t disappointed he turns out to be every bit the great writer I always hear he is The book is beautiful, I love how the writing style is practical enough to keep you in it s grip, but also poetic enough to give you the chance to drift around in your own thoughts whilst reading I fell in love with the characters except for Janus, okay , the setting, the time lines and the relationships between people and space, planets and survival.

    This book is the ultimate distillation of every 6 or so of the fictional Asimov books I ve read great minds get together and have lengthy discussions based on what they should do based on limited knowledge, and somehow everyone unanimously agrees on the logical course of action some weird mystical thing occurs that flies in the face of science or contradicts something he s already stated as a premise in the book

    I am sad to think that there are people who have never read Asimov who pick up this book, and then swear off all of his works because this book was SO TERRIBLE The characters are all the same, except for one or two points about them that will be drilled over and over Horrible, boring dialog If you enjoy the subject matter, great, but I really hate plots that are driven by pages and pages of conversation between two people who come to a huge revelation, some glaring fact, or solution JUST by sitting there babbling at each other The scientists of earth and rotor and the men who love them Could Asimov just work ANY harder to create repetitive boring characters Repetition Yes, marlena is ugly but really smart and can read body language and is weird That scientist chick who moved from a settlement to earth is worried about getting fat and old Crile himself is a stupid annoying man slut character The rotarian commissioner is crazy and evil Marlenas mom, is hysterical and paranoid Erythro plague
