Synopsis:

A large collection of short stories from Isaac Asimov.

 

My Thoughts:

Unfortunately, most of these stories I had already read. So there was almost nothing new and without the shiny of “new”, I can’t say that Asimov’s stories are all that engaging.

Nothing is bad or boring. They just aren’t the type of stories that I want to read again and again. Most of them have a “hook” at the end and if you already know that hook the whole story loses most of its punch. I also found that a large portion of these were longer stories than in volume 1.

I have seen references to a 3rd volume of short stories but as far as I can tell, they were never published. That is too bad because I would like to see a finishing up of all of Asimov’s stories.
