Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the twenty-third century pioneers have escaped the crowded earth for life in self-sustaining orbital colonies.  One of the colonies, Rotor, has broken away from the solar system to create its own renegade utopia around an unknown red star two light-years from Earth:  a star named Nemesis.  Now a fifteen-year-old Rotorian girl has learned of the dire threat that nemesis poses to Earth's people--but she is prevented from warning them.  Soon she will realize that Nemesis endangers Rotor as well.  And so it will be up to her alone to save both Earth and Rotor as--drawn inexorably by Nemesis, the death star--they hurtle toward certain disaster.

Synopsis:

A gripping tale of high adventure, action, and mystery, Nemesis is Grand Master Isaac Asimov at his best--and destined to become a classic for many years to come.

This was my first Isaac Asimov book. I was moderately familiar with the author, having seen the movie "I, Robot," but the wealth of detail and the richness of his plot, coupled with the simple style of writing was much beyond any other science fiction author I have ever read. Asimov is truly the "Father of Modern Science Fiction", and Grand Master of the craft. A very enchanting, thought-provoking read. They just don't write them like they used to!
