Re: What are you reading?
^Also agree on Asimov characters vs ideas, esp Foundation trilogy. Maybe why film adaptation been so tricky so far. But I do like some of the Robot characters: Dr Susan Calvin, Elijah Bailey and R. Daneel Olivaw.
Currently reading The Diving Pool
by Yoko Ogawa. Weird, but beautifully and economically written.
