I, Robot


I now have finally read this classic collection of short stories about robots. A few of the stores in the middle were a little dry, but overall, I really enjoyed them. I'm glad I hadn't seen the movie because I had no expectations going into the book. These stories were all initially published separately, then put together with an overriding narrative to make it cohesive. The narrative is not a huge addition, but it helps explain that these stories represent the evolution of robots, from a simple playmate to worker to out-thinking us. And each story is basically a mystery about the behavior of the robots and the figuring out of which of the three laws of robotics is being followed or corrupted.
