    One thought on “I, Robot”

    1. This story is of course fiction. It was the story in Chicago in 2035. i,ROBOT must not harm a human being, they must obey human orders, and they must protect their own existence. That is the purpose for making i,ROBOT.There are three kinds of laws for robot. Law 1 is a robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. Law 2 is a root must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the first Law.The main character [...]

    2. It took me a while to get into this book. It starts off interesting though, as it looks like something hit the fan and the world is going to doom. Although readers may tend to wonder what this all has to do with a Japanese police officer who has a terrible OCD issue, well you just have to read along to connect the dots. To simplify it, Haruto (the police officer) attempts to solve a case, but finds out it leads to a much bigger and badder fish that are out to cause a lot more chaos and havok tha [...]

    3. With two exceptions, I enjoyed this book a great deal. The two exceptions are the title and the epilogue. The latter was cliched and unnecessary. The former was throwing down the gauntlet to the other books [and the film:] which had previously used the title, and I think that was a bad idea. While this story does turn the Asimov and Will Smith versions on their heads to some extent thematically, it also makes the reader compare the quality of the story. Howard S. Smith is no Isaac Asimov, althou [...]

    4. The cover says “better than both of these stories [Asimov’s books or the 2004 movie] put together”. This led me to believe there would be robot characters and they would be a good percentage of the story. That way not to be. Most of the story was about wars (or war planning) in Japan and Israel. There were some robots as Japan sold their robots to Israel. I did like that there were diagrams of the robots and a good bit of detail about how things work.There was a glossary of the many techni [...]

    5. I picked this book up at WorldCon 2008 as an advance copy, and I have to say I really enjoyed it. It is set in the not too distant future with advanced technology that is almost possible. A Japanese man who is a detective, but people call him a "robot" well, it's almost possible! I'm not saying that there's a surprise twist near the end or anything, but I do highly recommend this book!

    6. This starts out as a political thriller about a coming war between Iran and Lebanon versus Israel. Then there's a Japanese police inspector investigating a murder. I never understood the connection between the two storylines. Not my sort of book at all. This was an ARC, so I hate giving it a bad review, but I just couldn't force myself to read it.
