I, Robot (Unabridged)

by Isaac Asimov

Description

They mustn't harm a human being, they must obey human orders, and they must protect their own existence...but only so long as that doesn't violate rules one and two. With these Three Laws of Robotics, humanity embarked on a bold new era of evolution that would open up enormous possibilities, and unforeseen risks. For the scientists who invented the earliest robots weren't content that their creations should remain programmed helpers, companions, and semisentient worker-machines. And soon the robots themselves, aware of their own intelligence, power, and humanity, aren't either. As humans and robots struggle to survive together, and sometimes against each other, on earth and in space, the future of both hangs in the balance. Here human men and women confront robots gone mad, telepathic robots, robot politicians, and vast robotic intelligences that may already secretly control the world. And both are asking the same questions: What is human? And is humanity obsolete?

Best Book

I love this book so much!!! It is one of the best books i have ever read plus the movie is great too. If you like sci-fi or you want to start it this is a great book to have.

Info: This book is a collection of short stories by Issac Asimov ranging from Robots on Mercury to Robots defecting from asteroid mining

Audiobook is better than the original!

Scott Brick's crisply accurate and involving reading of Asimov's novel lends "humanness" to what is otherwise a very logical and robotic group of stories. (But I mean "robotic" in the most wonderful way!) "Liar!" is a case in point: I was never too hooked on the idea of Dr. Susan Calvin having a crush, but Brick makes the situation not only realisitic but also a little heartbreaking. Brick is a veteran Stephen R. Donaldson reader, and it shows--everything he reads has emotion without sentimentality or kitsch (and certainly no annoying "sound effects" I've heard in other audiobooks). His ability to capture the narrative voice of any author he reads is nonpareil.

But of course, the reading is worth nothing if the work itself is not worthwhile. "I, Robot" is a science fiction classic of the first water: it provides food for thought, but its brilliant rat-in-a-maze construction makes reading (and listening) to it a lot of fun. "Little Lost Robot" would have made a more compelling dramatic story than the one told in the most recent film; either "Liar!" or "Robbie" might have, too. Not all the stories have held up well technologically speaking, but Asimov's created world has an enchanting simplicity that almost defies the gadget-ism of the modern world. "I, Robot" is a wonderful novel, and Scott Brick is a marvellous reader. How could you lose?

Great Story, Great narrator

Get stuck in traffic all the time. Scott Brick keeps me from going crazy. Delightful to listen to.
