[40] I, Robot by Isaac Asimov

Isaac Asimov, hats off to you. This is a pretty good Science Fiction novel by one of the top men in the genre. Will I read anything else by Asimov in the future? Well, if there's another book of his on the list. Otherwise, probably not, due to the other 961 books I have left to read from the list.

While this book is good, I have another topic to speak on. The movie. Where did the movie come from? It has nothing to do with this book whatsoever. You could 're-make' it, and it would be an entirely different movie. It infuriates me. The movie would be quite amusing as well, especially if they put Speedy in it. My favourite robot in the book was probably Speedy, because what he does is hilarious. I laughed out loud several times.

I've got not much else to say on the topic of this book, read it for yourself, especially if you're interested in robots, science-fiction or space in general. Although a little dated, it is still a great story.

Next up: Not entirely sure, going to work that one out about now.

Also, woot 4% done! Well, pretty much. Why did it have to be 1001? Was 1000 not enough for you? 1000 would at least make the percentage even.

I too adore Asimov and his Robots; they are Seriously Awesome!

In order of looks:
Daneel Olivaw
Jander Panell
Giskard Reventlov
Andrew Martin
Sundry others such as Cutie, Nestor, Speedy, Lenny...

And the stories are pretty good too; transport me to a kinder world full of gentle Robots. I really envy Susan Calvin!

Yes, I'd love to see a world like that. I think it would be very interesting. :D
