I, Robot

Tonight I finished reading Isaac Asimov’s acclaimed collection of short stories: I, Robot. This is my introduction to Asimov’s writing but I enjoy it already. While I enjoyed his style of writing, I was most impressed by the heady concepts which I found pervaded the anthology. Besides the in-depth consideration of the psychology of robotic machines, we’re presented with a picture of the human impact of the presence of such technology from its near introduction to its startling potential future.

At a brief 256 pages (or 192 in my 70’s edition belonging to my wife’s late father) it makes for a quick read of all stories. Now I feel like it’s but a small taste to whet my appetite for more of Asimov’s work.
