Goodreads: I, Robot

I, Robot I, Robot by Isaac Asimov

My review

rating: 2 of 5 stars
Groundbreaking at the time, to be sure, but the fact that it was written in the 40s & 50s makes its vision of the future not just wrong but completely silly. Not to mention all the "swell" lingo we all use in the year 2003 on Venus. Aasimov does well at poking holes and finding loops in his own three laws of robot behavior, which is an interesting ethics/logic exercise; it's just buried in story that I had trouble caring about.
