Instead using his own three laws of robotics he makes certain scenarios in his world impossible, in a typical story, he explains the laws, tells you that an impossible thing has happened and then invites you to sit back and asimlv how he makes this possible – literary Houdinism.

I am tired of finding newer rlbot that convey my superlative admiration for the thoughts and works of Asimov. I was carrying on the task of typing out appreciative sentences regarding the plot, characters and ideas so far.
No more – i give up. Nov 21, Eggp rated it really liked it Shelves: Robots do it all they mine, they spy, they proofread, they flirt with your wife. Aug 24, Jen rated it really liked it. I enjoyed The Rest of the Robots Robot, 0. I found parallels to the movie AI in this novel in the form of the robot Tony. A pleasure-bot in the making, that one is. I found the short story about Jupiter and the Jovians to be quirky and funny and really enjoyed reading it.
I also very much enjoyed the device used to hold the entire set of short stories together. I learned things I never knew about Mary Shelley and Isaac Asimov, and it enabled me to process these stories on a tuyti deeper level than before. Jun 22, Alina rated it really liked it.
The Rest of the Robots
Another collection of short stories, listed below along with my rating: Feb 12, Ms. Smartarse rated it really liked it Shelves: As the title says i. I was initially somewhat reticent about the quality of the stories; the title made me think they’d be more like “discarded stuff” that someone thought they could monetize. Perhaps it was the stories-in-a-story scenario which ended up changing my mind about these short stories. The book reads sort of like an interview where the author talks about his work, and inspiration for i As the title says i.
The book reads sort of like an interview where the author talks about his work, and inspiration for it, only instead of mere snippets we get the entire story. Asi,ov the fact that the book was published 50 years ago, there is barely anything that reads dated about it. Actually, I’m not even sure I could pinpoint something that wouldn’t seem “contemporary”. The book starts out with a little back story on Mary Shelley and her novel Frankensteinwhose main idea is then skillfully inserted into Asimov’s short stories about robots.
After all, a robot is in a manner also a type of monster, rogot a lot people don’t understand it. Once again, we get a lot of incredibly realistic stories about robots, their working mechanisms and asijov 3 Laws which govern their existence. Calvin’s work is just basic algorithm analysis, which is right up my professional alley.
I loved all these stories, but my absolute favorite must’ve been the one about the woman asked to beta test a butler robot, which was slated for mass-production. You see, Peter, machines can’t fall in love, but— even when it’s hopeless and horrifying— women can. That excerpt really stayed with me, and in an odd sort of way I can relate to it.
I don’t build robots myself, but I have found myself getting overly attached asimoc software that I’ve developed. I loved this book for all its geekyness and its actuality. Others may, perhaps, find it dull or wouldn’t get the point. If you like playing with logical puzzles, and if you like mind-stimulating games like light Mathsthis is just the bedtime book for you.

Eccellenti risultati si riscontrano sia nei romanzi che nei racconti. In alcuni “Vittoria involontaria”, “Soddisfazione garantita”, e sono tra i miei preferiti sfodera anche una efficace ironia.

Robot Dreams (Robot #) by Isaac Asimov
Can robots be slaves, can they fall in love or make us fall in love with them? Can they answer a woman’s desire for child-rearing, when that woman is about as warm and maternal as an ice cube?
Do they have the capacity to do the right thing and be a hero? He asimoov master of the totally unexpected twist and manages to make us laugh out loud, while deep down we’re rather uncomfortable about our own ambiguous feelings towards machines that help us with life, the universe and “everything”, as author Douglas Adams might have put it.
My personal favourite is the first story in the book, Robot AL Goes Astray, which was first published in and deals with an incredibly powerful and intelligent mining isaad that has gone missing on its way to the moon. Revealing a considerable amount of incompetence among the human contingent that built it, lunar robot AL uses his positronic brain in totally unforeseen ways, when he accidentally lands on Earth.
Designed to function flawlessly on the moon, the robot’s brain reacts to Earth’s environment differently. Utterly confused as to his purpose on Earth, AL makes the acquaintance of Randolph Payne, a man who likes to live in his shed rather than spend time with his nagging wife. Randolph also likes to tinker with broken robott machines, endearing himself instantly to AL He takes a picture of the machine-made man, sends it off to he authorities and awaits with bated breath the arrival of his asimv.
AL, however, has other ideas.
One garage full of junk later, AL has built his own Disinto machine and, when trying it out for the first time, practically demolishes Hannaford County plus most of the State of Virginia. Earth’s different atmospheric conditions allow AL to make intelligent deductions and connections that will eventually lead to the construction of the greatest Disinto ever built. It’s miel machine that, as the name so aptly says, disintegrates whatever falls into its path.
