the card catalog: i, robot

September 7, 2009

2 notes:

  1. I've only seen the movie so I'm not sure how close it is to the book but the core idea of the 3 rules of robotics is fascinating. If the book has more of that and less of the Will Smith plotline than the book is sounding mighty appealing. Plus robots are always awesome. Beep bo beep beep.

  2. the book is entirely about the 3 rules. it's logic problem after logic problem. fascinating & wonderful. i was just so surprised by how different book and movie were. seems like the only thing they have in common is the title. the movie hardly made any use of the 3 laws except to state them. the book explores them. read it. (and if you manage to find a good cover, send me the isbn number so i can track it down!)
