I chose "I, Robot" specifically because I expected it to embellish the current movie version that is currently playing at theatres, starring Will Smith. Was I in for a surprise and a disappointment! Rather that getting a typically better and more detailed book version of the current movie I find that the book and the movie have virtually nothing in common. Other than that it was a fairly decent variety of short-stories about life with robots. Disappointing either way.
Without a doubt, when comparing this "sequel" against Ender's Game (which can't be helped, as it is an obvious continuation) one cannot help but become disenchanted...it is tedious and has convinced me to go no further in the saga. Orson Scott Card needs to move on and stop playing his "Ender" victory for all it's worth because it has truly become old and begins to cheapen his potential for additional brilliant works of fiction.
An up-to-date, superior thriller, which is beautifully read, and technically saavy. A futuristic treasure hunt focused in the world of intuitive marketing, brand recognition, cyberpunk and subculture video footage, masterfully inter-woven with humor, fashion, betrayal, technological cutting-edge snippets, corporate espionage, and jet-set wealth and globe hopping. It's a fast paced read, beatifully done by Shelly Frasier and immensely enjoyable!
