Publisher's Summary

N8-C, better known as Nate, has been Manhattan Hasbro Hospital's resident robot for more than 20 years. A prototype, humanoid in appearance, he was created to interact with people. While some staff accepted working alongside an anthropomorphic robot, Nate's very existence terrified most people, leaving the robot utilized for menial tasks and generally ignored. Until one of the hospital's physicians is found brutally murdered with Nate standing over the corpse, a blood-smeared utility bar clutched in his hand.

As designer and programmer of Nate's positronic brain, Lawrence Robertson is responsible for his creation's actions and arrested for the crime. Susan Calvin knows the Three Laws of Robotics make it impossible for Nate to harm a human being. But to prove both Nate's and Lawrence's innocence, she has to consider the possibility that someone somehow manipulated the laws to commit murder....

Featured Article: The Most Stellar Sci-Fi Authors of All Time


Science fiction is a genre as diverse as you can imagine. There are stories that take place in deep space, often depicting teams exploring or running away from something; stories that focus on life at the most cellular level, such as a pandemic tale; and stories that take place in times that feel similar to our own. Depicting themes of existentialism, philosophy, hubris, and personal and historical trauma, sci-fi has a cadre of topics and moods.

Bittersweet

Amazing book but very depressing! It's the slap in the face I know I needed!

not as I remembered

I have read all 3 books in this series, and I have a significantly different memory of what the third book involved. I was expecting logic and robots, and what I got was trite garbage. I'll have to reread my physical book to see if it was my memory that is skewed, or if they butchered a great story.

okay, if you can get past the author's didacticism

It starts out fairly interesting. it quickly becomes overshadowed by the authors motives which are to preach their personal moral philosophy.

Not bad, though I thought it was the Original

Good, fast paced story telling with references to current headlines artfully written into the narrative. I could definitely tell it was written from a woman's perspective ("the rippling muscles of his six-pack abdomen" sheesh), but still well done, with excellent diction and spectacular detail. A tad predictable, but I will still be back for books 2 and 3.

It's not Asimov,but I loved it

If you could sum up Isaac Asimov's I, Robot in three words, what would they be?

Medical robopsychomystery

What did you like best about this story?

I love medical mysteries and Asimov's robo-mysteries. This combines the two

What about Alma Cuervo’s performance did you like?

It's nice to have a narrator who can correctly pronounce the medical terminology. It's a little thing, but there have been so many that did not. She also does a good job differentiating between characters. She has a voice that's makes listening a pleasure

Any additional comments?

Great book, good plot, likable characters.
