Publisher's Summary

The best-selling author of the popular Renshai series, Mickey Zucker Reichert pens I, Robot: To Protect - the first in a trilogy inspired by the Isaac Asimov classic I, Robot. It’s the year 2035, and robot psychologist Dr. Susan Calvin is beginning her residency at a teaching hospital where patients are being injected with diagnostic nanobots. Before long, Susan realizes that the injections portend dire consequences - and that the nanobots are being used to facilitate a deadly scheme.

Also an intimate look at a MD first year residency

What did you love best about I, Robot?

I was expecting a typical Asimov robot story but instead experienced what it was like for Dr Calvin's first year residency. The book is a teaching experience in psychology.

What does Alma Cuervo bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Alma Cuervo put you into the life of Susan Calvin even better than what one would do in reading words on pages.

Not so much about i Robots or it's subject

Very little about the i Robot series and subject matter. But will probably continue listening to the series

Not much scifi content

Much more "romance" and "medical drama" genre than "SciFi". Set a few decades from present day but otherwise very little scifi content. The description was misleading. It had almost nothing in common with Azimof's "I, Robot". It took 8hrs of audio before the protagonist made it to the USR office! I won't be buying the the rest of this trilogy.

An old friend

What did you love best about I, Robot?

The author brings back to life an old friend, the legendary Dr. Susan Calvin. This book definitely feels like it could have been written by Isaac Asimov. In fact, I think this author is better at writing for female characters than Asimov was. Susan Calvin's character is full of warmth and a depth that it hasn't seen before. It is a must-read for Asimov fans.

What did you like best about this story?

Getting to know Dr. Susan Calvin better.

What does Alma Cuervo bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She sounds like Dr Calvin always sounded in my head.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but I had to force myself to take breaks.

Any additional comments?

I really miss Isaac Asimov. Its great that someone can add more to the Asimov experience and, in some ways, exceed it.
