Going to the dentist and having root canal would sound more appealing than being subjected to reading this book. As it was required reading by our school, may I say, it put a damper on the summer. The last story, in the series, was the biggest yawn of all, and if it wasn't for coffee, I would have nodded off completely. (Two thumbs down on this one.)

This book was terrible, plain and simple! I couldn't imagine anyone else having to suffer through reading I, Robot. Its really a piece of trash.

OK, for the life of me, I cannot understand how Asimov has come to be revered as a great of science fiction. The dialog in this book is so overly simplistic one would think it's targeted for a grade school student. (Hmmm...On second thought, that's an insult to all grade-schoolers out there.) Characters are predictably dramatic, and the plots (yes, plots...this is a series of short stories, not a novel) definitely cross the line (and make leaps and bounds into the land) of ludicrousness. Case in point: The robot that reads minds, and has a conversation with a roboticist about the fact that she's in love with another roboticist. (Are you serious here, Izzy?!!!)
In short, don't buy this garbage. Opt for any of Arthur C. Clarke's books instead. (Childhood's End, for example, would be an excellent alternative.)
