I, Robot
book — USA — 1950

I don`t call myself a great fan of science fiction therefore I prefer books that concern with the behaviour of human beings and the ethical part of the possible futures to the ones that describe some imaginary high technology in its finest details. This book in front of me tells a few stories from the `upcoming` history of evolution of robots. A robot-nanny, a robot that doesn`t believe in being created by humans, a robot becoming a governor etc., etc. Of course it`s not about the robots (or probably it`s not only abou the robots). It`s about the way people misjudge things, can`t accept something that`s different from them, think too much of themselves - a very popular subject in science fiction books. And still this one remains among the best achievements in the category.
