Why I Like It

Asimov strikes his futurist tone again, presenting the predictability of human action and society in a compelling fashion that instead of making you dread your species and our inherent nature, embrace it and realize that it is because of our inherent goodness that we survive, not our supposed, “individutality,” for free will. We survive because we care about one another. That, and because of the robots, the loving robots.

What a One-Star Review Thought

…It is awful, truly one of the worst books that I’ve ever read…Good writing does not not to be defended like this, and the need to defend a book in this way prety much proves that it is a substandard work.

  1. Strange that so many nice books got such crappy ratings. I do agree with the rating for Jonathan Strange…starts off promising, but really slow and wordy.

    Just stumbled on your blog today from my Tag Surfer…really enjoying reading your posts 🙂

  2. I am glad you like my blog so far! I enjoy comments and I enjoy new readers just as much. Your blog seems interesting as well, and I will make sure to keep up on it!

    Jon,

    If you like Le Guin you should read her new book Lavinia. It is the Aeneid from the point of view of the Latins. I thought it was very interesting. Let me know if you want a copy of it.
