In My Mailbox (14)

Welcome to this weeks IMM!
In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren.

This week I got:
I, Robot - Isaac Asimov (Amazon/Goodreads)
I, Robot (Robot, #1)
The three laws of Robotics:1) A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm2) A robot must obey orders givein to it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.3) A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
With this, Asimov changed our perception of robots forever when he formulated the laws governing their behavior. In I, Robot, Asimov chronicles the development of the robot through a series of interlinked stories: from its primitive origins in the present to its ultimate perfection in the not-so-distant future--a future in which humanity itself may be rendered obsolete.
Here are stories of robots gone mad, of mind-read robots, and robots with a sense of humor. Of robot politicians, and robots who secretly run the world--all told with the dramatic blend of science fact & science fiction that became Asmiov's trademark.
It has been a slow week for me, but I'm always happy to get a new book! This one I got for my schools book club. It's pretty interesting so far and I can't wait to see the movie and compare them!!!

That's all from me this week.
What Did You Get In You Mailbox?

  3. Never read that one or saw the movie. But I do enjoy reading movie adaptation books! Whether the book came first or last, I do tend to read my "movies"!
