Very predictable stories. Some could be swapped with others in the collection as they were that similar. I made it to around page one hundred: Trite conversations, laughable lines, ultra-predictable plot development.

Usually short story collections are an uneven mix in quality and interest level. Not this one. Solid and original right to the end - and make sure you read the last few - this is a collection that gets better and better as you read on!

A good variety of robot stories all of which were pretty high quality. Most of the stories are really more about the impacts of artificial intelligence. The implications of that are even more massive than the robots themselves.

An excellent collection of stories about Robot, and computer, uprisings. If you cherish Futurama's Bender spouting "Death to all humans" or HAL asking Dave if there is a problem, you'll find more stories to entertain and thrill you.

Many of these stories make you wish that the author had written at novel length, always a sign of a good read.

from Daniel H. Wilson's story at the end of chapter 7.. "What's the point?" asks Stitch. "You can't stop progress, right?"
