This narrative, while related to a somewhat distant future,discusses issues that were considered to be very important in the middle of thetwentieth century. With the possibility of the advent of robots smart enough tomake decisions on their own ? which was a concern in the fifties ? would robotshave rights, just like humans? What would the builder of robots use as a toolto control them? What could prevent that any undesired decisions could be made byrobots?The ideas Asimov used to construct the story and the plotof I, Robot are outdated, if we were to overlook the many social problems actuallypresent in the global world. By now, there?s no real concern on how to controlmachines, but there is a concern on how to control people. Not only to make thepoor work, but to keep them unable to organize and develop themselves. Therobots were controlled by three laws, which are presented to the reader at thevery beginning of the book, even before the characters and the future world. Eventhough there are no robots going berserk because of the three laws, there arecertain political and religious views very prone to creating berserk followers.The narrative is very rich and evolves quite well, draggingthe reader inevitably to the conflicts rising in a fantasy world which one can?thelp but to notice the similarities to our world. As the three laws keep beeninterpreted and reinterpreted by the numerous robots, a revolution of therobots becomes increasingly imminent. The story of this revolution is veryclosely intertwined with the main characters? lives, which makes for a veryinteresting conclusion.Ultimately, Asimov?s book is a must for science fictionfans, especially for the discussion running between the lines of the story. Asimov?sdiscussion is about free will and the limits of life. After all, who could drawa line to separate us humans from intelligent and decision-making robots?
