    1. Lectura conjunta del grupo clubdelecturaPod s encontrar esta y otras rese as en mi blog.Isaac Asimov es uno de los grandes autores de la ciencia ficci n y sus obras son lectura obligada para los amantes de dicho g nero literario Algo que siempre me asombra cada vez que leo a este autor es su excepcional forma de tratar temas complejos y profundos de manera sumamente entretenida Antes de leer a Asimov ten a la idea de que sus libros eran pesad simos, llenos de datos cient ficos lo que se denomina [...]

    2. Este libro lo le por ser libro del mes en el Clubdectura, aparte de que tambi n era un debe El hombre bicentenario y otros cuentos resulto ser un libro ligero, aunque sinceramente esperaba que fuera m s pesado por su contenido sobre rob tica y ciencias, supo mantener el hilo de inter s Tengo alguna que otra historia favorita, as que, en cuanto pueda subir una rese a m s detallada en mi blog.

    3. Le este libro porque fue el elegido para el clubdelectura, realmente solo hac a falta leer un libro de Asimov que tuviera El hombre bicentenario, y eso hice, leyendo Visiones de robot pero era necesario para m completar la lectura leyendo los cuentos que tiene esta recopilaci n y no posee la otra.Aunque considero que Visiones de robot es superior a esta recopilaci n, puedo decir con mucho gusto que me ha encantado leer a Asimov Nunca antes lo hab a tocado, admito que le ten a mucho miedo, ahora [...]

    4. Ah the temptation of reading Asimov short stories is always a hard one to resist This is another classic collection which for me I think sums up a lot of what made Asimov and his Robots so famous the title story I think sums it all up Asimov was determined to make the machines that think than tools and less a monster and I think although we have a long way still to go he certainly has helped us along the way.But this book is not all about robots, there is spread of all sorts from mystery to pu [...]

    5. Isaac Asimov is now my favorite author, period I would say I devoured this book, but that implies that I failed to give each short story the post reading consideration it deserved, which is entirely untrue.Every sing story was of such enormous quality writing style, characterization, plot I simply do not have the vocabulary to convey how well crafted and enjoyable every story was.Asimov s introductions, giving each story its context, were the icing on the cake So, so good Immediately searching f [...]

    6. Al final decid terminar de leerlo hoy porque probablemente ma ana no tenga tiempo En fin, c mo te hace pensar el viejo, eh Siento que no soy lo suficientemente inteligente para este libro Sin embargo, lo disfrut much simo Sobre todo ese sentido del humor tan particular suyo Qu suerte que saliera como libro del mes en Clubdelecturauy, as pude tener una excusa para sacarlo del estante y leerlo de una buena vez.Capaz que solo a m me hace gracia, pero El hombre bicentenario es mi libro n mero cien d [...]

    7. This was my first Asimov book I especially loved the title story I don t remember much of the rest.

    8. Prior to reading this book, I d only ever read one Asimov work It was the short story version of Nightfall and I very much enjoyed it, but I still didn t consider myself an Asimov fan because I knew him as the robot space opera guy and I ve never particularly enjoyed robots or space opera sci fi.As it turns out, it seems I only don t particularly enjoy robots and space opera sci fi when it s not written by Asimov This book contains twelve pieces eleven short stories and a poem and there wasn t a [...]

    9. The Bicentennial Man is a story much like The Twilight Zone s episode I Sing the Body Electric , in that it gives us a robot beyond the usual cold, sterile view of technology, a robot that becomes a member of the family All of the stories in this anthology were amazing, each one speculating yet eerily plausible at the same time.

    10. The Three Laws of Robotics 1 A robot may not injure may not injure a human being, or through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.2 A robot must obey the orders given 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 Asimov 491 Robots are made for the purpose of serving humans and following their orders From the start, Andrew Martin was never a n [...]

    11. Me han gustado sobre todo las ideas de los cuentos Creo que en su mayor a son muy originales y no muy repetitivas No soy amante de las antolog as, porque necesito meterme en la historia para disfrutar realmente y con cuentos de m ximo 30 p ginas me resulta dif cil hacerlo A n as , he disfrutado bastante leyendo este libro.Tengo que ponerle en cambio tres estrellas porque aunque hay algunos cuentos que me han gustado mucho por la historia que narraban, por sus protagonistas y por lo sorprendente [...]

    12. Nunca antes hab a le do a Asimov, y me gust mucho En estos cuentos plantea una serie de cuestiones sobre la naturaleza de lo humano y lo artificial, la religi n, las ideolog as, y en algunos aplica un humor destacable Con respecto al lenguaje cient fico, pese a que no soy muy entendida en la materia, me gust ese toque veros mil que le dio a los cuentos Son cuentos que vale la pena releer y analizar a fondo, y que me animan a leer m s de este autor en un futuro.

    13. It s a splendid short collection In it the theme short story has identity of androids Recently in Australia one android has citizenship 2017.For near the future human being must think citizenship and rights of androids

    14. Terminado El hombre bicentenario y otros cuentos por Isaac AsimovEste es un libro que lo le porque sali elegido como libro del mes en el Clubdelectura, sinceramente no era un libro que tuviera ganas de leer en este momento, y lo tom casi que como una lectura obligatoria.Cuando comenc a leerlo me sorprendi algo, pens que iba a ser mucho m s pesado de leer, pero no lo fue tanto Arrancando con el hombre bicentenario que da el t tulo al libro, fue uno de los cuentos que m s me gust , m s que nada po [...]

    15. Me pareci excelente el libro Por m s que no concuerde con la realidad y hayan unos cuantos inventos terminologicos , est todo contado de tal forma que almenos yo lo creo.Creo que Asimov es un pionero en t rminos de los futuros problemas a los que se enfrentar la humanidad No pongo duda de que los personajes afrontan problemas que ser n muy similares a los que la humanidad se enfrentar en el futuro.Tambi n me gust lo lejos que va su visi n A medida que avanzan los cuentos, vamos viendo horizontes [...]

    17. The Story is about LOVE, You can t believe how can Love feelings change the lives even the life of a robot,I read this book when I was at high school but sometime ago, I saw the movie of this story which Robbin Williams played the character of that robot I forgot the name I was really impressed.I recommend you to read the book see the movie, You ll enjoy it for sure.

    18. This was the first of Isaac Asimov s writings that I have read I liked it As with any collection like this there were some I liked Waterclap and some I didn t Stranger in Paradise The title story, Bicentennial Man, was definitely the stand out This was a very enjoyable collection and has made me curious to read Asimov.

    19. This is the first book by Asimov that I have ever read and HOW can it be that I haven t read his books before I loved it Especially the stories Feminine Intuition , That Thou art Mindful of Him , The Winnowing and The Bicentennial Man I m really looking forward to reading of his Robot stories.

    20. La ltima pregunta me dej fascinada por completo El resto de los relatos no son tan interesantes como yo habr a esperado Mi primera experiencia con Asimov y estuvo s lo bien No hab a le do nada en dos meses Me siento decepcionada conmigo misma.

    21. A typical one idea novel.Andrew the household robot discovers his creativity in crafting woodwork and making jewelry From then on, he strives to become and human, both by upgrading his positronic brain and fighting legal battles to obtain human like rights The family that employed him at first keeps supporting Andrew in his desire even though he survives all of them, because he himself becomes 200 years old.This book reminded me very much of Max Ehrlich s The Big Eye because it was equally bor [...]

    22. I read this collection because there were stories in it that were not included with The Complete Robot I will only be touching on the stories not included in I, Robot or The Complete Robot The Prime of LifeIs a Poem about how everyone thinks he is old, yet he feels young It is just pretty neat to read as it gives you some insight into the man himself and, is in its own way quite humorous.WaterclapA neat story about the conflicts between people who live in Inner and Outer Space, this shows the an [...]

    23. Half rate Hollywood reproductions aside, this short story is one of the staples of great science fiction that simply had to be written, sooner or later.The Bicentennial Man is a very simple, almost droll story in the near future, a robot finds itself instilled with the urge to become human, and lives through 200 years of slight modifications to himself while following this goal.I ve always said that good science fiction uses the unusual situations to comment on the human condition, and I couldn [...]

    24. Ejemplo general de tem ticas y estilos del prol fico autor en su obra corta G nero Relatos.Lo que nos cuenta Recopilaci n de doce relatos de Ciencia Ficci n del autor uno de ellos un poema, en realidad escritos entre 1966 y 1976, editados previamente en distintos medios, que en esta edici n van acompa ados de an cdotas y eventos relacionados con el autor y que rodearon o su concepci n, o su escritura o su publicaci n, que tratan temas tan variados como la b squeda de formas para poder comerciali [...]

    25. I m no huge fan of Assimov, though i know he s a legendary, brilliant science fiction writer I watched the movie Bicentennial Man with Robin Williams and was curious as to what the book would be like It s short, and i m not a fan of short stories, but Assimov s writing is rich and clean and he s clearly a master of sci fi The length of the story didn t hinder the character development, and although there was never what could be called pace to the story, it was entertaining and absorbing enough I [...]

    26. Hac a un tiempo que no volv a a las letras de Asimov, y me ha encantado volver a sus geniales historias.En general, los libros de relatos que leo nunca se llevan las cinco estrellas, porque siempre hay algunos que gustan m s que otros Los relatos han estado entre las tres y cinco estrellas, y mi favorito de siempre es El hombre del Bicentenario.Todos los relatos tienen alguna base de rob tica, sim embargo no siempre es lo predominante, logrando as llevarnos a lo largo de innumerables tramas de l [...]

    27. La versi n que le del libro contiene 24 relatos, de stos la mayor a tocaba temas asociados a los robots, los otros sobre viajes espaciales y de tiempo.Muchos de estos relatos mantienen nombre de las organizaciones o de personajes entre si, por lo que es posible asociarlos.Los que m s me gustaron El hombre bicentenario The Bicentennial Man Qu es el hombre That Thou Art Mindful of Him Intuici n femenina Feminine Intuition Exilio en el infierno Exile to Hell

    28. If you re expecting the book to be a better version than the movie you may or may not be disappointed The movie greatly expanded upon what was a story by Asimov Many elements of the book are portrayed fairly well in the movie, but it does take quite a few liberties.In short, an excellent read
