I, Robot by Issac Asimov is nothing like the movie. It is a collection of short stories. Nevertheless, it is certainly worth a read because it is (was) original in its time and sets out for the very first time the laws used in the movie (to harm no human).

I haven't ever seen the movie because I always believe in reading the book first if possible. This one was recommended to be many times by others; however most recently by my sufficient other who is a sci-fi aficionado. I will be getting to this one shortly. Thanks for the comment and information :-D

I thought that in its own way, I, Robot (book) was much more sinister than the movie.

How did you like Anansi Boys? That's one that sounded interesting to me, but I haven't gotten to yet. I *can* recommend The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood, though. Wonderful descriptive language!!

Sorry it's taken me soo long to respond. I still haven't finished Anansi Boys believe it or not. I like it, but it didn't draw me in like American Gods or Neverwhere has. I would recommend listening to the audiobook though because Lenny Henry a fantastic job reading it that whenever I pick up the book to continue where I left off all I can hear is his voice, so I will probably finish it via audiobook!
