I, Robot.  Not that impressed.  More random stories than actual plot.  Now I'm reading Something Wicked this Way Comes by Ray Bradbury.  I'm loving it so far.  I kind of reminds me of Needful Things by Stephen King.

I've recently taken to reading short stories as I don't have much time for full-fledged books right now.

The last one of those I read was The Lottery by Shirley Jackson.  It's pretty messed up but a good read, though.

I read one of her short stories called "The Possiblity of Evil".  It was quite interesting.

Something Wicked this Way Comes
We had to do a whole creative writing piece on that.

I can't remember fully, but it was one of Clarkson's collections

I, Robot.  Not that impressed.  More random stories than actual plot.

They aren't random stories. Each one illustrates a different effect/consequence of intelligent robots interacting with human society or aspects of human society and serves to sort of explain how the world got to the state it's in at the end of the book, with the robots making major decisions for our species. Did you see the movie first and expect something like that?

I have not seen the movie, although I reckon they made it more continuous.  I know they aren't exactly random stories.  It's just that I'd rather like it be more continuous.  Just a style difference in interest.  Other than that, it wasn't too bad.

Love that book.  Truly fantastical.  I've read it twice.

Now I'm reading From the Dust Returned by Ray Bradbury.

I enjoyed Brave New World.  Dystopian and fantasy novels are my thing.

I'm currently reading through LOTR: Fellowship of the ring.

Once i'm done I have the other two books to read and then 4 Mass Effect books.

Recently I've read the Hobbit and The Most Dangerous Game.

I've always wanted to read the Silmarillion, but never had the chance.  I'll see if it's at my library the next time I check.
