    One thought on “The Bicentennial Man And Other Stories”

    1. Lectura conjunta del grupo #clubdelecturaPodés encontrar esta y otras reseñas en mi blog.Isaac Asimov es uno de los grandes autores de la ciencia ficción y sus obras son lectura obligada para los amantes de dicho género 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 tenía la idea de que sus libros eran pesadísimos, llenos de datos científicos (lo que [...]

    2. Este libro lo leí por ser libro del mes en el #Clubdectura, aparte de que también era un debe. El hombre bicentenario y otros cuentos resulto ser un libro ligero, aunque sinceramente esperaba que fuera más pesado por su contenido sobre robótica y ciencias, supo mantener el hilo de interés. Tengo alguna que otra historia favorita, así que, en cuanto pueda subiré una reseña más detallada en mi blog.

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

    4. Ah the temptation of reading more 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 more 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 m [...]

    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 search [...]

    6. Al final decidí terminar de leerlo hoy porque probablemente mañana no tenga tiempo. En fin, cómo te hace pensar el viejo, eh. Siento que no soy lo suficientemente inteligente para este libro. Sin embargo, lo disfruté muchísimo. Sobre todo ese sentido del humor tan particular suyo. Qué suerte que saliera como libro del mes en #Clubdelecturauy, así pude tener una excusa para sacarlo del estante y leerlo de una buena vez.Capaz que solo a mí me hace gracia, pero «El hombre bicentenario» es [...]

    7. 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 wa [...]

    8. 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.

    9. "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 [...]

    10. Me han gustado sobre todo las ideas de los cuentos. Creo que en su mayoría son muy originales y no muy repetitivas. No soy amante de las antologías, porque necesito meterme en la historia para disfrutar realmente y con cuentos de máximo 30 páginas me resulta difícil hacerlo. Aún así, 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 sor [...]

    11. Nunca antes había leído a Asimov, y me gustó mucho. En estos cuentos plantea una serie de cuestiones sobre la naturaleza de lo humano y lo artificial, la religión, las ideologías, y en algunos aplica un humor destacable. Con respecto al lenguaje científico, pese a que no soy muy entendida en la materia, me gustó ese toque verosímil que le dio a los cuentos. Son cuentos que vale la pena releer y analizar a fondo, y que me animan a leer más de este autor en un futuro.

    12. 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!

    13. Terminado "El hombre bicentenario y otros cuentos" por Isaac AsimovEste es un libro que lo leí porque salió elegido como “libro del mes” en el #Clubdelectura, sinceramente no era un libro que tuviera ganas de leer en este momento, y lo tomé casi que como una lectura obligatoria.Cuando comencé a leerlo me sorprendió algo, pensé que iba a ser mucho más pesado de leer, pero no lo fue… tanto. Arrancando con el hombre bicentenario que da el título al libro, fue uno de los cuentos que m [...]

    14. Me pareció excelente el libro. Por más que no concuerde con la realidad (y hayan unos cuantos inventos terminologicos), está todo contado de tal forma que (almenos yo) lo creo.Creo que Asimov es un pionero en términos de los futuros problemas a los que se enfrentará la humanidad. No pongo duda de que los personajes afrontan problemas que serán muy similares a los que la humanidad se enfrentará en el futuro.También me gustó lo lejos que va su visión. A medida que avanzan los cuentos, va [...]

    16. 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.

    17. 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 more Asimov.

    18. 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 more of his Robot stories.

    19. La última pregunta me dejó fascinada por completo. El resto de los relatos no son tan interesantes como yo habría esperado. Mi primera experiencia con Asimov y estuvo sólo bien. (No había leído nada en dos meses. Me siento decepcionada conmigo misma.)

    20. ตอนแรกกะไว้ว่าอ่านสัก 20-30 หน้าก่อน สุดท้ายอ่านจนจบเล่มเลย เนื้อเรื่องกระชับ เดินเรื่องเร็ว อ่านเข้าใจง่าย มีครบรส ทั้งหมวดวิทยาศาสตร์ สังคม จิตวิทยา กฎหมาย ฯลฯ รวมอยู่ด้วยกันคว [...]

    21. The Bicentennial Man is a robot story in Asimov’s robot-verse. It’s not about the 3 laws or the emergence of consciousness, but rather about the rights of robots and what defines us as human beings.

    22. 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 more and more 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 [...]

    23. 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, [...]

    24. 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 [...]

    25. -Ejemplo general de temáticas y estilos del prolífico autor en su obra corta.-Género. Relatos.Lo que nos cuenta. Recopilación de doce relatos de Ciencia-Ficción del autor (uno de ellos un poema, en realidad) escritos entre 1966 y 1976, editados previamente en distintos medios, que en esta edición van acompañados de anécdotas y eventos relacionados con el autor y que rodearon o su concepción, o su escritura o su publicación, que tratan temas tan variados como la búsqueda de formas para [...]

    26. 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 enoug [...]

    27. Hacía un tiempo que no volvía 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 más 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 robótica, sim embargo no siempre es lo predominante, logrando así llevarnos a lo largo de innumerables tram [...]

    28. La versión que leí del libro contiene 24 relatos, de éstos la mayoría 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 más me gustaron:- El hombre bicentenario (The Bicentennial Man)- ¿Qué es el hombre? (That Thou Art Mindful of Him!)- Intuición femenina (Feminine Intuition)- Exilio en el infierno (Exile to Hell)
