Reading on a daily basis has tapped into my imagination and interpretations of words, thoughts, sounds, emotions, landscapes, people, monsters, aliens, symbols, songs and story telling. I'm currently reading "I, Robot" by Isaac Asimov; I have read the first 93 pages and have some ideas of what robots and the human characters of these stories could look like. Big, Bronze, slow, and yet have the attribute of being emphatic of humans and their own thoughts. What is most appealing is how I can relate to Robbie, Speedy, and all the other robots express their own feelings, emotions and reasoning. These robots personalities shine out through the pages. Although, for description purposes their eyes convey none whatsoever emotions, it is in their actions that they display their true self amid their human counterparts.
Not surprisingly, The character I find equally intriguing is Dr. Calvin. She seems to be connected to almost all the robots in the story; I finished the short story named Liar! I founded it to be mysterious that a robot can read a human mind, at the same time terrifying. I can picture in my thoughts how Dr. Calvin deep lines on her face must show as she bursts into anger over a deceitful deed done the robot RB-34 has done. It left me with a good impression of the other human flaws I have of my own. To a degree, I can understand people pleasing will backfire and having the ability to read minds is a gift and a curse. Of course this is my own opinion. At the end of the story, I can't help but wonder if RB-34 was ever really a mind reader or at all or wanted to be liked.
