So, I turn the page and there it is a note about the author (IE: the end of a novel) and I'm like... W.. T.. F... You know what I mean? I, Robot is one giant prologue for like four following books. I'm not mad that its several book long story, I'm mad that it isn't clearly made out to be so on the cover or something. You know that way I could buy all the books at once, and continue as I wish. But no, Now I have to wait till morning so I can go to a store and buy the next ones. I'm so anctious to continue the story.

Any one else feel really mad when they got to the end of Isaac Asimov's I, Robot?

wall-mart has it, thats where I got mine, and it's open 24hours. I'm just not sure it has the other books.

cool, i'm planning on going to see the movie with some friends when it hits theatres, so if I like the movie I'll probably get the books too.

From what i've seen of the trailer, not only is the movie nothing like the book, but its actually the complete opposite of what Asimov set out to do.

- I love the books btw.

yes indeed..... I suggest everyone read the conversation on SomethingAwful.com's forums(GBS section, so it is free to read).

Basically the movie I,Robot was the slapping on of "I, Robot"(by the changing of names, and the adding...barely... of the three laws of robotics) onto a steaming pile of dog-crap called I believe "Hard-Wired".

basically, save the 8 dollars you would spend on a ticket and put it towards buying the series of books.

Hah, I knew that movie looked like crap! I couldn't believe it when I heard "I, robot" was a classic by Asimov.

Yeah... The previews really didn't hide the fact that the movie has no relation to the book... I'm gonna have to read that one again. It's been a while. :)

Just buy an account there. They're the best forums I've seen on the Internet so far, and it's only $10.

it's pretty much always on in the background (or foreground ;)) of what I'm doing.
