Book Review: The Bicentennial Man by Isaac Asimov

The Bicentennial ManThe Bicentennial Man by Isaac Asimov
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Read for the 12 in 12 Challenge, and the Big Fun in a Little Package Novella Challenge.

This story won the 1977 Hugo, Nebula and Locus for Best Novelette.

Once again, Asimov proves his mastery of the medium of “science fiction story.” He is perhaps not at his best in longer forms of fiction (he can be pedantic) but in shorter forms, he is amazing.

This poignant tale is the story of a robot who wishes he were a man, and thus, redefines what qualifies as sentient life. A must-read for the discerning science fiction fan!
