Asimov's "I, Robot" illustrated screenplay by Harlan Ellison.

Harlan Ellison's adaptation of Isaac Asimov's classic "I, Robot" stories for the screen answers many questions posed by science fiction readers for years; most notably, why nobody has ever made Asimov's trademark Robot stories into a film. The answer, as well as how Ellison came to write the screenplay, is recanted in the book's Introduction and is a fascinating story unto itself, filled with all of the elements of one of Ellison's dangerous visions-hope, fear, rage, and retribution.

Talk about I, Robot: The Illustrated Screenplay


Realistic
Whether or not you are familiar with Isaac Asimov's original masterpiece, this is a rich and satisfying telling of a great story. (Forget the movie; it has little in common with the I Robot story cycle other than that title). Ellison captures not only the content, but the soul of the work and provides the reader with a nuanced reading experience. This work is not about robots. It is about human beings struggling with universal human emotions and motivations entwined with an engaging mystery story that held my attention from the first scene to the last.

One additional observation may be useful; the format of this publication is a screenplay, not a novel. If, like me, you have never read a screenplay the camera and special effects instructions may be foreign at first. However, I quickly picked up the meaning and rhythm of these notations and found them helpful in expanding the depth and emotional power of the work. The illustrations are also excellent, well placed within the text, and beautiful in their own right, as well as adding to the dramatic effect of the text.

Enjoy it and keep it in your library. You will probably want to read it again sometime. It is that good.

With the release of the new I, Robot movie, there are probably a lot of people confused by the different versions of I, Robot that exist. If you are a fan of Isaac Asimov's works, then you should probably steer clear of the new movie starring Will Smith. Published accounts I have read have indicated that the studio acquired the rights to the I, Robot stories and then took an already existing script (having nothing to do with Asimov's stories) changed some character's names, and added the three laws of robotics. Hardly, does justice to some of the most famous science fiction stories ever written.

However, years ago, Harlan Ellison did write a screenplay for an I, Robot movie, that does keep to the spirit of the Asimov stories. In fact, in this reviewer's opinion, this screenplay ties the stories together and adds a level of emotion that make it more powerful and memorable than Asimov's original book version. The character of Susan Calvin is, little by little, given real depth - and her saga will bring a tear to your eye on more than one occasion.

Despite the fact that it is written as a screenplay, making it somewhat more awkward to read than straight prose, once you begin to read, it is impossible to put down. I read it in one sitting, in the time it took to...well...watch a movie.

Upon completion, part of me was sad that this was not the version that was filmed, for it would have been a classic movie. But, I am grateful that this illustrated screenplay version exists. Do yourself a favor and buy it. As you read, it will become your own personal blockbuster, whose images will remain in your heart and mind long after the lights come up in your local theater. And we have Harlan Ellison to thank for it.

This screenplay should be said to be "inspired" by the book _I, Robot_, since it takes the world described in Asimov's short story collection and extends it in all manner of ways. Four of Asimov's short stories appear in this book in one form or another, usually as flashbacks. The story, though, is of one reporter's quest to find robopsychologist Susan Calvin, who, in her later years, has isolated herself almost completely from the outside world. The reporter tries every avenue possible to learn more about his subject as he pursues the goal of actually interviewing her.

This is a screenplay, not a novel. Reading it takes some getting used to; it uses abbreviations freely ("CU" for close-up, etc.) and is formatted as the movie script that it is. There are color plates of illustrations based on the screenplay (perhaps from a storyboard for the proposed film?). They are numbered by scene so that the reader can find the part of the action the picture is depicting. There are also occasional black and white drawings in the main text. The illustrations are quite evocative and set the scene well.

The story is a fun read, but near the end it gets a little weird (a metaphysical contest is a little hard to decipher). But overall, I liked this take on the book and wonder how it would have looked as a movie.

I have been looking for this book for a long time. I first read it more than a decade ago when I took it out of the Miami-Dade public library. I was bowled over.

Forget the Will Smith movie made with this title. THIS is the script that should have been shot. Simply outstanding.

This is indeed "The best science fiction movie never made."

The copy I received was in perfect condition. Thank you Amazon!
you secret
It truly is the script for the best movie never made. Period.

probably not as well known as other Harlan Ellison work, so it was very appreciated by a true Ellison fan as well as an Asimov fan.

This is much more its own thing rather than a reforming of the source. Quite interesting.
Really cool!
