    The Complete Roderick MOBI Û The Complete Epub / complete free, roderick free, The Complete book, The Complete Roderick PDFEPUBI had high hopes for this when I picked it up for a start I had not been disappointed by anything from the SF Masterworks series The blurb gave the impression that I would be reading something along the lines of Isaac Isimov's many books on robots or Brian Aldiss' Supertoys Last All Summer Long Instead what I got was a rather boring story filled with farcical characters making psuedo satirical comments on the state on the state of human nature or our curren

    The Complete Roderick MOBI Û The Complete Epub / complete free, roderick free, The Complete book, The Complete Roderick PDFEPUBRoderick is an AI gradually learning and evolving from his original inception in a thinktank and tanklike body to a convincing Turing test ready android Roderick solves one puzzle in each book and they both involve a kind of original thinking The first a Clue like mystery involves a reductio argument from an absurd conclusion and the second again the revision or correct interpretation of an initial assumption in face of incoherent information in one of those LSAT type pairing uestions These puzzles are very much illustrative of what he is learning from absurd humanity throughout the series Rather than making robots who think like rational humans it's robots who are rational and make sense humanity is insane as Sladek amply illustrates I think Tik Tok should be included as a kind of dark epilogue to the Roderick saga

    The Complete Roderick MOBI Û The Complete Epub / complete free, roderick free, The Complete book, The Complete Roderick PDFEPUBSladek is exactly the kind of author I look for when I'm grabbing up old science fiction paperbacks a truly original voice not simply a competent genre hack He's nearly up there with Philip K Dick Kurt Vonnegut Stanislaw Lem and the brothers Strugatsky creators of the highest caliber producing some of the most profound original fiction of the 20th century who are not always given the due they deserve because they work within the science fiction tradition albeit on the very edge This so called literary science fiction is one of the few things that can actually stimulate my mind any Sladek's voice is satirical absurd misanthropic philosophical His books are often truly hilarious but a deep pathos and emptiness subtly permeates R

    The Complete Roderick MOBI Û The Complete Epub / complete free, roderick free, The Complete book, The Complete Roderick PDFEPUBComposed of two novels Roderick and Roderick at Random the book tells the story of a robot who is programmed to learn and you see the story often from the machine's point of view as he tries to understand the world that surrounds him and particularly humanity It's a novel take on the Bildungsroman the classic story of the growth and education of a young man which starts off as a really abstract stream of consciousness story and slowly coalesces into sense Still it never makes too much sense this is after all also a deeply satirical novel about the world It's set in an unspecified future a

    The Complete Roderick MOBI Û The Complete Epub / complete free, roderick free, The Complete book, The Complete Roderick PDFEPUBMy impression is that the author started with a collection of jokes logic problems and palindromes in one column Then he started another column of modern trends that he wanted to satirise Then he put both columns in random order and attempted to write a plot that somehow linked everything together The author indulges himself further with group conversations where the dialog of one person leads directly into what someone else is saying but in such a way to twist the meaning of both statements for pages at a time A charac
