5.0 étoiles sur 5 Un rêve de lecture 27 mai 2015
Par Olivier
Format:Poche|Achat vérifié
Imaginez un livre qui se renouvelle tout le temps, qui aille toujours un peu plus loin que l'évidence, qui flirte souvent avec l'absurde, le qu'est-ce qui se passerait si, qui est profondément humain, poétique… eh bien le voilà !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An interesting read 6 juillet 2009
Well, I had been looking for this compilation for quite sometime now. And it is quite amazing to read. Though it is a science fiction still there are certain social angle to the stories as well.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Mostly NON-robot short stories 18 juillet 2004
Par John A. Dodds - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche|Achat vérifié
I expected this to be a collection of robot stories because of the title, but only two are robot stories. They are the first two, and the first one is also a story from _I, Robot_ (which I just re-read). The second one is "Robot Dreams" from which the book takes its title, and it is another Susan Calvin robot story like those from _I, Robot_ but was written in the mid-'80s (_I, Robot_ was written 30 years earlier). It is in the same mold with the earlier stories, but with a nod to advancing technology (small computers, for instance).
Many other stories in this collection center on "Multivac," an immense computer. The name is an obvious derivative of UNIVAC, a large, vacuum-tube based computer of the early 1950s. UNIVAC became famous for predicting that Eisenhower would win the 1952 election based on early returns (against pundit predictions that Stevenson would win). That led directly to one story, "Franchise," which takes the ability to sample a small number of votes to predict a total election outcome and drives the idea to an absurd (but nevertheless interesting) extreme.
There are a variety of other stories, from ones dealing with beings without bodies to one talking about an alien medical investigator who has come to Earth to find out more about a disease. All are worth the read, and some are truly fascinating and end in very unexpected ways.
Ralph McQuarrie provides the cover illustration and several others for individual stories; they are of the style familiar to anyone who has seen original art from "Star Wars" (which he worked on). Asimov's introduction is amusing; he explains what he got right in predicting the future--and what he got spectacularly wrong. He discusses this with respect to both stories in the book (Multivac, for instance) and to other books and stories he had written decades earlier.
All in all, this book was a fun read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Why have I not heard more about this book? It's great! 15 avril 2000
Par John Petrie - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is a collection of Asimov's probably 20 best short stories. Only three of the stories have anything to do with robots, unless you consider computers and talking cars robots.
This is easily one of the best books I have ever read. I read it in between his robot novels and Foundation novels, and it holds its own quite well against those.
Only one of the stories is in any other collection I know of. "Jokester," "The Billiard Ball," and "The Last Answer" are some excellent ones, but I agree that "The Last Question" (as it is named in my book; not "Final Question") is the best story I have ever read. Anybody remotely interested in science fiction at all should definitely buy this book. Before long you will be an Asimov fan for life.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Robot Dreams: Food of the Gods 14 août 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
I am generally not one to rant and rave about a book, but Robot Dreams and in particular the story entitled 'The Final Question', is the exception. I ordinarily hesitate to sing the praises of something on the assumption that there might be something out there that I haven't read that is better; however, The Final Question is without any shadow of a doubt, the best short story I have ever read.

Let me elucidate. Starting with the seemingly innocuous question, "Can entropy be reversed?", Asimov proceeds, in a style all his own, to turn the reader's world upside down. When you've finished this story, you can do nothing but close the cover and sit and think for a while. In a piece that is a textbook example of the way a short story should be written, Mr. Asimov somehow manages to address that most basic of all questions, "What is the nature of our Universe, and by extension, what is the nature of ourselves?"

As an avid reader on all subjects, I enjoy being challenged by what I read but, speaking politely, the climax of this story, barely more than 15 pages in length, knocked me flat on my behind. No story I have read, before or since, has managed to turn life's basics quite so much on their ear as did this one.

I read somewhere that Mr. Asimov always felt that this was his favourite piece of writing, and I have no problem understanding why.

Read it...If you thought your world was dark before, I guarantee that "The Final Question", indeed, all of "Robot Dreams", will shed some light on the subject.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Avoid the Kindle edition 10 juillet 2012
Par Gustav Bertram - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The text is classic, but the Kindle edition of this book is full of OCR errors.

The publishers should spend a bit more time proof-reading the text to ensure it matches the paper version. There are numerous instances of "Ralson" being mistakenly written as "RaIson", and in some cases "F.B.I." being written as "EB.I.".

It distracts from the reading a lot.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the best Short Story Collections Ever--Of Any Genre 1 octobre 2008
Par Benjamin Thomas - Publié sur Amazon.com
I have read many short story collections from many different authors, Sci-Fi and otherwise. Usually, I am happy to find two or three gems in the whole collection while I feel I have to slog my way through the rest. Not so with this collection! I am happy to report that there is not a single dud here. And, in fact, some of my all time favorite short stories are included.

I confess to not being an Asimov super fan. Most of his novels are OK, although don't seem to withstand the test of time too well. So it was with some trepidation that I approached this volume. The book begins with Dr Asimov's introduction where he describes his hits and misses regarding his attempts to incorporate his predictions of the future. This is truly enjoyable to read. And the stories are spot on. Each is thought provoking, just as quality science fiction should be. I highly recommend you give this one a try!
