Behold "The Positronic Man," in which Asimov explores what it means to be human through the electronic eyes of a robot. If you’ve ever felt like your Roomba was judging your carpet choices, this book dives into those concerns but at a PhD level. Meet Andrew, a robot who has the audacity to want civil rights and has to navigate a world that's not quite ready for robot philosophers.

Andrew begins as a humble household robot and evolves to become an entity seeking individuality and respect. The legal and philosophical battles that ensue would give any courtroom drama a run for its money. It's the kind of story that SFcrowsnest readers might appreciate when they're not busy assuring their Alexa that they do, in fact, appreciate her tireless service.
