Excellent story, read it in one go. Really like the way the future/present has been broken up into territories - very Asimov-like, but you made it your own. Really liked the action, police work, history of the main character and his family, and the development of technology, and how it differs territory to territory.
You're really making want to read more robot stuff. Time to dust off the Asimov collection... Unless you've got more :)

I like Doctorow a lot. I like his making his work available for free download even more. I don't know if he thinks of himself as a Libertarian but he's a man after my own heart.

Doctorow surprised me as a writer with a style of his own. I have enjoyed all of the stories in this book. Give him a chance and read anything of his you can find. I don't think you will be disappointed no matter what type of writing you prefer. He is a "keeper".

Just read this novella. It was well-written and an enjoyable read, with numerous surprises. I am a big fan of Asimov's "robot" books, and this is not an attempt to copy his style, but rather a melding of the social issues that could come from technology, set in one possible future filled with robots obeying Asimov's Laws of Robotics, coupled with a healthy dose of George Orwell's "1984". Well worth the read!

RE: the previous comment, this is a book of novellas, "I, Robot" is one of them. Take a look at the Amazon.com listing for a full table of contents: http://www.amazon.com/Overclocked-Stories-Present-Cory-Doctorow/dp/1560259817

The book is listed as /I, Robot/ but it is actually /Overclocked/.
