To my great surprise, I happened to win a copy of the third Robot book from the publisher (DMP) a few weeks ago. This was a series I had always been interested in - I'd heard praise from friends and read reviews - yet had never been sure if it would appeal to me. I now believe that was only because I didn't know what I'd been missing.
From the moment I opened the cover, the rich and detailed illustrations captured my attention. I was both delighted and impressed by the diversity of the stories, each one evoking a different emotion, be it humor, nostalgia or just sheer confusion. It's fun to re-read the stories and attempt to figure out not only what they mean, but what they mean to myself as well. I have since picked up the first two books and found them just as enjoyable.
Overall it's a fun, engaging and visually stunning read, and at Amazon's price is it well, well worth the investment. Give it a try. There truly is something for everyone in this series. (rated 18+)
