R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots)

eBook (PDF), 77 Pages
(1 Ratings)
Price: $0.99
The Czech playwright, Karel Capek, wrote his play ROSSUM'S UNIVERSAL ROBOTS in the 1920's. Capek coined the word 'robot' in this play to indicate mechanical men. Now, it's a house-hold word and technical term. R.U.R. is not only a historical moment in the world of science fiction, but also a very engrossing play.

    "As expected, but the formating was a bit rough." The book itself is nice and with a lovely cover, but the formatting of the text is a bit rough. (I received a "The creator of this content has not verified its formatting. Lulu cannot cancel orders, accept returns or provide refunds." when ordering, so it wasn't wholly unexpected.) Here's a couple of examples, with the first broken-line one happening often for the "Enter"s and "Exit"s and so on in the book... [Enter DOMIN.] and... RADIUS Slaughter and DOMINation are necessary if you would be human beings. Read history. That last one got an unintentional laugh though, (DOMIN being a character in the play), so a value-for-money mis-formatting in its case! The play's fun too, so despite the formatting problems, I'm generally happy with the purchase.
