“Liar” Questions

Leave a comment

Setting(Time and Place)

1.) Yes I think the author describes scientific principles in the novel because it has a robot character that can read minds, Herbie.

2.) Some details from the novel that describes science is the Herbie, a robot that can talk and read minds.

Character:

3.) The characters’ are important to the action because Herbie told Dr. Susan Calvin and Peter Borgert statements to cheer them up.

4.) No, I don’t think there are any characters that are different from those in the other genres. Because it’s normal for a person to fall in love, and a person to argue with another.

Plot (Story Line):

5.) Yes, i think the plot focuses on a particular area of science because there’s a robot in the story that can talk and read minds, that’s a trope for sci-fi.

6.) I think the conflict of this story is both real and fictional because one, I don’t think a robot can read minds and it’s real because the situation between Milton Ashe and Dr. Susan Calvin are pretty much everyday lives.

Summary:

7.) This book is considered to be science fiction because again, the novel has a talking, live, and mind reading robot that can have conversations with humans.

8.) Some other thoughts I have are that it was mean for Dr. Susan Calvin to confron Herbie, he was only trying to make her and Bogert feel better, but ended up hurting them.

EPICAC Questions

Leave a comment

Setting:

1.) Yes, I think the author describes scientific principles in the novel because in this story, it has a computer that answers all sorts of questions.

2.) Some details that describe science is the computer, EPICAC it can answer your questions by typing it out on a piece of paper and can also have conversations.

Characters:

3.) The characters’ involvement in the plot and story line are that the narrator treats EPICAC as a person, having conversations with it and that EPICAC has feelings, and the narrator “gossips” with it.

4.) The characters are important to the action because it explains how EPICAC works and what the narrator does to it, treating it like a person, a machine, etc.

Plot (Story Line):

5.) The plot does focus on a particular area of science because they have a “talking” computer, which helps people with their economic problems.

6.) I think the conflict is real because I think it’s possible for scientists to invent a computer that answers questions. Some examples the narrator talks with it, not really asking questions, just having a chat. And plus, the computer displays feelings when it falls in love with Pat, after writing those poems to her.

Summary:

7.) I think the author chose to write about this incident is maybe they had a similar experience, asking someone to do something for them, and that person taking credit instead.

8.) Some other thoughts I had were when EPICAC killed itself and yet left 500 poems for the narrator and his wife. I thought is was sad for EPICAC being killed and yet thought of his friend’s happiness.

Question: Would you live in the setting of your book?

Yes, because the area where the Penderwicks live seems very exquisite and fun. I especially want to explore all the hidden passages such as the tunnel, a closet, etc. And plus, it’s half way through the country where I live too! I always wanted to travel far, far away from my home again!
