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.
