The robots were a Stakhanovite creation--built in tens of thousands in Soviet Russia to assist and inspire the workers in the 1930s.

An emblem of nobility and tireless work, they yet proved inefficient, and were gradually phased out as they seized up and fell into disrepair.

Intriguing...Will continue reading for sure. First time I've ever read a "motion book", unless you count the "1000 Years of Dreams" stories from Lost Odyssey on the xbox360.

I`m always stuck at the part where the long-haired guy & the black guy-in-eyeglasses stare at each other.
