They are in your house. They are in your car. They are in the skies…Now they’re coming for you. In the near future, at a moment no one will notice, all the dazzling technology that runs our world will unite and turn against us. Taking on the persona of a shy human boy, a childlike but massively powerful artificial intelligence known as Archos comes online and assumes control over the global network of machines that regulate everything from transportation to utilities, defense and communication. In the months leading up to this, sporadic glitches are noticed by a handful of unconnected humans – a single mother disconcerted by her daughter’s menacing “smart” toys, a lonely Japanese bachelor who is victimized by his domestic robot companion, an isolated U.S. soldier who witnesses a ‘pacification unit’ go haywire – but most are unaware of the growing rebellion until it is too late. When the Robot War ignites -- at a moment known later as Zero Hour -- humankind will be both decimated and, possibly, for the first time in history, united. Robopocalypse is a brilliantly conceived action-filled epic, a terrifying story with heart-stopping implications for the real technology all around us…and an entertaining and engaging thriller unlike anything else written in years.

Some may like this format, some don’t. I’m thinking that’s one of the deciding factors as to whether a reader will l...

1.0 The fuck???
DNF I think I've read thirty pages of this, put the book down, and said "never again". This is probably my personal record that I gave up on the book. I don't exactly know what it is. The premise sounds great, the title, the cover, everything is great, except from what's inside the book. In those ...

1.0 Robopocalypse
The digital age has been a boon for many would-be authors and self publishing has allowed many authors to find an audience they might not have gained in previous eras. Unfortunately, while this has allowed some great authors a chance to have their work published and to make a living from writing, it...

0.0 Robopocalypse - Daniel H. Wilson
I'm on page 161 of 347 of Robopocalypse: Repeated fat-shaming, women relegated to wife/mother/innocent child, stereotyped Afghani and Osage characters, clever white guys to the rescue. Wilson knows a lot about robotics and bupkis about people. I've just read too many 'pocalypse stories in which the ...
