Robopocalypse by Daniel H. Wilson

 

Praise

“It’s terrific page-turning fun.”–Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly

“Daniel H. Wilson’s Robopocalypse is…an ingenious, instantly visual story of war between humans and robots.” – Janet Maslin, New York Times

“It’ll be scarier than “Jaws”: We don’t have to go in the water, but we all have to use gadgets.”–Wall Street Journal

“A superbly entertaining thriller…[Robopocalypse has] everything you’d want in a beach book.” – Richmond Times-Dispatch

“Robopocalypse is the kind of robot uprising novel that could only have been written in an era when robots are becoming an ordinary part of our lives. This isn’t speculation about a far-future world full of incomprehensible synthetic beings. It’s five minutes into the future of our Earth, full of the robots we take for granted. If you want a rip-roaring good read this summer, Robopocalypse is your book.”–io9.com

“You’re swept away against your will… a riveting page turner.” — Associated Press

“Things pop along at a wonderfully breakneck pace, and by letting his characters reveal themselves through their actions, Wilson creates characters that spring to life. Vigorous, smart and gripping.” —Kirkus

“A brilliantly conceived thriller that could well become horrific reality. A captivating tale, Robopocalypse will grip your imagination from the first word to the last, on a wild rip you won’t soon forget. What a read…unlike anything I’ve read before.” —Clive Cussler, New York Times bestselling author

“An Andromeda Strain for the new century, this is visionary fiction at its best: harrowing, brilliantly rendered, and far, far too believable.”–Lincoln Child, New York Times bestselling author of Deep Storm

“Robopocalypse reminded me of Michael Crichton when he was young and the best in the business. This novel is brilliant, beautifully conceived, beautifully written (high-five, Dr. Wilson)…but what makes it is the humanity. Wilson doesn’t waste his time writing about ‘things,’ he’s writing about human beings — fear, love, courage, hope. I loved it.” —Robert Crais, New York Times bestselling author of The Sentry

 

Review

There is a New War igniting by the very machines that were serving humans ‘Robots.’ Is there any hope for the human race and what weapon could match the ability of the artificial intelligence?
We had zombies with World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War and vampires with The Strain nows the time for something new and fresh setting a new trend, evil robots. A writer who has a Ph.D in Robotics has created a gauntlet race of time to a concluding event that will change the path of robots and humans forever. Written in neat chapters of different accounts that chart the unraveling of war from the artificial intelligence Archos, unleashing unrelenting destruction upon humans via it’s robots. The writing flows well and does well transferring the words to your thought imagery, as you ride along the train as time zero’s down to the grand finale. Once i rode on this train of a story i did not want to get off until the final endpoint of this page turning orchestra of cataclysmic events was reached. You become immersed in this battle for human survival against the ensuing apocalypse at the hands of the robots.

“The machines are now designing and building themselves. More varieties are coming. We believe that these new robots will have greatly increased agility, survivability, and lethality. They will be tailored to fight your people, in your geographic environment, and in your weather conditions.

Let there be no doubt in your mind that the combined onslaught of these machines, working twenty-four hours a day, will soon be unleashed by Archos on your native land.”

Steven Spielberg is working on the movie watch this space for more news as it comes..
