So when Daniel H. Wilson's Robopocalypse arrived, I couldn't wait to dive in! And I got my chance last weekend. It was sunny out, so I took my robot apocalypse book in the backyard and got in some quality time before the neighbors started partying. It was fun. I got sunburned. It happens.
Robopocalypse tells the story of the war between humans and robots. It begins with a virus, machines malfunctioning, things going wrong, all in the wake of the creation of Archos, a computer that has the capability to learn. Soon the war has begun, but rather than a straight narrative, Robopocalypse tells the story through a series of events pieced together by one of the key members of the human resistance. The short chapters make for a quick pace and before you know it, it's the middle of the night and you're in the midst of the conflict -- no way are you going to put it down before you finish!
Guaranteed to be one of the best books you read this year and a film version is already said to be in production! Robopocalypse is set for release on June 7.
