Quick Review: Robopocalypse

The Blurb: (from amazon)
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.

My Review:
This is so good. Ignore the creepy/cheesy cover and just plow right into it! It's got everything that a geek loves! It's very much in the same vein as the Terminator movies, in a way. You got the creepy pissed off machines trying to take out all of man kind! The way between the humans and the robots. The friendly robots that are helpful. The struggles to survive. It's a very tightly written story!

I loved it. Every single last word of this book! I found out that the book has been optioned for a movie! If they do a true to book movie then it will DEFINITELY rock your face off!

I'm thinking it's pretty obvious by now that I liked this book..loved it in fact. Nuff said!
