Starts good, and I'm a sucker for the premise. But it's just not handled very well. You don't care about the characters, and later about the plot. Not recommended.

I just finished Robopocalypse by Daniel H. Wilson. I don't generally read Science Fiction but I think this book transcends that genre. Imagine a world a few years down the road from ours, but not too far but long enough for domestic robots to become commonplace, where there are chips and control systems in our cars that do most of the driving and sense, communicate, and react to other cars to avoid collisions. Where the military deploys robots in non lethal duty in Afghanistan monitoring villages. Now imagine that all these robots and computers and sensors are interconnected. Next imagine that the machines start to take over. The same computers, communications, and sensors that enable cars to avoid collisions, well ... do you get the picture. Or that the military non lethal robots suddenly know how to pick up, load, and fire machine guns. Or that Afghan Taliban and American soldiers uniting to fight the machines. (The terrorists have years of experience fighting robots and drones.) This book is about the machines taking over and human resistance.. Mr. Wilson is a PhD robotics scientist who gave up the field to write books. I think he's going to be a star. His book reminded me more of Stephen King that straight science fiction. He has the perfect way of making the commonplace, scary and frightening. Robopocalypse is going to be Stephen Spielberg's next movie. For now though, Daniel Wilson is an engaging smart, funny cool guy, who gives book readings at small stores in Tulsa and yells to his Godson that he can only have one cookie. Sweetie got my copy signed by the author. No, you can't borrow it. His next book out is Amped. You'll bet I'm getting it.

Slow starting, with the invividual accounts too fragmented to hold my interest, but then the story picks up and builds to a satisfying finish. I'm frankly worried I won't like the sequel, but this was too good not to give it a try.

This story of the human war with machines in revolt is told in a fragmented, episodic format that leaves some gaping holes and questions unanswered, but which is a fun ride, nonetheless. There were a few problems with the narrative, especially in terms of clumsy foreshadowing that ended up not being connected to anything later, and the writing was labored in parts. For all that, it was good, mindless fun.

I was really surprised...

I was really surprised that I enjoyed this book. I picked it up from the local library out of curiosity because I had read that Steven Spielberg had purchased the movie rights. It will make a great movie, and I hope that the characters will be more fully developed than what the reader gets to experience in the book. The book starts at the end and then flashes back to different scenes throughout the war of man versus technology. The book is divided into five parts, and each part is divided into chapters that highlight the experiences of a specific cast of characters. Wilson did a great job of creating likable, intriguing characters that represent different parts of society. Although I usually do not like books that jump around from chapter to chapter, Wilson does a great job of transitioning the sequences with the use of a narrator who is recording specific events from the war. The main problem with the book is that I wanted more- more character development, more plot, more story line. I wanted to follow the characters for more than the chapters that they appeared in, and I wanted to know what happened to them in between. I guess if you leave the story wanting more, that is a good thing.
