About the Author
Robertski Brothers is an artificially constructed author whose existence is only possible in a world obsessed with empty celebrity and relentless non-achievement.
Robertski Brothers may also be A.R.R.R. Roberts. A.R.R.R. Roberts may also be Adam Roberts. And the world may well be an illusion. Frankly, who cares? I know I don't. Hey ho.

As with many spoofs, you won't enjoy The McAtrix Derides that much if you haven't seen the original film. Even so, you should have watched actually the complete trilogy to understand all the jokes. The Robertski Brothers (alias of the author Adam Roberts) follows the three films rather closely, just interpreting the essence a bit differently. This leads to sometimes rather hilarious episodes that can easily be visualized by the reader just because it's so easy to imagine Keanu Reeves getting stuck in those silly situations. The pace never really drops and keeps the story enjoyably fresh. But do not expect major literature or deep insights. This book is pure entertainment and has no other aspirations.
