Product description

Review

'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, #1 New York Times Bestselling author


The parts of this book enter your mind, piece by piece, where they self-assemble into a story that makes you think, makes you feel, and makes you scared. --Charles Yu, author of 'How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe'


Lean prose, great characters, and almost unbearable tension ensure that Robopocalypse is going to be a blockbuster. Once started I defy anyone to put it down. --Jack DuBrul, 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


Terrific page-turning fun' --Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly


'While his novel Robopocalypse seems built from the nuts and bolts of Terminator and World War Z, it s presented in a style that rewires the age-old story. It s no spoiler to tell you that there is a war between humans and their bots, and that we win, as it s a plot point that is revealed in the opening scene. A contentious move on Wilson s part, perhaps, one that he stands by' --Jodie Tyley, SciFi Now
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

'While his novel Robopocalypse seems built from the nuts and bolts of Terminator and World War Z, it s presented in a style that rewires the age-old story. It s no spoiler to tell you that there is a war between humans and their bots, and that we win, as it s a plot point that is revealed in the opening scene. A contentious move on Wilson s part, perhaps, one that he stands by' --Jodie Tyley, SciFi Now
