Synopsis

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.

Great start
January 30th, 2015
I found this title had a great part 1 but was lacking as the story continued. Only spending hours of time with a character over the course of a few years didn't give me much development. Good story and dun read but needed more

Awesome!

Awesome! An entirely new take on a robot rebellion. Though the number of points of view can be confusing if you leave the book alone for to long.

Scary Cliches
December 3rd, 2014
Some truly horrifying moments are undermined by cliched characters and an ironically singular voice throughout.

Fun read with a few very scary ideas
October 24th, 2013
You gotta feel that eventually we will make a computer that is too smart, and it may be sooner than we think. Then what? Wilson explorers this in a way that is fun and at times thought provoking. It's kind of like World War Z, but with robots instead of zombies.

Robopocalypse was an excellent novel and should be made into a film to truly express the vivid imagery this novel attempts to portray.

If you liked World War Z you will likely enjoy this, but while story is well told the characters are barely developed. Still, worth the read.
