In this terrifying tale of humanity’s desperate stand against a robot uprising, Daniel H. Wilson has written the most entertaining sci-fi thriller in years.
Not far into our future, the dazzling technology that runs our world turns against us. Controlled by a childlike—yet massively powerful—artificial intelligence known as Archos, the global network of machines on which our world has grown dependent suddenly becomes an implacable, deadly foe. At Zero Hour—the moment the robots attack—the human race is almost annihilated, but as its scattered remnants regroup, humanity for the first time unites in a determined effort to fight back. This is the oral history of that conflict, told by an international cast of survivors who experienced this long and bloody confrontation with the machines. Brilliantly conceived and amazingly detailed, Robopocalypse is an action-packed epic with chilling implications about the real technology that surrounds us. 



  • Great read

    By Dude2181
    Excellent story that predates some of the technology slowing coming to use today and the march toward improving and increasing AI abilities. Well told story.
  • Great Scifi: Ready for movie

    Could not finishing reading book😎
  • Surprisingly good!

    By 3gsx
    I haven't read any science fiction in years. I loved this novel for the characters development. You love them, hate them, root for them. Extremely well written and satisfying.
  • Great mix of hard science fiction and characterization

    By Conchster
    The set of vignettes that the author weaves together engages you and keeps you turning pages until way past when you should put it down and go to bed.
  • Nice Read

    By Gallimaufry
    I like the way the book was laid out as a collection of short stories. Although I generally like more explanation of how advanced tech works I found the stories interesting enough to keep me from caring about exactly what kind of power source could possibly deliver enough energy to run the military robots.
  • I actually finished this one

    By neville stewart
    I have to say that I have never finished a book. I've read and finished many of technical books, IBM Redbooks. I first came across Robogenesis when I was away on business, and stopped by a Barnes and Nobles. I was immediately hooked, only to realize that I was reading the sequel. I quickly found an employee to request a search for Robopocalypse - sold out. A few hours later, I'm back at the hotel room and downloaded this book onto my hand iPad. Since reading the first chapter, I knew I had to finish this book. The descriptions that the author used in this book made it feel real. Almost every chapter gave me goosebumps and talking to myself. I would've liked more dialog between Archo's and 9 Oh Two about its origins, but great book all the way!
  • Script treatment?

    By earthlingdave
    This is not so much a novel as it is a script treatment. Poorly written underdeveloped characters, a disjointed narrative structure that doesn't hold up to logic, and an unsatisfying conclusion. I seriously think this is just bait for a Hollywood adaptation. Read some Asimov instead.
  • Amateur writing

    By as;dlkjfals;dkjf
    The premise of the book is attractive, but the style is a turn-off. Short, disjointed chapters make up the book, which prevent a flow from developing. However, it is the conclusion at the end of each chapter that is really irritating. Quite simply, it is difficult to believe that the author has a Ph.D., not because of the technical content, but because of the elementary overall style. Sorry.
  • Decent

    By Nickplay
    Some good ideas but you get the feeling the book could have been written better by someone else. Still a decent book that I managed to finish.
