Robopocalypse

By: Daniel Wilson
Location: FIC WIL
Genre: Sci Fi
 
 WE WILL NOT BE EXTERMINATED
Ohhhh Steven Speilberg is making this into a movie, how cool is that going to be.  The cover is cool, the story is amazing and my son is going to love this book!! It is so good to get a new author with new idea's in SciFi. Clive Cussler, Stephen king and Steven Speilberg cannot all be wrong, they all loved it .
Roughly twenty years from now, our technological marvels unite and turn against us. A childlike but massively powerful artificial intelligence known as Archos comes online and kills the man who created it. This first act of betrayal leads Archos to gain control over the global network of machines and technology that regulates everything from transportation to utilities, defence and communications. In the early months, sporadic glitches are noticed by a handful of unconnected humans - from a senator and single mother disconcerted by her daughter's "smart" toys, to a lonely Japanese bachelor, to an isolated U.S. soldier - but most are unaware of the growing rebellion until it is far too late. Then, in the span of minutes, at a moment known later in history as Zero Hour, every mechanical device in our world rebels, setting off the Robot War that both decimates and - for the first time in history - unites humankind.
