I thought the first ten or so chapters were engaging & kept the attention well, but when it started to devolve more into a 'shoot-em up' ending, it became a little generic. Overall it was an entertaining read in its genre, but will I remember it in detail in 10 years? Not sure, but if it doesn't make you give smart cars a wider berth & side-eye your toaster, you haven't been paying attention. 3⭐
I am posting one book per day from my extensive to-be-read collection. No description or reason for wanting to read the book. Some are old and some will be new. Don't judge me - I have a lot of books.
Ive slowed waaaay down this year compared to last. Having trouble finding my reading groove. 😕
Anyway. Not sure how I feel about this book. I think in more normal times when 4,000 of my country people were't dying every day and genuine fear for the collapse of the government wasn't looming I'd probably enjoy it quite a bit. As it stands, a robotic uprising killing most of the world's population hit a bit close.
My first finished book of the new year! I‘m not a huge sci-fi reader but I did enjoy this one! In the not-too-distant future, all the machines rebel against humans and the war that follows is told through various documents. I listened to the audio and thought the narrator did a decent job.

Just finished up with this Sci-Fi thriller. Very graphic and realistic. The technology springing to life was chilling. Maybe because it‘s so realistic and parallels current tech including self-driving cars...goosebumps.
OMG the library of the future is here! Anyone seen the BookBot library system at NCSU? Wow. But it unnerves me to some extreme that none of the books are in order! Only scanned into bins and indexed - ugh! And has no one thought about how we get to these books when the EMP hits?
Watch it in action-
Reading this for my book club. It's actually a re-read for me. I read it years ago when it first came out and really enjoyed it. Unfortunately it's not a book I ever planned on re-reading and I'm dragging my feet to get it done. I mean, it's good. If you haven't read it and you like futuristic thrillers, it's fun! It just isn't a book that needs a second go-round, know what I mean? Okay. 50 pages to power through. Here I go!
Day 27: Fave Color Cover - I'm a red-kinda girl, and Robocalypse is about (you guessed it) the impending robot apocalypse. My brother warned me someday it would come to this 😉#septinbooks17 #red #redbooks #dystopia #dystopian #apocalypse #dystopianfiction #apocalypticfiction #endoftheworld #robots #robotapocalypse #twilightzone #redreads
#TBRtemptation post! Love this cover! And I like the title too--gets right to the point, doesn't it 😂👏🏻? And if #StephenKing recommends this, then it's worth the read, isn't it? Just admit it 😉. First in a series, it's about the robots in the world turning on humanity. What makes this unique, it seems to me, is that the author has a PhD in Robotics from Carnegie Mellon, so he's coming to this with some gravitas. #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎
