Ines have started to resemble humans In Wilson s xploration of these blurred is one of the highlights of the book Like #Wilson s xploration of these blurred lines is one of the highlights of the book Like Roboapocalypse Wilson is again technically very rigorous as you would xpect from someone with a PhD in Robotics and on point in regards to the different AI s and their functions The battle seuences and how the robots would behave were incredibly vivid fiery and ntertaining and I adored the pervasive sense of hopelessness that oozed from the human protagonists in this book Their narrative and dialgoue as they attempt to adapt to the growing threats around them and from within was brilliantly fascinating Their backs are literally against the "wall and things are not looking bright for the future Overall Robogenesis is a great read and Wilson has definitely "and things are not looking bright for the future Overall Robogenesis is a great read and Wilson has definitely up his game for this instalment Robogenesis does feel like a middle book at times and Wilson obviously has his yes set on the third book with some of the Eyes events set up in this story However this did not detract from my overallnjoyment and I would recommend this book for any fan of science fiction or apocalyptic fiction A cracking read 4 out of 5 starssmashdragonsblogspotcomauA review copy was provided Well look at that timeframe almost three months to the day I must be honest and say the time it took is not solely the books fault A lot of big life changes and summer activities have negated some of my reading prowess However that being said and all things consideration I did not like this second instalment Is it a bad book No I don t think so it just wasn t what I wanted I xpected a robopocalypse 20 and I didn t get it Ultimately I find it odd that I didn t like this book and maybe with different xternal variables I would have loved it However I have to rate it based on the current read and that s what I have done If I read it again in the future that probably will change Final thoughts last three or four chapters are pretty friggin sweet for lack of a better phrase Just wish the whole book was that good STILL READ ROBOPOCALYPSE THOUGH Ps thanks for the patience and sticking this one out with me I promise a dedicated reading schedule hence forth In its last days the thinking machine known as Archos R 14 was trying to know humanity It mastered the art of capturing the human mind When it died it left behind the tools I found stories trapped in patterns of neurons Using scavenged hardware I took three accounts straight from three minds and I lined them up from beginning to Sinner's Heart end and back again Three times to tell it Three times to understand They say history is written by the victors but this right here is told by its victims My name is Arayt Shah and this is the story of how I won the True War In Robopocalypse Archos R 14 an artificial intelligence takes control of the robots and other machines that have made human lifeasier Humanity is on the run being hunted by superior killing machines and in the initial days the herd is thinned considerably A robust band of remaining fighters continue to learn and figure out how to turn the technology against the uprising machines I must in all fairness issue a word of warning to any artificial intelligence considering taking over this world and I would issue the same warning to any alien intelligence considering the same move we are a nasty scrappy bunch and we haven t been sitting on the top of the food chain on this planet for thousands of years because we are benevolent beings You will most assuredly catch us with our asses flapping in the wind totally unprepared for whatever mayhem you wish to inflict upon us but we will in the nd be sitting in the wreckage of our world sipping the wine of triumph from your skull or dripping some fine vintage into the smoking ruin of your hard drive We ve been going beyond the reach of the firelight for a long long time sometimes with just a rock in our hands Most of us don t look like him any but buried in our lizard brain he is sitting around waiting to be unleashedOk so I ve probably made sure I m not going to be one of the triumphal survivors at the nd of the next apocalypse I m hoping that my keyboard doesn t send 10000 volts through me before I can finish this review I do like finishing what I start Needless to say I would not be doing so much chest pounding if Daniel H Wilson had not figured out how to beat the machines We win Archos R 14 is destroyed and now the humans are returning to the shattered tattered remains of our grand cities The only problem is that we hate to lose data Most of us have numerous ways of backing up important data As it turns out Archos R 14 was not any different The Spirit of the Wolf en. Lled In Robogenesis we see that Archos has survived Spread across the far reaches of the world the machine code has fragmented into millions of pieces hiding and regrouping In a series of riveting narratives Robogenesisxplores the fates of characters new and old robotic and human as they fight to build a new world in the wake of a devastating war Readers will bear witness as survivors find one another form into groups ,
read Robogenesis Robopocalypse #2,
Tity spread pieces of all over the world and one of those #Copies Is Arayt Shah I #is Arayt Shah I the human race regrettably But I did so with one purpose to forge a hybrid fighting force capable of surviving the True War a war that has been initiated and is being fought by superintelligent machines Instead of simply discarding your species as the others would I have transformed your kind into a powerful allyMathilda Perez is one of those that have been transformed into something something beyond human something that proves very dangerous to Arayt Shah s plans for domination Back home at the Underground our friend Dawn used to call it my ocular prosthesis It s made of dead black lightweight metal The thing wraps over where my A Vineyard Christmas eyes used to be before a Rob surgical unit dug them out and ported this piece of foreign machinery directly to my occipital cortex I remember Mommy s hand on my shoulders pulling me out of the autodoc before it could finish The hurt sound in her throat when saw what Rob had done to my baby face There is also Lark Iron Cloud one of the heroes from the war who paid the ultimate price for his service but does not receive the peaceful rest that death should bring He s been taken over by a parasite a bug that did not need his body but needed his brain I remember the wind sucking pain of that motherfucker when it first hit me and dug into living flesh My frantic little dancing out there on the battlefield along with so many others With the pincered fingers of both hands I graspither side of my split foot Motors hum and bones snap as I crudely rip the sides of my boot Een Bijzondere Vorm Van Osteosclerose encased foot apart I toss the chunks of flesh and leather splashing into the lake Where my foot was only the glistening black bones of the parasite remain I feel nothing My foot is gone One second Two Then the reality of it hits me like suffocation In surges Some deeply human part of my brain is gaping screaming at this horrible violation of my body My foot was And now it is not There is also Cormac Wallace who has survived through sometimes dumb luck and sometimes through the kindness of strange machinery He is still mourning the loss of his dynamic brother and trying desperately to keep his girlfriend alive longnough for her to have the baby that he feels will be the bridge to the future I m about to take a shrapnel spray to the face The knowledge doesn t stop me from screaming This acne scarred kid a hell of a war fighter named Lark Iron Cloud used to say that if you don t die screaming in this war then you re fuckin doing it wrong At least I m fucking doing it right There are all kinds of variables that have been let loose on the war Creatures that are weaponized in creative and terrifying ways Until they make a move you really don t know what is coming at you The monster is made of razored sheaths of ashen metal coiled and layered and glistening like a millipede The sheaths flare into a hood on its head A cluster of small holes are mbedded where a face would be I feel a tingling on my skin as they sweep over me On its hind legs the machine stands seven feet tall swaying writhing in place The war is over but the new phase is only beginning Humanity understandably is suspicious of anything not completely organic Modified humans that were so important in victory are now being hunted by the very people they saved Tribal units are formed and anyone not a part of your clan is someone who probably needs liminated Arayt Shah is there to take advantage of the temporary respite the world is weary of war and willing to ignore the signs of a new resurgence A jumble of old Robots new Robots modified humans humans and artificial intelligence all form uncertain alliances to fight on one side or the other Winning has never felt so much like losing Daniel H WilsonDaniel H Wilson has a PHD in Robotics from a fancy school called Carnegie Mellon University Not bad for an Okie from Muskogee well not really he is from Tulsa His brain conceives the most terrifying and amazing things out of plastic metal and computer chips What makes him ven impressive is that he can convey that knowledge into a pair of books that kept me riveted to the pages He understands pacing and suspense Science meets literature and they have conceived twins called Robopocalypse and Robogenesis Wilson does a great job summarizing the first book at the beginning of this book so Robogenesis can technically stand alone but I would highly recommend starting with the first book Why just ride one roller coaster when you can ride two Steven Spielberg has optioned the rights to the first book but for some reason the filming keeps being delaye. Nd react to a drastically different and deadly technological landscape All the while the remnants of Archos's shattered intelligence are seeping deeper into new breeds of machines mounting a war that will not allow for humans to win again Daniel H Wilson makes a triumphant return to the apocalyptic world he created for an action filled raucous very smart thrill ride about humanity and technology pushed to the tipping poin.
I really liked Daniel H #s
*ROBOPOCALYPSE THE BOOK TOOK A TIRED *The book took a tired and delivered a story that was and #Robopocalypse The book took a tired premise and delivered a story that was sleek and It was also a surprisingly dark novel with scenes of horror mixed in with all the sci fi tech talkThe seuel Robogenesis falls a bit shortThe war between man and machine has nded but many uestions remain We rejoin the first book s surviving heroes as they try to get by in the changed world Old allies are now Hot Shot (North Ridge Book 3) enemies Oldnemies are now potential allies And now a strange new Math Basics 6 evil has found humanity and means toradicate the species once and for allIt s strange that based on the first book s description Robopocalypse sounds like it s gonna be a tired repeat of a story we ve heard over and over but instead it manages to feel fresh and new By comparison Robogenesis sounds like the original story but instead feels like a bit of been there done thatOne thing that hurts the book than anything Voyage to the Underworld (Star Wars Missions, else is the new robot villain The malicious AI begins a very GollumRing relationship with an unlucky man turning the man into an instrument of destruction It starts out all right a little familiar but all right but by thend it just stopped working for me In Robopocalypse the robots were cold unfeeling The First Ghost executioners but this new villain is like us it s full of rage and humanmotion There are some truly chilling moments in book 1 thanks in large part to the detached fficient manner in which the robots brought death to humanity This new villain isn t scary It s dark and sometimes it s nasty but it s not nearly as ffectiveI also found the narrative a bit confusing this time Like the first book the story jumps around a lot and we get characters from all over the world Unlike the first book it s not always crystal clear as to what was happening who was talking and where it was all taking place The book has many POV protagonists but only a couple of them stand out from the rest so it makes it Simple Numbers, Straight Talk, Big Profits!: 4 Keys to Unlock Your Business Potential easy to get mixed up I stopped reading in the middle of a chapter came back to the book a day or two later and was completely lost Never had that problem with the first bookThere are plenty of good things though I was particularly interested in the robotntity that creates robotic animal life Interesting stuff there I also njoyed catching up with some likable characters in particular the robots And I gotta say that the action seuences of which there are many were well written But all in all I found it to be a rather disappointing follow up to a cool book It s not bad just kind of lackluster However I think it s worth reading if you re a fan of the first book and I xpect others will Humanism enjoy it than I did I understand a third book is on the way Despite not loving this one I intend to check out the next story when it comes outI m giving this a 25 and rounding up to 3 on Goodreads In its last days the thinking machine known as Archos R 14 was trying to know humanity It mastered the art of capturing a human mind When it died it left behind the tools I found stories trapped in patterns of neurons Using scavenged hardware I took three accounts straight from three minds and I lined them up from beginning tond and back again Three times to tell it Three times to understand They say history is written by the victors but this right here is told by its victims My name is Arayt Shah and this is the story of how I won the True WarDaniel H Wilson stormed onto the scene in 2011 with Roboapocalypse a tale of the war between humanity and robots In this followup Smokin' Hot entitled Robogenesis Simon and Schuster RRP 2999 we learn that the war is not over and that Archos 14 the supremely intelligent A I who started the war has in fact survived Lines of Archos codexist in caches around the world and they are starting to wake up We also discover that an Placing Memory earlier version of Archos calling itself Arayt Shahxists This sets the scene for a titanic conflict not only between robots and humans but also now new robots freeborn robots and the parasitic dead Robogenesis takes us on an pic journey of conflict and intense action Wilson has again set a cracking pace and this novel unfurls at a rapid rate as vents spiral out of control for all of the players Divided into three distinct parts and focusing on the three characters of Lark Iron Cloud Mathilda Perez and Cormac Wallace Wilson xplores how the robots start to fight back and how the lines between humanity and the robots has become very blurred and grey Darker and grim then its predecessor Robogenesis xplodes with intensity whilst also posing the uestion of what actually does it mean to be human Humans have started to resemble machines in Robogenesis and the mach. The stunningly creative Wanton Nights epic seuel to Wilson's blockbuster thriller and New York Times bestseller Robopocalypse The machine is still out there Still alive Humankind had triumphed over the machines At thend of Robopocalypse the modern world was largely devastated humankind was pressed to the point of annihilation and the While My Soldier Serves earth was left in tatters but the master artificial intelligence presence known as Archos had been ki.
