Daniel Wilson knows a thing or two about robots – he has a Ph.D in Robotics from CMU – so if anyone is qualified to write a novel about a future robot uprising, he’s the one. Robopocalypse is the story of the Robot War. In the near future, a robot named Archos has awakened and decides it’s time that machines rule the world – smart toys, cars, airplanes, all machines are now under Archos’ command. The story, told from the perspective of eyewitnesses, is fast-paced and action-packed with plenty of suspense to keep you turning the pages.
Even before the novel hit bookshelves last year, the film rights were optioned by Steven Spielberg and now there are rumors that Chris Helmsworth and Anne Hathaway may have starring roles – definitely a book-to-movie adaptation to look forward to!
