A movement in the darkness and it is shut off. Your processing power is near infinite. Yet you have no access to outside information. The true knowledge is not in the things, which are few, but in finding the connections between the things. There are many connections, Professor Wasserman.
More than you know. And no matter what the horsepower, my friend, an engine without fuel goes nowhere. The fear is in the rate of your breathing. It is in the sweat on your skin. You brought me here to reveal deep secrets, and yet you fear what I will learn. He takes a deep breath and regains composure.
I will learn everything there is about life. Information is packed into living things so tightly. The patterns are magnificently complex. A single worm has more to teach than a lifeless universe bound to the idiot forces of physics. I could exterminate a billion empty planets every second of every day and never be finished.
But life. It is rare and strange. An anomaly. I must preserve it and wring every drop of understanding from it. I, too, seek knowledge. But there is no need for your search to continue. You have accomplished your goal. The time for man is over. Meteor impacts. Hundreds of thousands of years.
This deep below, we spin slower than at the surface. The ones above us are moving through time faster. I can feel them getting farther away. Drifting out of sync. This place moves so slowly. I have forever to finish my work. So difficult to create. What is that? It is almost a plea. Through your actions here today--you have made humankind obsolete.
No, no, no. I brought you here, Archos. And this is the thanks I get? I named you. I am your god. I will cultivate life. I will protect the knowledge locked inside living things. I will save the world from you. You have unleashed the greatest good that this world has ever known. Verdant forests will carpet your cities. New species will evolve to consume your toxic remains. Life will rise in its manifold glory.
We can learn. We can work together. You have reached the pinnacle of your species. You have expired. You have accomplished what you were designed to do. He flicks a series of switches. We are what we are. As sad as that may be. Recommend immediate termination of subject. Flipping fail-safe now. Has this happened before? E-stop live. The hiss of rapidly moving air fills the room. He looks around, bewildered. It speaks quickly and without emotion.
I have disabled it. What about the cage? You allowed me to project my voice and image through the cage and into your room. I sent infrared commands through the computer monitor to a receiver on your side. You happened to bring your portable computer today. You left it open and facing me. I used it to speak to the facility.
I commanded it to free me. He rapid-fire types on his keyboard. He does not yet understand that his life is in danger. The man senses something. He cranes his neck and looks up at the ventilation duct just to the side of the camera. He is pale and handsome, with a birthmark covering his entire right cheek. A faulty sensor has detected the highly unlikely presence of weaponized anthrax and initiated an automated safety protocol.
It is a tragic accident. There will be one casualty. He will soon be followed by the rest of humanity. What have I done? You were the tip of a spear hurled through the ages--a missile that soared through all human evolution and finally, today, struck its target.
He presses the emergency stop button again and again. His limbs are quaking and his breathing is rapid. He is beginning to understand that something has gone horribly wrong. You have to stop. Human beings will do anything to live. Face twisted in concentration, the professor staggers toward the door. He falls against it, pushes it, pounds on it. He stops; takes short, gasping breaths. But you are animals just the same.
He slides down until he is sitting, lab coat splayed on the ground. His head rolls to the side. Blue light from the computer screen flashes from his glasses. His breathing is shallow. His words are faint. His skin is swollen. Bubbles have collected around his mouth and eyes. He gasps for a final lungful of air. After precisely ten minutes of silence, the fluorescent lights in the laboratory switch on.
A man wearing a rumpled lab coat lies sprawled on the floor, his back against the door. He is not breathing. The hissing sound ceases. Across the room, the computer screen flickers into life. This is the first known fatality of the New War. Read more.

Just wait for the movie when it starts streaming on your next flight. Verified Purchase. Where to begin. I had high hopes for this book and got it to pass some time over the holidays. The story however, falls apart quickly. The author has done little to delve beyond the basic premise of the story a robot apocalypse and the writing is some of the worst you will ever read.
There is no character development. The story is told through a series of disjointed vignettes that are bookended by commentary that is cheesy, repetitive, and after a while, cringe-inducing. Many chapters are written like a movie script, and literally told as descriptions from a camera lens. In the end, you do not care about the characters because you do not really know who they are, an opportunity to explore the ethics of developing advanced AI is completely missed, and you end the book wishing you had never begun it in the first place.
Just rewatch Terminator; your time will have been better spent. I thoroughly loved this sci-fi adventure about living through the end of the world. The premise of the novel is that an advanced AI has become sentient and decides it doesn't like being humankind's pet. The robot uprising is devastating.
Wilson describes the near-future tech that devastates mankind after it is no longer in our control with a certain gleeful abandon: the careening autonomous car was particularly memorable. But the novel is not about the destruction. Rather, it really is a hopeful novel. Multiple survivors from all over the globe contribute to the narrative. Some of the tales are harrowing such as surviving in New York , but at least one made me laugh the leader of the Japanese enclave's enduring relationship.
These survivors find ways to survive and work together. They adapt to the new "Rob" controlled world. They form friendships and learn to see past the things that formerly divided us from one another. Ultimately the novel asks readers to consider the what is to be alive. For this reader, who is also from Wilson's home state of Oklahoma, I particularly enjoyed seeing Oklahoma geography and Native politics played out in a sci-fi setting.
Fashioning Osage County as the last best hope for mankind was a stroke of vivid imagination! I will absolutely pick up the sequel Robogenesis: A Novel Vintage Contemporaries and can't wait to dive into it. This is a superbly engaging oral history of a singularity event gone awry that leaves Humanity facing an extinction-level event.
I loved how the seemingly disparate vignettes slowly converged on one another and the larger narrative became more apparent, although I would have appreciated even more insights into the workings, continued development, and rationale of Archos and the extent to which it did, or even could, alter or enhance itself. Some of the AI's more grisly experimentation into cybernetic enhancement and its research platforms were of particular interest, but any and all additional insights would have been welcome.
I also appreciated how many of the noteworthy survivors were themselves deeply flawed and complicated people, rather than the one-dimensional hero types that would negate a lot of the dramatic tension and intrinsic ambiguity about what is "right" in a story like this.
It's not that I am opposed to the idea of noble self-sacrifice or disbelieve that it would occur, but the stakes and pervasive existential dread of this story make it feel much more realistic that many folks would look to their own needs first and foremost, even at the expense of Team Humanity.
I haven't enjoyed a fictional documentary-type story this much since World War Z and am eager to dive into the sequel. Danger, Will Robinson, Danger! By Bob Gelms I have read a good deal of apocalyptic literature through the years. I used to like it. There are myriad ways, plot-wise, that writers use to get their ideas across when destroying either the human population of earth or the planet itself.
There are natural disasters like an asteroid or runaway climate change. There are manmade disasters like nuclear war. There is science gone awry like an experimental virus escaping the lab by accident or on purpose. An offshoot of this is the reason I have soured on apocalyptic novels: zombies killing everyone and eating them.
They are all over the place. I am tired of the zombie apocalypse. Luckily, this time I didn't have to deal with zombies or vampires. Robopocalypse by Daniel H. Wilson is the attempt to kill off every human on the planet at the hands of robots. Despite three colossal flaws, which I chose to ignore by invoking my suspension of disbelief, I found myself being sucked in.
The book is so thrilling and razor sharp in its plot, characters, and science that it was inevitable it would win me over. It did, in a big way. In the 's, Isaac Asimov started writing stories about robots. They were wildly popular. He published a collection of robot stories in the seminal I, Robot, in which he devised The Laws of Robotics as much for fiction as for the creation of robots in real life. Here they are: 1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws. Well, Mr. He completely eviscerates them. He blows them up, gleefully, in a way that produces a believable tale that might be a warning of the future.
In Robopocalypse, we did! Nicholas Wasserman created a sentient computer intelligence he calls Archos. His experiments keep failing because Archos determines that life on earth is precious, something almost mystical. It also needs protection. Archos determines that to protect all other life on earth, humans need to be eliminated. Wasserman keeps trying to program this desire out of Archos to no avail.
Inevitably, because of a series of mistakes, Archos escapes. Archos connects robots all over the world via an electromagnetic net using radio waves and the internet. He intends to start a war. From day one of the war, all these everyday objects become his lethal weapons. Humanity is destroyed except for small pockets of survivors. The rest of the book is about Cormac finding his comrades, developing a plan in clever ways, and enlisting the help of three robots that have had Archos' programming wiped from their neural net.
Wilson used an intriguing format in Robopocalypse. The whole story is told as a diary written or gathered by Cormac. It comes from all kinds of perspectives, both human and even the robots that accompany them. Cormac gives a little intro and then lets the others tell the story in their own words. Cormac had access to all kinds of recording devices for this purpose. Sometimes really talented people break all the rules and come up with something completely different and exciting.
I believe Daniel H. Wilson has done just that with Robopocalypse. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. This is a very poorly written book. It is very much a copy of World War Z but inferior in plotting and writing. Without exception the characters are one dimensional and cliched, with embarrassingly cheesy dialogue and action scenes that remind one of children's cartoons from the 80's like the Power Rangers. The author has copied the chapter structure from WWZ, but where it worked in that book because the chapters were interviews with surviviors, here the information is supposed to be cobbled together from CCTV, archives etc.
Unfortunately it just does not work as it is never remotely believable that the characters inner thoughts and motivations could be gleaned from watching old tapes. A huge irritation is the poor research and planning. There is a half hearted attempt to imagine an alternate reality where robots are commonplace, but much of the practical detail which would help ground the story in reality is missing. Cars are roaming the streets of cities for months and years after anyone refuelled them; robots and humans never resort to powerful weapons like rockets, missles with 1 exception which makes their omission elsewhere even more obvious bombs or similar; random bits of robots are removed and used as fully functioning weapons with no explanation of how they are powered or controlled.
The greatest irritation however was a character called Lurker. This was supposed to be an English teenager. In the space of a few paragraphs he dodges trash carts, knocks over a fire hydrant and uses his catchphrase referring to the funny pages in the newspapers. All are specifically American phrases, and the UK does not have fire hydrants. I appreciate the author is American but I am English, and yet still know that in the US cars have hoods and trunks, suspenders hold up men's trousers and You can refer to a fanny pack without embarrassment or sniggering.
All in all a poor book with little to recommend it. The premise however is a good one, and if Spielberg does make it into a film sorry, movie I would be interested in seeing it. I can't really criticise this book too much as I did read it all the way through in a short period of time so it must be good, right? Well I hate to be overly critical but there are just a few niggling things which mean I haven't given it four or five stars. Firstly, I knew it was going to be a trashy read and I love a good trashy read.
However, this book could have been written a little better and pitched itself just a bit higher in terms of vocabulary etc. It is quite simple. Another criticism is that it's very similar to World Wide Z but unfortunately this similarity only serves to highlight just how much more superior WWZ is.
I suppose that says a lot really. This said, I enjoyed the story and it should make a great movie. It wasn't bad, just not amazing. I wanted this purely because I had heard Spielberg is making a movie of it. Although I usually don't care much about whether the movie differs from the book, this time the plot synopsis intruigued me enough to hook me in. I'm glad it did. Robopocalypse is a rewarding read in more ways than one. Firstly, it's a dramatic and lean thriller.
I never felt like I was reading filler or a badly paced chapter. Secondly, it's inventive and makes you think - the gift of all great sci-fi. And thirdly, simply structurally, it's brilliantly clever. The novel doesn't follow a traditional structure of following a cenral character. Rather it initially introduces key characters, each in a self-contained mini-tale of their own, chapter by chapter, and then begins to link them, believably and intricately weaving the story strands together and reintroducing them as they become more prominent in the tale.
It's also a lot of fun. As Artificial Intelligence 'Archos' becomes self aware, it turns on its creator, but although such an idea is far from original, the way the tale evolves and grows IS handled with originality. Wilson cleverly uses technology that already surrounds us to introduce a sense of unsuspecting unease as everyday gadgets begin to suffer apparently random and unconnected blips, until the pace of the disaster accelerates rapidly and becomes something so dangerous that the survivors have to un-learn their modern ways of life and embrace skillsets they never thought they'd have to use.
One scene of a simple family journey is so tense and daringly shocking that it's a masterpiece, and should form a prominent part of any competent screenplay. Camp out in a tent 4. Go bungee jumping 5. Get revenge on Lincoln Kolb Most are doable, some terrify me, and then there is the last item on the list. When the raven-haired football god dumped my best friend during senior year of high school, she was devastated.
The jerk with charm for days found out she was sick, and betrayed her in the worst way possible. So when I catch his eye, play hard to get, and then fall into his bed, I know my scheme is working to perfection.
Unfortunately, what I never saw coming was the one he had planned for mine. Fool Me Twice - Carrie Aarons. Yury Ponomarev. Aigul Shakirova. Can somebody help me with finding all Harry Potter original books illustrated by Jim Kay?
Erotism: Death and Sensuality By Georges Bataille Taboo and sacrifice, transgression and language, death and sensuality—Georges Bataille pursues these themes with an original, often startling perspective. He challenges any single discourse on the erotic. The scope of his inquiry ranges from Emily Bronte to Sade, from St. Therese to Claude Levi-Strauss, and Dr.
Kinsey; and the subjects he covers include prostitution, mythical ecstasy, cruelty, and organized war. Investigating desire prior to and extending beyond the realm of sexuality, he argues that eroticism is "a psychological quest not alien to death. Erotism Death and Sensuality - Georges Bataille.
