“A frenetic thriller…Wilson, like the late
Crichton, is skilled in combining cutting-edge technology with gripping action
“Vigorous, smart, and gripping.”
“A brilliantly conceived thriller that could
well become horrific reality. A captivating tale, Robopocalypse will grip your
imagination from the first word to the last, on a wild rip you won’t soon
forget. What a read…unlike anything I’ve read before.”
Clive Cussler, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“This electrifying thriller…will entertain you,
but it will also make you think about our technology dependency.”
“Wilson’s training as a roboticist makes
accepting a ubiquitous robot presence natural to the author; it also helps him
imagine and describe some amazing machines, efficient, logically designed, and utterly
inimical to human life…[Robopocalypse]
reads at times like horror. That its events are scientifically plausible makes
them all the more frightening.”
“A superbly entertaining thriller…[Robopocalypse has] everything you’d want
in a beach book.”
“[Wilson] presents a doomsday scenario more
plausible than most. No vampires, no zombies…Science fiction has been grappling
with the possibility of traitorous computers and mutinous androids for much of
its history, but Wilson has devised a way to put an original spin on the
material. Robopocalypse is a
well-constructed entertainment machine, perfect for summer reading. It’s
especially refreshing to read an end-of-the-world novel that’s actually
self-contained, that doesn’t require the investment in two or three more thick
volumes to deliver the apocalyptic goods.”
San Francisco Chronicle

Daniel H. Wilson’s Robopocalypse is...an ingenious, instantly visual story of war between humans and robots.

It'll be scarier than "Jaws": We don't have to go in the water, but we all have to use gadgets.

A superbly entertaining thriller…[Robopocalypse has] everything you'd want in a beach book.
Robopocalypse is the kind of robot uprising novel that could only have been written in an era when robots are becoming an ordinary part of our lives. This isn't speculation about a far-future world full of incomprehensible synthetic beings. It's five minutes into the future of our Earth, full of the robots we take for granted. If you want a rip-roaring good read this summer, Robopocalypse is your book.
A brilliantly conceived thriller that could well become horrific reality. A captivating tale, Robopocalypse will grip your imagination from the first word to the last, on a wild rip you won't soon forget. What a read…unlike anything I’ve read before.

An Andromeda Strain for the new century, this is visionary fiction at its best: harrowing, brilliantly rendered, and far, far too believable.
Lincoln Child, New York Times bestselling author of Deep Storm
Robopocalypse reminded me of Michael Crichton when he was young and the best in the business. This novel is brilliant, beautifully conceived, beautifully written (high-five, Dr. Wilson)…but what makes it is the humanity. Wilson doesn't waste his time writing about 'things,' he's writing about human beings -- fear, love, courage, hope. I loved it.
Robert Crais, New York Times bestselling author of The Sentry
Futurists are already predicting the day mankind builds its replacement, Artificial Intelligence. Daniel Wilson shows what might happen when that computer realizes its creators are no longer needed. Lean prose, great characters, and almost unbearable tension ensure that Robopocalypse is going to be a blockbuster. Once started I defy anyone to put it down.
Jack DuBrul, New York Times bestselling author
The parts of this book enter your mind, piece by piece, where they self-assemble into a story that makes you think, makes you feel, and makes you scared.
Charles Yu, author of How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe
Author [Daniel Wilson], who holds a doctorate in robotics, shows great promise as a worthy successor to Michael Crichton as Wilson, like the late Crichton, is skilled in combining cutting-edge technology with gripping action scenes. Expect a big demand for this frenetic thriller.
You're swept away against your will… a riveting page turner.
Things pop along at a wonderfully breakneck pace, and by letting his characters reveal themselves through their actions, Wilson creates characters that spring to life. Vigorous, smart and gripping.
