ROBOPOCALYPSE is one of the best robot versus man novels you're likely to hear. You can almost hear the whirs and clicks as humanity's former servants come to deadly sentience. Wilson's style is impressive, starting off with seemingly unconnected anecdotes about individuals reacting to the threat. The stories slowly congeal into a novel about the world’s battle with machines that have become intelligent enough to challenge mankind for sovereignty of the planet. Narrator Mike Chamberlain is a master at allowing the suspense to build with faithful interpretations of the characters and their foibles. It's a little hard to tell his women from his men based on his readings, but genders become obvious with context. The story is set in the near future and is quite believable considering the amazing advances in robotics we see every day. M.S. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2011]
