Ever thought that technology was out to get you? In Wilson's thriller, it happens 20 years from now, when a powerful artificial intelligence called Archos rises up to kill its creator and then takes control of technology worldwide. In a matter of moments every piece of equipment turns against humanity-which ends up united for the first time ever. With Steven Spielberg set to direct the film version, to be distributed by Disney's Touchstone in 2013, you bet this will be big. Buy multiples.
In the near future, at a moment that no one will notice, all the dazzling technology that runs our world will unite and turn against us. "Robopocalypse" is a brilliantly conceived action-filled epic, a terrifying story with heart-stopping implications for the real technology all around us.
