    In the near future, at a moment no one will notice, all the dazzling technology that runs our world will unite and turn against us. Taking on the persona of a shy human boy, a childlike but massively powerful artificial intelligence known as Archos comes online and assumes control over the global network of machines that regulate everything from transportation to utilities, defense and communication. In the months leading up to this, sporadic glitches are noticed by a handful of unconnected humans - a single mother, a lonely Japanese bachelor, and an isolated U.S. soldier....

    Story

    I just adore this book. I like the way the story is delivered to you. I will agree the first listen it was a little slow to get into, but that is because you land right in a battle scenery. I have read this .... sorry listen to this book a couple of time. I do skip to certain parts sometimes. If you like the style of WWZ you will like. there are parts that i was glued to & even thought i was there. I loved the delivery of the story. The only problem i can see it not with the book or story. It will be with the movie that is set to come out, now granted this will make an awesome movie. However, it is not a family movie(which you know they will make) Some scenes in this book are a little graphic & i don't see how you could film them and not be "R" or even NC-17.
    I would like to thank Mr. Wilson for now making me a little edge on Zero Hour a/k/a Thanksgiving Day.. 8-)

  • The Lightning Thief: Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book 1

    Story

    Twelve-year-old Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school...again. No matter how hard he tries, he can't seem to stay out of trouble. But can he really be expected to stand by and watch while a bully picks on his scrawny best friend? Or not defend himself against his pre-algebra teacher when she turns into a monster and tries to kill him? Of course, no one believes Percy about the monster incident; he's not even sure he believes himself.

    Story

    Ok, so I saw the movie first. I'm a sucker for mythology. It was pretty good. Then I read the book....Then I re watched the movies I know people say this all the time. But the book is Sooo much better. I liked what they did in the movie but damn. They left out a Lot of cool parts from the book in the movie. in the move the kid was great, i can't wait to see him in the other chapters in the story. Don't get me wrong i liked them both, i just have to separate them from each other. However the book was better.

    In I Am Legend, a plague has decimated the world, and those unfortunate enough to survive are transformed into blood-thirsty creatures of the night.

By day, he stalks the sleeping undead, by night, he barricades himself in his home and prays for the dawn.

    Don't get me wrong I love the Will Smith version of the movie. But this book is so much better & i wish they would make a version like this.
