    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....

    "Great Story and Narration"
    Overall

    A lot of this book reminded me of World War Z. The format is somewhat similar in that the main character is describing past events in a somewhat similar fashion to Z's interview format.

    The story takes a bit to get off of the ground, but once it does, it is highly enjoyable. The narrator does a great job with all of the characters and rarely seems out of place. I always hate narrators where you can't get past the voice work, but this was a great job.

    Robopocalypse is a great novel and a great audio book. I highly recommend this one.

    The end begins with a viral outbreak unlike anything mankind has ever encountered before. The infected are subject to delirium, fever, a dramatic increase in violent behavior, and a one-hundred percent mortality rate. Death. But it doesn't end there. The victims return from death to walk the earth. When a massive military operation fails to contain the plague of the living dead it escalates into a global pandemic.

    Would you listen to Plague of the Dead again? Why?

    An entertaining story and a great bit of narration.

    On a side note: was anyone else cracking up at Brewster? He reminded me of Corp. Hicks from Aliens.
