I really liked some other works by new sci-fi author Daniel Wilson. This one was pretty good, too, but wow was it, indeed, like a robotic World War Z. But it was chronological rather than sporadic, so I did appreciate that more.

Reading books like this make me think, "if everyone who worked with futuristic technology was just well-versed on sci-fi topics, we'd never have these sorts of problems." Like, how about we don't just create super-intelligence artificially anywhere near anything that could possibly connect them to the internet.  Which is pretty much nowhere now that wireless communication is ubiquitous.
