‘Silly Title, Nice Storytelling’
OK, so from the title it’s another ‘War Against The Machines’. What makes this one different?
Well, like many of the books it talks about our increasing dependence on technology and how we’d cope when that’s taken away. What’s different is the tone of the story, and the way it’s told. It’s similar to the way World War Z is told – that one is an oral history and this one isn’t, but the multiple viewpoints is similar (even though there’s more repetition of viewpoint characters here than WWZ).
I really don’t like the title though. It’s very Sharknado-like, and that’s not a good thing.
