EPIC. EPIC. I do not care what anyone says. I was engrossed. It reminded me of World War Z, but with robots, and I loved every minute of it.
Who cares if we as a species are SO FAR from having robot companions. The fact that every single piece of technology smart cars, phones, computers, TOASTERS (kidding) is out to get you made the thrill ride better.
ROBOT-meshed humans. Descriptions when robots came alive and threatened the little girl Mathilda and her brother. It just brought so much life to the book.
I'm not going to reveal any of the other characters so I'll save that journey for you to experience...
The characterization, the fact that this was a non-stop action packed adventure where their lives intertwined---I'm excited to see the movie. I'm bad at spatial visualization and exactly what some of the robots looked like---and I can't wait to see scences and the robots come to life.
All I can see is---it was a great futuristic "what if movie?!"
Even the climax was satisfying even though it wasn't what I expected. This book for me---
