Matty I finally finished your book Robopocalypse. Very entertaining but did leave me wanting wanted a tad bit more. Maybe an epilogue or even a sequel although a sequel might be overkill. Scratch that, don't write a sequel.

Since receiving this book, I frankly didn't know you existed but now can't wait to get out and read the rest of your stuff! Good job mate, you got yourself a new fan :)
