World War Z remains one of my favorite books. It's a documentary-style recap of the war against the zombies in the near future. Robopocalypse is the World War Z for the robot uprising, and it's great.

The book is more or less the recordings of a device that observed from the robots taking over to the humans fighting back. The documentary style is there, but not as prevalent as in Z, instead allowing the different storylines to work their way through. It works very well - there's humor, there's some creepy stuff, and the pacing is perfect, jumping from storyline to storyline seamlessly along the way.

If I have any complaint, it would be that the establishment of the book is far superior to the rest, but that still keeps the bar really, really high. Great for anyone who likes science fiction, really. A very, very well-done read.
