really liked it
Read in January, 2013

Autonomous swarming killer drones set in motion by mysterious powers can only be defeated by crack super-competent semi-rogue commandos who first rescue and kidnap the dedicated young professor of mycology whose ant colony research provides the key to defeating these stealthy four-rotored mechanical threats to world peace.

I borrowed it for my son, read it for myself, and enjoyed it well enough. It's not great literature. It's a techno-thriller. A single love scene is as sensuous as a concrete block. Unresolved plot lines are rampant. Yet and all, it's a quick, "action packed", fairly well-written and provocative romp through a near-future dystopian world of omnipresent corporate/governmental surveillance and swarming, chemical sniffing, flying, autonomous, killing robots - close enough to reality, in a certain sense, to qualify as a pleasantly disturbing way to spend a few hours.

(I knew that home ant colony terrarium would enable me to save the world one day!)
