really liked it

Sllllooooow starting and then it wasn't. This is written/told as a series of entries from a variety of sources cataloged during the rise of Archos, an AI that takes over the "minds" of computers (which are everywhere in this not too distant future). Archos' goal is to create a world that reveres life, but where mankind is only a minimal player. It's a little gory, so be advised if you're squeamish. I could totally see this being made into a mini-series, anime (Japanese animation wouldn't shy away from the more graphic bits), or graphic novel. I've not finished it yet, but am enjoying the ride.

EDIT - I finished this and then went on to AMPed. I don't have much to add other than I enjoyed this book although its premise isn't particularly innovative. Sci-fi AI tasked with saving/helping mankind nearly always ends up killing mankind "for its own good."
