Science Fiction & Fantasy Bookclub #24

robopocalypse-us

For September’s meeting we’ll be reading Robopocalypse by Daniel H Wilson. Wilson holds a doctorate in robotics and uses that to his advantage while describing the worst case robot scenario: war between humans and robots. With a basis firmly rooted in Terminator, while avoiding the implausible actions of those units, plus a dash of World War Z (though without zombies) and maybe a bit of Crichton, Robopocalypse promises to be a page-turner.

Join us for discussion of our current book as well as helping decide our next selection.

This is what you missed at our last bookclub meeting:

We read Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs, a young adult novel featuring historical photographs. Some found the photographs a prop or a writer’s exercise, in some cases poorly worked into the narrative, while others liked the effect they had. Despite some inconsistencies, a few vague points and some lack of characterization, people enjoyed the book and found it an easy read.

When: Monday, September 12, 2011 – 6:30pm-8:00pm

Where: First or second floor of the Noble Tree Cafe 2444 N. Clark Street Chicago, IL

Cost: Free
