Book Review: Dangerous Brains

Get it here: Dangerous Brains

This was an extremely well written apocalyptic novel. In the veins of SkyNet, The TV show Revolution and all the other SciFi flicks, that always ask us what happens once machines take over the world; this book seeks to answer the hypothetical question of how do we get there? How do the machines evolve to that point of intelligence and how do we stop them from wiping us out of existence?
You are dropped in the middle of this book and it grips you from the first few pages, like a movie plot it is unrelenting in its tempo and just when you are comfortable with the info you have gained, you get new players and new circumstances thrown at you.
Regardless if this book is true or not (and I hope it isn’t) it was entertaining, and detailed. It used flashbacks to flesh out details that were important, but they did not detract from the story and it never even gave me pause while reading it. The twists and turns, of this story were brilliantly carried out (was Vladimir involved? What is Cronus’s mission exactly?) And the end was surely unpredicted. A great book, I loved it and couldn’t put it down.
