This is a very poorly written book. I actually couldn't read most of it it is so bad. I fail to understand how it gets good reviews. I blame our education system I suppose. Its not even really written at the level I'd expect from a pre-teen author. If you were to watch a poorly thought out tv show and narrate it for a blind viewer, it might work out close to this. The author can't even decide on past or present text, even within the same sentence. Who is the editor of this book? Do they speak English I wonder. Anyway, I ended up skimming through it a little and the good news is nothing happens so you don't have to worry about spoilers. I've heard other books from this author are superior, but I remain skeptical.

I really, really enjoyed Robopocalypse (despite getting kinda burned out on dystopian/apocalypitic SF) but Robogenesis seemed to me to be mostly about creating a sequal to make more money. The first book ended on a complete and satisfactory note, then this book begins in a way that gives the ending away and then ends without any actual conclusion. I am assuming that this is so another sequal can be written. I think I will pass.

Robogenesis is book 2 of Robopocalypse. I truly enjoyed the first book and when I found out there was a second book... I had to read it! Wow... this book was amazing! The mind of Daniel H. Wilson is very creative. I just couldn't put this book down! Now that I've finished this book, I truly believe Daniel H. Wilson is coming up with book 3! This truly is an amazing book, and I recommend it to every SciFi fan out there!!! ***I've noticed that many reviews here had no "Spoiler Alert" warnings and gave away key information to the story ending. That is just wrong! Before I got this E-book, I read some of the comments and that bothered me greatly.

Robogenesis picks up 3 years after Robopocalypse ended.
We're still here, but scattered and disjointed. Some of the
augmented people have attempted to re-join humanity, but are
not welcome in most enclaves. Some of the machines are working to stop
ARGOS from continuing the war against us, and some continue to evolve
beyond their original programming. Takeo Noumura and his AI lover Mikiko
may be on the brink of finding another way to fight, but sacrifices must
be made and not everyone will survive. This fast, action packed read
helps remind us what being human & really means.

I enjoyed coming back to this world for the second installment as I enjoyed the overall theme/question of human vs. machine.

I agree with danomcd- this is markedly inferior to the original [which wasn't that great either].
It's sequel-itus: to try to compensate for the lack of freshness the author threw in plot complications. He even ended with a cliff-hanger.

Unfortunately, I found this to be very difficult to read. I really did not understand why each chapter was started by a pre-statement from the evil artificial intelligence - which often did not seem to reflect what then was written. In summary the book was okay but very choppy - and not nearly as good as the first book in the series.
