The world has become a place of comfort, where a shopping trip means heading to the first floor to collect new food tubes for the printer. Menial tasks, like cleaning up or cooking, are relegated to robots, and Robert’s job while finishing school is to maintain them. With only three classes remaining, he’s hoping for something better. 

Then everything starts to glitch: 
the robots, the building, and even the people. 

What starts as glitchy videos, misbehaving touch-screens, and random fighting, grows into a race against time to fix the problem before it escalates. Maybe he can land a cushy programming job in the process, but this virus is more than it appears...

Sci-fi story built for tech lovers.

When most of us dream of the future, things like not having to clean up tedious messes or worry about cooking every single meal are typically commonplace. Plenty of images of the future contain robots, space-age gadgets, and a technology based society, where life is the easiest it's ever been. With any good sci-fi fantasy though, there has to be a wrench thrown in, that our hero needs to pull out, so he can save the day.

In this story, that job falls on Robert, who just happens to dream of more out of life than what's currently in front of him. While he hopes to find a good job, a part of him still sees things a little differently than those around him. In a race against a virus that is far more dangerous than anyone realizes, he is pushed to find answers that will not only change the way his world works, but how he sees the world itself. 

Well written and set to a quick pace, this novel will keep you hooked til the ending. I'm not the biggest sci-fi buff out there, and when it comes to technological stuff like writing code and figuring out machines, I have an interest, but am an amateur at best. Still, I found this book to be compelling and easy to understand, making the entire story more enjoyable. Often times books like this lose me by being overly wordy and technical, and without a degree from MIT, I doubt I'll understand most of them. This one was comfortably on my level, or at least written in a way I could grasp, for which I am grateful.

I would recommend this book to any sci-fi fan - I'll be surprised if you don't enjoy it.
