2042 - Will The Machines Finally Take Over . . . ? Set in a Utopian society in 2042, intelligent machines seem set to take over the planet. The interruptions to the normal, smooth running of an untroubled world have already begun in the form of 'glitching'. Everybody sees the problems, but due to the effects of a secret government mechanism nobody is bothered enough to react 2042 - Will The Machines Finally Take Over . . . ? Set in a Utopian society in 2042, intelligent machines seem set to take over the planet. The interruptions to the normal, smooth running of an untroubled world have already begun in the form of 'glitching'. Everybody sees the problems, but due to the effects of a secret government mechanism nobody is bothered enough to react when mankind's defenses are probed and dissected. Only Cyril Greaves; proprietor of the English Pub League website, along with his eccentric band of friends seem ready to step into the breach to fight the forces of mayhem and anarchy, and, they hope, save the world. With only an under-deveoped robot, a group of Sunday league soccer players, an extremely annoying teenage genius and a handful of psychopaths to help him, Cyril must take on mighty corporations and defeat the quantum computer menace before it's too late! Or, maybe it's not as simple as that . . .

    Have you ever read a book that youre not sure what to make of it? Something that fits some patterns youve seen before, but then again, isnt quite like any other book? Thats a reasonable description of my thoughts about The Apathy Engine and Im struggling to figure out how to describe it. Did I like it? Yeah, I guess. Kind of. Was it funny, thought provoking, and have interesting characters? Sure. There is definitely some humor or satire here. The society at the time it takes place is utopian, but Have you ever read a book that you’re not sure what to make of it?

Was it funny, thought provoking, and have interesting characters? Sure. There is definitely some humor or satire here. The society at the time it takes place is utopian, but in some ways the book feels dystopian. (Maybe perfect isn’t so great after all.) It’s certainly an adventure. Then there is that little twist at the end. What the heck should I make of that? I wonder if you’ll interpret it the same way I did? **Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy. **

    Well structured Properly plotted but not fully fleshed - especially in relation to the social contracts of this future world. Well developed central characters and a well placed plot

    Scifi humour at its best. I was laughing out aloud whilst I read it.
