Robopocalypse by Daniel H. Wilson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This one has been on my list for a while, discovered somewhere online. It seemed right up my alley. I was reminded to tackle it after my friend Emily read it recently, and I wanted to see if my impression lined up with her criticisms. This book continues my post-apocalyptic theme. It was another very fast read – I devoured it in two sessions in a total of about 3 hours.
Spoilers are below the cut, although the narrative style of the book (found documents) makes that largely moot.
A few weeks ago, my cousin Mark had an extra ticket to the American Craft Beer Fest (ACBF). After a lot of waiting in line in the rain, and some initial confusion as to whether a digital copy of my ticket on my phone would be acceptable, I got inside and started tasting brews. I tried to branch out into varieties I don’t usually drink, but I generally wasn’t convinced. I also tried to avoid repeats, and targeting breweries that I haven’t seen available in stores in this area. I ended up trying 23 beers in a couple of hours. It’s a good thing Mark remembered to bring pretzels!
Quick comments on beers below the cut. If you follow me on Untappd, these are repeats. The highlight of the show was decidedly DC Brau’s On the Wings of Armageddon, both for the awesome name and for giving me another super-hoppy imperial IPA to enjoy.
