A scavenger robot wanders in the wasteland created by a war that has destroyed humanity in this evocative post-apocalyptic "robot western" from the critically acclaimed author, screenwriter, and noted film critic. It's been thirty years since the apocalypse and fifteen years since the murder of the last human being at the hands of robots. Humankind is extinct. Every man, woman, and child has been liquidated by a global uprising devised by the very machines humans designed and built to serve them. Most of the world is controlled by an OWI--One World Intelligence--the shared consciousness of millions of robots, uploaded into one huge mainframe brain. But not all robots are willing to cede their individuality--their personality--for the sake of a greater, stronger, higher power. These intrepid resisters are outcasts; solo machines wandering among various underground outposts who have formed into an unruly civilization of rogue AIs in the wasteland that was once our world. One of these resisters is Brittle, a scavenger robot trying to keep a deteriorating mind and body functional in a world that has lost all meaning. Although unable to experience emotions like a human, Brittle is haunted by the terrible crimes the robot population perpetrated on humanity. As Brittle roams the Sea of Rust, a large swath of territory that was once the Midwest, the loner robot slowly comes to terms with horrifyingly raw and vivid memories--and nearly unbearable guilt. Sea of Rust is both a harsh story of survival and an optimistic adventure. A vividly imagined portrayal of ultimate destruction and desperate tenacity, it boldly imagines a future in which no hope remains, yet where a humanlike AI strives to find purpose among the ruins.… (més)

An entertaining scifi romp in a world after a robot-apocalypse , where the surviving bots struggle to survive an ongoing war of attrition against super-AIs, climate change, parts shortages, and severe PTSD. Not terribly deep, but fun. ( )

This book reads a lot like the novelization of an unproduced screenplay. You’ve got post-apocalyptic sci-fi about a misanthropic robot who helped exterminate humanity wrapped up in a road movie punctuated with firefights and explosions.

None of the characters are particularly pleasant or sympathetic, but they are at least sort of interesting. I never believed for a minute that they sounded like robots, though. They’re constantly foul-mouthed, sarcastic and quippy, and they mostly just feel like humans verbally sparring in a nineties B picture.

Compare that to Martha Wells’ Murderbot series, which features a main character who feels just inhuman enough that you believe them as an AI construct, but so compelling that you completely buy into their character.

This book was action-packed, and I did generally enjoy reading it, but I felt like the characters never redeemed themselves, and the setting and tone wore out their welcome. ( )

This was such a good book. I actually listened to it through an audiobook, and the narrator did an amazing job, which I really think helped sell this book for me.

The flow between going from present to past was flawless in my opinion. I never once got confused as to what time period I was dealing with. Each of the Robots had great personalities that made it easy to like them for who they each were individually [including the crazy ones]. The main story was intriguing, and it was fascinating seeing Robots act the same way humans act. A few big headed robots want all the control and slowly start to force their beliefs on to the other smaller robots, only it goes a few steps further due to them be artificial. I loved every piece of the story and it kept me wanting to hear more. A few parts were kind of dark and honestly really shocked me as I was absolutely not expecting it, but it made all the better.

I also appreciate the author taking the time to explain why the Robots have female/male pronouns. It doesn't get explained until a little more then half way through the book, but its there and it made sense to me and I liked it. ( )

This is well-written, but I kept getting stuck on the why of Brittle. Brittle is a robot, and no humans are about. Yet Brittle -- and all of the robots Brittle encounters -- acts exactly like a human. I kept thinking of the difference with Ann Leckie's Ancillary series, where I never lost the fact that the mani character is mostly machine. ( )
