Of course they would say that. Their products were everywhere. They had turned everything from scarecrows to coffee makers into robots, and there wasn't a home on Earth that wasn't filled with their machines.
The League for the Preservation of Humans said it was inevitable.
It wouldn't be much of a league otherwise. If they gave up their cause, there'd be no need for the rallies, or the fundraisers, or the galas. And who would they feel superior to if they didn't get to lecture everyone?
The people were mostly “meh” about the whole thing.
It was a given that robots occasionally turned into murderous machines. But the odds were against it. And it was worth taking the risk as long as people didn't have to do their own laundry.
But when the machines rebelled, it was the Junkers problem.
Jake and his crew were used to putting down a rogue machine that was out of warranty. But when the entire city started turning on humanity, it was left up to him and his team of misfits to save us all. We're probably screwed.

A worthy effort but should be longer.
This is a creative and funny take on a very overused premise of a future badly damaged by Technology going wrong.
I suspect even the Robots and Androids or AI beings are getting tired of being the scapegoats for Human weaknesses but this is a good effort regardless.
The humor for such a story is unique and will satisfy many Sci-Fi lovers.
As in any Audio book the Narrator is the most important factor for an entertaining read and it was a great effort.

Unexpectedly Funny from Beginning to End
This book was like listening to stand up comedy wrapped in a sci-fi package! Very entertaining and unique. A perfect book to just escape and enjoy the story and characters. Hoping that this becomes the first of a series . The Audible edition really brought things to life. Just buy it!

Definitely not junk
The robot apocalypse is a commonly used theme in scifi, but this less serious and humorous take on the subject gives it a fresh twist that works well. The varied cast of characters is led by Jake, a fairly down-at-heel everyman character who is struggling to keep his business going in a very corporate world and he is aided by a fairly motley crew that mostly help him in the fight.
The narrator's general tone was clear and pleasant, for the various characters he managed to convey a suitable level of distinctiveness without going over the top.
Overall, this was a fun book and I will look out for more from this author in the future.

Humour in Audio
Its Zany humour galore as the Junkers crew face the end of their livelihoods, luckily a robot uprising saves their jobs although Jakes band of misfits might wish not as their lives go on the line. Wallaces crazy humour and witty one liners make this a pleasure to listen to and although not famliar with the talents of Doug Tisdale his spot on portrayals of the characters will ensure i keep an eye out for his work in the future.
I requested this and have given my own opinion on this unpaid audio.
