    One thought on “XOM-B”

    1. This is the zombie apocalypse with a fantastic twist. The zombies are late, the robots have already wiped out humanity! I'm not quite sure what inspired me to pick up this crazy sounding robots vs zombies story, but I'm glad I did as it proved to be an engaging and compelling read stuffed full of action, mystery, cool sci-fi, and even a bit of romance. Above all it characters one could really love and root for. Freeman has lived a sheltered life. Not a surprise considering he is only 16 days old [...]

    2. I can't believe I read another zombie book. I have an aversion to zombie fictions tracing back to the 70's from watching "The Night of the Living Dead". But this book happily had more action than gore and was actually kind of fun. You see it also has robots (which I absolutely enjoy). So kind of a yin yang experience for me.Anyway the plot was interesting, and what I thought were plot holes were actually attempts to misdirect. The plot seemed a little choppy but it turned out very satisfying and [...]

    3. Yes, this is a zombie novel, but no, it is not like any other zombie novel you have ever read! Jeremy Robinson has taken a subject matter that has been done in so many ways over the years, and given a whole new take on zombies, how they came to be, what they are, and what their reason and place in the world is. It's hard to review this without giving away spoilers so I'll say this: if you're a fan of Zombie stories - read this; if you're not a fan of zombies particularly but like the post-apocal [...]

    4. Buy this book, and put whatever you're currently reading down.Never, have I read a book as brilliant as Jeremy Robinson's new masterpiece, XOM-B and it's highly unlikely that I ever will, again.Being an avid horror and sci-fi fan, I liked the idea of zombies and robots mixing it up in a novel. Tittilated, I purchased the kindle edition, opened it up and read. And read, and read, until it was all gone.Did I say liked? I mean LOVED.Seamlessly written, engaging, and with a mind boggling twist that [...]

    5. In XOM-B Jeremy Robinson once again immerses the reader in a world that, in just a few short years, could be our reality. While I'm not generally a fan of zombie books' I AM a fan of Jeremy Robinson.XOM-B can almost be seen as a cautionary tale in some waysover the last few decades man has been increasingly dependent on technology, especially computersWhere will this lead the human race? In XOM-B, Jeremy Robinson explores the slippery slope man might be on toward our own demise.XOM-B is definete [...]

    6. I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book - robots, zombies and great writing what more does a person need from a book? So much so, that as soon at it arrived and I was greeted with the choice of reading or sleep, I chose to read and I definitely don't regret that decision. As always, Jeremy Robinson has written excellent characters that you love or/ and hate in equal measure. I thought Xom-B was fantastic, it incorporates lots of thoughts on what it is to be human, with nasty enemies and a f [...]

    7. XOM-B by Jeremy Robinson was definitely a different take on the whole viral outbreak and zombie apocalypse theme in a very good and interesting way! From the moment I started the book I felt invested in the survival of Freeman, rooting him on and holding my breath when he was in trouble. XOM-B brings us to what could very well be our future thanks to the advancements in technology, but will we learn from their mistakes? Probably not. An excellent, hard to put down read!

    8. Once again Jeremy Robinson defies logic and pumps out another amazing hit of a book. Xom-B is at the same time vintage JR, and yet a totally new direction for him as well. If you like zombies, futuristic action, and science fiction at its very best, this is the book for you! I LOVED IT!

    9. Full review over at Fantasy Book Critic OVERVIEW/ANALYSIS: XOM-B by Jeremy Robinson is quite a story; I was intrigued by its blurb and cover which promised a fascinating crossover between I, Robot & The Walking Dead. Safe to say the author managed to surprise me with his plot and the way the story ended.XOM-B opens by introducing us to what are later revealed to be events such as “the Awakening” similar to the Civil Rights movement of the 60s. Set in the tumultuous events set between 205 [...]

Listened for Review (Brilliance)Overall Rating: 4.50Story Rating: 4.50Character Rating: 4.50Audio Rating: 3.50 (not part of the overall rating)First Thought when Finished: Xom-B by Jeremy Robinson was a very interesting twist on the traditional Zombie story. I enjoyed it from beginning to end!Story Thoughts: OMG! Seriously I was caught off guard by how much I enjoyed Xom-B (especially since I decided to give it a whirl because it seemed odd BUT I was prepared to be underwhelmed). It was odd, uni [...]

    11. From the description:Freeman is a genius with an uncommon mixture of memory, intelligence and creativity. He lives in a worldwide utopia, but it was not always so. There was a time known as the Grind—when Freeman's people lived as slaves to another race referred to simply as "Master." They were property. But a civil rights movement emerged. Change seemed near, but the Masters refused to bend. Instead, they declared war. And lost. Now, the freed world is threatened by a virus, spread through bi [...]

    12. The next sci-fi fantasy epicwith zombiesd robots here! Jeremy Robinson's newest tale is a dystopian future story with its own identity, reminding you of nothing you've read before and yet reminding you of a lot of things you have read or seen at the same time. This is not a zombie novel, they are just in it. That is part of what makes it so unique and original. I dare not discuss plot or characters, save to say they are a good cast and several of them will stand out as some of Jeremy Robinson's [...]

    13. Once in a while you read a novel which some would consider entertaining, pure science fiction, or simply light (fun) reading; however, you find it to be filled with vision, an exploration of possibilities, and a chance for discussion with others about "what if". Jeremy Robinson brought these last three to life for me in his new novel, XOM-B. It might be considered just another zombie book, but believe me, it isn't. Robinson has taken the idea of zombies to a whole new level which personally, I f [...]

    14. Wow, did Jeremy Robinson over deliver above and beyond my expectations. Xom-b is a refreshing and different zombie, sci fi thriller with everything you need for a gripping story and hopefully a new series. Robinson blew me away with the multi-faceted layers and themes found throughout the book like slavery, freedom and class structure, survival of the fittest and human evolution, genocide and global domination to name a few. His characters are very believable. From our protagonist Freeman to Lus [...]

    15. I would recommend this book to everyone. Even though the title suggests its about zombies, it is so much more than that. Wow, and the much more is awesome! Without giving anything away the characters are the best part of the book, in my opinion. The action is non-stop and the story keeps you so engrossed you don't want to put it down even for a minute. All the tech described is a little more than I understand, but for the tech nerds out there, they will love it. Glad to see that there wasn't muc [...]

    16. Based on the cover blurbs I thought it was not that good in comparison to what was said about the book. It rolled along fairly quickly for more than half the book, but then became bogged down in "wrap the story up mode", and sometimes that is a huge distraction from the story itself. The ending was not that surprising I suppose, not that it was predictable in any way, but getting there was cumbersome and left me feeling less than satisfied with the book as a whole. This book could easily have be [...]

    17. This was the most painful book I've endured in a long time. I kept hoping it would get betterbut ended up with a cluster of headaches from all the eye rolling. What the heck was going on? Robots, zombies, slavery, genocide, evolution, the human condition, man vs. machinePICK ONE and then do it well. This book was nonstop actionbut went in circles and left me confused and frustrated. The first person writing was painful. It was so rigid and mechanical. It makes sense with the storyline, but that [...]

    18. Let me start out by saying that when I was thinking of reading this book, I thought "I don't like zombie books", but I love Jeremy Robinson's books. So, I decided to go ahead and read this book. And WOW!! I am so glad I did!! This book has Zombies, Robots, High tech sci-fi, even a rather cute love story.But with that said, Xom-B was the most amazing book I have ever read. Robinson is following in the tracks of some of the greatest authors out there. If you love zombie books read it!! If you can' [...]

    19. I thought the writing was workmanlike, as one can usually expect from the thriller fiction out there these days. it may have sci-fi elements but it's a thriller novel. The idea had a clever enough twist on the zombie subject, and had plot twists that were interesting, but you had to go through a lot of bland action sequences that were predictable. Also predictable were most of the revelations in the novel. In all, it was a quick and light diversion with some interesting quirks, but nothing beyon [...]

    20. Not your ordinary Zombie bookI must confess that I am not a real zombie fan and do not usually enjoy reading about them.BUT, This is such a different take on the genre that I thoroughly enjoyed it - Freeman and Heap are great characters to love and the baddies are such boo hiss baddies that you revel in their nastiness.Read this and see what you think - the ending for me was a jaw dropper and I will have to go re-read this one soon

    21. I'm not big on zombie books, however this isn't your normal zombie book either. Jeremy took a pretty common theme and totally put some twists to it. I couldn't put this book down, it was a thrilling story from the beginning to the end. I have enjoyed all of his books but something about this one just really grabbed me!! The ending was fabulous!!!I recommend buying this book stopping what you are doing and reading it!!! You can't go wrong.

    22. This is so much more than another zombie story. The character of Freeman was intriguing to me from the start. I found it so interesting to watch him learn and discover what kind of person he wanted to be. I loved the way this story was wrapped up and explained in the end. The audio version of this book was amazing!

    23. Ist eine von mir so absolut nicht erwartete Herangehensweise an das Thema Zombies !! Hat mich gegen Ende doch sehr positiv überrascht !!

    24. I’d have to say that this was a fairly enjoyable book to read as long as you don’t think about it in any great detail. The story encourages this by being a linked series of chase and fight scenes with ever so brief pauses in between where the side characters refuse to answer the aphasic main character’s questions. By the time the story finishes up, its focused on answering questions the reader didn’t need or want answers to, while ignoring the little things that cropped up in the book th [...]

    25. Okay, this one was really weird for me. Like a few other books it has just 1 or 2 things that end up coloring the rest of the experience.First off, the characters are fine. The more I think about it the more I think they are a little 2 dimensional. But I didnt dislike them. The writing is straight up good. I dont think its great, but it is pretty good. The story is interesting, almost unique. I kind of guessed where it was going early on, but it was a decent trip.What struck me as odd was the re [...]

    26. what a hidden gem! writing style and story are superb - particularly given the ridiculousness of the topic. it's awe inspiring to see someone take a concept as silly as this and create a legitimate work out of it. i will definitely have to start looking into more titles from this author, as this has become one of the more memorable books I've read in some time!

    27. A fun read but trashy. Action after action after action with Zombies abounding and amazing escapes. You work out the twist early and then at the end it tries to get serious. It fails. Not enough time spent on the philosophy and the message. There is a glaring error in the robot vs human identification that makes the whole thing lack.

    28. Not my genre of book I guess , I really tried to enjoy this book. Forcing myself through it, but I couldn't. Not that the book was a bad book, it just wasn't the book for me. I felt the beginning was slow and boring in my opinion.
