I'm sure that all of you are avid readers. I'm thinking about starting a book this summer, and my favorite idea so far (because I'm a nerd) is something along the lines of a Robot vs Zombie war.
The basic plot idea is that the robots become self aware (like they will eventually do) and attempt to get rid of the human race, through a virus, this virus backfires on the robots by turning humans into zombies. The zombies then fight back grow intelligent and attempt to regain control of the earth.
My protagonist ideas are now from the point of view of either a Robot, a Zombie, or Human Survivors. The pro of Robots is that it would be an interesting writing style, the con would be it would be basic and robots don't have emotions. The pro of Zombies would be it hasn't really been done, but what would be the true motive for zombies? As for Human Survivors, It's been done sooo many times, I feel like I might be running it into the ground, but it would be a good third person view of the entire situation.
Sounds like a cool idea. The genre isn't really my cup, so at first I was going to go with humans. But if it's been done to death, how about just an omnipotant PoV? That way you can swap back and forth between the three and give all three their own unique voice.
I've entertained that idea quite a few times. I think I might do that. So as far as I can see it I'm going to move forward with this book. I think I'll start on it on Saturday or so, depending on what people are doing. Thanks for the input though. Hopefully, some other people will read this post and provide some more feedback, but who knows.
Like what was said earlier, I think possibly getting everyone's perspective would be fine. But if you were to decide to focus on one race, maybe split the book into 3 parts and just have each part focus on one race's perspective.
Part One: A.I.
Part Two: The Last Remaining Citizens
Part Three: Zombie Apocalypse
This could be fun, text me when you get this, I'd want to help maybe.
