The Kingdom by Jess Rothenberg is a must-read for fans of HBO’s WestWorld. If you haven’t started watching WestWorld yet, don’t have HBO, don’t understand or approve of piracy, and want to watch in the best quality, you can use this link to get the BluRay for the complete first season from Amazon.
This is also an excellent read for people who don’t want to get involved in the whole convoluted series of WestWorld (especially Season 3, which takes things to a whole new level). This book is a good stand-alone that gives you the main idea all at once without having to get invested in a series.
