    Another adventure with my favorite antisocial A.I. aka Murderbot! You'll love or hate the humor but it works for me. Quite frankly, Murderbot could do anything and I would enjoy it. I hadn't loved book 2 but definitely enjoyed book 3. Will get my hands on book 4! ...

    4.5 stars. Review first posted on Fantasy Literature: Martha Wells? endearingly grumpy cyborg Security Unit Murderbot returns with a vengeance in Rogue Protocol, the third novella in the MURDERBOT DIARIES series. In Rogue Protocol, Murderbot heads off to Milu, a deserted terrafor...

    I?m going to stop reviewing these books because I?m not going to lie: this entire volume could be about Murderbot laughing at a cat video and I would enjoy it. I love the questions this series brings up of what makes a human, and I?m increasingly feeling like the answers are comi...

    "Or Miki was a bot who had never been abused or lied to or treated with anything but indulgent kindness. It really thought its humans were its friends, because that's how they treated it. I signaled Miki I would be withdrawing for one minute. I needed to have an emotion in private." ...

    The good news is that when the robots rebel and decide to kill us all - because let's face it, it's gonna happen - we may have a surprising super-hero in Murderbot. Our favorite snarky, tv-addicted, misanthrope robot can't seem to help him-or-her self when it comes to saving humans. Ev...

    Niki's Narrative Novella Review [Part 3/4]: I braced myself for this book. My trust in this author and this series was so strong by this point that I just hopped in and buckled up without even asking where we were going. And I was treated to possibly my favorite of the bunch (it?s li...

    Urban fantasy has made it to the broken assassinbot AI stage in a big way. Just as much internal monologues as the other field, but this is entirely a corporate/spaceships/planetary colonies kind of popcorn fiction. Is this is as good as the other two delicious entries? I think so. ...

    I received an advanced reading copy from Tor.com in exchange for an honest review. 4.5 stars. I wish to echo Ann Leckie and simply say "I love Murderbot!" The Murderbot Diaries is indeed shaping up to be a fantastic series of novellas that tick all the right boxes, albeit in a...

    This was another fun instalment of Martha Wells The Murderbot Diaries novella series. I'm a big fan of Well's capitalist future gone awry sci-fi world and of her memorable and fantastic lead character, the security unit, Murderbot! Our favourite grumpy, socially anxious, security b...

    More Murderbot? Yes please! Murderbot continues on its mission to find evidence to bring down the dodgy company GrayCris and in doing so gets to visit yet another site where the company committed its crimes. And almost inevitably, ends up having to protect a bunch of humans. The inc...

    ROGUE PROTOCOL, the third entry in the Murderbot series was a lot of fun! This volume was a bit slow going at the beginning but once Murderbot got situated and the action started it became very difficult to put down. It is still trying to solve the mystery that started in the first ...

    Murderbot returns for part three of its adventures and manages to get involved in lots of kill or be killed action. There are humans to save, robots to befriend and other (bad) robots to destroy. These are such good books and I am very pleased I have still have part four to go. Alon...

    4.5 stars Another excellent instalment in the Murderbot Diaries that has me anxiously awaiting the fourth and concluding novella in the series. The main character retains the trademark dry humour that makes Rin's voice so appealing to read. The story progresses nicely and continues ...

    All Systems Red: ??? Artificial Condition: ??? Once again, I find myself liking this, but not loving it. It's basically, "Murderbot saves the humans and makes friends with whatever A.I./bot/computer is around that day." It's cute. Murderbot almost seems more human than ...

    A call from Dr. Mensah sends Murderbot back on the trail of GrayCris, the company that tried to kill all the researchers Murderbot was assigned to protect in All Systems Red. GrayCris is still looking to camouflage its alien artifact recovery schemes, so Murderbot is in a good position...

    There is something about an androgynous (even though I think of Murderbot as a she and will refer to her this way in this review) snarky robot that can kill in an instant but has an obsession with serial shows that are essentially soap operas (as far as I can tell). Snarky Murderbot re...

    Episode III, in which our beloved Murderbot continues its search for damning evidence of the GrayCris corporation?s nefarious dealings. Striving to put right what once went wrong and hoping each time that its next leap will be the leap home. Wait . . . that?s, um. Aw, screw it,...

    4.5* ?Who knew being a heartless killing machine would present so many moral dilemmas? Our favourite Murderbot is back, this time investigating GrayCris by checking out a seemingly abandonned terraforming space station. Naturally, things don?t go to plan. There are pesky hu...

    I loved Murderbot and I loved Miki, and all of the emerging emotions that Murderbot keeps discovering within itself, but the plot felt a bit flat for me with this one, and I found myself just a tiny bit bored. The ending did make up for the middle that dragged just a tad, and I cann...

    Oh, Murderbot. You are such an idiot savant. A security idiot savant. ...

    Not only is Murderbot in full snark while looking for more evidence of GrayCris? criminal activity, but Murderbot is also jealous. Not something it has experienced before, so it?s interesting to see as Murderbot must deal with the loved and coddled robot of a human on a terraformin...

    Murderbot is again witty, sarcastic, grumpy and a little bit on the broken side. All things I love in a hero. They are quickly becoming one of my favorite characters. I?m totally rooting for them way more than any of the humans *shrugs*. I had so much fun with Murderbot and ART in...

    All Systems Red: ??? Artificial Condition: ??? Once again, I find myself liking this, but not loving it. It's basically, "Murderbot saves the humans and makes friends with whatever A.I./bot/computer is around that day." It's cute. Murderbot almost seems more human than ...

    There is something about an androgynous (even though I think of Murderbot as a she and will refer to her this way in this review) snarky robot that can kill in an instant but has an obsession with serial shows that are essentially soap operas (as far as I can tell). Snarky Murderbot re...

    Episode III, in which our beloved Murderbot continues its search for damning evidence of the GrayCris corporation?s nefarious dealings. Striving to put right what once went wrong and hoping each time that its next leap will be the leap home. Wait . . . that?s, um. Aw, screw it,...

    Not only is Murderbot in full snark while looking for more evidence of GrayCris? criminal activity, but Murderbot is also jealous. Not something it has experienced before, so it?s interesting to see as Murderbot must deal with the loved and coddled robot of a human on a terraformin...

    Murderbot is again witty, sarcastic, grumpy and a little bit on the broken side. All things I love in a hero. They are quickly becoming one of my favorite characters. I?m totally rooting for them way more than any of the humans *shrugs*. I had so much fun with Murderbot and ART in...

    Another adventure with my favorite antisocial A.I. aka Murderbot! You'll love or hate the humor but it works for me. Quite frankly, Murderbot could do anything and I would enjoy it. I hadn't loved book 2 but definitely enjoyed book 3. Will get my hands on book 4! ...

    I?m going to stop reviewing these books because I?m not going to lie: this entire volume could be about Murderbot laughing at a cat video and I would enjoy it. I love the questions this series brings up of what makes a human, and I?m increasingly feeling like the answers are comi...

    The good news is that when the robots rebel and decide to kill us all - because let's face it, it's gonna happen - we may have a surprising super-hero in Murderbot. Our favorite snarky, tv-addicted, misanthrope robot can't seem to help him-or-her self when it comes to saving humans. Ev...

    Urban fantasy has made it to the broken assassinbot AI stage in a big way. Just as much internal monologues as the other field, but this is entirely a corporate/spaceships/planetary colonies kind of popcorn fiction. Is this is as good as the other two delicious entries? I think so. ...

    I received an advanced reading copy from Tor.com in exchange for an honest review. 4.5 stars. I wish to echo Ann Leckie and simply say "I love Murderbot!" The Murderbot Diaries is indeed shaping up to be a fantastic series of novellas that tick all the right boxes, albeit in a...

    Murderbot returns for part three of its adventures and manages to get involved in lots of kill or be killed action. There are humans to save, robots to befriend and other (bad) robots to destroy. These are such good books and I am very pleased I have still have part four to go. Alon...

    This was another fun instalment of Martha Wells The Murderbot Diaries novella series. I'm a big fan of Well's capitalist future gone awry sci-fi world and of her memorable and fantastic lead character, the security unit, Murderbot! Our favourite grumpy, socially anxious, security b...

    More Murderbot? Yes please! Murderbot continues on its mission to find evidence to bring down the dodgy company GrayCris and in doing so gets to visit yet another site where the company committed its crimes. And almost inevitably, ends up having to protect a bunch of humans. The inc...

    ROGUE PROTOCOL, the third entry in the Murderbot series was a lot of fun! This volume was a bit slow going at the beginning but once Murderbot got situated and the action started it became very difficult to put down. It is still trying to solve the mystery that started in the first ...

    Murderbot returns for part three of its adventures and manages to get involved in lots of kill or be killed action. There are humans to save, robots to befriend and other (bad) robots to destroy. These are such good books and I am very pleased I have still have part four to go. Alon...

    4.5 stars Another excellent instalment in the Murderbot Diaries that has me anxiously awaiting the fourth and concluding novella in the series. The main character retains the trademark dry humour that makes Rin's voice so appealing to read. The story progresses nicely and continues ...

    All Systems Red: ??? Artificial Condition: ??? Once again, I find myself liking this, but not loving it. It's basically, "Murderbot saves the humans and makes friends with whatever A.I./bot/computer is around that day." It's cute. Murderbot almost seems more human than ...

    A call from Dr. Mensah sends Murderbot back on the trail of GrayCris, the company that tried to kill all the researchers Murderbot was assigned to protect in All Systems Red. GrayCris is still looking to camouflage its alien artifact recovery schemes, so Murderbot is in a good position...

    There is something about an androgynous (even though I think of Murderbot as a she and will refer to her this way in this review) snarky robot that can kill in an instant but has an obsession with serial shows that are essentially soap operas (as far as I can tell). Snarky Murderbot re...

    Episode III, in which our beloved Murderbot continues its search for damning evidence of the GrayCris corporation?s nefarious dealings. Striving to put right what once went wrong and hoping each time that its next leap will be the leap home. Wait . . . that?s, um. Aw, screw it,...

    4.5* ?Who knew being a heartless killing machine would present so many moral dilemmas? Our favourite Murderbot is back, this time investigating GrayCris by checking out a seemingly abandonned terraforming space station. Naturally, things don?t go to plan. There are pesky hu...

    I loved Murderbot and I loved Miki, and all of the emerging emotions that Murderbot keeps discovering within itself, but the plot felt a bit flat for me with this one, and I found myself just a tiny bit bored. The ending did make up for the middle that dragged just a tad, and I cann...

    Oh, Murderbot. You are such an idiot savant. A security idiot savant. ...

    3.5 spacial station stars While on transit , Murderbot is still worry about the interest of the news after a one rogue SecUnit , so decides to take another route - this time to uncover some probably cover up of the same company that tried to wrong the group of PreservationAux. So ou...

    Not only is Murderbot in full snark while looking for more evidence of GrayCris? criminal activity, but Murderbot is also jealous. Not something it has experienced before, so it?s interesting to see as Murderbot must deal with the loved and coddled robot of a human on a terraformin...

    Murderbot is again witty, sarcastic, grumpy and a little bit on the broken side. All things I love in a hero. They are quickly becoming one of my favorite characters. I?m totally rooting for them way more than any of the humans *shrugs*. I had so much fun with Murderbot and ART in...

    I tried hard to keep this free of spoilers, but I might have failed a little. ?There needs to be an error code that means ?I received your request but decided to ignore you.?? Sassy bot is back! This newest novella is full of increasing levels of snark, sarcasm and mental e...

    This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books. This was another great installment in the series! These stories have been a lot of fun and I have found that each one tells a really big story in a rather small number of pages. Murderbot is on another mission in this i...

    4 stars + 1 for extra robot goodness I'm simply loving this series! Upon reflection, I realized just how many of my favourite fictional characters are bots/A.I. so please send any other bot recos my way. ...

    Rogue Protocol was another enjoyable read in the Murderbot series ? I definitely liked it, but I have to admit, it lacked the spark that the two previous episodes had. Here are the things I enjoyed in this book. As Usual For Murderbot, The Crew Is Nice The crew in this book...

    This book had actually been a bit better than previous parts, more action-oriented, less annoying reflections. And I'm quite impressed how Martha Wells had been able to write a (moderately) good book without any character or worldbuilding whatsoever. ...
