I loved this hilariously entertaining space opera.
Let’s talk characters. I’m pretty sure I’m a robot as I’ve never related to the main character of a book this much until I discovered Murderbot. Sarcastic, socially awkward, to-the-point. A robot created by man, but there’s so much character growth that I wasn’t expecting. He is on a mission with a group of scientists, constantly internal conflict between loving and hating them, and the interactions are hilarious and heartwarming at times.
Space Exploration. While All Systems Red has great characters, this is an action-packed space opera, and it had me on the edge of my seat the whole way through; Always wondering what’s next.
This novella is just under 200 pages, and the plot progresses quickly, and we get so much packed into such a short time. You’re hooked with the mystery of the mission, entertained with humor, action, and the MC interacting with the world around them. The ending made me smile and wonder what’s next for Murderbot.
The only thing wrong with this book is that it’s too short, but I’ve already ordered the next one.
Update: I already finished the next one; read the review of Artificial Condition (The Murderbot Diaries, #2) now.
