All Reviews Top Tier (4 to 5 stars)

All Systems Red [Murderbot Diaries #1], by Martha Wells

5 out of 5 stars. Murderbot is cynical, philosophical and most of all plain entertaining.

5 out of 5 stars

So, this is the famous Murderbot! I have to thank Carol on for bringing me into the fold – MB was referenced in a bunch of her reviews, so I decided to hit it up. Boy, what a joy ride!

First of all, Murderbot is totally relatable to me. It makes a great protagonist, it’s my new spirit animal. And the way it mostly not cares (or pretends to not care – MB, you’re a softy deep within, I can feel it!) actually makes it a great hero. Well, anti hero, but that is a prominent position. I sometimes think the best heroes are anti heroes.

So, read this! You won’t regret it.
If you do not like it, I hereby give you permission to complain about it to me.

* Orders a SecUnit, just in case

⚠️ warning, spoilers ahead!

The last part off the story was not that big of a surprise to me. I think leaving it’s guardian to be it’s own Murderbot actually makes sense in terms of being truly free and ungoverned.
