book Humans have a bad tendency to use weapons unnecessarily and indiscriminately Of the many times I had been shot, a depressingly large percentage of hits had come from clients who were trying to help me Another significant percentage came from clients who had just wanted to shoot something when I happened to be standing there We made it outside to the pedestrian plaza and I asked her, Do you need a medic I thought she might be sick If I was human and I d had to be in a pavilion with all those other humans for the past two hours, I d be sick I said, If I thought he was going to hurt you, I d be disposing if his body I don t fuck around, either Hey, is that you It was loud, right in my ear, and I almost screamed It was a feed contact but so close it was like it was already inside my head Who are you It said, I m Murderbot 2.0 If this is going to be like one of those shows with the character trapped in a strange place and then ghosts and aliens come and mess with their mind, I just can t do that right now But I couldn t ignore it I mean, I guess I couldn t Ignoring stuff is always an option, up until it kills you Mel 4.75I was having an emotion, and I hate that Martha Wells, Exit

humans relate to each other and how those with either body dysmorphia or Asperger s aspects might view their role in human society, this is the series for you It is about friendship even when those we love might not understand what friendship is Families like mine, who have someone dealing with certain spectrum of autism in members of our family or social circles, would gain a lot of perspective as well as recognize a lot of the behaviors in Murderbot and some of his friendsI don t want to be human Dr Mensah said, That s not an attitude a lot of humans are going to understand We tend to think that because a bot or a construct looks human, its ultimate goal would be to become human That s the dumbest thing I ve ever heard Martha Wells, Exit StrategyI have no words to express how much joy this book brought me and I would really like to share it with as many people as I could possibly reach The writing is simple, but very appropriate for the subject, and the plot in the first four novellas as well as in this fifth volume, but first full size novel, is meticulous and deliberate, but the interpersonal relationships between the characters is what makes this story shine The constant running internal monologue Murderbot shares with the reader is awkward, uncertain, insecure, and so very human, that I laughed and cried in equal measures And even though he is one of the grumpiest,easily annoyed and impossibly stubborn creatures you could meet, he will steal your heart and bring optimism and light to your soulPossibly I was overthinking this I do that it s the anxiety that comes with being a part organic murderbot The upside was paranoid attention to detail The downside was also paranoid attention to detail Martha Wells, Exit StrategyHighly recommend this series for everyone, and you should definitely read the series in order not good for a stand aloneIt was very dramatic, like something out of a historical adventure serial Also correct in every aspect except for all the facts, like something out of a historical adventure serial Martha Wells, Exit StrategyNow I wish you all happy reading and may you always find what you need in the pages of a good Book Everything I was hoping for To be honest this full length book was no different from the previous novellas except in its number of pages Murderbot was still its cranky, sarcastic, amazing self The story went from one action sequence to the next And that special little bit of magic that Wells weaves into her writing to keep the reader captivated was still there.Loved the return of ART who is

earlier books, especially the previous encounter with ART, to fully appreciate all that goes on Easily five stars for me Marvellous Incredibly readable and deeply humane depiction of a friendship,

s some really good creepy stuff Spectacularly readable So many feelings Oops, I said the f word Murderbot is going to be cross with me But I can t help myself Since my loss, the release of this book

feel that I can write reams on this alone but I ll have to wait until my second or third re read I loved the way Ms Wells how the Preservation folks and ART came together even if Murderbot didn t Of course, the most shocking development of this book is that Murderbot and ART have a relationship quotes aren t mine, they are Muderbot s I also loved the setup for the next book s , because we know for a fact they ll be together It was so cute how excited ART was to meet Dr Mensah We got some explanations as to part of ART s function, met some of his crew and metPreservation folks We also got to learnabout alien remnants and why they re so dangerous I m not sure I got what was the bad guy hoping to achieve but the techie explanations in this series usually go over my head in the first read I m hoping to get some clarity when I read it next Is this the start of the SecUnit revolution Or whatever Loved the addition of Three and Murderbot s realization that its quirks are not because its a SecUnit but it s its own person I liked how the 2.0 issue was resolved because otherwise, this would have been too much like the Bobiverse Really glad that Preservation folks were important part of the plot Ratthi my favorite of them all and really liked the addition of Amena Also, I know Murderbot said that Dr Mensah was his teammate but to me, she slike its mom.A few quibbles I wish Murderbot and ART would have talkedabout what they were so mad with each other Saying I apologize for calling you a fucker wasn t enough for me I know this would involve talking about feelings, but it s not as if ART doesn t know how to force difficult conversations Hoping this will come about in future books I don t like that Dr Mensah is referred as Amena s second mom because it makes it seem like she s secondary Why not go with mother mama mom Corporations as evil, eevil, eeevil I m sure this resonates well with readers these days but at the end, Corporations are groups of people and I don t like the assumption that everybody in Preservation is good because they are sort of socialists while everybody in the Corporation Rim are bad because they re capitalists I hope we won t have to wait 1.5 years for the next book and that some Preservation folks make it to future books Amena will be a good candidate, although probably not for this next mission In the meantime, I have some new shows to watch Lineages of the Sun or Timestream Defenders OrionRE READ 1Yes, I already re read this book even though it has been out for like a week As always a few things always pop back for me on the re read I get it, the Corporation Rim are the bad guys of the series.I guess Ms Wells point is to explore a world where Corporate excesses are not checked and how bad things can become That said, I still don t like the idea that being a Corporate immediately means you re bad person I think I d like to see a good corporate and a villain from Preservation.I still don t know what the heck the villain s was trying to accomplish here.If somebody got it, please explain it to me What makes a person, a personLike Murderbot, I didn t get why Amena and ART were so upset about the whole 2.0 situation but I got it now I thought of ART as a person so why I was so callous of 2.0 Three as Murderbot s St PaulYou know, the one who actually spreads the word Also, are the files that Murderbot shared with Three his diaries You know, books 1 4 I bought the hardcover so I can go back easier to favorite sections and also, spell the names correctly Seeing the actual book, also made me realize why sometimes I have difficulty figuring out if Murderbot is speaking out loud or just thinking in the audiobook There are so many asides 4.5 5 stars There are few things in life that make me happier than spending time with Murderbot which is ironic, considering it would rather do literally anything than be social The Novellas alone were enough to solidify the series as an all time favorite, so discovering this full length novel was in the works immediate jumped it to the top of my priority list for 2020 Network Effect was every bit as sardonic, action packed, and endearing as the novellas, but took it one step further by a 4.5 5 stars There are few things in life that make me happier than spending time with Murderbot which is ironic, considering it would rather do literally anything than be social The Novellas alone were enough to solidify the series as an all time favorite, so discovering this full length novel was in the works immediate jumped it to the top of my priority list for 2020 Network Effect was every bit as sardonic, action packed, and endearing as the novellas, but took it one step further by adding evendepth to the characters.The unique writing style is the best thing about these books aside from character construction It doesn t follow typical storytelling constructs and often comes across asconversational than anything else There s a great deal of punctuation used to convey Murderbot s sardonic tone, and no shortage of profanity for comedic impact I ve never read anything that comes this close to how I communicate in my daily life, so even the bones of how the story was presented sang to my soul There were a few occasions where the sarcastic voice was a bit heavy handed, but this is one of the few cases I would rather a little too much than not enough.And then we have Murderbot The best character in sci fi, hands down.I think it s my spirit animal It s awkward and introverted and just wants to be left alone to watch its tv serials and I can relate to every single solitary time it couldn t bring itself to people any But the brilliance in this novel is that, social obligational constructs aside, it still craves connection And that s where the story becomes muchthan a action packed sci fi It s about a rogue SecUnit trying to carve out a place for itself in the universe Did Murderbot make me cry Maybe I don t know Fuck off.Recommendations The Murderbot Diaries is in close running with The Expanse and Planetside as my favorite sci fi on the market It s exciting, it s funny as shit, and it has that magic X factor that gets people emotionally invested Start with All Systems Red, and I bet you ll know within the first few pages if it s something you ll enjoy I was hooked from the first sentence, and it has only gotten better from there

rather good at concealing itI was worried about MenYou know, if you don t want to be manually eviscerated with your own energy weapon then maybe you shouldn t go around killing research transports and antagonizing rogue SecUnitsI finally figured out that one of the reasons I love Murderbot so much is that it s my soul sibling MB s preemptive pessimism and expectation of the worst case scenario every time it is faced with a new problem is exactly my modus operandi, although I m rather good at concealing itI was worried about Mensah, if everything had been okay while I was gone I wasn t sure exactly what okay would involve, but I was willing to settle for unmurdered It was too dark for her to see my expression I m not sure what it was but you could probably describe it as skeptical Ratthi says that s how I look most of the timeThis is the first full length Murderbot novel, following four amazing novellas that I only discovered a couple of weeks ago, but already cannot remember what life was like without Murderbot in it I kid, I kid well, mostly In typical Murderbot fashion we have all the snarky sarcastic grumpiness of our prickly media obsessed nonhuman person who is secretly a softie, but if you mention the f word view spoiler feelings hide spoiler to it you have only yourself to blame for what s going to follow We have space exploration and space raiders and alien abductors and sentient killware and contamination by alien remnants, and space flight and explosions and other stuff that tends to result in the catastrophic systems failure and forced systems shutdownoften than not.But what we have at the heart of this story is, of course, the issue of personhood and interpersonal relationships And friendship that other dreaded f wordIn a low voice, Ratthi commented to Overse, Anyone who thinks machine intelligences don t have emotions needs to be in this very uncomfortable room right nowYou see, after a pretty traumatic life of being treated as nothingthanan appliance for a team , a dangerous weapon that can be discarded and abandoned if its human clients need to save their own hides, and being very much an introvert to begin with, Murderbot is not too comfortable with feelings and affection and emotions Not that it does not have emotions those are present in abundance but MB is very uncomfortable expressing them M Bot is a very private person and prefers it that wayRatthi had said, I think you should let it go for a while, at least until we get ourselves out of this situation SecUnit is a very private person, it doesn t like to discuss its feelings This is why Ratthi is my friendMB has its favorite human Dr Mensah, and our old friends from the Preservation Aux survey team from the first novellaJust clients And if anyone or anything tried to hurt them, I would rip its intestines outbut it isthan reluctant to admit how much others can mean to it Especially when a certain ART is concerned, an immense artificial intelligence located in the interplanetary spaceship that Murderbot befriended back in the second novella, and gave it, ahem, an interesting nicknameExcept that I m being held prisoner by a giant asshole of a research transport If I got angry at myself for being angry I would be angry constantly and I wouldn t have time to think about anything else Wait, I think I am angry constantly That might explain a lotMurderbot goes through a complicated and confusing mix of emotional breakdown and a temper tantrum although that last one was mostly justified given all those feelings of betrayal , and tries to come to term with the blatantly obvious fact that its relationship with ART is that of a deeply committed friendship Yeah, I knowIt still sounded disgusting Do you have to call it a relationship Ratthi shrugged one shoulder You don t like the word friendship What else is there I had no idea I did a quick search on my archives and pulled out the first result Mutual administrative assistanceYes, emotional vulnerability is difficult for our SecUnit Can t fault it for that MB s life until a few kilohours ago used to be basically a neverending case of PTSDI yelled, ART, stop talking to my human behind my back You know that thing humans do where they think they re being completely logical and they absolutely are not being logical at all, and on some level they know that, but can t stop Apparently it can happen to SecUnits, tooThe other continuing thread is the right of a sentient intelligent being to self determination and personhood, the overarching theme of the entire series Murderbot s world is the corporatized universe of the future, where planets with their inhabitants are property and indentured servitude to companies is a way of life, and Corporation Rim is a very powerful supragalactic entityCorporations didn t actually invent space and planets, despite the patents the company had tried to fileUnlike theegalitarian and utopian outliers of the Preservation Alliance, Corporation Rim will always view our MB as not a person but property, tool, weapon, appliance, dangerous but disposable And thewe get to know MB theandjarring this feels instead of desensitization the incongruence between what it IS and what the corporate world considers it to be becomesandpainful As it should beI was getting tired of being told what to do Self determination was a pain in the ass sometimes but it beat the alternative by a lotIn the middle of snark and lightheartedness and overall hijinks the serious reminders of SecUnits slavery and subjugationSecUnits are not rabid murderers unless humans specifically order them to beand any of the transgressions even involuntary punishable by torture and death are sobering And anger provoking And poignantI love it when humans forget that SecUnits are not just guarding and killing things voluntarily, because we think it s funAnd no person needs to take that kind of treatment from anyone view spoilerI want you to know if you help me, I ll help you, and that you can trust me Now here s the code to disable your governor module Just because we re both rogue SecUnits doesn t mean we re going to be friends, but I knew if it went back, it would be dead I d hacked my governor module and kept doing my job because I didn t know what else to do except you know, a murderous rampage, but murderous rampages are overrated and interfere with one s ability to keep watching media but that was different from escaping and then going back I said, Because change is terrifying Choices are terrifying But having a thing in your head that kills you if you make a mistake isterrifyinghide spoiler The ending of Network Effect left me so happy and hopeful Because I love seeing our MB grow and develop and find what it wants and go for it The universe owes it that at the very leastConfession time that moment, when the humans or augmented humans realize you re really here to help them I don t hate that moment5 stars Now excuse me as I start my re read already.And now the impatient wait begins for the further adventures of Peri s SecUnit and Asshole Research Transport EDITED TO ADD I caved in and switched the pronoun to Murderbot s preferred it instead of he , based on the word of God Martha Wells Feels jarring but I ll try My review of the first novella, All Systems Red is here.My review of the second novella, Artificial Condition is here.My review of the third one, Rogue Protocol , is here.My review of the fourth one, Exit Strategy , is hereRatthi sighed, leaned against the wall and said, So, you have a relationship with this transport I was horrified Humans are disgusting No Ratthi made a little exasperated noise I didn t mean a sexual relationship Amena s brow furrowed in confusion and curiosity Is that possible No I told her Ratthi persisted, You have a friendship I settled back in the corner and hugged my jacket No Not No Not any Ratthi asked pointedly No, I said very firmly.
