  1. “All I wanted to do was watch media and not exist.”

    I don’t know the proper term to use, but that seems to be the cry of our culture today. It saddens me because it shows how empty, shallow and pointless their lives are 😦

    1. Hahaha that might indeed be something a lot of people wish deep down nowadays. Luckily, this Murderbot still goes out of its way to do the exact opposite of what it wished it could do as it battles that introverted cynism, to the point where it appreciates the more social and thrilling stuff. 😀

  2. I was certain you would enjoy this new Murderbot adventure, and it’s true that by now we have indeed developed a fondness for its quirks and tics, so that there would not be a good MB adventure without them 😉
    I like your description of the SecUnit as “”cloned human tissue, augments, depression, rage, and deadly weapons””: it’s just perfect 🙂
    Thanks for sharing!

  3. I think there’ve only been a couple times when I felt the need to skip one of your reviews, but this is another one. Not because I think you’ll give anything vital away, but because I just don’t want to know anything going in, other than it’s about Murderbot. I absolutely LOVE Murderbot! And I’m pleased to see you got some real enjoyment out of this one (or at least I assume so based on the rating). I can’t wait to get a copy and read it myself. I’ve mentioned this elsewhere, but my enjoyment for this series has me wanting to explore more of Wells’ work. Have you read anything else by her?

    1. Hahaha that is indeed rare but I’m definitely glad that we both enjoy this one so much that we wouldn’t dare spoil each other one way or another! I hope you get around to this one soon so you can enjoy it as much as I did, my friend! And no, I haven’t tried anything else by Martha Wells. I honestly haven’t seen or heard anyone talk about her past books too. I’d probably need someone (looks at you) to push me into trying it by going through them first. 😛

  4. A murder mystery set in space? Yes please, count me in! Good to see the series isn’t loosing steam and that Murderbot continues to entertain. No wonder if it has minor existential crisis from time to time though – we all wonder what our place in the world is, but being a human made creation probably makes everything a lot more complicated.

    1. It’s a fun deviation from the other stories, it being a murder mystery this time, I mean! And yes, it’s a common theme throughout these novellas/books and it’s fun to see how it deals with it as it gains experience in all things “human”! Thanks for reading! I really appreciate it. 😀
