    A novella at the price of a full novel

    Nice book, very well written, but, although it is priced as a book, it is just a novella. 11+ euro for slightly more than 100 pages...

    And now for something completely different

    “I hated caring about stuff. But apparently once you start you can’t stop.” I love The Murderbot Diaries. The only problem I am having is reading these out of order. Martha Wells’ series of stories about Murderbot are snarky, sometimes in questionable taste, but a lot of fun. No one takes Augmented Humans like her completely seriously; which leaves them “scratching their programming” when something new and different comes along. Makes you wonder how Murderbot was programmed originally and what “flipped the switch”? Here she makes “friends” with a “pet robot” Miki, (who makes me think of the song “Tomorrow “) and she hates “pet robots”. IMHO, Murderbot hates that she’s part human because it means she has to care...kind of a Catch-22. Highly recommended 5/5

    Great page turner sequel in excellent series

    this is a great series. relatively bite size novels, with plot carrying forward from the first exciting book in the Murderbot series... in this one we see the murderbot character evolve but also remain its sardonic wry self... it's 1st person narrative voice is a pleasure and carries us through another page turner... again likely most enjoyed by anyone tech oriented (lots of jargon as our hero lives part of its life in the computer world...) but fully accessible to even the most paper-based ludite... strongly recommended.

    Oh Miki!

    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 installment that kept me glued to the pages once again. Murderbot wants to find out what is really going on with the GrayCris Corporation. The SecUnit poses as a security consultant when it encounters a group of people off to explore an abandoned facility. The group has a bot, Miki, that they consider to be their friends which is somewhat confusing (and annoying) to Murderbot. Of course, things go wrong and there is lots of action and excitement as Murderbot works to help save the day. I really enjoyed seeing Murderbot interact with Miki who was a very different kind of bot. Murderbot has seen people at their worst and expects for problems to occur while Miki has been treated like a trusted member of the group and seems rather innocent in its manner of thinking. I really enjoyed being inside Murderbot's head as it worked to process a solution for the problem at hand. I can't wait to start reading the next installment.

    Great characters

    I love the way the characters are portrayed. Really get a feeling that they are people and not just things
