Takes a while to get going but when it does it’s a fantastic creation of characters, plot and fantasy. And Nick Podehl nails the oration as usual. Actually downloading the next in the series whilst typing this ...

Being a sentient spaceship really should be more fun. But after spreading out through space for almost a century, Bob and his clones just can't stay out of trouble. They've created enough colonies so humanity shouldn't go extinct. But political squabbles have a bad habit of dying hard, and the Brazilian probes are still trying to take out the competition. And the Bobs have picked a fight with an older, more powerful species with a large appetite and a short temper.

Brilliant series, loved every minute of it. Fantastic plots / characters combined with excellent narration made it hard to stop listening. Three books in 4 days is ridiculous... . Easy to see why its was so well recommended.

With the exception of the prepubescent innuendo and sex scenes that sound like some thing an over imaginative teen would dream of these are a good listen and make for an enjoyable series

Good story only slightly let down by the monotone character voicing which made following conversations slightly challenging at times. Apart from that a good story well narrated.
