Summary

The fourth and final part of the Murderbot Diaries series that began with All Systems Red.

Murderbot wasn't programmed to care. So its decision to help the only human who ever showed it respect must be a system glitch, right?

Having traveled the width of the galaxy to unearth details of its own murderous transgressions, as well as those of the GrayCris Corporation, Murderbot is heading home to help Dr. Mensah - its former owner (protector? friend?) - submit evidence that could prevent GrayCris from destroying more colonists in its never-ending quest for profit.

But who's going to believe a SecUnit gone rogue? And what will become of it when it's caught?

Excellence!

I have only one gripe with this series: they are short!

The story - the intrigue, the mystery, the characters , the main character`s development, the pacing, the action ... all excellent.

Any metaphysical and philosophical musings and insights into the "human condition" are the icing on the top of a very tasty cake. Well, perhaps muffin is the better comparison since, as I say, these stories are a bit on the small side. But so packed with goodness that I do not begrudge the cost. Excellent entertainment value, though it leaves me wanting more at the end of every instalment.

Now very much a fan

Four novellas in and I can honestly say I'm a fan. A committed fan.

If these stories were simply segments of space opera (like those Murderbot watches so avidly), I'd be much less interested. The fight sequences in this novella are great, but again, without Murderbot's internal monologue, they'd be so much wordage. That monologue is absolutely the making of this series. Those emotions which keep encroaching on a sec unit's functionality, the increasing attachment it feels for various humans, and just how much entertainment vids mean, all contribute to a persona we can identify with.

Excellent

Just like the previous books, it's an excellent, fact paced, action packed page turner. Really enjoyed!

good ending

Story was great as expected, though as usual it was too short a story for the price, given he length and cost i'd really expect to be charged the same for all 4 as a bundle. If you do like murderbot I suspect you'll get it anyway. Narration was ok, nothing bad however nothing spectacular. I prefer more expression and depth of feeling in performance, I could have fallen asleep to the relaxed mellow performance.

LOVE this series!

Murderbot stories never disappoint and the narrator of the audiobooks is excellent- the generally sarcastic inflection in the Murderbot’s narration is perfect.

great end to what felt like the first arc

the first 4 novellas really felt like a single book split in 4 , but I enjoyed reading them in smaller bursts , the story is excellent. it moves along at a really nice pace and I'm excited to continue

Good series of short stories

This subject of Ai/ Robot tech and the right to autonomy, seems to be becoming ever more relevant with recent technology advances … moving from sci fi to just fi 😛

Still good but not loving it as much

Didn't feel as invested in this book as previous in the murderbot series but was still a good listen

If only it was not so small each installment...

...to snatch my credits. But hell, I’d do it all again. It’s worth it. Good work.
