Publisher's Summary

The epic and highly anticipated conclusion to the listener-favorite series that had countless Audible listeners (and employees) hooked from the very first Bob—featuring, as always, a flawless performance from the inimitable Ray Porter.

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.

Still stinging from getting their collective butts kicked in their first encounter with the Others, the Bobs now face the prospect of a decisive final battle to defend Earth and its colonies. But the Bobs are less disciplined than a herd of cats, and some of the younger copies are more concerned with their own local problems than defeating the Others.

Yet salvation may come from an unlikely source. A couple of eighth-generation Bobs have found something out in deep space. All it will take to save the Earth and perhaps all of humanity is for them to get it to Sol - unless the Others arrive first.

    "Mistake was made and corrected"

    My initial assumption was correct - the recording came without the last hour/14 chapters, but now it contains the full book. You just have to redownload it. If Audible can contact early buyers they should do so, because it would be a great shame if they wouldn't be able to experience a proper closure to this great series.

    Story
    "Loitering in the stone age and missing opportunity"

    I really liked the first book, was a touch underwhelmed by the second book and hate myself for disliking the third.

    I am sad to say that I have found this third instalment very superficial in that it gave the impression of simply typing up all the loose ends to close the series and introducing no interesting or new concepts. What's more I found a lot of characters and thought processes unrealistic.

    The others were building a dyson sphere in the book 2 and I half expected this to be about Matrioshka brain of the others versus parallel computing of the Bob, but all it came down to was just a big old fight with nukes and lasers and I felt that it was a missed opportunity to make the story thought-provoking like a culture novel would. The fact that the others were barely even mentioned until chapter 63 was another irritant in my opinion. Instead, this sc-fi novel lingered for at least four times as long as it needed to on the stone age deltans.

    Lastly, I have spent an unreasonably large amount of effort to not just stop listening when the colony council decided to attack one of Bob's clones in an effort to retain their power over the colony, after having been warned and dismissing Bob's objections and concerns and after Brigitte's daughter has done everything possible to annoy the Bob clone.

    BOB! the God-like AI that controls weapons, food and everyone alive owes their life to! If It were me, I would let it go taxidermist on my mother if it felt like it, but apparently in the Bobiverse, everyone and their dog are happy to just underestimate and dismiss the all-powerful being, with neither respect, gratitude, awe, nor fear motivating them to at least taking heed to Bob's input.

    I did once again tear up at the funeral scene however, but I think that speaks more about y being a mellow wreck of a person with age, more than anything.

    I am very sorry, but I did not like this book.

    I really enjoyed the first two books but this one felt rushed. I enjoyed the story but it could of been so much better.

    "Best story series I've read since Wheel of Time"

    This is quirky, engaging, scientifically plausible in a way so many stories fail to deliver, has enough shiny references to star trek and science fiction franchises to make a big bang theory or Firefly fan very very happy, and manages miraculously to make a lot of Bob's individually personalised and uniquely geek-qualified. Didn't bugger up the ending either...satisfying closure, very well written, very well read.

    "Another fantastic continuation of the Bobiverse!"

    Loved It? Absolutely!

    Narration? on point as always. Despite all being Bob's, the differences in the narrator's voices, and inflections, are incredibly well done!

    All I can say is I've enjoyed all three Bobiverse books so much, I put the series in my top 10. I hope this is not the end of them. I want to hear more about their adventures and how the Bobiverse, and bobnet expands.

    "A satisfying wrap up to most of the story arc"

    I'm going to try to avoid any spoilers, but what a spoiler is for you may not be a spoiler for me, so be warned!

    first of all let me just say the narrator for the previous books and this one is just fantastic at giving each of the bob's their own personality's and quirks, made the whole listening experience that much more enjoyable.

    Hot off the back of book 2 I was eager to read more about the conflict with the "others" more than anything, but the book leaves most of that plot for the second half, which was personally frustrating for me but ended up for quite an exciting and tense listen and totally worth it in the end.

    The story with the Deltans was enjoyable and emotional and wraps up in a very natural way, however part of me thinks Taylor has left a little "something" there that may mean we might hear from the Deltans sooner than expected.

    the human relationship story lines have always been the least interesting for me, I enjoy reading about the solutions the bobs need to come up with to tackle the logistical and often human created problems, but some of the romantic stuff just felt a little forced, the questions and ideas that story line tackled are very interesting ones but ultimately didn't grab my attention fully and I was just waiting for the chapter to end.

    Medieros is still about and causing problems for the bobs, without saying too much I really hope we get a POV chapter from him one day, or maybe just a little more insight in to what makes him tick!

    the book itself ends in a really neat and satisfying way, with a few story threads left for (hopefully!) future books.

    I'm almost upset with myself for tearing though it so quickly, despite some little issues I had with it, this series has been has been one of, if not my favourite in recent years and the thought of having to wait for more is making me wish I had a stasis pod of my own!.

    "I need more"

    Absolutely loved the Bobiverse. So much better than it sounds. It's like a collection of awesome short stories all intertwined into one epic universe and overarching plot. I want to load up a backup from a few months ago so I can listen to them all again.

    "Neatly Tied Up"

    A nice trilogy. No big surprises but a delightful story. You can follow the logic and relate to a lot of the feelings. Even if you're not a self replicating AI.

    "A fitting but weak conclusion"

    Not sure why, but I didn't enjoy this book as much as the previous offerings. I really wanted an engrossing encounter with the Others and the Medeiros probes. Instead it was a little touchy feely relationships saga which didn't interest me as much. At least I have the conclusion ?

    "Clean ending to a fantastic series"

    Note: Early readers need to redownload to get the complete book!!
    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. As with any series ending, you always wish there was more, and this book didn't feel as complete as the others, but was still a great read. The conflicts that arose were varied, and exposes the depths of humanity's desire for power and self interest. They were not as complex as in the previous two books, and the resolution came about a bit easy at times, but it didn't take away my enjoyment. Besides, we wanted to get to the battle with the Others anyway. Again, it was over a bit too quickly, but definitely gives you a sense of finality. The only minor sticking point is the Medeiros story line doesn't feel as complete. There are some real emotional highs and lows in this book I don't want to come close to spoiling. Overall a great end to a fantastic series.

    Ray Porter's performance is amazing.

    Do not read this book without finishing the previous two.

    "Satisfying End to a Fun Series"

    It took a while for this one to get going for me but by the end of it I felt completely satisfied. Taylor wraps up all the loose ends and gives fitting endings to all of the characters. In keeping with the other 2 books, this one kept the balance of humor, pop culture references, heartfelt moments, and action. Ray Porter continues to show why he is one of the best in the business. I look forward to his future works.

    I hope that this is the ending. Not because I'm glad it is over but rather I would hate to see it be brought back and have the conclusion tainted. The subjective nature of the ending is something that my friends and I are continuing to discuss and that is what makes a great story.

    Overall: 4.75/5

    Great ending to the Bob series. I was completely entertained from start to finish. Nothing too heavy or too gory, but definitely not adolescent either. I appreciate the balance in this series.

    "Worthy..."

    This being the third book in the Bobiverse trilogy, I was hopeful it would hold true to the previous two books - and it did. Well written, well narrated, well enjoyed (by me). I'd recommend this trilogy to anyone who enjoys some nerdy humor, exciting star battles, and space exploration. It's a good Sci-Fi series in all, and this third book is the icing on the cake.
