The lowest bidder safety isn't a primary concernOn a distant planet a team of scientists are conducting surface tests shadowed by their Company supplied 'droid a All Systems Epubself aware SecUnit that has hacked its own governor module and refer. First time around I was on crack and gave this 4 stars Now it s in it proper place at 5 stars I loved the hell out of it The book was awesome for such a little novellaOmg I love MurderBot She s awesome and she s a she to me that was all kinds weird and rhyming Anyway I love MB s personality I don t feel like rambling on so I m just going to add a few uotes They will contain some SPOILERS so be warned I could have become a mass murderer after I hacked my governor module but then I realized I could access the combined feed of entertainment channels carried on the company satellites It had been well over 35000 hours or so since then with still not much murdering but probably I don t know a little under 35000 hours of movies serials books plays and music consumed As a heartless killing machine I was a terrible failure Mensah came to do her own check of the hopper and told me to pack some extra emergency supplies for the DeltFall staff I did it and I hoped for humans sake we would need them I thought it was likely that the only supplies we would need for DeltFall was the postmortem kind but you may have noticed that when I do manage to care I m a pessimist This is why I didn t want to come I ve got four perfectly good humans here and I didn t want them to get killed by whatever took out DeltFall It s not like I cared about them personally but it would look bad on my record and my record was already pretty terrible Everyone stood there uiet I could tell from their expressions they were all thinking hard The HubSystem that controlled their habitat that they were dependent on for food shelter filtered air and water was trying to kill them And in their corner all they had was Murderbot who just wanted everyone to shut up and leave it alone so it could watch the entertainment feed all day The problem I was going to have is that the way murderbots fight is we throw ourselves at the target and try to kill the shit out of it knowing that 90 percent of our bodies can be regrown in a cubicle So finesse is not reuired What was I supposed to do kill all humans because the ones in charge of constructs in the company were callus Granted I liked the imaginary people on the entertainment feed way than I liked the real ones but you can t have one without the other Happy Reading Mel MY BLOG

All Systems Red

S to itself though never out loud as Murderbot Scornful of humans all it really wants is to be left alone long enough to figure out who it isBut when a neighboring mission goes dark it's up to the scientists and their Murderbot to get to the truth. When I heard the premise I expected a light robot killer story from the PoV from the robot Probably a PI mystery kind of thing because that seems to be pretty hot right now I can rattle off a handful of titles like this right nowSo What did I get A fun and light robot murderer who hacks herself to have free will and she stops murdering to watch SF sitcoms instead Honestly that s pretty cool Yeah her official bruiser job is still there but her mechanical heart isn t really into it Who can blame her It s pretty boring until she finds that she really wants to protect people after allThe plot s fairly simple the prose is light and the premise rolls right along It s mystery fluff with a hard SF chassis Just what the engineer ordered

In a corporate dominated spacefaring future planetary missions must be approved and supplied by the Company Exploratory teams are accompanied by Company supplied security androids for their own safetyBut in a society where contracts are awarded to. Confession time I don t actually know where we are I hadn t looked at the maps yet and I d barely looked at the survey package In my defense we d been here twenty two planetary days and I hadn t had to do anything but stand around watching humans make scans or take samples of dirt rocks water and leaves The sense of urgency just wasn t there Also you may have noticed I don t careI can relate to Murderbot the misanthropic construct who is contracted to provide security detail for a small expedition to a planet Murderbot as the AI calls themselves MB is sexless and has not chosen a pronoun is plainly uncomfortable with personal attention and has little interest in anything outside entertainment videos and the bare minimum reuired to do their job I have to confess that sounds like me during most of my adolescent years at every family event ever just substitute a book for videoWritten as a novella the plot takes off from page two It isn t long before both Murderbot and the team realize they re facing multiple types of danger Characterization is one of the outstanding parts of the story with Murderbot s nature getting a lot of subtle build The team never stood out to any great degree but that s partly because until this expedition Murderbot has had generally negative experiences with the people they have been contracted to protect and assumed this group would be of the same The leader Dr Mensah soon distinguishes herself with crisis management and leadership It was starting to occur to me that Dr Mensah might actually be an intrepid galactic explorer even if she didn t look like the ones on the entertainment feed while an augmented human Gurathin presents a different kind of challengeMy one hesitation in calling it a five star book is the ending which felt somewhat awkward and incongruous to the personality of earlier Bot which displayed little curiosity or independence I read the story twice the second time doing the math on the length of time Bot has been independent I m guessing around four years based on its own estimate of 35k hours since it failed to become an uncontrolled killing machineb The resolution felt like a shortcut and like a logic failure in Bot s circuts But I m open to discussion on itFinal resolution aside I certainly enjoyed the ride I predict some kind of award nomination next seasonA further note from 2020 This is the first novella in a series of four with a novel after Technically they all are independent installments a lot like the serials Bot is so fond of watching However once I was able to re read them as a group instead of as released I found the overall emotional arcplot extremely satisfying and probably even better than as installmentsI thought it was likely that the only supplies we would need was the postmortem kind but you may have noticed that when I do manage to care I m a pessimistMe too Murderbot Me tooFour and a half stars rounding up because
