Book Review: All Systems Red by Martha Wells

All Systems Red (The Murderbot Diaries, #1)All Systems Red by Martha Wells

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Absolutely loved this. Murderbot is a security AI for an expedition trip that is going horribly, horribly wrong. Come for the planetary exploration, stay for the wry wit of the AI that hates interacting with humans, wants to be free, wants the humans it has been assigned to to be safe, and is sighing about the whole thing.

Really, it’s as if Marvin the Depressed Robot from Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is a trained serial killer who just wants desperately to be left alone to its own devices and watch some anime.

You’re welcome.
