I love these books. They just feel so warm and comforting, like a hug, despite the fact that the narrator describes themselves as a murderbot and there are many threats and violent incidents. There’s just something about them that makes them feel cosy.
And I really really do NOT mean that as an insult. I mean that it makes me feel good and taken care of when I read it. It is a good thing.
This is the fourth in the diaries, and possibly the last novella, although I’m pretty sure there will be a murderbot novel at some point, so I am so looking forward to that. But that means that if you haven’t read the others you won’t really have a clue what is happening here, so do yourself a favour and go pick up All systems red and then fall in love with this series and its anxiety-ridden, soap watching, murderbot narrator.
