    "I was stalling. I would have to interact with humans as an augmented human... I had imagined it as taking place from a distance, or in the spaces of a crowded transit ring. Interacting meant talking, and eye contact. I could already feel my performance capacity dropping." It was wi...

    An awesome sequel to the Nebula award-winning ?All Systems Red.? I liked it even better than the first book! Final review, first posted on Fantasy Literature: The illicit adventures of Murderbot continue in Artificial Condition, the terrific sequel to Martha Wells? 2017 Nebula...

    The good news is that I still love Murderbot and that I now also love ART. The bad news is that I unfortunately didn't like this book as much as the first one. I couldn't get into the story until half way through it. I still very much look forward to reading the next awkward adve...

    I said, ?Sometimes people do things to you that you can't do anything about. You just have to survive it and go on.? They all stopped talking and stared at me. It made me nervous and I immediately switched my view to the nearest security camera so I could watch us from the side....

    These Murderbot Diaries are quickly becoming a go-to popcorn SF read for me. I love killer robots as much as the next bloke, but I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for this one. It's not just the hundreds of hours this mass-murder-capable robot pours into his/her SF soap opera...

    If you're into stuff like this, you can read the full review. Star-gazing SecUnits: ?Artificial Condition - The MurderBot Diaries 2? by Martha Wells ?But you may have noticed that for a terrifying murderbot I fuck up a lot.? In ?Artificial Condition - The MurderBot...

    When we first met the SecUnit Murderbot in Martha Wells? ?All System?s Red?, it had already hacked its governor module, which is ostensibly in place to prevent it from going on a kill-happy rampage. In truth, it had already (apparently) gone on said rampage when it was ?under...

    Murderbot is a security robot (aka Secbot or Secunit). Murderbot is a name it gave itself after being involved years ago in a massacre of the humans it was supposed to be guarding on a remote mining moon. Murderbot is part human material with a lot of augmented mechanization. Murderbot...

    I love Murderbot! What's not to love about a depressed, soap-opera watching, socially awkward, killing machine? People are nervous of me because I'm a terrifying murderbot, and I'm nervous of them because they're humans. This book is a continuation of our robot-with-low-se...

    Martha Wells's fantastic sci-fi novella Artificial Condition was a worthy sequel to the equally awesome All Systems Red. This series is everything an AI sci-fi story should be and then some! It was thought provoking but also entertaining and engaging. Wells's sci-fi world of corpora...

    Niki's Narrative Novella Review [Part 2/4]: My feelings going into AC were tentative optimism. After all, sequels are never as good as the first, right? So if this could hold up to even 75% on how much I enjoyed All Systems Red, then I?d be good. The first few chapters were slowly pa...

    ARTIFICIAL CONDITION is the second novella length installment of THE MURDERBOT DIARIES. This one worked better for me than the first. I'm not going to go into the plot as the synopsis and many other reviews already do that. I just wanted to say that the humor seemed more innate thi...

    I received an advanced reading copy from Tor.com in exchange for an honest review. 4.5 stars. An awesome sequel to All Systems Red, Artifical Condition pumps up the fun and action. Before I continue, please note there may be minor spoilers from the first novella in my review b...

    I just adore this series. I had so much reading this second book and cannot wait for the last two books to be released. Martha Wells has created a wonderfully vivid world here, with a character at its core that is brilliant, funny, and relatable ? and a murderbot. Murderbot is the ma...

    In which Murderbot finds a friend and gets a job. I love Murderbot and its way of thinking, trying to work out what makes humans tick, trying to protect, learning to work with others. I loved the section on his developing friendship and what they could bond over. Recommended series #cy...

    Well, I had a blast. Perhaps not as action packed as the first book, but I find main character?s personality and voice simply irresistible. It?s amazing how easy it is to connect with and care for this shy socially awkward robot. Martha?s Wells ironic tone and subtle humour reall...

    ????? The appalling lack of carnage continues in Episode II: Attack of the Clones when everyone?s favorite ?Murderbot? goes searching for answers to its hazy past. With no clients to serve, it?s free to do as it pleases, but it?s bored of wasting its lifespan sto...

    Thrilled I got to read this a bit early - more thoughts closer to the publication date. I loved this just as much as the first one, though I did miss Murderbot's first crew. But I really enjoyed the new characters here... clearly Murderbot and ART are just the tip of the non-human iceb...

    Book 2 in the Murderbot series which is turning out to be really good indeed! In Artificial Condition our main character, self styled Murderbot, sets out to discover the truth of the events that occurred in Book 1. A lot of help is provided by a bored sentient transport ship called...

    All Systems Red: ??? I am enjoying this series. Don't let the 3 star rating fool you. It means "I liked it" - I really did! I just don't love it, but these are so short and entertaining, you just tear through them. Murderbot (the genderless security bot) is fun. They seem so h...

    4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2018/06/07/... All hail Murderbot! So glad to be back for another round of action and adventure with our favorite SecUnit. I am unequivocally loving these novellas, and it still amazes me how much punch Martha Wells has man...

    I thought Murderbot all on their own was great in the first book, but then they teamed up with a semi-sentient ship better known to the reader as ART or (Asshole Research Transport) and everything was even better. Our favorite Cyborg SecUnit self titled Murderbot has left the trave...

    Murderbot finally returns, and I've been impatiently waiting for it ever since I read the first installment. It's by far the most exciting novella series I am following right now. I did not expect this direction! And I definitely approve. It was slow going at first and I wasn't sure ...

    An excellent installment in the Murderbot Diaries. Can't wait for Rogue Protocol. ...

    Definitely another fun continuation to the series. I really enjoyed the sarcastic and silly mementos between ART and Murderbot in this one, and two boys together made for an interesting mix. The author does a great job of convincing you Murderbot is not quite human, but also the empath...

    Another solid story by Martha Wells. The continuation of this story is certainly keeping me interested. I didn't think it was as strong as book one, but I think a lot of that was the first book had an original side to it, with us learning all about the personality side of the Murder Bo...

    A quick read. Which annoys me even more considering the ridiculously high price of the ebook. I even considered docking a star of the rating for that, but it wouldn?t be fair to the story. It was good, but not as good as the first installment. I found it a bit thinner on plot and...

    I love Murderbot! What's not to love about a depressed, soap-opera watching, socially awkward, killing machine? People are nervous of me because I'm a terrifying murderbot, and I'm nervous of them because they're humans. This book is a continuation of our robot-with-low-se...

    I thought Murderbot all on their own was great in the first book, but then they teamed up with a semi-sentient ship better known to the reader as ART or (Asshole Research Transport) and everything was even better. Our favorite Cyborg SecUnit self titled Murderbot has left the trave...

    Murderbot finally returns, and I've been impatiently waiting for it ever since I read the first installment. It's by far the most exciting novella series I am following right now. I did not expect this direction! And I definitely approve. It was slow going at first and I wasn't sure ...

    An excellent installment in the Murderbot Diaries. Can't wait for Rogue Protocol. ...

    Definitely another fun continuation to the series. I really enjoyed the sarcastic and silly mementos between ART and Murderbot in this one, and two boys together made for an interesting mix. The author does a great job of convincing you Murderbot is not quite human, but also the empath...

    Another solid story by Martha Wells. The continuation of this story is certainly keeping me interested. I didn't think it was as strong as book one, but I think a lot of that was the first book had an original side to it, with us learning all about the personality side of the Murder Bo...

    A quick read. Which annoys me even more considering the ridiculously high price of the ebook. I even considered docking a star of the rating for that, but it wouldn?t be fair to the story. It was good, but not as good as the first installment. I found it a bit thinner on plot and...

    4.5 stars I thought this was excellent. I absolutely love the voices Wells has created for her characters. They are all so distinctly individual and unique. ART was a definite favourite and I hope we see this character again in future instalments. In this one Murderbot continues...

    When we first met the SecUnit Murderbot in Martha Wells? ?All System?s Red?, it had already hacked its governor module, which is ostensibly in place to prevent it from going on a kill-happy rampage. In truth, it had already (apparently) gone on said rampage when it was ?under...

    Murderbot is a security robot (aka Secbot or Secunit). Murderbot is a name it gave itself after being involved years ago in a massacre of the humans it was supposed to be guarding on a remote mining moon. Murderbot is part human material with a lot of augmented mechanization. Murderbot...

    I love Murderbot! What's not to love about a depressed, soap-opera watching, socially awkward, killing machine? People are nervous of me because I'm a terrifying murderbot, and I'm nervous of them because they're humans. This book is a continuation of our robot-with-low-se...

    ARTIFICIAL CONDITION is the second novella length installment of THE MURDERBOT DIARIES. This one worked better for me than the first. I'm not going to go into the plot as the synopsis and many other reviews already do that. I just wanted to say that the humor seemed more innate thi...

    I just adore this series. I had so much reading this second book and cannot wait for the last two books to be released. Martha Wells has created a wonderfully vivid world here, with a character at its core that is brilliant, funny, and relatable ? and a murderbot. Murderbot is the ma...

    Well, I had a blast. Perhaps not as action packed as the first book, but I find main character?s personality and voice simply irresistible. It?s amazing how easy it is to connect with and care for this shy socially awkward robot. Martha?s Wells ironic tone and subtle humour reall...

    Thrilled I got to read this a bit early - more thoughts closer to the publication date. I loved this just as much as the first one, though I did miss Murderbot's first crew. But I really enjoyed the new characters here... clearly Murderbot and ART are just the tip of the non-human iceb...

    Book 2 in the Murderbot series which is turning out to be really good indeed! In Artificial Condition our main character, self styled Murderbot, sets out to discover the truth of the events that occurred in Book 1. A lot of help is provided by a bored sentient transport ship called...

    All Systems Red: ??? I am enjoying this series. Don't let the 3 star rating fool you. It means "I liked it" - I really did! I just don't love it, but these are so short and entertaining, you just tear through them. Murderbot (the genderless security bot) is fun. They seem so h...

    4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2018/06/07/... All hail Murderbot! So glad to be back for another round of action and adventure with our favorite SecUnit. I am unequivocally loving these novellas, and it still amazes me how much punch Martha Wells has man...

    I thought Murderbot all on their own was great in the first book, but then they teamed up with a semi-sentient ship better known to the reader as ART or (Asshole Research Transport) and everything was even better. Our favorite Cyborg SecUnit self titled Murderbot has left the trave...

    Murderbot finally returns, and I've been impatiently waiting for it ever since I read the first installment. It's by far the most exciting novella series I am following right now. I did not expect this direction! And I definitely approve. It was slow going at first and I wasn't sure ...

    An excellent installment in the Murderbot Diaries. Can't wait for Rogue Protocol. ...

    Definitely another fun continuation to the series. I really enjoyed the sarcastic and silly mementos between ART and Murderbot in this one, and two boys together made for an interesting mix. The author does a great job of convincing you Murderbot is not quite human, but also the empath...
