    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Again, top-notch world-building and a bravura piece of storytelling in novella format: hats off to the author. I started to read this pretty late in the evening and ungluing myself was truly an act of abnegation. Murderbot, ART (short for Asshole Research Transport) and their world ...

    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...

    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...

    Again, top-notch world-building and a bravura piece of storytelling in novella format: hats off to the author. I started to read this pretty late in the evening and ungluing myself was truly an act of abnegation. Murderbot, ART (short for Asshole Research Transport) and their world ...

    4.5* Like many, I absolutely loved the first Murderbot novella and couldn?t wait to see what Wells had in store for us. The plot is somewhat ?simpler? than in the first but this was not a problem for me, especially since the focus was on Murderbot?s sentience, and that of...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    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. ...

    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...

    As good as the first, maybe better. Pretty amazing book. Lots of LOL moments. I'll write up my notes, but really, just go read Tadiana's: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show... And then, go read the book! Thanks to Tadiana for reminding me that ART = Asshole Research Transport[...

    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...

    Again, top-notch world-building and a bravura piece of storytelling in novella format: hats off to the author. I started to read this pretty late in the evening and ungluing myself was truly an act of abnegation. Murderbot, ART (short for Asshole Research Transport) and their world ...

    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...

    Murderbot <3. I feel like just making that one word and its accompanying symbol my entire review, but that would be doing a disservice to the book and also to anyone potentially reading this review who has not yet let Murderbot into their lives. Murderbot is life. Murderbot i...

    Murderbot with a conscience :) Odli?no za ?itaoce ali za samog robota i ne previ?e. Ovog puta imamo malo vi?e detektivsku pri?u dok Murderbot (zabavna re? :) ) poku?ava da iskopa neke stvari iz pro?losti. Usput se sprijatelji sa brodksim AI-om koji isto voli da gleda serije, na...

    The awesome Murderbot is back, and on a quest to understand what happened to it at the mining colony when Murderbot went rogue. On its way back to the colony, Murderbot interacts with a transport ship, dubbing this ship ART, who actually ends up being tremendously useful at getting Mur...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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. ...

    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...

    As good as the first, maybe better. Pretty amazing book. Lots of LOL moments. I'll write up my notes, but really, just go read Tadiana's: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show... And then, go read the book! Thanks to Tadiana for reminding me that ART = Asshole Research Transport[...

    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...

    Again, top-notch world-building and a bravura piece of storytelling in novella format: hats off to the author. I started to read this pretty late in the evening and ungluing myself was truly an act of abnegation. Murderbot, ART (short for Asshole Research Transport) and their world ...
