The central character is highly original and robots have never been characterised so well since Iain Banks. He is a human/robot construct who should be under control from his programming but has managed to hack the program to have some free will in his decisions. He goes on to have a different adventure in each of the 4 stories and save people from the evil, stop-at-nothing-for-profit, mega-corporation, making some decent friends with people/bots that he meets on the way. If you like hard SF with realistically-drawn future technology then you will like this.
Wait until the price goes down before buying and read “Sea of Rust” or “Windup Girl” or any of Bank's Culture Series books (such as “Player of Games” or “Excession”) in the meantime. These are all excellent full-size books which contain well-characterised drones/robots and they are all sold at a reasonable price.
That said I’d advise avoiding this until the price of the four books is the same as the average length novel they will then represent. I will certainly not be buying any more Martha Wells at this kind of price (just under £6 each) in future. And that includes further outings, if any, for the murderbot.
Your mileage may vary of course, but I’m not encouraging this kind of pricing with my money.
All well and good but the truth is that these are not really books. The entire series could be folded into one decent sized book that would justify the price. Instead what you really pay for is a few chapters of that big book for a premium price.
The wonder of it is that I have continued to do so. I guess Martha Wells is a great author in the genre.
However, this is the last time I do it. Whilst I love the 'books' the price is ridiculous for what amounts to little more than a novella. The story is a five star one but the excessive costs push it to one star. So three stars is a reasonable weighting for this overall I feel.
This is the fourth in Martha Wells' series and a more than satisfying ending to the story started in All Systems Red. The main character (the aforementioned Murderbot) has grown and developed so much since that first book and just keeps getting better. They have learned how to mimic human mannerisms, how to blend in with crowds without wanting to kill everyone and, more importantly, how to care about humans. They even have to deal with those pesky emotional responses every now and then, which isn't exactly what Murderbot wants but for some reason they can't make them stop.
If you haven't read any of the Murderbot Diaries yet I'd strongly recommend you start with book one. This is character driven sci-fi at its best and includes some ridiculously well-written action sequences. I could easily see this getting turned into a TV series at some point (fingers crossed), and I can't wait for the novel that's due to drop next year.
This final novella in the Murderbot series zips smartly along like all the others, and ties back neatly with the characters from the first instalment. Murderbot continues to be snarky, and continues to run rings around tech defences. This being the last instalment, there are several times where it is not at all clear how things are going to pan out. There is a satisfactory conclusion, but I do want to see more Murderbot tales, and maybe in meatier novel for next?
