And yes, one shouldn't focus on how long a book is and instead enjoy the superb writing and characterisation .
But, the fact is that this isn't a cheap 'book' and just as I was getting into it, it ended. Boom - finished.
Let's look at the positives. The main character is a fantastic one. Murderbot is basically a space travelling Reacher with more morals (perhaps). Given he is a robot it's incredible how Wells has made him such an engaging 'person' whom you really invest emotional energy into.
Wells writing is finely crafted and superb. This lady really can write, no doubt about it.
However, it's impossible to get away from the truth which, is that Wells short changes her reading public with relatively expensive books which can be read in an hour or so. That's not good enough because the cost is similar to far better known writers putting out proper books. I have no issue with paying for what I read but I am getting hacked off with being sold part of a book.
It is a a nice fun novella to read, it has Murderbot, it has some of our Preservation friends, it has a nice detective plot. I just feel it threads water a bit. That would not be so obvious after Exit Stratagy when the next logical step is how does Murderbot fit in with Preservation. But we already know the answer to that question from Network Effect. Whats more Network Effect is a thrill-fest which opened up the universe so much and spurred on so much growth in Murderbot that going back in time felt frustrating.
There's already an excellent summary of the book in its description, and I'll avoid spoilers. Existing readers know what to expect. Our anxiety-riddled robots character grows once more. Fugitive telemetry continues the story of Murderbots journey. It's developing relationships whilst seeming more human than the humans it struggles to understand. I was worried about the detective storyline; however, it works somehow. We still see action sequences, and the two combine to develop the paradigm of murderbots humanity.
Since I read the first Murderbot story, I've felt Robocop is the inspiration. Both are more machine than a small organic, mostly brain, component. Both appear human and work in a human world. They had their minds wiped repeatedly. Technology controlled them till they overcame, gaining self-determination and freedom. If you remember Robocop, then you're familiar to a large extent with what's happening. The quasi humanity influencing a robotic view of the world, the struggle for identity free from their past. It's very similar and yet different. I loved Robocop when I saw it over 30 years ago, and I love this modern homage.
This feels like a step backwards in its length, a novella, not a novel.
At the same time, it is a step forwards as Murderbot takes the first step on a new journey in its life.
If you enjoyed Murderbot before, you will still love him now. Worth buying for any existing readers.
I re-read the previous 5 constantly.
And as usual, this book delivers.
The SecUnit that cares, a human face to AI, but better than human untainted by corporate greed..
There is a murder to solve, humans to try not to talk to, fights to win, twists and turns and glimpses of what it is to be not human.
Less time to watch media, more time to process away threats and lies.
Glimpses of corporate greed that removed ethics from human future, and machine intelligence that's re-discovering ethics.
Too short of course.
This series always is.
Left wanting more is the outcome.
And one day into starting and finishing this one, and I crave more.
Murderbot, literary crack cocaine, a word fix.
