Mais mon ressenti général est quand même très largement positif. Murderbot est un superbe personnage.
Ça reste un roman très agréable à lire, peut être un peu moins passionnant que les précédents.

At novel length, however, Wells' limitations show clearly: there is very little character development, the plot is nothing we've not read before in this series and - as is inevitable with most series - sopshisticated readers will begin to feel that they're being spoon-fed more of the same, which is far from satisfying. I have no problem with genre writers who have a formula, as long as the formula is original and cannot be replicated by others. Also, as a novel, 'Network Effect' is too long by a good 100 pages - a common problem with most novels these days is excessive length demanded by publishers so that the books feel like 'value for money' for buyers, as if 'never find the quality feel the width' as an approach is a guarantee of good storytelling. It's not. 'Network Effect' felt flabby, slow and tedious compared to 'All Systems Red' for example.
Wells really should leave Murderbot be now, as the returns are diminishing. Trouble is, many readers can't see when they're being spoonfed by having their expectations fulfilled, when truly great SF goes for a fresh novum each time, turns the world on its head via paradigm shift and finishes with a bang of conceptual breakthrough. or at least it used to. Now, series books which are written almost entirely for commercial reasons for the many readers who want repetition and familiarity (concepts which are the opposite of the cognitive dissonance sophisticated SF readers require) are one reason why written SF has been in decline for several decades as an art form.
If you want more of the same, this will make you happy, but if you want new ground broken, don't buy 'Network Effect'. I'm done with Murderbot personally, as this novel didn't leap off the page and light me up like the early novellas did.
Wells, if you're that good an SF writer, turn out some singletons in the the way Philip K Dick, Robert Silverberg, J G Ballard, K W Jeter and Ursula Le Guin did.
I absolutely loved all four Murderbot novellas, and desperately wanted this full-length novel to be as good, or even better. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case.
I have to say I was pretty disappointed with this book, actually, to be honest, I found it frustrating and irritating. The thing is chock full of bracketed sections, especially in the early pages, which just irritated the hell out of me. There are so many references to the previous four books, and not really necessary for the story, that they started to feel like those annoying Youtube adverts that pop up mid-video.
And maybe it's just me, maybe I'm being a little over-analytical, but Murderbot wasn't the Murderbot I remember. Its usual irritation with humans, dislike of too much conversation and general self-conscious embarrassment were almost non-existent, and for me that was what made Murderbot the lovable character it is/was. And no, I'm not buying "It's character development."
It's taken me three weeks to force my way through this book. I simply found myself unmotivated to pick it up day after day. The word I keep coming back to in order to describe the writing in Network Effect is 'cluttered.'
Sorry Martha, I love Murderbot, but this was a big miss for me.
I feel like hopping up and down like a fan girl blurting out all my favourite things but I don't want to spoil it for anyone. It was just as exciting, action-packed, emotion stirring and funny as usual. Some old favourites, some new friends, I just love this world. In fact the only bad thing is having to return to Corona World afterwards. What do I have to look forward to now except re-reading them all again.
I got humour: how murderbot sees humans is hilarious as it seems true: we do just talk a lot and wave our arms about.
It has action: cool spaceships, aliens, robots, fighting, explosions!
It has depth: humans are, well, instinctively humane. Corporate contracts and greed are what puts out that bright flame.
It has humanity: relationships are key and it is touching to see Murderbot grow more human.
OK, only little nitpick. I honestly found a lot of the extra characters completely 1 dimensional. Maybe because it is all from Murderbot’s POV?
