Summary: This is another novella in the Murderbot Diaries series that has become so popular (for good reason). If you are unaware of this series, Murderbot is the name that a Sec-Unit has given himself as he has had to kill quite a few humans in his job being a security bot. To sum him up in human qualities, he is an introvert whose favorite activity is to stream media feed and binge watch a soap opera called Sanctuary Moon. He hates having to talk to humans, finds humans’ emotions to be “squishy” and just would rather not interact with humans.
In this newest novella, a murder victim is found on Preservation Station and Murderbot assists station security to find the murderer and determine whether his client is in any danger.
My thoughts: I loved it! Having said that, let me just say that I am not a big science fiction reader and and I find that I have to read sci-fi books slower and re-read certain sections in order to be able to visualize a spaceship scene and comprehend what is happening (no, I have never watched Star Trek or Star Wars). I do love this series and get such a kick out of the Murderbot character. Highly recommend this series.
