Bob Johansson didnt believe in an afterlife, so waking up after being killed in a car accident was a shock. To add to the surprise, he is now a sentient computer and the controlling intelligence for a Von Neumann probe.Bob and his copies have been spreading out from Earth for forty years now, looking for habitable planets. But thats the only part of the plan thats still in one piece. A system-wide war has killed off 99.9% of the human race; nuclear winter is slowly making the Earth uninhabitable; a radical group wants to finish the job on the remnants of humanity; the Brazilian space probes are still out there, still trying to blow up the competition; And the Bobs have discovered a spacefaring species that considers all other life as food.Bob left Earth anticipating a life of exploration and blissful solitude. Instead hes a sky god to a primitive native species, the only hope for getting humanity to a new home, and possibly the only thing that can prevent every species in the local sphere ending up as dinner....

For We Are Many (Bobiverse #2) Reviews
I honestly just wish it was longer.
I found no problems with this book and can't dock it a star just because I want more.
I recommend this book to those that love good sci-fi.
Never go on a long business trip to the Southern hemisphere and buy only the first two of the Bobiverse series books. They're not even cliff-hangers; this light space opera flat-out leaves each volume hanging. And I've got another week here…. That's another way of saying: read these books.
This is a great sequel to We Are Legion (We Are Bob) that brought about significant development in both the characters and the plot.
Character development in the Bobs, a Replicant, a computer programme, you say? Yes, completely!! Firstly, each clone is a different variation of the original Bob and they do differ sufficiently to have distinctive personalities. One just does not know how the newly cloned cohorts will turn out to be, i.e. which psyche of original Bob will be most dominant ...more
This is one of those books you read for shits & giggles – is this a universal saying? Its fun escapism that should not be overanalysed.
We Are Legion (We Are Bob) really took me by surprise, it had a unique angle to the space theme and I liked the main protagonist(s). With this second installment you know exactly what you are going to get. Exactly!
There is very little new to be had. There are plenty of Bobs, and I mean plenty. And I think that caused a slight distraction for me – there were j ...more
First, a recap of part one is in my review here.
I enjoyed the first part of this series, but part two was a bit of a letdown. The main character "Bob" and all his AI clones (which are all inexact variations of his core personality) have become a little too annoying for me. I mean, who is this book for? It's not a young adult book. But the man (lol, he's an artificial intelligence based on a human template with emotions) has to deal with apocalyptic destruction, species-wide genocide and personal ...more
I absolutely adored this. I laughed, I cried, it warmed my heart and broke it in places. My only grievance is that it's too damn short for my liking. I could have read twice this and not have gotten bored.
Despite they're being over 40 Bobs by the last page, at no time did I feel lost. There are plenty of POV's intertwined with a half dozen storylines and I liked every one of them. There is just something about this series that speaks to my inner geek (okay, i'll admit, in my case it doesn't have ...more
Dennis, I hate you!
To put my emotional outburst into perspective, please, allow me to tell you a story.
This is a story of a small boy. A very happy, cheerful, boy.
Boy likes ice cream.
Boy likes ice cream so much, when mom told him they're going out to have one later, he couldn't contain his emotions and shrieked out of pure joy.
Ice creams. Bringing out our inner shrieking child since 1660.
Boy is impatient now. Boy cannot wait.
He can barely think straight, waiting for the moment to go out and g ...more
A great sequel to the first book!
