They all stopped talking and stared at me. It made me nervous and I immediately switched my view to the nearest security camera so I could watch us from the side. I had said it with more emphasis than I intended, but it was just the way things were. I wasn't sure why it had such an impact on them. Maybe it sounded like I knew what I was talking about. Maybe it was the two murder
The good news is that I still love Murderbot and that I now also love ART.
The bad news is that I unfortunately didn't like this book as much as the first one. I couldn't get into the story until half way through it.
I still very much look forward to reading the next awkward adventures of Murderbot though!
An excellent installment in the Murderbot Diaries.
Can't wait for Rogue Protocol.
Like many, I absolutely loved the first Murderbot novella and couldn’t wait to see what Wells had in store for us.
The plot is somewhat ‘simpler’ than in the first but this was not a problem for me, especially since the focus was on Murderbot’s sentience, and that of other types of ‘robots/AIs’ populating this universe. The voice is once again perfect, full of feelings, and showcases a complex and fascinating character. The addition of ART was a stroke of genius too.

I received an advanced reading copy from Tor.com in exchange for an honest review.
An awesome sequel to All Systems Red, Artifical Condition pumps up the fun and action.
Before I continue, please note there may be minor spoilers from the first novella in my review below. I also maintain that our main protagonist sounded female in my mind and hence, I will refer to it as she.
With her newfound autonomy, our sardonic SecUnit decided to return to the mining planet where a prior incident had ...more
The appalling lack of carnage continues in Episode II:
Attack of the Cloneswhen everyone’s favorite “Murderbot” goes searching for answers to its hazy past. With no clients to serve, it’s free to do as it pleases, but it’s bored of wasting its lifespan stowing away in cargo transports and consuming media—crazy, right?—so instead, it decides to look into how it came to be a free agent in the first place.
On an old assignment, before it became sentient, it apparently went rogue and massacred ...more
A quick read. Which annoys me even more considering the ridiculously high price of the ebook. I even considered docking a star of the rating for that, but it wouldn‘t be fair to the story.
It was good, but not as good as the first installment. I found it a bit thinner on plot and suspense, although I liked the way our murderbot keeps exploring its non-humanity. The addition of ART was fun. The bad guy was not very bad or scary. Regardless, I read it in two sittings and I am craving more. Good en ...more
Well, I had a blast. Perhaps not as action packed as the first book, but I find main character’s personality and voice simply irresistible. It’s amazing how easy it is to connect with and care for this shy socially awkward robot. Martha’s Wells ironic tone and subtle humour really works for me as well.
After having so much fun with the two of the Murderbot Diaries I’ve decided to check out other writer’s books.
