Review of All Systems Red (Murderbot #1)

All Systems Red by Martha Wells

My rating: 4.8 of 5 stars

Thanks to Stephen Topp for this nudge/suggestion. It was a good one and appreciated.
I’d definitely read (am reading) another.

These novella-style nuggets from a variety of authors as part of an inspired sci-fi series are a perfect entre to authors who you may not have met in the past. This one definitely appealed to me.

The idea of exploring the self-awareness of cybernetic beings is nothing original, but the trajectory of moving from programmed for evil – to becoming a force for good is definitely far rarer and particularly well-characterised here.

I look forward to seeing where this series goes and indeed where else I may meet this author.
