Review of "All Systems Red" (Murderbot Diaries, #1) by Martha Wells

All Systems Red - Martha Wells

I have the worst trouble writing reviews for books I unequivocally ★★★★★.

 

Probably the best review I can give this is that I immediately pre-ordered the next book, Artificial Condition.

 

I just loved being inside Murdebot's head.  Grumpy, introverted, snarky, lazy, fighting any emotions or involvement ... anti-hero, indeed.  

 

The worldbuilding with greedy corporations had a fond déjà vu for me of H. Beam Piper's works—but, original rather than derivative.

 

This had been on my radar since publisher first announced it.  So glad I read it now for booklikes bookclub http://booklikes.com/book-clubs/88/tor-monthly-free-ebook-science-fiction-and-fantasy when publisher TOR offered as this month's free ebook.
