"I caught myself rereading my favorite parts... and I can't recommend it enough." -- New York Times You know that feeling when you're at work, and you've had enough of people, and then the boss walks in with yet another job that needs to be done right this second or the world will end, but all you want to do is go home and binge your favorite shows? And you're a sentient murder machine programmed for destruction? Congratulations, you're Murderbot. Come for the pew-pew space battles, stay for the most relatable A.I. you'll read this century.
-- I'm usually alone in my head, and that's where 90 plus percent of my problems are. When Murderbot's human associates (not friends, never friends) are captured and another not-friend from its past requires urgent assistance, Murderbot must choose between inertia and drastic action. Drastic action it is, then.

Anyone who enjoys humor-infused space operas won't want to miss this.--Publishers Weekly Starred ReviewEveryone's favorite Murderbot is now working as a security consultant for Preservation Station... [Network Effect] is a welcome expansion of this universe and lays the groundwork for more stories to come in a series
that continues to grow and impress. --Booklist starred review Praise for The Murderbot Diaries
The Murderbot series is a heart-pounding thriller that never lets up, but it's also one of the most humane portraits of a nonhuman I've ever read. Come for the gunfights on other planets, but stay for the finely drawn portrait of a deadly robot whose smartass goodness will give you hope for the future of humanity. --Annalee Newitz I love Murderbot!--Ann Leckie We are all a little bit Murderbot.--NPR "Wells gives depth to a rousing but basically familiar action plot by turning it into the vehicle by which SecUnit engages with its own rigorously denied humanity." --Publishers Weekly starred review "I already can't wait for the next one." --The Verge "A great kick-off for a continuing series." --Locus
