All Systems Red (The Murderbot Diaries #1) – Book Review

Published Date: May 2, 2017

Publishing Co.: Tor.com

Pages: 144

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

What if robots designed to be security and kill when commanded, became sentient? Sounds absolutely horrifying, right?

Turns out, they rather just be left alone to watch their programs like an old woman.

However, they must keep up the ruse that they obey human commands, or they will get reprogrammed and go right back to be being just a murderous robot.

Murderbot, as they call themself, actually likes the humans they are currently contracted to protect and they’re going to have to break protocol when the excavation site is under attack if they want to get those kind humans out alive.

There was a lot of hype surrounding this novella when it came out. I’m happy to say that it held up to the recommendations. I downloaded the second book immediately.

  1. I just can’t get past the whole “novella for the full price of a novel” thing. Call me cheap 😉

    Glad you enjoyed it though. Whenever things DO live up to the hype, that is so refreshing 🙂

    1. Thanks. 🙂 If I wait until Ridley is tired, he’s less interested in what I have in my hands lol. Although, he tried to steal the kindle off the couch arm the other day so I still have to be alert. Lol.
