Fun read. Murderbot's socially awkward personality is a good start for an entertaining narrator, but it still feels kind of one-dimensional, likely because I've only read one novella. There's a lot of material to get into which I'll save for a later android sci-fi fix.

This was interesting! It was easy to fall into though I wish there was more explanation of the world, but being a novella I can understand why we are left in the dark on some things. I am definitely considering reading the rest of the books to see what Murderbot gets into next.

I really like the premise and the main characters' quirks. Interesting world building, believable plot, good supporting characters, and I enjoy the novella length. So on that I give if four stars - however the reader was well, flat and maybe undersold the humor or am I unfair? So I like this book, just not the audio-book reader's performance.
