A review by thisistaylort
System Collapse by Martha Wells


I should have reread the whole series first, but I needed a palette cleanser after DNFing my last two books and I knew Murderbot would not let me down. 
I had forgotten just how good this series is. The creativity is just mind blowing. Murderbot has such voice. Wells perfectly nails both corporate greed and human interactions. 

System Collapse is a story about aftermath, about a hero (though Murderbot would never think of itself that way) processing trauma. It's a story about coming through on the other side, but being changed by the experience and learning to accept the altered version of yourself. About the friends/found family who support you along the way. 

I’m really excited to see what Murderbot and ART get up to next, and I will definitely reread the series beforehand.
