The ending for this segment was a very good setup for more stories to come. I was a little apprehensive about the length of the story because I have been disappointed by short stories and novellas in the past because they never fully engaged my emotions. I didn't need to worry about that with this story by Martha Wells and I am definitely looking forward to reading the continuing adventures of this Imitative Human Bot Unit.
Our hero is SecUnit, an AI robot that has hacked its own governor module and found this universe's answer to Netflix. Bored with the mind-numbing security detail for a routine geological survey, it just wants to get back to base so it can watch the latest episode of its favorite serial show. And, as Wells would say, that's when everything went to ****.
SecUnit/Murderbot is an intelligent and compassionate being, with a healthy dose of social anxiety. It has reservations about its human companions, but still works tirelessly to ensure their survival. Woven throughout the plotline, though, is the not-so-subtle discussion about whether S.U. is merely a tool, to be utilized and then cast aside, or a being worthy of the same dignity and respect as any other human.
I can't wait to see what the future holds for S.U.! An excellent start to this new series!!
As a security unit, Murderbot generally serves clients who have bid for their services: in this case, a small crew surveying a planet. When things start to go wrong, Murderbot has to decide how much to reveal of their own self-determination. The reactions that Murderbot and the crew have to each other as they get to know each other better under difficult circumstances are so wonderful.
Murderbot's voice is engaging, and the plot zips along. I just meant to start this novella, but I ended up reading the whole thing in one delightful sitting. No spoilers about the end, but I really loved both the choices the crew made, and a particularly startling one that Murderbot made. I will be very eagerly anticipating the second Murderbot Diary.
I'm in the middle of some other books, so I wasnt' ready to start this in earnest.
Thinking I would just read a few pages to get a feel for this new book, I couldn't put it down. I was riveted until I finished it (midnight.)
The main character breaks the stereotype of cyborgs, and the profit-oriented culture created in this book has lots of touchstones with modern life. Enough touchstones to make the story seem to be a commentary on some corporate value systems, but still deftly avoids getting bogged down in the usual dystopian motifs that we have seen so many times before.
It's a good read, I cannot recommend it highly enough.
