Oh, Murderbot -- everyone’s favourite anti-social, anxiety-riddled killing machine. I recently completed the entire Murderbot Diaries novellas in anticipation of the release of the first full-length novel, Network Effect, in June. Today I’m offering you mini reviews of each novella, as well as some thoughts on the series overall.
Apparently this has been the Summer of the Novella for me -- I recently read the three books in the Wayward Children series by Seanan McGuire and The Blue Salt Road by Joanne M. Harris. While novellas aren’t something I often read, I really feel like I’ve been missing out on great stories lately. All Systems Red is a book I’ve been hearing amazing things about, so I decided to take a chance.
