Title: Exit Strategy
Author: Martha Wells
Series: Murderbot Diaries #4
Murderbot wasn’t programmed to care. So, its decision to help the only human who ever showed it respect must be a system glitch, right?
Having travelled the width of the galaxy to unearth details of its own murderous transgressions, as well as those of the GrayCris Corporation, Murderbot is heading home to help Dr. Mensah—its former owner (protector? friend?)—submit evidence that could prevent GrayCris from destroying more colonists in its never-ending quest for profit.
But who’s going to believe a SecUnit gone rogue?
And what will become of it when it’s caught?
My Reviews for:
I can’t really express how much I love this series. I have tried in all my other reviews to just put across how awesome a character Murderbot is and how much they are just a joy to read about. This is another action packed adventure with all the sass you expect.
Murderbot is one of those characters that I was just instantly drawn to. For an AI they are incredibly relatable, just wanting to be left alone with the entertainment feed to watch its shows in peace. But they also turn out to be a fierce friend. They are learning more and more about who they are outside their programming and this was a really sweet part of there journey to follow. We also reconnect with some familiar characters from All Systems Red and it was great to see their interactions with Murderbot after everything they have been through.
It was also filled with awesome spy craft and fight scenes that keep you on your toes, as well as sweet and funny moments. Another great instalment that left me smiling and itching to pick up book 5! Which is a full novel – very excited.
