Read All Systems Red (The Murderbot Diaries, #1) Online Free - A murderous android discovers itself in All Systems Red, a tense science fiction adventure by Martha Wells that blends HBO's Westworld with Iain M. Banks' Culture books.
In a corporate-dominated spacefaring future, planetary missions must be approved and supplied by the Company. Exploratory teams are accompanied by Company-supplied security androids, for their own safety.
But in a society where contracts are awarded to the lowest bidder, safety isn’t a primary concern.
On a distant planet, a team of scientists are conducting surface tests, shadowed by their Company-supplied ‘droid — a self-aware SecUnit that has hacked its own governor module, and refers to itself (though never out loud) as “Murderbot.” Scornful of humans, all it really wants is to be left alone long enough to figure out who it is.
But when a neighboring mission goes dark, it's up to the scientists and their Murderbot to get to the truth.

"Confession time: I don't actually know where we are.... I hadn't looked at the maps yet and I'd barely looked at the survey package. In my defense, we'd been here twenty-two planetary days and I hadn't had to do anything but stand around watching humans make scans or take samples of dirt, rocks,...

When I heard the premise I expected a light robot killer story from the PoV from the robot. Probably a PI mystery kind of thing because that seems to be pretty hot right now. I can rattle off a handful of titles like this right now.
So. What did I get? A fun and light robot murderer who hacks hers...

Some heavy themes wrapped up in what is otherwise a relatively fluffy novella. The plot's straight-forward, the prose is decent, but it's charming and witty. Murderbot, who repeatedly says that she'd rather be netflixing, is surprisingly relatable. One of my favorite parts is when Mu...

This is at least as good as most of the reviews are saying, and it's an excellent example of what can be done with a simple plot and fantastic characters at the novella length.
The story is told from the point of view of a rogue biomechanical security construct that calls itself murderbot. With i...

... if he was to be a real boy, he must always be a good boy. Gepetto loved him dearly, but Pinocchio was quite naughty and rarely spoke the truth. As soon as he lied... Oh wait, it's a different story. Or is it?.. But of course it is! Or not?... Omg it's so enjoyable to mess with your minds righ...

"I COULD HAVE BECOME a mass murderer after I hacked my governor module, but then I realized I could access the combined feed of entertainment channels carried on the company satellites."
As first sentences go, this is an arresting one that immediately grabs you through its meaning and tone! And th...

Murderbot's priorities are on my level: watching entertainment feeds > killing humans, anxious and awkward as hell and prefers to be left alone and not interact with any humans ever more than anything else. What's more, the plot is very entertaining and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS.
