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.

Snarky robots are like catnip to me. Turns out Martha Wells is pretty funny.

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.

All Systems Red by Martha Wells is A science-fiction novella made for my tastes. The murderbot Diaries is A new series that centers on a robot hacks her own governor thereby making her nearly a person. Murderbot really does not like interacting with people and would rather be on her own. S...

What a fun SF novel. I bought this totally on a whim a few days when it's on sale (and it's still does, for $3.39 only!) since the synopsis and the reviews look promising. Different with other books languishing in my TBR shelf, I decided to read it right away (a record!) since the Kindle sample g...

Kako kažu ne sudi knjigu po koricama ili likove prema izgledu. Uzmimo našeg protagonistu, robot koji je kreiran da ubija (ime koji je sebi dao, Murderbot), ali više voli da gleda serije i filmove, sluša muziku i užasava se kontakta sa judima ako predviđa normalnu komunikaciju a ne masovna ubistva...

A corporate drone introvert who just wants to half-ass their job and watch their favorite television shows rather than work and/or have to communicate with people? Murderbots! They're just like us! Except with you know, gun barrel arms and somewhat homicidal tendencies.
Unfortunately for this par...

I was honestly startled by just HOW MUCH I loved this novella. I was expecting it to be sharp and smart, which it was; I wasn't expecting just how funny it would be, with a dry humor that was often absolutely hilarious, all narrated with an incredibly compelling voice throughout the really suspen...
