Rogue Protocol
Rogue Protocol | Martha Wells
55 posts | 64 read | 17 to read
SciFi’s favorite crabby A.I. is again on a mission. The case against the too-big-to-fail GrayCris Corporation is floundering, and more importantly, authorities are beginning to ask more questions about where Dr. Mensah's SecUnit is. And Murderbot would rather those questions went away. For good. ___ Martha Wells' Rogue Protocol is the third in the Murderbot Diaries series, starring a human-like android who keeps getting sucked back into adventure after adventure, though it just wants to be left alone, away from humanity and small talk. Read Rogue Protocol and find out why Hugo Award winner Ann Leckie wrote, "I love Murderbot!" At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Murderbot is comfort reading for me. This one did not disappoint. I will start the next one soon.

Listened to the end of this one while on my bicycle-buying adventure. I‘d researched ahead of time so the whole process took about 15 minutes from start to finish. Took her for a little ride around my neighborhood while it was still sunny and warm out, and looking forward to perhaps going a bit farther afield today 😊

Man. I just love the Murderbot series! This one takes us on another zippy adventure with everyone‘s favorite misanthropic robot. The ending of this one felt sadly abrupt, like there was a bit of unfinished business. At the same time, I couldn‘t have seen it end any other way. How is it possible to get such feels about robots?!??

SW-T Because Murderbot, Art, and Miki are all wonderful in their own way 💕 2mo
Angitron @SW-T They really are, aren‘t they? I love that Wells is able to give them such humanity! 2mo

#BookMail Pt4 I love MurderBot! I‘m a new convert so the thought of just 4 tiny novellas being all there is was devastating😫So it‘s fair to say I was thrilled to learn from @Liberty there will be a full novel soon!!🎉 To The unconverted,MurderBot is a sci-fi revolving around a SecUnit hybrid human/machinery who hacks their governing module after an “incident” of rogue behavior so it can watch tv instead of being bored.Snark ensues. #murderbotarmy

Cathythoughts It sounds great .. not sure I‘m ready for it yet , but def sounds interesting 2mo

I‘ve been absolutely loving this series of novellas, about a rogue “Murderbot” that just wants to be left alone to watch its soap operas and figure itself out. This series has plenty of action and heart and I find myself regularly laughing out loud while reading it. Really excited to read book four.

⌚️Murderbot delves further on his hunt against Bid Bad Corp.
⌚️Narrative went thru fast-paced/slowed-paced waves.
⌚️Overall tone felt monotonous & too similar to previous vols, making it hard for me to stay focused; slightly stale.
⌚️Unique personas of individual AI in each new vol is so creative & my fave parts of series.
⌚️Emotional bittersweet finale I didn‘t see coming that helped round off the enjoyment for me.
⌚️Curious for finale!
⌚️3.75/5

Such a great installment, the more our Murderbot ventures out, investigates their past, the more interactions they have with other humans and bots. Yes the adventures and investigations are good, but I‘m finding myself much more intrigued and touched as she meets humans who are different, regard robots as different than she‘s used to, and discovers more variety of bot life forms and the ways they can express themselves.

Yaasss!!! My Murderbot Diaries book 3 hold came in!! I‘m so excited! Putting everything else on pause so I can read this!!

The Murderbot Diaries is a hard sci-fi series of books following a sentient AI robot named Murderbot, who‘s trying to learn more about its past while navigating being a free-thinker. If you like sci-fi books & haven‘t read this, you really should give it a try. It‘s one of my faves. The first book is All Systems Red.

After finishing my latest audiobook this morning, I thought I start something short, because my library hold list is aligned to all come in at once. I just finished this one, no hold has come available yet. Back to square one! 🤓

I really like this series, a snarky artificial intelligent robot, who watches soap operas to learn human behaviours and is full of sarcasm and short on charm! Although distinct novellas these books are almost 'episodes' in one larger story and we connect back here, in book 3, with themes, players and context introduced in both book 1 and 2. The final 50 pages are a tense high stakes space chase, that is so vivid and thrilling because of it!

This series really nails a sweet spot of high stakes and comfy. I started the final book immediately after finishing this one and am already halfway through. Expect there'll be an omnibus edition before too long, but these standalone volumes are pretty spiffy.

You do pick up on a formula by this point (MB goes somewhere, corporate interests try to kill some folks, MB saves them) but this one's got some good drama keeping things lively.

Okay, so there's lots of SFnal action here--evil corporations and killer robots and whatnot--and I'm sure it's totally exciting, but I don't think it'll stay with me for long. The details of the first two novellas sure didn't.

What HAS stuck around, and what'll keep me eager for the last book, is Murderbot. Murderbot is GREAT. I don't even care what Murderbot DOES, just so long as we can keep on hanging out.

Yay, Murderbot!

I love Murderbot. In this installment Murderbot works to uncover what nefarious business GrayCris has been involved in. And we meet another bot, Micki, who's relationship with her person is very different from what Murderbot has seen so far.

Micki was fun, but I missed ART, from book 2. So far he's my favorite auxiliary character and I hope he comes back in book 4.

This was my least favorite installment of The Murderbot Diaries series. What I liked about the first two novellas in the series was the amount of humor and the fact that Murderbot was a wiseacre and a hoot to spend time with. There was less humor and overall wackiness in this installment. The story was more of a straight-ahead science fiction action adventure. I'm looking forward to the fourth and final book. Hopefully it will end on a high note.

If you want to read a story where misogynistic assholes rule the world, do not read this book. If you want a delightful read on an individual struggling with a newly gained free will and their dealings with annoying humans who require saving (therefore interrupting binge-watching of dramatic entertainment), then I highly recommend reading this novella!!!!

3rd installment of The Murderbot Diaries wherein Murderbot has all the feelings. Murderbot wisely says, “I hate caring about stuff. But apparently once you start, you can‘t just stop.”

I enjoy this novella series because the sentient and self-willed robot chooses to spend its freedom searching for evidence of terrible crimes committed by a “too-big-to-fail” corporation. I can‘t wait to see Murderbot bring this evil Corp to justice.

Book 3 of the MurderBot a diaries is another winner. One of the more intriguing themes of this series is how SecUnit becomes more and more jaded by its interactions with human but his his interactions with artificial beings begin reveal its “human” side. In Rogue Protocol we find hidden depths in what it initially labels a pet robots that plays out well throughout the tale. Kevin R Free continues to shine as the series narrator.

Guildedearlobe @Dogearedcopy All Systems Red is the first. All the books in this series are novella length 9mo
Dogearedcopy @Guildedearlobe Oh yay! That‘s the one I got! The premise was irresistible ( and it was on sale.) I hope to get to it over the Labor Day weekend. 9mo

So I just got back from my road trip. I‘ve been listening to Rogue Protocol, which is awesome. So, interesting point of convergence. Whenever I take a road trip I bring my companion Murder Elf. Along the way we stopped in a Georgia town right by the infamous Murder Creek and I‘m listening to a book about one of my favorite characters, MurderBot.

Murderbot is my new bff. Or would be, if the thought of being so emotionally or physically close to a human wasn't so repulsive to it.

This is the third book and they're so short so I won't bother with potential spoilers, just know this was GREAT and I can't wait for more. 🖤
