Exit Strategy
Exit Strategy: The Murderbot Diaries | Martha Wells
"I love Murderbot!" Ann Leckie The fourth and final part of the Murderbot Diaries series that began with All Systems Red. Murderbot wasnt programmed to care. So, its decision to help the only human who ever showed it respect must be a system glitch, right? Having traveled 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. Mensahits former owner (protector? friend?)submit evidence that could prevent GrayCris from destroying more colonists in its never-ending quest for profit. But whos going to believe a SecUnit gone rogue? And what will become of it when its caught? At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Ahhh....that was incredibly satisfying! I read the third and fourth ones in two days. Fantastic action, and a (happy?) reunion at the end. I‘m sad it is over - I really hope Wells writes more stories set in this universe.

AutumnRLS There's a full length novel coming out next year! I'm so excited. 5h

Finished my twelfth hour of #24b4monday with Murderbot.
As always, spending time with Our favorite SecUnit is fun. I‘m so glad there is a novel coming up.

In this final title in the Murderbot Diaries tetralogy, Murderbot evolves, if not into something more human, definitely more relatable as they deal with social interactions and feelings.

The action line/choreography was difficult to follow at times. Illustrations of the transportation center/dock and the business/hotel complex would have been helpful. Wouldn‘t a GN be great?

Looking forward to the full-length novel in 2020 🙂

TheSpineView I am excited too about the upcoming novel! 4w

@Megabooks Congrats!! 🎉🎉

My favorite summer read... Murderbot! I've only just recently gotten into scifi and this series of 4 novellas by a Martha Wells is seriously so great! I read the 1st one earlier this year, but the next 3 over the course of the summer. They're funny & deeply relatable as an introvert myself and while Murderbot does a lot of murdering, it still feels so very humane.

Megabooks Interesting! I think you‘ve convinced me to give it a go. Thanks for entering! 2mo

This was so good. I'm really stoked that the next one is going to be a full length novel, but also scared that a longer burst of Murderbot won't be as good. We'll see, I guess.

Almost 7hrs in and #Bk3 is finished for the #24in48 #readathon I‘m very sad to see the last of MurderBot, I hope the new full length novel comes out soon. This is one of the best Space SciFi series I‘ve read, right up there with Ann Leckie‘s “Ancillary” trilogy. It‘s dead on midnight here in Sydney but after a short snack break I‘ll be diving right into Bk4. When I can decide which of my huge #TBR pile is next!

Bk4 and supposedly the final book (but goodreads says there is a 5thcoming so who knows)
Bk4 gives us closure on the events in BK1 that have been in a round about way following Murderbot ever since it left its original contract team. For me this one didn‘t really snag me until the end but coming to the closure and being left with that end I am more then okay with it!
The Murderbot Diaries are amazing and I will be owning them soon!

These novellas are frantically paced, which is not necessarily a good thing to me. I'm looking forward to seeing what Wells will do with the more leisurely pagecount of the forthcoming Murderbot novel.

All Systems Red remains my favorite of this set. (I am SO GLAD that one won a Hugo.)

#Day4

I was busy with family stuff Sunday and didn't get a walk in so I did a little extra today. This is a combination of walking on my morning and afternoon breaks at work. Then a brisk walk with my dogs after work. I think I am going to break down and get a fitness tracker to record steps and distance. I completed A Conjuring of Light and started on Exit Strategy

wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 5mo
BarbaraJean I‘ve been using my phone to track steps & distance because I‘m too cheap to buy a tracker! 😆 (edited) 5mo

Book 4. I love these novellas more and more as the Murderbot Diaries series goes on, perhaps because they form a larger narrative arc. And Murderbot is such a great character: a genderless AI security unit gone rogue, who prefers to be left alone to watch tv dramas, but can‘t help being drawn into situations where humans require help. Kevin R Free narrates the addictive first-person-voice #audiobooks.

Lindy @julesG I found the pattern online when I was searching for a lace design easy enough to do without too much concentration while travelling. https://www.allfreeknitting.com/Knit-Shawls/Ocean-Waves-Shawl-Red-Heart 6mo
Lindy @Annl I don‘t have a Ravelry account, but I have browsed for patterns there. 6mo
Lindy @julesG Also, I wanted a pattern that would show off the yarn, which had been a gift to me. 6mo
julesG Thank you! BTW, I like Melanie Berg's/Mairlynd's designs. They are easy to follow, have a short pattern repeat and look gorgeous. (Just in case you need another project soon.) 6mo
julesG It's sometimes hard to find a pattern that lets the yarn do the talking/be in the spotlight. (see Mairlynd's patterns, they often are about showing off the yarn rather than complicated lace.) 6mo
Lindy @julesG Thanks for the tip. I had a look at her shawls online and I see what you mean. I picked up a cone of lace weight alpaca/linen blend when I was in Tokyo and now am looking for a shawl pattern. But first I need to get back to the qiviuk/cashmere undervest that‘s in progress. 6mo
julesG Very organised! Knitting projects, to me, are like books, the more I start the merrier. 😵😵😵 6mo
Lindy @julesG I‘m doing my very best now to be disciplined about projects… which is not how I was in the past. I enjoy starting projects so much more than finishing them. 6mo

I feel a little better finishing this book knowing Wells is working on a full novel. Murderbot is such a great character. This final novella brings his story full circle. Even as he is becoming somewhat comfortable existing along humans, he never loses that special, antisocial anxious something that makes him unique.

BookishMeanderings I've heard great things about these books. Really want to read them 7mo
TieDyeDude @BookishMeanderings I can't recommend them enough! Murderbot is destined to become a classic sci-fi character. Such a well developed personality and Wells demonstrates great consistency through the four novellas. 7mo

What can I say? It was an excellent wrap-up to an excellent series. I‘m seriously going to miss Murderbot and how fricking alike we are. They are truly amazing.

If you haven‘t read the series and you enjoy AI narratives, especially when the AI is a severely socially awkward and sarcastic badass, then give this series a go. The first book is All Systems Red.

The conclusion to the Murderbot diaries, sees everything wrapped up neatly and concluded very satisfactorily. It was fast, action filled as usual and full of the emotional wit and awkwardness that marks these books as really unique and refreshing.

I used to love Murderbot. Exit Strategy just didn't work for me. The plot seemed simpler and more thin than those in the prior three installments and it didn't hold my interest until the last quarter or so when the Murderbot reunites with friends from a past mission. Frankly, I was bored during a large part of this book and was close to checking out all together. But I'm a completist and I trudged on as is my nature. The ending was satisfying.

More than any of the previous books, this functions less as a stand-alone story and more as a part of the overarching narrative. Still it's a thrilling and satisfying conclusion, and you'll likely breeze through the rest of the series fast enough that the pacing will work for you. Sure hope this isn't the last we've seen of these characters.

Great finish (kind of) to the series. It finishes the story line but it leaves open possible new adventures. I am not sure how I feel about that 🤔. The story sagged a bit for me in the third book, but the fourth book really brought it home

I absolutely loved this quartet of novellas. Murderbot is definitely someone I'd spend time with even if it didn't really want to!

The story makes you think about the definition of intelligence. It's a fun read with interesting social commentary.

My only complaint is that this could have been a book rather than 4 quick installments. At $10 a pop that makes for a $40 novel... I library-ed these.
