Artificial Condition by Martha Wells

Artificial Condition - Martha Wells

Series: Murderbot #2


This was an okay installment in the Murderbot series. It would have worked much better as part of a longer novel, but as a novella it can't really stand on its own. Don't get me wrong; I like Murderbot when they're doing Murderbotty things and running commentary on the stupidity of their humans, but there was just too little happening to build any suspense. The revelation such as it was was predictable and it took half the novella for anything to actually happen. The first book was good, this was meh, so I'm not sure whether I'll bother with the rest.
