summary â eBook or Kindle ePUB º Dennis E. Taylor

We Are Legion We Are Bob Ñ And they'll try again with someone else If he accepts he becomes a prime target There are at least three other countries trying to get their own probes launched first and they play dirty The safest place for Bob is in space heading away from Earth at top speed Or so he thinks Because the universe is full of nasties and trespassers make them mad very m. If you liked the genius inventive loner engineer of The Martian and you also liked the amazing universe building and rambling episodic nature of The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet then you're probably going to love this bookBob is a newly minted tech millionaire Bob has also just signed up to be cryogenically frozen in the event of his death Which is a really good thing because his death is in 3 2 uh ohBob is an AI replicant based on a brain scan of frozen tech millionaire Bob's brain Bob's also a pop culture junky incredibly brilliant and other than the loss of everything and everyone he knows pretty happy to be an AI and even happy to find out that he's going to be the piloting AI of a self replicating interstellar von Neumann probeBut after his launch the responsibility on his heads is immense He has to find colony worlds for humanity deal with armed crazy rivals deal with potential alien life and maybe save humanity itselfThis was great The situation that the Bobs find themselves in are SF staples and the multitudes of himself allow the book to investigate all of them The Bobiverse is a rich universe filled with danger and wonder and uite a lot of BobThere's no great character development although the plot is fascinating and most of the Bobs are a lot of fun to read about Highly recommended and I'd give it 45 stars and I'm rounding up because of how much I enjoyed it Be warned though if the Martian was not to your taste I doubt that this one will be either summary â eBook or Kindle ePUB º Dennis E.
