Jessica’s thoughts: I have put off starting the Murderbot diary’s for so long out of fear they would disappoint…the only disappointment so far is that I waited so long to start them. 

Julie’s thoughts: There are few characters I’ve loved more than Murderbot in my entire reading life. And not to brag (or call out my ancient bones), but that’s saying something. I can’t stop demanding people read this, and I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon. 

In a corporate-dominated space-faring future, planetary missions must be approved and supplied by the Company. For their own safety, exploratory teams are accompanied by Company-supplied security androids. 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 is 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, Murderbot 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 Murderbot to get to the truth.
