This is the fourth and last book in The Murderbot Diaries miniseries. The story continues but the ending of this is completely satisfying. Dont get me wrong, I am going to continue reading. But I have adored these short novellas and Murderbot feels like a person I know, they feel like they are with me. I struggle so much with communicating and letting people in and social anxiety, and Murderbot has become this very significant character to me that genuinely helps me feel like I can get through things. Best series I have ever read!
Once again, Murderbot hit me straight in the heart. The ending of this book particularly is gut-wrenching. Murderbot may come across as uncaring or unemotional, but that is one of the biggest problems when others judge Bots or humans that are socially awkward. For myself, a lot of my social issues are because I care almost too much. Right now, I want to watch an episode of Rise and Fall of Sanctuary Moon and call it a night.
I dont really like giving away what happens in series, especially series I love and really want everyone to read so… I’m just going to say, again, how much I love this. I have never met a character in a book that I relate to so much as Murderbot. Murderbot is for anyone with insecurities about themselves, not knowing how exactly to fit in, how to act around other people… anyone with problems with socializing… if you feel uncomfortable around the majority of other people. I feel all of this and more, I really struggle with simply “being human” which is brought up in this book. And that is amazing. It is amazing to have this character and have these stories.
Read and enjoy!! Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!!
Okay, I am not sure that what I am about to say is 100% true but I think it is: This is the best book I have read all year. This may even be the beginning of a beautiful (new to me) book series relationship because I believe this is going to have to fit into my most beloved series category. Of all time. I relate to Murderbot so much that I feel like Martha Wells must somehow know me and has been watching me secretly. I, also, like to wear my armour, especially around humans. I wish I had an opaque helmet to hide my facial expressions behind too but for right now the symbolic idea of armour will have to do for me. I love this so much, it made me feel less alone and like someone understands… a priceless and lovely tale! I highly recommend this!
