Summary

A May 2020 LibraryReads Pick

Martha Wells’s bestselling Murderbot series exploded onto the scene in 2017, and the world has not been the same, since. Murderbot returns in its highly-anticipated, first, full-length stand-alone novel, Network Effect.

You know that feeling when you’re at work, and you’ve had enough of people, and then the boss walks in with yet another job that needs to be done right this second or the world will end, but all you want to do is go home and binge your favorite shows? And you’re a sentient murder machine programmed for destruction? Congratulations, you’re Murderbot. Come for the pew-pew space battles, stay for the most relatable A.I. you’ll read this century. I’m usually alone in my head, and that’s where 90 plus percent of my problems are. When Murderbot’s human associates (not friends, never friends) are captured and another not-friend from its past requires urgent assistance, Murderbot must choose between inertia and drastic action. Drastic action it is, then.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Anyone who enjoys humor-infused space operas won’t want to miss this.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Wells continues to find sensitive and effective directions for Murderbot’s character growth. This whole series is fantastic, and this novel is no exception. If anyone had any doubts about Murderbot’s ability to carry a full length novel, this should put them to rest.” SFRevu
“This is a perfectly paced space opera adventure novel… I could read about Murderbot all week." Locus
“I might have a little bit of a thing for a robot. Its name is Murderbot… Network Effect [is] great.” Wired
“If the first books were episodes in a four-part TV miniseries, then Network Effect is the feature-length movie with the bigger budget and scope…Network Effect is a wonderful continuation of the series, and I highly recommend it.” NPR
