This series is slowly but surely improving. There's a tiny fraction of character development on the human part, but on Murderbot's part as well, which is a pleasant surprise.

It's nice knocking these out when I'm questing in MMOs

Doppoetry I am reading this mostly for my friends who is a big fan of these and has been raving about Murderbot and how much they relate to them not wanting to socialize and just wanting to watch things.

But also the plot is still intriguing enough to keep me engaged. Not to mention that I am on and off behind on my goodreads challenge and these are good fodder.

I was in the mood for this. Dystopian … western … rebel robots in midwestern wasteland after the last human dies. I love when human characteristics pop up. Fun book!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

This continues to have a very interesting plot but still lacks any distinguishable human characters. I am very aware this is deliberately done but it's hard to be interested in the characters when they are cardboard cutouts compared to Murderbot.

At least the author stopped beating us over the head with “Murderbot just wants to watch their soaps and has social anxiety“

The winner for our March selection is The Man Who Fell to Earth by Walter Tevis. I found a copy at my library and it is also available as an ebook. Since my library is small, I am hoping you guys don't have any problem getting your hands on a copy. The page count is only 209 so it should be a quick read. Enjoy!

BookwormAHN Audible has it and I believe it's one of their free titles. 1d
TheSpineView @BookwormAHN Good to know. Thanks for that tidbit! 1d
PageShifter I couldn't find it from the library but I'll check bookstores 1d
Ruthiella My library has it on ebook and audio! Which is in part why it got my vote! 😆 1d
Bookwomble Yay! I'm excited to re-read this one. I have two copies: one I've read that has a fairly boring generic cover, and one I haven't read that has a film tie-in cover, which is the one I'll be using 😊 1d

I am posting one book per day from my extensive, and ever growing, TBR shelves. Some are old and some are new, some were gifts and some I don't remember why I bought them.

Bookwomble @Decalino This was published in the UK as Hothouse, and I loved it too 😊 11h

This one was very compelling! Some really character development here as Murderbot returns to the crew they left behind & takes a less avoidant approach to the conflict

This brings to an end the "The trilogy of five" Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. It recovers some of the freshness that had lost with the last book, really enjoyed it, very good wrap up of the series. I'll definitely revisit it in the years to come, a good way to get some light, fun-chaotic reading. Might look for the BBC audios, if anyone knows where to find them!

Jas16 Great job! 2d
catsuit_mango I know there is a vinyle of thé complete BBC audio, and i found the audio files but i can't remember where. 2d
catsuit_mango You might also like the BBC adaptation from the 80s. The movie is nice but mostly fan service in comparison. 2d

nanuska_153 @catsuit_mango thanks so much for that, I watched the movie but didn't know there was a series. Will see if I find the vinyl it would make a nice addition to my collection ❤️ 12h

The Lathe Of Heaven: A Novel | Ursula K. Le Guin

This classic SF novel involves a man whose dreams cause the world to be altered. The jumps to different realities makes the reading challenging, but LeGuin poses many thought-provoking questions.
