Review: Artificial Condition by Martha Wells | #Robot #Scifi

Artificial Condition (The Murderbot Diaries, #2)Artificial Condition by Martha Wells

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Story of a superhuman security robot/cyborg learning to pretend to be human.

What I liked about it is that they have a sentient spaceship, and there is an additional robot/cyborg that is freed.

While this still has several action sequences it is more based on character development.

I feel somewhat ripped off though, in the sense that Amazon said this book is 160 pages (novel length), but it’s actually only 33 thousand words (novella length). It also cost over $8, so I’m rather hesitant to get the next one.

Though I probably will read the rest of the novella series before the novel comes out in 2020.
There is slim pickings for people like me that like scifi stories about robots. I would have given it a four stars but the lack of DRM boosts it by an extra star so it’s back at 5.
