Oh, Murderbot. This short book is full of whirlwind experiences from the perspective of a socially awkward robot named Murderbot. Although it was designed to kill, it hacked its own government module and became fully self-aware. While on a mission with a group of eccentric scientists, Murderbot finds itself in 2 situations: 1) it really just wants to be alone and watch its soap operas and 2) they encounter something dark and mysterious, and it is up to them to figure it out. Readers will relate to the socially-awkwardness of Murderbot, but be completely drawn to the mystery surrounding the dark situations encountered. It is so compelling and addicting!
