Bob Johansson has just sold his software company and is looking forward to a life of leisure. There are places to go, books to read, and movies to watch. So it's a little unfair when he gets himself killed crossing the street. Bob wakes up a century later to find that corpsicles have been declared to be without rights, and he is now the property of the state. He has been uploaded into computer hardware and is slated to be the controlling AI in an interstellar probe looking for habitable planets. The stakes are high: no less than the first claim to entire worlds. If he declines the honor, he'll be switched off, and they'll try again with someone else. If he accepts, he becomes a prime target. There are at least three other countries trying to get their own probes launched first, and they play dirty. The safest place for Bob is in space, heading away from Earth at top speed. Or so he thinks. Because the universe is full of nasties, and trespassers make them mad - very mad.… (mer)

Reads like golden-age hard sci-fi (maybe subtracting rampant "ism"s). Problem-solving through innovation and clever use of technology. Author cleverly puts us in Bob's head from the first moment. ( )

This book is funny and witty. It starts with a captivating thought experiment that will likely find its way in identity philosophy. I really enjoyed that part.

Once you are past the mind blowing background and the adventure begins, the book gave me the same feeling as a video game that is open ended, after you beat the last boss. A lot of fun things to explore and do, but no real tension.

So, besides the fun thought experiment, the book felt flat. I am not easily convinced by pop and sci-fi culture and references, the abuse of which I am sure explain the popular success of the book. The world building around the geopolitics is quite immature and would work for a joke, but it turns out the book relies on it for its main plot and it just gets annoying. ( )

Funny. It started out great, some real nice nerd humor, and interesting story line. At some point the number of Bobs start to multiply and the story gets a little disjointed. Fortunately most story lines are engaging though, so I enjoyed it, and intend to find book nr. 2. ( )

I don't know how to feel about this one. The humor stopped helping somewhere around the half-way point, but there were some fun moments.

The biggest issue was that much of it felt like I was listening to a first-person narration of the early Warcraft games. ( )

I never thought that a book about micromanagement could ever be interesting, but it actually is!
I guess, sci-fi-wise, there is little truly original about this book except for the way it is told. Taylor decides to not skip a lot of detail that other sci-fi does and then proceeds to skip parts that other sci-fi would consider main things of interest. This results in a lot of pretty dry describing of someone working on their todo-list, which I can understand is not for everyone, but appareantly it is for me?
I read this as an audiobook, which I can heartily recommend! ( )

Yeah, they still make duct tape. And it still holds the universe together.
The ship would have to rotate on its center of mass to aim, and I'd have to cut off the drive momentarily when firing, but it was considerably better than my current defensive armament,which consisted of harsh words and heavy disapproval. Probably not effective against Klingons.
