Martha Wells can certainly write a sarcastic character and make him more interesting in each book. In each book the reader gets a clearer picture of the universe Wells is creating.In this book we get a better look at how the Corporation Rim colonized planets. We gain insight into the Deepening relationship between murder bot and Art. The story overall was at times confusing. There were a lot of moving parts in it. Nonetheless I found the story as a whole compelling. ( )

Exciting! So great to be back in Murderbot's world, and can't wait for the next one. ( )

After stumbling across the MurderBot diaries, I became a fan of both the author’s style and the audiobook reader’s characterization. The novellas were quirky, exhibited a bone-dry humor, and MurderBot’s observations of humans made me laugh to recognize the foibles. I admit having some apprehension about a full-length book. I am happy to report MurderBot’s adventures in space translate quite well in the longer format.

In this story, MurderBot continues its education about humans even as it begins to show and feel something disturbingly close to emotions and attachments. In a reunion with ART, MurderBot helps its not-friend rescue ART’s crew from an alien life form on an abandoned corporate colony.

I look forward to more adventures, revelations, and laughs as MurderBot moves ahead in its new life, exploring and not having relationships — because ... eeeww. ( )

The first full length novel of the series is great and I enjoyed the deeper plotline. If you enjoyed the novellas and wanted more, then this is the book that delivers. ( )

Murderbot is still not sure what life holds for it, so until it understands more about what it really wants, it stays with Mensah and her family providing security. When Amena, Mensah's daughter wants to go out on her first mission, Mensah asks Murderbot to go along and provide security. She and the others on the mission from Preservation find more than they bargained for when they are basically kidnapped by ART because it needs Murderbot's help. ART's crew is missing and is desperate to get them back. Murderbot is its only hope.
Network Effect is the first full-length novel in this series and does not disappoint. Murderbot continues on its journey of self-discovery and in doing so, develops deeper relationships; something that it abhors. Amena is especially enjoyable as the only adolescent that has been part of these stories so far. Of all of the humans other than Mensah, she seems to be able to more fully understand Murderbot's relationships because she is unencumbered with the political correctness of adults. My only minor complaint about this novel is that the amount of technical jargon and the lengthy explanations made it difficult to follow at times. Overall, however, this is another very good entry in this series. ( )

Like the series-to-full-length movie format it follows, everything is a bit wider and a bit heavier, but all the hallmarks of the series are there. We get a return of some beloved characters, more dodgy corporate interlopers, more robots-on A.I.-on-robot (and augmented human) action, and a bigger mystery. But now, with a little more room to breathe, Wells draws out all of those elements in a way that extends the enjoyable experience of the novellas, yet doesn't drag. Network Effect is more than twice the size of All Systems Red, but you'll come to the final pages and hardly notice.
