All Systems Red by Martha Wells
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was a really fun read. The main character, Murderbot, is a true slacker in all the best ways and I identified with him almost immediately. His character development was brilliant and subtle, the story was fun and sublimely funny. Though I do not like all of her stuff, Martha Wells is a really great writer, with a smooth and almost lyrical writing style, not quite on Ursula Le Guin's level, but close. I recommend this one for anyone who is looking for a fun and intelligent romp. My only complaint with this book was it is WAY too short, I immediately bought and downloaded the sequel.
