All Systems Red, by Martha Wells

Staff Pick

The Murderbot Diaries read as if Douglas Adams wrote The Hitchhiker’s Guide about Marvin the Paranoid Android instead of Arthur Dent. Wells's protagonist is a bored, disaffected security bot that just wants to get back to watching episode 397 of Sanctuary Moon and certainly doesn’t want to get involved in a conspiracy to sabotage and kill its current clients on an isolated research base. Murderbot (a private nickname it gives itself) may not have been programmed to care, but after hacking its own governor module it finds itself a little too invested in the fate of its humans. A sweet and incredibly humanistic portrayal of a non-human protagonist with a fun supporting cast.
