Network Effect - Martha Wells, Kevin R. Free

I was hungry for something to escape into today, so having my pre-order of 'Network Effect', the first full-length MurderBot novel, drop into my Audible queue this morning was perfect timing. 


I've spent four and a half hours listening to the book today and it's a wonderful ride. MurderBot remains its compelling self but being freed from the novella format means that the plot structure is more complicated and the puzzle that needs to be solved has more twists in it.


Reading 'Network Effect' is like falling through a cascade of action sequences while working on a big picture to make sense of everything. There's never a dull moment and it took some self-control for me to do anything else today.
