I would give this book one star if not beca What a chore. One of his jobs is to replicate himself as he goes so we end up with many versions of Bob, all the same yet also different from each other. Interact with the community in good faith. Überdies rückt die Flotte des Ocisen Empire vor, zum Äußersten entschlossen.

I enjoyed it but I also caught myself fading off at times. I did enjoy this book, but I am more than a little confused by all of the super high reviews? Bob is a newly minted tech millionaire. One of the reasons I love science fiction is that it it allows us to experience different perspectives and to see the world through different eyes. If I ever read book two, I'll try to give more detailed thoughts on the series as a whole. I haven't had so much geeky fun with the book since back in 2015!
