CAWPILECharactersMurderbot feels surprisingly more human in this installment of the Murderbot diaries. The other characters don't feel stagnant, but not a lot of growth from them. I like that everybody is covering for Murderbot all the time. Murderbot deciding to go into therapy at the end. Foreshadowing Murderbot helping other secunits in the future.AtmosphereThe atmosphere was a little unique in that we were dealing with a Pre CR installation but I didn't feel enough was given in the writing to make it stand out more to me. WritingThis book felt like I was reading murderbot's actual diaries vs just a story like the previous ones. Small personal issue with “scene transitions” between past and present. Maybe it needed another linebreak, maybe something else. Maybe I'm bad at reading. It made it feel more real where sometimes things feel like that but just didn't 100% click in the reading for me.PlotGood plot, mostly dealing with the fallout of the last book while delving into a little bit of secret pre CR stuff.InvestmentIts Murderbot so of course I was invested in reading it. Couldn't put it down.LogicGood logic.EnjoymentI so enjoyed this book. ART: I don't hate anything. I'm discerning in my company. Passive-aggressive competition to see who could use the most annoyingly correct comm protocol. 4.7 seconds vs 4.732 secondsAdaCol2 : clock set MarkMurderbot giving the Sec-Units the ability to hack their own governing modulesArgucusssionsART doesn't enjoy threatening people, it enjoys getting its own way and threatening people is just one of them.MiscART is capable of doing its finances, but it ends up with numbers no one can trace. So they have to keep a hardcopy off network.
