All Systems Red is the first novella in the Murderbot Diaries, the journal of a part-organic, part-robot SecUnit charged with protecting a team of researchers surveying an unknown planet even though it would much rather be watching soap operas. This was really entertaining and mixed some funny story with real questions of the personhood of this construct. I think the audio format was great for this and the narrator, Kevin R. Free, gave an excellent performance. I’ll probably aim for the audio versions of the rest of the series depending on what I can get from the library.
