The Murderbot Diaries won both Hugo and Nebula, and with good reason.
What to Expect
A novella told from the point of view of an android assigned as a security unit to a team of scientists exploring a new planet. action is packed in this very short novel (or lengthy novella), but more importantly there’s an impressive character arc.
What I liked
Excellent story and world-building in such a short scope, with Wells doing an amazing job of depicting the point-of-view of the robot and humans around it.
What to be aware of
There isn’t a lot that would put SciFi fans off this work. It’s short, but so were a lot of the early masterpieces. This work definitely deserves all the accolades it won.
Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys character-driven science-fiction stories.
