Exit Strategy


The fourth novella in the Murderbot Diaries was just as good as the last one, Rogue Protocol. It was a little more interesting because it circles back to some of the characters from the first book, All Systems Red, which I read quite a while ago. It was nice to come back to these characters and get some decent characterization even though it's been so long. The prose is still terrific. These books all could have made one really good 700-page novel, but I'm glad they were broken up into novellas. Because the science is relatively hard and the writing filled with technical jargon, I think it would have been an exhausting read. As individual stories, these have been just right.
