This book is the fourth installment of the Murderbot-series.
Although going back to this world feels a bit like coming home, the story lacks something. Several things actually.
It lacks the element of surprise of getting to know a new world like in part 1 (All Systems Red).
It lacks the humour of an interesting sidekick like ART as in part 2 (Artificial Condition).
It lacks the amount of action and suspense we could experience in part 3 (Rogue Protocol).

Not that there wasn't any action or suspense at all.
But the first 60% of the book was a rather tame affair to the point that it became quite boring to read.
When the real action finally began, it was over too quickly and above all too easily.

Reacties op: Nice read, but doesn't live up to the expectations
