It's fun at times, and the author tries to pull emotion out of the readers at times, but I just really didn't find myself caring that much. And again, NEITHER BOOKS HAD AN ENDING. It just drops off. Bravo to Dennis E. Taylor and to Ray Porter for bringing the Bobiverse alive- in all its snarky glory, humor, and love for humanity. Bob wakes up a century later to find that corpsicles have been declared to be without rights, and he is now the property of the state. He has been uploaded into computer hardware and is slated to be the controlling AI in an interstellar probe looking for habitable planets. The stakes are high: no less than the first claim to entire worlds. If he declines the honor, he'll be switched off, and they'll try again with someone else. If he accepts, he becomes a prime target. There are at least three other countries trying to get their own probes launched first, and they play dirty.

Firstly a moment of self congratulation, I was literally the first person aboard the Bobwagon and spread the Gospel of Bob far and wide for its brilliant premise and unique blend of humour and hard SF. I was excited to see the book develop a cult following and eagerly anticipated the sequel.

We also got some huge adversary here. I mean, a Dyson Sphere! So cool! Can't wait to see more of that. In May 2019, Taylor was invited by Google to one of the "Talks at Google" where he gave some insight into what inspired his writings, and what his plans are for the next few years. [18] Personal life [ edit ] The major flaw in We are Legion was the Taylor has no idea how to end a chapter. They largely just cut off in an unsatisfying way that might work in a movie with a good editor but feel extremely awkward in audiobook form. Book 2 has 77 chapters and I would guess 55 of them end in an unnatural way. Porter was fairly incredible with what he was given. The final chapter was so jarring I had to listen to it again and could only conclude it was one of the roughest endings to a book in recent memory. It seems Taylor can only write "scenes" and has no idea how to transition from one to the next or how to get out of the scene he just gave us.

Tropes show how literature is conceptualized and created and which mixture of elements makes works and genres unique:Despite the doom and gloom of many of the story’s threads though, For We Are Many is in fact a light, fun, and profoundly enjoyable read. It’s also full of sci-fi geekery but at the same time accessible enough so that even readers who don’t normally read the genre will be able to appreciate its charms. Any technical explanations are easy to grasp, not to mention many are also presented in a clever and humorous way, pulling in references from pop culture favorites like Star Trek or Star Wars. But let's add onto this the fact that, when you're reading this series, not only do you have to go into the mind of Bob... You go into the mind of literally a dozen Bob clones. And even though they're all actually different from each other with unique personalities (Who knows why this happened?), they are STILL.... not that interesting. Following the adventures of the multiplicity of curious, thoughtful Bobs is a reading experience I encourage you to have. The future of humanity can be threatened, Bobs can be dying in droves at the hands of enemy probes, and there will still be time for a sly joke, an amusing Sci-Fi reference, or a reflection on the nature of human (and post-human) life.
