"Being a sentient spaceship really should be more fun. But after spreading out through space for almost a century, Bob and his clones just can't stay out of trouble. They've created enough colonies so humanity shouldn't go extinct. But political squabbles have a bad habit of dying hard, and the Brazilian probes are still trying to take out the competition. And the Bobs have picked a fight with an older, more powerful species with a large appetite and a short temper. Still stinging from getting their collective butts kicked in their first encounter with the Others, the Bobs now face the prospect of a decisive final battle to defend Earth and its colonies. But the Bobs are less disciplined than a herd of cats, and some of the younger copies are more concerned with their own local problems than defeating the Others. Yet salvation may come from an unlikely source. …

You wouldn't think anything of someone with a prosthetic arm, right? Just think of me as an extreme amputation case.

All These Worlds is a spectacular conclusion to the Bobiverse trilogy. This book continued to explore emotions, responsibility to ephemerals, and what it means to be alive. This story was able to weave guilt and grief in with humour, and dangle a Fermi paradox in for good measure.

I am continually amazed at how simple of a concept this series is and yet how thought provoking it can be. This book flew by because I was eager to read the next sub-plot and see how everything would get concluded...and don't worry, it does!

This has been an excellent series that felt fresh and definitely a page turner (I haven't read a book this fast for a while).

This is supposed to be a fresh start for humanity. We're supposed …

Really loved all 3 books and it kept me away from sleep because I had to read

It's really good. The series is about the sentience "Bob" which is uploaded into a self-replicating spacecraft and then travels the galaxys, helps the humans, ... etc. I won't go into spoilers here. The topic of "artifical" versus "natural" intelligence plays a major role in the books and "Bob" is confronted with many situations in which he feels very human and/or very computer and/or struggles with the line between the two.

The pacing is very well done. The book overall is well-crafted and VERY WELL RESEARCHED. Yes it's still fiction but I'd say 98%+ of the book is based on real & possible physics.

No rating

Maybe it's just me being a bit sick, but I got tired by the end of this book and couldn't quite keep up. I don't know how the situation they got in could be prevented from sounding in part like an accounting problem (how many of this unit vs how many of those; how many people vs how much space; how many minutes vs how fast can we...) and I've always disliked big battles in general.

I guess the book wrapped up as well as it could but now I'm left with the feeling that I was supposed to care most about first Bob for some reason more than others.

The few things I disliked most about the last two books are the lack of other human replicants, and the lack of alien species that are not just humans by another name (except for the one and we don't get …
