About Me

Hello there! I'm someone who has always had a bit of a love-hate relationship with reading. While I struggle with it from time to time, managing to finish even a single book in a year feels like an achievement. Despite the challenges, I'm always on the lookout for books that can teach me something new or whisk me away to fantastical worlds.

My reading tastes are quite eclectic, ranging from science fiction and historical fiction to mystery, crime novels, and even manga. Whenever I find the time, I dive into these genres, always eager to explore new stories and perspectives.

If you have any book recommendations or want to chat about a great read, I'd love to hear from you!

Murderbot's Next Adventure: A Review of 'Artificial Condition

5 stars

"Artificial Condition" by Martha Wells is the second instalment in The Murderbot Diaries series, building on the thrilling foundation laid by "All Systems Red." Having eagerly picked up this sequel, I was curious to see what our beloved SecUnit, known as Murderbot, would do with its newfound freedom. I found "Artificial Condition" to be even more engaging and entertaining than its predecessor, with a compelling mix of mystery, character development, and humour.

In this novella, Murderbot continues to evolve, showing increased depth as a character. Its witty commentary on the absurdities of human behaviour adds a delightful layer of humour to the narrative. The story explores Murderbot’s journey toward self-awareness, especially through its interactions with other AI entities.

One standout interaction is with a ComfortUnit—a euphemism for a sexbot—through which Murderbot gains a deeper appreciation for the freedoms it has and the significance of using that freedom to assist others. …
