All Systems Red

My book for April was All Systems Red by Martha Wells. The book is the first in a series called The Murderbot Diaries. I picked up the book because the fifth book in series was the winner of 2021 Hugo, Nebula and Locus Awards!

All Systems Red won the 2018 Hugo, Nebula and Locus Awards for the Best Novella. It was also a New York Times and USA Today Bestseller.

The science fiction novella follows the story of Murderbot, a cyborg security unit that has hacked its own governor module and is trying to find its place in the world. The story is set in a future where corporations have colonized the galaxy.

With the emergence of ChatGPT and Bard, artificial intelligence has become a hot topic. This book explores the themes of free will, identity, and belonging for an advanced artificial intelligence. I enjoyed the book enough that I am going to continue to read the series.
