Artificial Condition

My second book for April was Artificial Condition by Martha Wells. The book is the second in a series called The Murderbot Diaries. I read the first book--All Systems Red--earlier in April.

Artificial Condition won the Hugo Award for Best Novella in 2019. It was also a finalist for the Nebula Award, the Locus Award, and the Theodore Sturgeon Award.

The science fiction novella follows the story of Murderbot, a SecUnit (security unit) android that has hacked its own governor module. Trying to learn more about its past, Murderbot is recruited by a group of humans to help them recover some of their work.

As I said after reading the first book in the series, artificial intelligence has become a hot topic. I enjoyed the first two books enough that I am going to continue to read the series in the future. I am interested in seeing the author continues to expand world in the future novellas and novels.
