We Are Legion (We Are Bob)

We Are Legion (We Are Bob) Review

Alternate Cover Edition can be found here.

Bob Johansson has just sold his software company and is looking forward to a life of leisure. There are places to go, books to read, and movies to watch. So it's a little unfair when he gets himself killed crossing the street.

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.

The safest place for Bob is in space, heading away from Earth at top speed. Or so he thinks. Because the universe is full of nasties, and trespassers make them mad - very mad.

    I'm jumping on the Bobwagon here!I love the light tone throughout and the geek humor mostly relegated to names one AI clone gives to oneself when faced with a profundity of oneself. Riker? Number 2. O...

    This is one of these novels that make people ask themselves why nobody before had this magnificent idea. All fragments and ideas where there, they just had to be put together to such a great story. I ...

    2.5ish stars. A fun and funny but unspectacular space opera elevated by a clever narrating voice(s) and unique set-up.It could just be that I'm burned out on space opera right now but I just didn't en...
