All These Worlds (Bobiverse, #3) by Dennis E. Taylor

All These Worlds (Bobiverse, #3)

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 ...

Reviews All These Worlds (Bobiverse, #3)

  • Bradley
    Homo SideriaI love it. Actually, I love this entire series.So much happens, but it's mostly snippets and sub-plots for multiple personalities spread across vast distances across space. Of course, that's kinda necessary since it's one man in an AI matrix duplicating himself massively and communicating real-time over fantastic spaces, doing good as he mines and fabricates and fights battles with aliens, insane AIs from old Earth, talks with friends...

    Can the unabashed geekiness of the first two Bobiverse books continue and deliver on their protagonists' mission to find new habitable worlds for humanity in the final book of the trilogy? Yes! I enjoyed Dennis Taylor's All These Worlds and felt it reached a satisfying conclusion (although if there was a Bobiverse #4, I wouldn't complain). For me, it took a little while to get going, but it hit its stride when it returned to issues of what it mea...

    4.5 stars.All These Worlds was a great and satisfying conclusion to the Bobiverse trilogy, one which I will deem as pretty darn original. It's really not your typical space opera nor near-future cyberpunk science fiction story. Well-written and combining various elements of science, space exploration and humanity, it was a compelling and oft-times humourous package. Given that this is the final chapter in the many adventures of Bob, I will refrai...

    So ... I guess this is it. Time to say goodbye. *sniffles* Though the author has promised he isn't done with the Bobiverse, the We-Are-Bob-cycle has come to an end with this third volume.Again, we have different replicants of the original Bob in different corners of the universe (but by now, they all have or can have bodies thanks to ever improving designs for android bodies). Again, they are either on a discovery trip, trying to save what's left...

    In All These Worlds, Dennis E. Taylor abruptly tied up all the many enticing loose strings from the series so far, and it felt rushed, almost as though he had skipped to the last chapter and just written that instead of giving his readers all of the intervening content that they expected. Or, at any rate, that I expected.The thing is, he had a lot going on based on the first two books. Major sci-fi themes that are usually centerpieces for entire ...

    I love the Bobiverse. Dennis Taylor has created a fun, entertaining and sometimes thoughtful series, and I’m genuinely sad to see it end.In saying that, I don’t feel that All These Worlds is a worthy finale for the Bobiverse trilogy. While this is still an enjoyable book it just isn’t the big finisher that the Bobiverse needs or deserves.The format of the two previous books continues here- a series of first person almost diary-like vignette...

    The best book I haven't read this year!
  • Book Roast
    Thoroughly enjoyed this trilogy. I loved the first book the most, it was intriguing as heck! I love this author's writing style so much. I do think I have dozed off and missed some bits in my audiobook of the 2nd one so I was a bit lost in this one, but that's entirely my fault, and yet somehow I still enjoyed it. Definitely something I might re-read in a physical format to make sure I follow everything, I don't mind going through it again. But t...

    4.5 (review edited)To say that I am a fan of this series is no secret. Therefore, the fact that I downloaded the audiobook as soon as it was available (yesterday) and consumed it as fast as I could, around real life that is, will shock no one :O)Taylor offers us the continuing adventures of the Bobs. If you loved the second book, you'll be very happy with this one too, especially since we get some resolutions. Once more, the narration is shared b...

    I don't even know what to say about this, the final entry in the Bobiverse series.I guess I'll say it's funny, suspenseful, interesting and sad all at once. Some of the Bobs, (the original and all of the clones in their various incarnations), are getting tired, (I know, clones? Tired? But it's true), and who could blame them? Their entire reason for existing is saving and protecting humanity, even those that don't think they need protection or sa...

    When the limitations of a single human lifespan are removed from a sentient being's development, what will happen? Will the being go mad, become frozen emotionally, decide to destroy the Universe and see what happens next?Bob Johansson finds out.I am jealous of Bob, I am happy Author Taylor decided to write Bob down, and I am all done with the series of novels explaining the Bobiverse. Kinda sorta wish I wasn't but I am, and I think a lot of y'al...
  • Brent
    Excitement, closure, new adventures. A great ending to a great series.
  • Bram
    I can really appreciate the fact that the parts of this trilogy are being released so close to each other. Not even a year went by between the release of We Are Legion (We Are Bob) and All these Worlds. As a reader, I applaud this. I know it's not something every author can pull of, but respect to Dennis Taylor for this.Also, the audiobook rendition is truly worth its money. Ray Porter really gives each Bob their own character and eventually I wa...

    The Bobs are in trouble. Humanity is in trouble. Even the Pav and the Deltans are in the firing line.The Others are coming.“Is there no way we can co-exist? The universe is a large place.”That also makes no sense. You are food. It is not the purpose of food to co-exist. We will, in time, make our way to your Sol and your Epsilon Eridani. We have seen your radio beacons. Food always thus announces itself.The Bobs fought a battle at Delta Pavon...
  • Rob
    Executive Summary:A satisfying conclusion to the series, albeit with a somewhat rushed ending.Audiobook: Another good job by Ray Porter. He has good inflection and volume. He speaks clearly and does a few voices. He's definitely made this an enjoyable listen. Full Review I only discovered this series earlier this year thanks to a lot of buzz here on goodreads. It's just the most recent reason that makes me glad this site exists and I finally foun...
  • Peter
    When it comes to final books in a trilogy, I need more than just more continuations from the previous books. The last book should give some closure and bring some conclusions to the various themes it brought up. This didn't do those things. While I could forgive the run-of-the-mill nature of the second book, having the final book be more of the same was disappointing. Yes, there are conclusions to a handful of the side-plots, but nothing satisfyi...

    All These Worlds: The action-packed Bobiverse finaleOriginally posted at Fantasy LiteratureDennis E. Taylor’s BOBIVERSE series has turned out to be a real winner, starting with We Are Legion (We Are Bob) in September 2016 and continuing with For We Are Many in May 2017. Usually I tend to read fairly serious, literary, and ambitious SFF books, but after going through not one, but two long episodes dealing with a debilitating herniated disc this ...
  • Charles
    I started reading this series and first found it entertaining: We Are Legion We Are Bob (Bobiverse, #1) (my review). I read the second book and then put the series aside. I finally found some beach time to pick-up this final book to finish-off the series. This book is readable, YA, has some good ideas and tech. In places it’s amusing. However, it's part of a series that is too derivative to be interesting to a serious reader of science ficti...
  • Suzanne
    I loved this trilogy and highly recommend it in audio - Ray Porter does a great job with the many Bobs.
  • Sinisa Mikasinovic
    I still can't believe I listened to this book 3 months ago, and haven't rated nor reviewed it. And I preordered it!How does that even happen!? I have simply forgotten about it! :OI'll just put this out there - This has been one of the best Sci-Fi series I've read in my life. Very difficult to explain to anyone who hasn't listened or read the first two parts.And you shouldn't really even try to do so in the first place, simply point those lucky so...
  • Thomas
    From the first book in the Bobiverse, I had some qualms about the whole premise. I hadn't planned on reading anything past that book, but the ending had enough questions left unanswered that I persevered. I didn't find much more to like in the second book, but having come that far, I figured I should finish it out and read the third book. This is a long way of saying I wasn't expecting much out of All These Worlds.The books have been easy to re...
  • Becky
    Yeah, I'm kind of unabashedly fangirling over this trilogy. I love the IDEAS behind this work. I love that it manages to be tech-positive without betraying intrinsic humaness. I like the questions it asks and I would encourage you to ask yourself all the questions the Bobs ask about what makes or doesnt make them human.I got so attached to the different Bobs that I'm pretty sad to see the end of the trilogy, but I think it ended where it needed t...

    This is the third book and I guess the last book of the series. The people of Earth are scattered over a number of planets and it looks as if humanity is safe for a while. But the old political battles continue and now they are starting to continue the battles that destroyed Earth. The Bobs are faced with stopping an alien they call “Other” who is destroying everything in its path. The Bobs are having a problem working together to face this n...

    This is the third (and presumably, last) book in the "Bobiverse" series, All These Worlds. The action follows seamlessly from the end of the second book For We Are Many. The premise of the Bobiverse is that an electronically replicated version of a human brain (which happened to have originally been in some engineering dude named "Bob") is able to exist in perpetuity in computers. Bob has made multiple copies of itself and solved numerous technol...

    Trīs aizraujoši vakari ar trešo triloģijas grāmatu. Nodaļas kā šaha simultānspēle - katra savā visuma nostūrī, tāpat kā pirmajās divās grāmatās. Es patiešām nejutos vīlies ne vienā mirklī. Salīdzinājumā ar Marsieti, kur bija nu tik pārspīlēti daudz laimīgu sagadīšanos, šī likās kā reāla dokumentāls stāsts :)
  • Karen’s Library
    All These Worlds was a very satisfying ending to the Bobiverse trilogy. It's going to be lonely without all the Bobs. I'll miss them!I listened to this on audible and once again, Ray Porter was brilliant as he performed the many incarnations of "Bob". He managed to make them all unique. This series of the Bobiverse was truly an original and very unique premise. I didn't think there could be any more surprises, but there were a couple more that ha...

    What a great conclusion to the Bobiverse. I loved the little bits of humor, the nerdiness, and the Bobbbbb's small weakness of wanting to help humanity (over and over again).For some reason Howard and Guppie were my 2 favorites throughout this whole series.Ray Porter does a phenomenal job of narrating this. I honestly think the audio version of this story makes it.
  • Becky
    What a great ending to the series. As much as I want more Bobiverse, I'm glad this one wraps things up and the only questions we have are the fun kind. I keep trying to get my family and friends to read this series; they don't know what they're missing.

    4.5 starsWell, I could never, ever hate Bob (or any of the other Bobs), but this installment in the Bobiverse didn't grab me quite as strongly as the first two. I found myself tripped up by the narrator a few times with changes made to the way the terminology was pronounced in this last book of the trilogy. There were also a couple of jokes that just didn't quite hit home for me, I think partly because you need to see the words written for the ga...
