Reviews Exit Strategy (The Murderbot Diaries, #4)

  • Elise (TheBookishActress)
    It was very dramatic, like something out of a historical adventure serial. Also correct in every aspect except for all the facts, like something out of a historical adventure serial. Amazing. As always.I’ve written a full review for the Murderbot series before, so I guess the biggest thing I have to say about this conclusion novella is that it sticks to everything it has already succeeded at. This series is… so much fun, and also one of my f...
  • Tadiana ✩Night Owl☽
    4.5 stars. Awesome wrap-up to the Murderbot series. Old friends and old enemies both make an appearance.Because of key facts and evidence Murderbot found in the third book, Rogue Protocol, against the evil-ridden company GrayCris, Murderbot decides it needs to meet face-to-face with Dr. Mensah, its technical owner and possible friend (though Murderbot would say it doesn't "do" friendship). But when Murderbot gets back to its original grounds, it ...
  • Niki Hawkes - The Obsessive Bookseller
    Niki's Narrative Novella Review [Part 4/4]: I entered into this final installment a little worried. For the character, for my emotions, for that heightened expectations that comes from reaching the end of something truly fantastic and hoping the quality holds up. I was not disappointed. Exit Strategy had the perfect balance of all the amazing elements that make this series so special. Did I shed a tear at some point during this book? I can’t re...

    this is like, my favourite novella series in the history of the universe? I was really afraid that I wouldn't like the ending, but I ended up being very satisfied by it. it's pretty open, but not open enough to feel like you have no conclusion.review to come sometime in September
  • Matthew Galloway
    Is this the end? I don’t want it to be, but it sure feels like it and definitely is a good spot to exit (haha) the story. I just love Murderbot so much. Once again we get its amazing point of view, its snark and frustration about humans, but the love of them that leaks through. We could all be so lucky to have a Murderbot there for us. Plus, you know, I can identify with not wanting people looking at me all the time and not necessarily wanting ...

    I really love Murderbot. More, please!Edit: Murderbot novel on the way? Woohoo!
  • Billie
    I would have probably enjoyed this more if I had read the first three in the series, but even without that, this was a great action-packed story and I never felt lost or like I had been dropped into the middle of something. I definitely have three more books to add to my TBR now, though.
  • Elena
    Wells' phenomenal Murderbot Diaries novella series ends with a bang in this thrilling fourth sci-fi adventure featuring the marvelously cynical, sarcastic, and socially anxious cyborg. When Murderbot discovers that its former employer (and possible friend?), Dr. Mensah, is being held by a corporation bent on covering up its past and future misdeeds, it must team up with members of its old crew to rescue her and stop the corporation once and for a...
  • Katharine (Ventureadlaxre)
    Spoilers will appear beyond this point - novellas don't really leave room for much to review other than fangirl gushing which I totally have in gusto for this series, however, is probably better for twitter and reaction updates rather than a posted review.We pick up quite close to where we left off in Rogue Protocol, with Murderbot having obtained the evidence of its own past and what it did to be wiped (which didn't quite work) and heads back wi...

    http://wordnerdy.blogspot.com/2018/08...In the fourth (and final?) Murderbot novella, Murderbot has to go on a RESCUE MISSION!!!! Ugh, I love this series, Murderbot is such a great character and Wells does such a good job with the action and plotting. If you are someone who is maybe not into hard sci fi but like the Becky Chambers books, this is definitely a series to look into. I can’t wait to see what Wells does next. A/A-.__A review copy was...
  • Janet Martin
    Murderbot ties up her story with a return to the characters who were there at the beginning. She nearly sacrifices everything to rescue and protect the humans who cared about her, and is rewarded with her freedom, although no one who cares about others is ever really "free." Although this is the supposed wind up of a 4 novella series, I would really like to see more of Murderbot in the future. Terrific episode
  • Veronica
    MURDERBOT HAS A FAMILY AND IT MAKES ME SO HAPPY. This is a wonderful ending that wraps up the immediate dangers facing our favorite murderbot and its friends but leaves a space open for further adventures.
  • Kaylie
    I can’t believe there’s no more MurderBot after this! Delightful as always.
  • Emily

    So good I’m almost mad about it.
  • Laura
    Watching Murderbot evolve over these four novellas has been such a treat. Even though it claims all it wants to do is quietly watch its serials, clearly the relationships with people, ART and Miki have changed it beyond all recognition. It's to the author's credit that this never feels forced. Best news: there's going to be more of Muderbot, this time as a novel.eARC provided by publisher.
