Bob leaves for Delta Eridani, Milo for Omicron2 Eridani, and Mario for Beta Hydri. Bill and Riker work on clones of themselvesI have been attempting to expand on the science fiction authors I read. I discovered this debut novel by Dennis E. Taylor and decided to try it. I try to read debut novels to support new authors. The idea of the story I found intriguing. A brilliant software engineer was hit by a car and died unexpectedly. He had requested his brain be frozen at his death. When he is revived a hundred years later, he discovers that his mind has been co-opted by a group of religious fanatics called FAITH. Bob’s mind is now the computer AI of a space probe sent out to explore the galaxy for a new planet to inhabit. Bob then creates more of himself to spread out around the universe looking for an inhabitable planet. It turns out two other groups are hunting for an inhabitable planet also and will do whatever it takes to achieve their goal. Senior Minister Travis: FAITH minister within the Ministry of Truth sent to evaluate Bob 2.0 after being awoken (given artificial consciousness as part of the HEAVEN Project).
Boring, but Practical: He's not an engineer or a programmer, but he is an excellent tactician and a ruthless soldier. He is able to set several ambushes for Bobs using unexpected tactics, including secret Brazilian projects he was keeping in reserve. Eternal English: Subverted. He was specifically trained to speak in a dialect that Bob would find familiar. At one time, we thought that the way life came together was almost completely random, only needing an energy gradient to get going. But as we’ve moved into the information age, we’ve come to realize that life is more about information than energy. Fire has most of the characteristics of life. It eats, it grows, it reproduces. But fire retains no information. It doesn’t learn; it doesn’t adapt. The five millionth fire started by lightning will behave just like the first. But the five hundredth bacterial division will not be like the first one, especially if there is environmental pressure. That’s DNA. And RNA. That’s life. … Dr. Steven Carlisle, from the Convention panel Exploring the Galaxy”
Oh, Crap!: Has this reaction when he realizes that Riker knows where he is and is about to drop a buster on him. Charles reports material shortages to Riker, Riker tries to sell UN on putting Earth population in stasis While I enjoy science fiction, I'm not a die-hard reader of it. I kept seeing this book pop up in my recommendations, and I kept ignoring it each time I read the publisher's summary. It seemed like a generic plot and nothing notable. I suspect the author of the publisher's summary only read the first few chapters, as they didn't really seem to know what the book was about.
This is an irreverent comedy adventure takes, akin to "Ready Player One" and "Magic 2.0", and if you enjoyed those then you'll probably love this. It's also been compared to "The Martian", which is entirely wrong. In terms of sophistication and internal consistency, "The Martian" is a fine wine, and this is grape soda. Either can really hit the spot, but you should know what you're in for. MD5 of a better version of this file (if applicable). Fill this in if there is another file that closely matches this file (same edition, same file extension if you can find one), which people should use instead of this file. If you know of a better version of this file outside of Anna’s Archive, then please upload it. The entire story has charm, extremely good characters, several interesting locations and a fantastic sense of humor. You’ll certainly look forward to the next book in the series.
Engaging, fast, and entertaining, WE ARE LEGION, is a great popcorn read that reminded me how much fun science fiction can sometimes be. This is the first book in Bobiverse Series by Dennis E. Taylor. Have you at any time ever wished that you can undertake space Jerkass: When he finally has a conversation with Riker he doesn't even try to justify his actions and seems to have no regrets over killing hundreds of people including Homer.
