"Martha Wells's Hugo, Nebula, Alex, and Locus Award-winning, New York Times and USA Today bestselling series, The Murderbot Diaries, comes to a thrilling conclusion in Exit Strategy. Murderbot wasn't programmed to care. So, its decision to help the only human who ever showed it respect must be a system glitch, right? Having traveled the width of the galaxy to unearth details of its own murderous transgressions, as well as those of the GrayCris Corporation, Murderbot is heading home to help Dr. Mensah--its former owner (protector? friend?)--submit evidence that could prevent GrayCris from destroying more colonists in its never-ending quest for profit. But who's going to believe a SecUnit gone rogue? And what will become of it when it's caught?"--provided by publisher.

A Quick, Entertaining Read with a Familiar Formula

4 stars

I picked up Exit Strategy, as it is something incredibly convenient and refreshing about these novellas. That being said, Exit Strategy adheres to a similar pattern to its predecessors, making it feel somewhat repetitive. Despite this, Martha Wells keeps the pacing and action engaging, ensuring I have a fun, entertaining read each time. While I wish there was more variation in the storyline or that the author explored new ideas, I can't deny that I still look forward to each novella in the series, and Exit Strategy was no exception.

Review of 'Exit Strategy' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

And Murderbot concludes for now. I really liked this, especially as Murderbot became their own unique thing and this wasn't just another 'robot becomes human' boring SF. Again, I note the caveat about pricing but the whole series was very high quality and definitely recommended.

2022 Re-read
On this re-read this also seemed to be about Murderbot 'earning' their place to their own satisfaction. Previous review stands, this is just quality entertainment.
