The SecUnit who (secretly) refers to itself as "Murderbot" hacked its own governor module, so it could go rogue and kill all the humans if it wanted, but it would rather spend its time watching Sanctuary Moon. Unfortunately, its humans keep getting themselves into danger. Even more unfortunately, Murderbot actually finds itself caring about these humans. It's hard being a heartless killing machine when you have feelings.

One part sexy rogue’s tale, one part intellectual exploration of the nature of history, one part examination of how people are marginalized by the powerful, all wrapped up in a tale of frustrated love and surveillance, this wild novel wriggles through genres, tones, and themes like a Dickensian pickpocket disappearing into a crowded London street. You won’t read anything like it this year. One of my favorite books of 2018.
