The work of a promising journeyman.
A nicely written, poorly constructed, and ultimately purposeless book.
This reads like the sketch of a novel rather than the novel itself.
This is a great read, and well deserving of your time and money.
Unlike the first book, this book isn't satisfying on its own.
The Murderbot Diaries sees Ms. Wells coming back full force.
The kind of magic that McCaffrey mere brought to bear is sadly missing.
Deserves its place as a classic.
The only reason to buy the collection is for the Riverworld stories.
Effective time filler, but a story that will vanish from memory almost immediately.
There's a decent story here, but it could and should have been told in 200 pages, instead of well over 600 of excruciating minutiae.
A passable YA novel, and probably fun if you're already immersed.
