The main character is well developed and Believable. The author has done a great job with the satire and making it a good story.

What happens when Robots have finally had enough? Well, to avoid a spoiler lets just say it's not pretty and comes with a distinct unpleasant smell. I enjoyed the second book in the Platoon F series as much as the first. I just wish it was a little longer. If you liked Platoon F: The SSMC Reluctant then I think you'll really enjoy this one.

Awesome. What a great parody of a rebellion. Our crew has been ordered to attend a medal ceremony and now find themselves standing in poop with the lights off. A demand from a group of robots state that they will not reverse this until they get some "human" rights, as in days off, apps and more. Although it is agreed that this would be discussed further both sides know that action will be taken. The military want the robots annihilated whilst the robots want a life. A theft of an old class starship from the museum, a silent escape and a killer robot sneaking on board. Whilst our Captain and crew are ordered to take down the robots even if it is in space. A gamble leaves the robots ship in danger of exploding and the killer robot in charge whilst non followers are allowed to board life boats to go to the pursuing ship. An explosion and now the dilemma. Will they take the robots back or give them a new start?
5.0 out of 5 starsThe Robots are revolting! Great Read.

‘Angry Robots’ is another light-hearted comedy romp through space by John Logsdon and Christopher Young. The e-book has recently been revised and expanded (as of 26th May 2017) and is now considerably longer than the original edition. It is another in the series following the adventures of Platoon F, a bunch of misfit androids under the command of Captain Don Harr (a human with a conscience and a soft spot for robots). But the robots on the planet Segnal are revolting from their menial labours, Captain Harr and his crew are ordered to remedy the situation. I greatly enjoyed this Platoon F story. It’s great that the story has been revised and expanded, and purchasers of the e-book have the opportunity to get a free copy of the original Angry Robots (before it was revised and expanded). Again being a ‘Platoon F’ novel which contains innuendo and adult concepts, I wouldn’t recommend this book for young children. But for the more mature reader it’s a great light-hearted easy-reading comedy. I recommend it to anyone who might like comedy in a sci-fi setting. Not recommended for readers who only like ‘hard sci-fi’.

Second book in the series was certainly not a let down! The writing style has developed from the first book and feel that they are really getting into their stride and the laughs are coming consistently.
The story follows the misfit band on lovable rouges that we were introduced to in Book 1 (SSMC Reluctant) however you do not need to have read this one to enjoy this book. I would say you would enjoy this if you like Red Dwarf/Hitchhikers Guide etc. The book episodic in nature however it is a fully rounded story and shouldn't be overlooked in this genre. Filled with laugh and giggles from the start, I'm sure the rest will deliver as much as the start has.
