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?

Like all entries in this series, the story was fun and entertaining. The series let the author show how strange human behavior might seem to an outsider. And her imagined world of robotic minds is very satisfying to a computer professional such as myself.

I will miss these endearing and exciting stories.

Sci-fi's favorite antisocial AI is back on a mission. The case against the too-big-to-fail GrayCris Corporation is floundering, and more importantly, authorities are beginning to ask more questions about where Dr. Mensah's SecUnit is. And Murderbot would rather those questions went away. For good. Martha Wells' Rogue Protocol is the third in the Murderbot Diaries series, starring a humanlike android who keeps getting sucked back into adventure after adventure, though it just wants to be left alone, away from humanity and small talk.

The characters were believable, interesting, and reasonable - not the simplistic jerks you often see in tv shows to cheaply heighten drama. If you like astronomy and physics and like to read entertaining stories where they are an important focus, this is a story for you.

Some interesting story ideas but the story went on too long. The reader did a good job of performing the story.

I enjoyed parts of the story, but it seemed way too long in some areas. The Laney Washburn character was my favorite, as well as Preston and Markov. The audible reader was tedious during the first chapter but got better as the story went along. It kept my attention, but I cringed alot.
