Publisher's Summary

The epic and highly anticipated conclusion to the listener-favorite series that had countless Audible listeners (and employees) hooked from the very first Bob—featuring, as always, a flawless performance from the inimitable Ray Porter.

Being a sentient spaceship really should be more fun. But after spreading out through space for almost a century, Bob and his clones just can't stay out of trouble.

They've created enough colonies so humanity shouldn't go extinct. But political squabbles have a bad habit of dying hard, and the Brazilian probes are still trying to take out the competition. And the Bobs have picked a fight with an older, more powerful species with a large appetite and a short temper.

Still stinging from getting their collective butts kicked in their first encounter with the Others, the Bobs now face the prospect of a decisive final battle to defend Earth and its colonies. But the Bobs are less disciplined than a herd of cats, and some of the younger copies are more concerned with their own local problems than defeating the Others.

Yet salvation may come from an unlikely source. A couple of eighth-generation Bobs have found something out in deep space. All it will take to save the Earth and perhaps all of humanity is for them to get it to Sol - unless the Others arrive first.

    "Clean ending to a fantastic series"

    Note: Early readers need to redownload to get the complete book!!
    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. As with any series ending, you always wish there was more, and this book didn't feel as complete as the others, but was still a great read. The conflicts that arose were varied, and exposes the depths of humanity's desire for power and self interest. They were not as complex as in the previous two books, and the resolution came about a bit easy at times, but it didn't take away my enjoyment. Besides, we wanted to get to the battle with the Others anyway. Again, it was over a bit too quickly, but definitely gives you a sense of finality. The only minor sticking point is the Medeiros story line doesn't feel as complete. There are some real emotional highs and lows in this book I don't want to come close to spoiling. Overall a great end to a fantastic series.

    Ray Porter's performance is amazing.

    Do not read this book without finishing the previous two.

    "The bobiverse is a closed universe"

    Dennis E Taylor's 3rd installment, All These Worlds, of his wonderfully entertaining 'Bobiverse' series is another gem of a listen. Picking up where book 2 left off, the Bobs are still dealing with the crazy Brazlian, various human factions and foibles as several worlds are settled, and rushing to complete the Earth diaspora before the alien menace attacks the Sol system. At the same time, various Bobs deal with some basic human emotions of attachment, love, and loss with each offering a unique perspective on working through the feelings and eventual resolution with some tender and even tear-jerking scenes.

    The sci-fi elements extend the overall themes of earlier installments. The Bobs become more creative in terms of adapting environments for human habitation, foment rebellion, and up end the legal system. While the closure on the Brazilian was a bit anti-climatic, the alien menace denouement was a nail biter all the way. And while the finale of sailing off into the galactic sunset was a bit sad, the sense that Bob can rightfully claim, he did it his way leads to a satisfying ending.

    The narration is first rate not only for the plethora of Bobs, but the large supporting cast of both genders and the range of actions.

    Story
    "What a great third book!"
    Where does All These Worlds rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is another entertaining book from the Bobiverse. It has the science and action along with some bittersweet storylines.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I was worried when I saw this third installment was 20% shorter than the previous books-- but it was wonderfully assembled and moved all of the previous storylines forward in just "the right" way.


    Have you listened to any of Ray Porter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Ray Porter is always great, but he really captures the emotional side of this story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was entertainment. There were funny parts and tense parts and sad parts.

    If you liked books I and II, you have to read (listen to) book III. The performance was fantastic, this will forever be the voice for the Bobs in my head.

    "Deeply Moving"
    Any additional comments?

    Wow, Dennis E Taylor doesn't disappoint. Not to give too much away but this book wraps up the Bobiverse story arc quite nicely. Most Bob conflicts come to a conclusion and there are a few surprises along the way. The largest difference this book had from the others was that of tone. It was still funny but also much more melancholy. The first book was extremely sarcastic and funny, the second book was serious and foreboding, and this one is poetically sad and philosophical. The ending to this book nearly had me in tears. Much as in the same way of the Bobiverse book series, all good things come to an end. That being said, Dennis E Taylor, PLEASE DO NOT LET THIS BE THE LAST BOOK IN THE BOBIVERSE! there are so many more stories to tell.

    "Mistake was made and corrected"

    My initial assumption was correct - the recording came without the last hour/14 chapters, but now it contains the full book. You just have to redownload it. If Audible can contact early buyers they should do so, because it would be a great shame if they wouldn't be able to experience a proper closure to this great series.

    "Best story series I've read since Wheel of Time"

    This is quirky, engaging, scientifically plausible in a way so many stories fail to deliver, has enough shiny references to star trek and science fiction franchises to make a big bang theory or Firefly fan very very happy, and manages miraculously to make a lot of Bob's individually personalised and uniquely geek-qualified. Didn't bugger up the ending either...satisfying closure, very well written, very well read.

    "Another fantastic continuation of the Bobiverse!"

    Loved It? Absolutely!

    Narration? on point as always. Despite all being Bob's, the differences in the narrator's voices, and inflections, are incredibly well done!

    All I can say is I've enjoyed all three Bobiverse books so much, I put the series in my top 10. I hope this is not the end of them. I want to hear more about their adventures and how the Bobiverse, and bobnet expands.

    Story
    "Loitering in the stone age and missing opportunity"

    I really liked the first book, was a touch underwhelmed by the second book and hate myself for disliking the third.

    I am sad to say that I have found this third instalment very superficial in that it gave the impression of simply typing up all the loose ends to close the series and introducing no interesting or new concepts. What's more I found a lot of characters and thought processes unrealistic.

    The others were building a dyson sphere in the book 2 and I half expected this to be about Matrioshka brain of the others versus parallel computing of the Bob, but all it came down to was just a big old fight with nukes and lasers and I felt that it was a missed opportunity to make the story thought-provoking like a culture novel would. The fact that the others were barely even mentioned until chapter 63 was another irritant in my opinion. Instead, this sc-fi novel lingered for at least four times as long as it needed to on the stone age deltans.

    Lastly, I have spent an unreasonably large amount of effort to not just stop listening when the colony council decided to attack one of Bob's clones in an effort to retain their power over the colony, after having been warned and dismissing Bob's objections and concerns and after Brigitte's daughter has done everything possible to annoy the Bob clone.

    BOB! the God-like AI that controls weapons, food and everyone alive owes their life to! If It were me, I would let it go taxidermist on my mother if it felt like it, but apparently in the Bobiverse, everyone and their dog are happy to just underestimate and dismiss the all-powerful being, with neither respect, gratitude, awe, nor fear motivating them to at least taking heed to Bob's input.

    I did once again tear up at the funeral scene however, but I think that speaks more about y being a mellow wreck of a person with age, more than anything.

    I am very sorry, but I did not like this book.
