Publisher's Summary

The highly anticipated sequel to Audible's Best of 2016 - Science Fiction winner, We Are Legion (We Are Bob); a book listeners are calling "so much fun", "what science fiction was meant to be", and what would happen if "Andy Weir and Ernest Cline had a lovechild".
Bob Johansson didn't believe in an afterlife, so waking up after being killed in a car accident was a shock. To add to the surprise, he is now a sentient computer and the controlling intelligence for a Von Neumann probe.
Bob and his copies have been spreading out from Earth for 40 years now, looking for habitable planets. But that's the only part of the plan that's still in one piece. A system-wide war has killed off 99.9 percent of the human race; nuclear winter is slowly making the Earth uninhabitable; a radical group wants to finish the job on the remnants of humanity; the Brazilian space probes are still out there, still trying to blow up the competition; and the Bobs have discovered a spacefaring species that sees all other life as food.
Bob left Earth anticipating a life of exploration and blissful solitude. Instead he's become a sky god to a primitive native species, the only hope for getting humanity to a new home, and possibly the only thing that can prevent every living thing in the local sphere from ending up as dinner.
Listener favorite Ray Porter returns to narrate Bob - and his many incarnations - in all of their geeky glory.

THE FECAL MATTER HAS HIT THE ATMOSPHERIC PROJECTOR

WELCOME TO BOBNET
I did listen to all of this and I did enjoy it. It is not as good as book one and it is really a filler or story stretcher to get us to the next book. We don't see or talk to the main antagonist (THE OTHERS) until 6 hours and 40 minutes into the nine hour book. When an author waits until two thirds of the book is over to introduce the main bad guy, than he is setting up the next book. Do not get me wrong interesting things happen and I am sure the biggest nerds of the crowd are tickled pink. I was starting to wonder if their was going to be a plot, a romance or exploration of space. There are a few confrontations with minor bad guys in the first six hours, but they are minor and are handled fairly easily. There was no challenge for Bob.

THE RISK OF GODHOOD
One of the main themes that is explored in the first six hours, is Bob trying to help too much. Every time he does something he thinks will help, something bad happens as a result. I loved this theme and I liked the way the author did not cheat, and made it tough on Bob.

BOB HAS NO JUNK
We have been told for years that sex is in our heads and I strongly agree. I also feel that love and companionship are extremely important to mankind. I believe without such companionship, we suffer mentally. There was a hint at a romance in book 2 and some talk about making other replicants. I believe the introduction of women to the storyline will benefit the series greatly.

THERE CAN NEVER BE TOO MANY OF US. THERE CAN ONLY BE NOT ENOUGH FOOD.
I really like the sound of these bad guys. They sound very evil and like a huge challenge for Bob. I wish they would have been involved in the plot earlier, but at least they are here to cause havoc now. Hopefully book three will show us more of the evil beings.

REVERSE PSYCHOLOGY, NOT JUST FOR HUMANS
Don't listen to Ray Porter or any of the books, he reads. (Reverse psychology)

Hooked? No not me, as I sit in a corner holding myself

This book doesn't fail to excite and entrap me into this story and want for more. Like so many others who love this book as much is I do, I am now beside myself waiting for book 3. Dennis E Taylor has captured in my view, the addiction of old-school serials that hearken to the days of Flash Gordon and original Star Trek, but brings enough of the new technology and realism with a fresh mix of Bob comedy that has made this series of books to move to my top 10 list of best stories of all time. Douglas Adams has a run for his money now with Dennis and the bobs!!

Absolutely enthralling!

A highly competent and entertaining follow on to We Are Bob. Bob has expanded his cadre and further sentient life is found. Is it friendly or not? You'll need to read for yourself to find out. The humour carries on from the first book, despite some of the topics being up there at extinction level! Quite a feat to carry off. And if you know your comedy programmes you'll laugh at the multitude of references.

The narration was excellent again. The story is gaining momentum and there's definitely a sensation of rooting for team Bob. There's lot of metalwork being harvested here and flung around in the form of drones and new ships.

The conclusion to this book sets up a great opportunity for the next book to excel. I do hope, despite the first two books being excellent, there's no desire to milk this to a series of unending books, hopefully it'll keep tight and rich and give us more of what we've enjoyed to date.

Disappointing follow up to a great first book

Any additional comments?

I struggled to finish this book after listening to the first in the series avidly. There weren't enough new ideas or plot developments to sustain my interest and the endless repetition of phrases such as "I frame-jacked to save a few milliseconds" is becoming annoying.<br/><br/>With so many Bob's now in existance, and so few voices to differentiate them, it is also hard to follow the "character" development - to the point where I gave up trying. I'm not sure I missed much.<br/><br/>Disappointingly it feels like this book was rushed out to capitalise on the success of We Are Legion. I dont think I'll be listening to the third.

Fantastic

Other than a truly terrible Australian/New Zealand accent, the narrator is among the best. The story itself is a fantastic and, as far as current scientific knowledge goes, realistic take on a human diaspora from the Sol System and the troubles potential in current and future nationalistic tensions.

I heartily recommend the series to all and will be moving on to the third book with a keen interest.

Just as good as the first one.

Ray Porter does an excellent job of the narration, he keeps the book entertaining and emotional. f
If you liked the first one you will love this one.
