The end of a series. It’s a bitter sweet time but I’m happy to see this series end and not get dragged out.

So I found this book on audible and it looked kinda interesting, what really sold me was the Sample of the book which talked about Bob who waking up can remember being hit by a car but nothing after. He attempts to talk with a shrink who was waiting for him to wake up. Unfortunately, he is talking with a synthesized voice. What happens next is amazing.
Title: We Are Legion (We Are Bob)
Series: Bobivese; Book 1
Author: Dennis E. Taylor
ROTS Setting: Future
Synopsis: Bob Johansson has just sold his software company and is looking forward to a life of leisure. There are places to go, books to read, and movies to watch. So it’s a little unfair when he gets himself killed crossing the street. Bob wakes up a century later to find that corpsicles have been declared to be without rights, and he is now the property of the state. He has been uploaded into computer hardware and is slated to be the controlling AI in an interstellar probe looking for habitable planets. The stakes are high: no less than the first claim to entire worlds. If he declines the honor, he’ll be switched off, and they’ll try again with someone else. If he accepts, he becomes a prime target. There are at least three other countries trying to get their own probes launched first, and they play dirty.
The safest place for Bob is in space, heading away from Earth at top speed. Or so he thinks. Because the universe is full of nasties, and trespassers make them mad – very mad.
Recommendation: I would definitely recommend this book.

Wow, I can’t believe we talked for 6 hours a couple of days ago. I think we need to talk more often.

This is one that Lisa read a while ago that I’d been meaning to read ever since. She described it kind of like Harry Potter but the only thing similar is “magic school” and even that starts to get a bit frayed only a short way in.
Title: The Iron Trial
