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.

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.

Just like the first "Bobiverse" book, I, loved this one too. indeed, I'd been on the edge of my seat for weeks waiting for it, and wasn't at all disappointed.

This is the sort of book I dream of - wonderful story - genuinely imaginative, creative, and absolutely took me to places I would have never got under my own steam.

The writing flows beautifully, and has a lot of humour to it. The author drops in lots of pleasing references to classic SciFi which is fun.

The story takes us on stage two of the journey out into the universe (Bobiverse), meeting new lifeforms, challenges, perils, and gold old-fashioned bad-tempered humans. It's clever and thought-provoking. But mostly it's fun. Listening to this makes me smile.

I just loved this and can't wait for the next in the series.
