ARTIFICIAL CONDITION The Murderbot Diaries, Book 2

by | Read by Kevin R. Free

Science Fiction • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

In the second novella in The Murderbot Diaries, narrator Kevin R. Free finds delicate nuances in Murderbot's developing personality. On a quest to research its own disastrous past, the former security android hitches a ride aboard an unmanned research transport. The AI pilot's voice is a nice blend of sarcastic and robotic tones, and Free does an equally fine job with the voices of other characters, particularly the gender-neutral ones, both artificial and human. At times, Free seems to run short of air at the ends of long phrases, and at one point he can be heard to swallow mid-sentence, but overall he delivers a strong performance in this satisfying follow-up to ALL SYSTEMS RED.
