About the book

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.

My notes:

If you like scifi then this is a must read, you will laugh your a… off by the funny references to Star-Trek.  Humor is a big part of this series.

The book also force us to think about the world, how everything is changing and how what is normal today may be very very different in the future.  The book also adresses AI and virtual entities.

I HIGHLY reccomend this series, even though it will keep you listening for hour after hour..

Very long 😉 (if you listen to the entire series)

I usually listen to audiobooks which is why the length is in hours and minutes

Listening to audiobooks to me has the advantage that you can do it while you walk, train, commute and just relax.
