Bob Johansson didnt believe in an afterlife, so waking up after being killed in a car accident was a shock.

For We Are Many (Bobiverse #2) Reviews
This is a great sequel to We Are Legion (We Are Bob) that brought about significant development in both the characters and the plot.
Character development in the Bobs, a Replicant, a computer programme, you say? Yes, completely!! Firstly, each clone is a different variation of the original Bob and they do differ sufficiently to have distinctive personalities. One just does not know how the newly cloned cohorts will turn out to be, i.e. which psyche of original Bob will be most dominant ...more
Executive Summary: Another fun entry in this series. Not quite as good as the first book, but still has me looking forward to the next one.
Audiobook: Ray Porter once again does a good job here. He's speaks clearly at a good volume and with good inflection. He does a few voices, though as most of the characters are variations of Bob, he doesn't go too crazy with it.
My one complaint with the first book was too much time with Bob 2.0, and not enough time with Bill. This book definitel ...more
The Bobiverse is growing rapidly and the Bobs have their hands full.
The handful of survivors on Earth are being evacuated but there are people trying to sabotage that. the The Deltans, the first alien species that the Bobs have encountered are at risk from an even nastier danger than the gorilloids, and they're having growing pains besides. The Vulcan and Romulan colonies have their own issues. The mad Brazilian is still out there. And worst of all, the terrifying discovery that one of the Bob's ...more
4.5 stars - rounded up because the concept of this series is just so fun. The Bobs are expanding and finding places for humanity to settle. I love the exploration aspects, the humor and the creativity. I had this with whispersync, but I mostly used audio because the reader is excellent.
Let me begin by saying that I FINISHED FIRST! Yep, this was a buddy-read with (amongst others) Brad and I FINISHED FIRST.
Ironically, this goofy reaction is exactly something one of the Bobs would have done too (so yes, it fits the theme).
This is the second book in the Bobiverse series and it was wonderful again. Sure, some say that it's a bit slow because of the science and exploration and different locations, but that is exactly what I love (apart from the fantastic narrator, Ray Porter, in the ...more
A great sequel to the first book!
A solid middle child of the trilogy, if you enjoyed the first one I'd recommend this as a worthy equal, if not quite as engaging as the first.
There are elements which feel like the story is treading water, ticking off items on a checklist in preparation for the grande finale. Don't get me wrong it's a great checklist, well written and managing to balance humor, suspense and gravitas. It's technobabble is thorough enough to remove any feelings of "space magic" giving the book its grounded feel. ...more
Dennis, I hate you!
To put my emotional outburst into perspective, please, allow me to tell you a story.
This is a story of a small boy. A very happy, cheerful, boy.
Boy likes ice cream.
Boy likes ice cream so much, when mom told him they're going out to have one later, he couldn't contain his emotions and shrieked out of pure joy.
Ice creams. Bringing out our inner shrieking child since 1660.
Boy is impatient now. Boy cannot wait.
He can barely think straight, waiting for the moment to go out and g ...more
