Bob Johansson didnt 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 forty years now, looking for habitable planets. But thats the only part of the plan thats still in one piece. A system-wide war has killed off 99.9% 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 considers all other life as food.Bob left Earth anticipating a life of exploration and blissful solitude. Instead hes 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 species in the local sphere ending up as dinner....

For We Are Many (Bobiverse #2) Reviews
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
I absolutely adored this. I laughed, I cried, it warmed my heart and broke it in places. My only grievance is that it's too damn short for my liking. I could have read twice this and not have gotten bored.
Despite they're being over 40 Bobs by the last page, at no time did I feel lost. There are plenty of POV's intertwined with a half dozen storylines and I liked every one of them. There is just something about this series that speaks to my inner geek (okay, i'll admit, in my case it doesn't have ...more
Wow. Book one was good, but when book two ended, I just exclaimed out loud, "What the heck? How can the book be over?" It wasn't that it was an inappropriate place for the book to end - it was just that I wanted to keep going. I wasn't ready to leave the Bobiverse. And book #3 isn't out yet!?! How can I wait until August?
Anyway, the ratings:
The characters are fun; they grow, the learn, they keep going. They are fun and complex. They delve in the philosophy of wh ...more
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
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.
This is one of those books you read for shits & giggles – is this a universal saying? Its fun escapism that should not be overanalysed.
We Are Legion (We Are Bob) really took me by surprise, it had a unique angle to the space theme and I liked the main protagonist(s). With this second installment you know exactly what you are going to get. Exactly!
There is very little new to be had. There are plenty of Bobs, and I mean plenty. And I think that caused a slight distraction for me – there were j ...more
Another great adventure in the Bobiverse.
Will the growing race of Bobs settle into the role of benevolent minor deities, shepherding their biological neighbors, or head for the galactic horizon? How will their humanity be expressed now that they are starting to really understand what it means to be immortal?
Assuming, of course, that they survive the coming danger.
Can't wait for the next book.
I seriously cannot get enough of the Bobiverse! This series is perfect for us sci-fi nerds. And the icing on the cake? The performance of Ray Porter in the audiobook!
In book 2, we have so many Bobs that I've pretty much lost track. But it doesn't matter. Each of them have their own little quirks and I'm enamored with them all.
The Bobs are now spread out over 40 light years throughout the universe and have discovered several viable planets for colonization as Earth is no longer habitable. Among ...more
