Inside Academia dE looking for habitable planets The stakes are high no less than the first claim to entire worlds If heeclines the honor he ll be switched off and they ll try again with someone else If he accepts he becomes a prime target So a story where a contemporary human is turned into an AI AND HAS AI LIKE ABILITIES WHILE FAMILIAR IS ALREADY has AI like abilities while familiar is already interesting to me The fact that Dennis E Taylor wants to tell the story of a modern human becoming a self replicating Von Neumann probe opens up the entire universe and allows the reader to experience it from a perspective we understand and can relate to the lovable geekOne of the things I loved about this book was all of the research and effort Taylor took to get the Science right The lecture Bob attends in Vegas called Exploring the Galaxy is freuently uoted to remind us that this concept is grounded in Science Eventually the entire universe will be explored by self replicating probes Combining this idea with a relatable human personality was a brilliant premise and I can t wait to see where the series goesI hate to keep bashing this book but the best reviewed Comedy Science Fiction of 2016 is Mechanical Failure by Joe Zieja Zieja goes for a laugh a minute and ends up inducing a groan a minute He comes up with the joke first then contrives the plot to Protest Politics in the Marketplace deliver the joke We are Legion has a strong plot and manages to be funny along the way Itoesn t try too hard There are plenty of pop culture references and maybe a few too many Star Trek and Star Wars jokes but it never goes over the top Bob s behaviour is pretty believable for someone put in his positionHere is an example joke from We are LegionNoting someone s cowardly tendencies Bob Celestial Tears Hidden Alchemy describes them as like Bill Paxton s character in Aliens Then a page or 2 later after finding out the guy is not a complete wuss he says I mentally upgraded him to Michael Biehn Now this made me laugh out loud but if youidn t like the joke at least it was The Exposition of Artistic Research delivered in a way where you weren t taken out of the story and shaking your head goingI also must congratulate Taylor onelivering the first actually funny Australian joke I have readMy minor criticisms of the book would be It seemed like Bob should have woken up 1000 years in the future not criticisms of the book would be It seemed like Bob should have woken up 1000 years in the future not Some etail on how the world ended up crazy theocracy would have been interesting although the Cliff Notes version was fun I m not that either narrator Ray Porter or Taylor knew exactly what to o with Homer view spoilerHe s kinda Shallow Grave dumb but kinda smart Some sort ofefective Bob might have been interesting I think of the Simpsons episode where all Homer s sperm bang into each other saying Doh I guess Homer is just a Bob who liked The Simpsons but The Economics of Agricultural Development didn t really sound like him Not too sure hide spoiler Belly laughs are one of the best things about being sentient and you should never miss a chance for one Fantastic to have my book clubiscuss We Are Legion It gave me a chance to reread this book and enjoy it all over again And then talk about the Prime Directive 2017So much geeky fun In addition to all the seemingly effortless tie ins to all that is nerdy Dennis Taylor s We Are Legion has a solid story both about humanity colonizing the stars and the nature of humanity itself This was an easy and fast paced read You may have already read Kim Stanley Robinson s excellent Mars trilogy Robinson s view on mankind reaching out to the stars seems solid Even with its ludicrous science fiction references could We Are Legion be just as plausibleA second read from me thinks it well might be Still loads of fun A conceptually broad fun light hearted science fiction romp It has the same sarcastic tone utilized in Old Man s War or The Martian and reads very much like the first section of a longer book I wasn t crazy about the storytelling and I thought it got a little bogged own with tedium in the second half but it is undeniably funIf you turn off the literary analysis corner of your brain you ll enjoy the romp with great concepts.
