The Friday 56 (192) & Book Beginnings: Rogue Protocol by Martha Wells

The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice where every Friday you pick a book and turn to page 56 or 56%, and select a sentence or a few, as long as it's not a spoiler. For the full rules, visit the the page HERE

Book Beginnings is a weekly meme hosted by Rose City Reader that asks you to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you're reading.


Synopsis from Goodreads...

SciFi’s favorite antisocial A.I. is again on a mission. The case against the too-big-to-fail GrayCris Corporation is floundering, and more importantly, authorities are beginning to ask more questions about where Dr. Mensah’s SecUnit is. And Murderbot would rather those questions went away. For good.


Beginning: "I have the worst luck with bot-driven transports."

56: "I was pretty sure I kept my face blank, but Abene and Miki turned to look at me. Wilken kept moving."


Comments: The first book I read in 2021 was Rogue Protocol. I really loved this story, and I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. What are you reading this week?

  3. Rogue Protocol is doing the rounds lately! Hope you enjoy it as much as all the hype. It's not quite my kind of read, but my husband might actually enjoy this one.

    Have a good weekend!

  8. This one sounds good, although I don't read sci fi very often. I'm reading a "multi-generational family story" called Pale Morning Light with Violet Swan by Deborah Reed that I really like, about a 93 year old artist (Violet Swan) and her messed up family.
