Just finished listening to this story, loved the ride along on a different twist in the science fiction realm. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

I have read this book a number of times, the performance of the Narrator suits the story so well.
The movie is great, the book is awesome.
Do yourself a favour and get this.

Great narrator, poor story.

This is probably the first book I stopped listening to and want to get a refund for.
The timeline is unrealistically fast, the main character is unbelievable and hardly likable.
The science is, well non-scientific at best and rarely plausible.
The political overtones and statements were grating, and it was written from the point of view of a gun nut as opposed to a nerd.
There are gems in there, but too much bad story telling for me to keep listening.

Would you listen to We Are Legion (We Are Bob) again? Why?

I will be listening again, it's got a few sci fi pop culture references (ok a lot) that I enjoy.

What did you like best about this story?

The sens of humor the author had with the main character(s). Nice way to theorise on how AI may be developed and change.

Which character – as performed by Ray Porter – was your favourite?

Bob, there isn't anyone else, except Guppie I guess, even that was well done.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Come on a voyage with me, and me, and him (no really it's just em again).

Any additional comments?

I can't wait until next month, I'm buying the next one outright.

Great story, great production.

It's a rollercoaster ride from start to finish, the action just keeps going.
Love the narration, the voices are great.
I'll be spending most of the year listening to the series I expect.
