All These Worlds - Bobiverse 2017


Dennis E. Taylor

Well here we are at the conclusion (?)  of the Bobiverse trilogy.  Bob, Bill, Will, Howard etc   need to wrap things up.  They better develop the android bodies so they can interact better with the short-lived humans.  I liked the series but have to admit that this was a little disappointing.  I thought another human would be scanned as a replicant and would have some new interactions and possibly mixing of ideas and maybe some baby replicants who were not just clones.  Oh well.


The story about “The Others” was exciting and ended ina satisfying way.  Maybe book 4 could follow original Bob as he travels out into the unknown and possibly meets a new type of alien life?
