The reviews and press released promised snark. I wanted snark. I realize what a wanted was Murderbot self-aware snark not whinging, adolescent snark. I don't find any of these characters cutting-edge or innovative--they just seem self-centered. And the plot is incredibly slow.

I tried to finish this novel by reading a couple of chapters a day, but then I realized that I had read six other novellas and novelettes while slogging through, so I am abandoning the novel in Chapter 16.

Still trying to decide if I can count this as read yet because I didn't make it halfway.
