Bob Johansson didnt believe in an afterlife, so waking up after being killed in a car accident was a shock. To add to the surprise, he is now a sentient computer and the controlling intelligence for a Von Neumann probe.Bob and his copies have been spreading out from Earth for forty years now, looking for habitable planets. But thats the only part of the plan thats still in one piece. A system-wide war has killed off 99.9% of the human race; nuclear winter is slowly making the Earth uninhabitable; a radical group wants to finish the job on the remnants of humanity; the Brazilian space probes are still out there, still trying to blow up the competition; And the Bobs have discovered a spacefaring species that considers all other life as food.Bob left Earth anticipating a life of exploration and blissful solitude. Instead hes a sky god to a primitive native species, the only hope for getting humanity to a new home, and possibly the only thing that can prevent every species in the local sphere ending up as dinner....

For We Are Many (Bobiverse #2) Reviews
Fun, fun and more fun. Plus some seriousness. This is literary popcorn, you can not put it down.
If you have an Audible account, you have heard of these books. Actually.... if you have an AMAZON account, period, you've probably seen these books on display somewhere in the emails or ads on amazon.
Because for one reason or another, they literally advertise these books up the butt.
I did a quick search in my gmail inbox to see how many emails they have sent me about this series - and whether it was through direct or indirect advertising, I have received about 24 emails from Audib ...more
Never go on a long business trip to the Southern hemisphere and buy only the first two of the Bobiverse series books. They're not even cliff-hangers; this light space opera flat-out leaves each volume hanging. And I've got another week here…. That's another way of saying: read these books.
Geeky fun continues in Dennis Taylor's For We Are Many (Bobiverse #2). It has been 40 years since Bob began exploring the cosmos (Bobiverse #1) searching for habitable worlds. There are many copies of Bob now, all interacting with each other. And there's competition from other space probes launched from Earth right before the nuclear powers started firing at each other.

4.5 stars - rounded up because the concept of this series is just so fun. The Bobs are expanding and finding places for humanity to settle. I love the exploration aspects, the humor and the creativity. I had this with whispersync, but I mostly used audio because the reader is excellent.
Dennis, I hate you!
To put my emotional outburst into perspective, please, allow me to tell you a story.
This is a story of a small boy. A very happy, cheerful, boy.
Boy likes ice cream.
Boy likes ice cream so much, when mom told him they're going out to have one later, he couldn't contain his emotions and shrieked out of pure joy.
Ice creams. Bringing out our inner shrieking child since 1660.
Boy is impatient now. Boy cannot wait.
He can barely think straight, waiting for the moment to go out and g ...more
A great sequel to the first book!
Do you feel like a holiday from the world? Do you feel like like you need to read something fun, something easy to race through, something that will immerse you in an interesting and entertaining universe? If so, Dennis E. Taylor's Bobiverse series should be your next reading destination.
Dennis E. Taylor writes books that are pure pleasure to read and We are Many is no exception.
The pages of We Are Many fly past, the story progresses in interesting and exciting directions and conflict is ever p ...more
