Description

The highly anticipated sequel to Audible's Best of 2016 - Science Fiction winner, We Are Legion (We Are Bob); a book listeners are calling "so much fun", "what science fiction was meant to be", and what would happen if "Andy Weir and Ernest Cline had a lovechild".

Bob Johansson didn't 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 40 years now, looking for habitable planets. But that's the only part of the plan that's still in one piece. A system-wide war has killed off 99.9 percent 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 sees all other life as food.

Bob left Earth anticipating a life of exploration and blissful solitude. Instead he's become 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 living thing in the local sphere from ending up as dinner.

Listener favorite Ray Porter returns to narrate Bob - and his many incarnations - in all of their geeky glory.

So worth it for any sci-if fan

This is a general comment on the Bobiverse Series, not just this book (although it is fantastic).

Such a fun and interesting story line with an amazingly developed set of characters. To top it all of, the narration is absolutely stellar.

Don’t hesitate just enjoy!

Amazing story

For We Are Many is just more of what make the first book great. The narrative strings diverge to keep the story fresh and interesting. Ray Porter's reading is dynamic and exciting slowing down and speeding up to keep pace with the story.

THE FECAL MATTER HAS HIT THE ATMOSPHERIC PROJECTOR

WELCOME TO BOBNET
I did listen to all of this and I did enjoy it. It is not as good as book one and it is really a filler or story stretcher to get us to the next book. We don't see or talk to the main antagonist (THE OTHERS) until 6 hours and 40 minutes into the nine hour book. When an author waits until two thirds of the book is over to introduce the main bad guy, than he is setting up the next book. Do not get me wrong interesting things happen and I am sure the biggest nerds of the crowd are tickled pink. I was starting to wonder if their was going to be a plot, a romance or exploration of space. There are a few confrontations with minor bad guys in the first six hours, but they are minor and are handled fairly easily. There was no challenge for Bob.

THE RISK OF GODHOOD
One of the main themes that is explored in the first six hours, is Bob trying to help too much. Every time he does something he thinks will help, something bad happens as a result. I loved this theme and I liked the way the author did not cheat, and made it tough on Bob.

BOB HAS NO JUNK
We have been told for years that sex is in our heads and I strongly agree. I also feel that love and companionship are extremely important to mankind. I believe without such companionship, we suffer mentally. There was a hint at a romance in book 2 and some talk about making other replicants. I believe the introduction of women to the storyline will benefit the series greatly.

THERE CAN NEVER BE TOO MANY OF US. THERE CAN ONLY BE NOT ENOUGH FOOD.
I really like the sound of these bad guys. They sound very evil and like a huge challenge for Bob. I wish they would have been involved in the plot earlier, but at least they are here to cause havoc now. Hopefully book three will show us more of the evil beings.

REVERSE PSYCHOLOGY, NOT JUST FOR HUMANS
Don't listen to Ray Porter or any of the books, he reads. (Reverse psychology)

Hooked? No not me, as I sit in a corner holding myself

This book doesn't fail to excite and entrap me into this story and want for more. Like so many others who love this book as much is I do, I am now beside myself waiting for book 3. Dennis E Taylor has captured in my view, the addiction of old-school serials that hearken to the days of Flash Gordon and original Star Trek, but brings enough of the new technology and realism with a fresh mix of Bob comedy that has made this series of books to move to my top 10 list of best stories of all time. Douglas Adams has a run for his money now with Dennis and the bobs!!

Denis E.Taylor Sets A New Standard For Sci-Fi

Would you consider the audio edition of For We Are Many to be better than the print version?

Ray Porter is Legendary. His enactment, tempo, and changing speech patterns for each individual Bob is distinct and engaging. I do not believe the print version is any less compared to the audiobook but I will say Ray Porter adds a new dimension to the novel that cannot be appraised enough and would suggest to any reader to give the audio version a try.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Howard. He showed the humanity of the Bobs in a new way that was never explored in the first novel.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Death. Immortality is beginning to wear down on the first generation of Bobs. In a way, they are truly becoming akin to the sky god bob always joked about. It really shows the diverging character that is bob after every copy is born. How they handle each situation is completely different but yet so similar that you can see the Bob in them.

Any additional comments?

This series has blown my mind. Very few novels have I ever thought improved from the first as this one has. I'm looking forward to the next novel in this series and have officially added the author to my "Read any book they write " list.

Wow! Just Wow!

If wasn't for this annoying thing called reality, I'm sure I could have finished this easily in one sitting! That's really my only complaint is it ended😭! Continuing on the great foundation of "We Are Legion" we are finally introduced to the Universe's version of an apex predator and this time assimilation isn't even an option! Very intense scenarios are also played out on multiple layers. I WANT MORE!!!

2nd time through and it's only better!

I still need more Bob in my life!

Great book! Picks up where we left off in the first book and has all the awesome nerd isms we have come to expect from Mr. Taylor.

This series has everything for a great Sci Fi. Ray Porter does any amazing job of narrorating, as always.

Porter IS Bob!

Lots of fun here for sci-fi lovers in Book 2 of the Bobs' story. Of course, the Bobs are back--Bobs along with Bill, Riker, Howard, Mulder, and a myriad of other replicants intent on saving mankind from total annihilation.

I found this, the second book, just as much fun as the first story. The beginning of the book jumped around a bit, seemingly without direction, but it soon picked up with the discovery of the evil others. There's nothing predictable about this story, which I really appreciate. There's lots of lots of depth to the characters as they evolve over time. You'll also find plenty of humor, many references to sci-fi heroes of the past and other fictitious characters we all know, and lots of adventure.

Ray Porter is totally amazing as narrator. I haven't figured out whether he fits the characters like a glove or is it that they fit him like a glove? You would swear the book was written with him in mind, as he gives such a spectacular, uncannily good performance. His voice remains in my mind long after I turn the book off.

So, if you still have any reservations about entering the Bobiverse, read some of the other great reviews and get yourself convinced.

A near perfect continuation

Where does For We Are Many rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book is incredible, easily in my top 5 right along with We Are Legion (We Are Bob). Easily on par with another of my favorites, The Martian by Andy Weir.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Every main character is just a different iteration of Bob but Mulder brings more to this story than I originally thought he would. The side characters in this book are just as good as the original and Archimedes is still easily the best of them all.

What does Ray Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He brings the same varied life into this book as he did the first. However, there are a few words that are pronounced completely different in this book than the last (If you heard the first book you know exactly what I mean). This is a bit off-putting at first but after around an hour or so you get used to the new pronunciation.

Any additional comments?

This book is an absolute must have and I hope to see a lot more from this series! Please support this author and buy his books so he can make more! I promise you won't be disappointed!!!!

Next book is another year way? Reducing frame rate

Where does For We Are Many rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Bobiverse 1 was one of my favorite books of 2016. Bob 2 is basically a bunch of additional chapters in that story, which is fine by me. So much potential for this series

Who was your favorite character and why?

Haha - this is hilarious.

Have you listened to any of Ray Porter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Ray's an impressive voice actor who gets to show off his accent skills in this installment. He adds a lot to the story.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

My extreme reaction was at the end, when I realized I'd finished the book and now have to wait a year for the next installment. I envy the Bobs' ability to play with their perception of time.

Any additional comments?

Please write quickly, Dennis! Can't wait to see(hear) what happens next!
