Publisher's Summary

The epic and highly anticipated conclusion to the listener-favorite series that had countless Audible listeners (and employees) hooked from the very first Bob—featuring, as always, a flawless performance from the inimitable Ray Porter.

Being a sentient spaceship really should be more fun. But after spreading out through space for almost a century, Bob and his clones just can't stay out of trouble.

They've created enough colonies so humanity shouldn't go extinct. But political squabbles have a bad habit of dying hard, and the Brazilian probes are still trying to take out the competition. And the Bobs have picked a fight with an older, more powerful species with a large appetite and a short temper.

Still stinging from getting their collective butts kicked in their first encounter with the Others, the Bobs now face the prospect of a decisive final battle to defend Earth and its colonies. But the Bobs are less disciplined than a herd of cats, and some of the younger copies are more concerned with their own local problems than defeating the Others.

Yet salvation may come from an unlikely source. A couple of eighth-generation Bobs have found something out in deep space. All it will take to save the Earth and perhaps all of humanity is for them to get it to Sol - unless the Others arrive first.

Now what am I gonna do with my life?

I loved this series. I saw it on my recommendations for a while but I wasn't much of a SciFi fan. decided to try it and just wow. the story was amazing and captivating from beginning to end. the narration was the best that I've heard yet. I could visualize each characters facial features based on his tone before he gave the description of what they were suppose to look like. the story itself was great. it was one of the few series I've read that I've wanted to continue hearing more of. l usually get bored of a series in the middle but this one had me in the edge throughout the whole thing. I've been trying to find something else like this to listen to but no luck. When finishing the book I was just left with, what now? nothing can top that.
10/10 would recommend.

One of the best Scifi series I've ever read.

The kind of books you keep thinking about long after you read them. And Ray Porter is the best.

Excellent series

The narrator is great, the characters likeable, the story very interesting and the science informed. Excellent sci-fi that touches on many questions about what it is to be human and about the possible nature of consciousness. Cool premise...I thoroughly enjoyed the series.

loved it

I loved the entire series. Such an interesting exploration of human nature. Definitely not your traditional scifi book which made it even better. Highly recommend it. The narration by Ray Porter was extraordinarily good as well.

Good SciFi, well worth a read.

An Excellent SciFi story carries through the whole trilogy.
Dennis Taylor explores the notion of virtual entities, created from humans, called “replicants”. He does this without getting into a philosophical morass, by just letting the “Bobs” get on with living through the adventures the galaxy throws at them. A little airy and light perhaps, but in this case, that optimism makes the trilogy a fun read.
Thank you Mr. Taylor for the good story.

so sad it's done

This was such a good book. The best way I'd describe it is...
Take a PC God game and turn it into a book.
I listened to all 3 books over 3 weeks. I couldn't stop.

simply the most satisfying read.
well done, thank you.

Excellent

Excellent and imaginative. a really interesting view of what the human mind is capable of if given time. And how politics, Religious views and fanaticism can easily destroy a civilization.

Satisfying End to a Fun Series

It took a while for this one to get going for me but by the end of it I felt completely satisfied. Taylor wraps up all the loose ends and gives fitting endings to all of the characters. In keeping with the other 2 books, this one kept the balance of humor, pop culture references, heartfelt moments, and action. Ray Porter continues to show why he is one of the best in the business. I look forward to his future works.

I hope that this is the ending. Not because I'm glad it is over but rather I would hate to see it be brought back and have the conclusion tainted. The subjective nature of the ending is something that my friends and I are continuing to discuss and that is what makes a great story.

Overall: 4.75/5

I wonder what could have been

I'm not a writer and don't pretend to be a critic. It's easy to see what occurs in multi-sequel books and movies, that it's just not easy to tie a grand scheme together time after time. This is sort of how I felt with the wrap up of this series. The first part was excellent, interesting and novel... a new twist to AI and space exploration. But as the story progressed, it got bogged down in personal politics and rushed storytelling. It's like the author came to a crossroad in book 2... to the left lead a path that would bring this series to epic proportions and galactic grandeur, while the right path lead to a quick and convenient end. You can sense the greatness of what could have been and, in finishing the story, I felt a sense of loss that it could have been more.

That is not to say it was not enjoyable. It was just too conveniently and quickly ended.

The narrator was good throughout the books and finished well here in book three.

It was worth the credit and I don't regret it, although I'll continue to wonder what could have been.

Eh??

I loved the first and second book. But this one seemed like the author just wanted to finish the book off and move on (felt rushed). Quick convenient conclusions of everything. Still enjoyable.. just not to par with the previous books.

Clean ending to a fantastic series

Note: Early readers need to redownload to get the complete book!!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. As with any series ending, you always wish there was more, and this book didn't feel as complete as the others, but was still a great read. The conflicts that arose were varied, and exposes the depths of humanity's desire for power and self interest. They were not as complex as in the previous two books, and the resolution came about a bit easy at times, but it didn't take away my enjoyment. Besides, we wanted to get to the battle with the Others anyway. Again, it was over a bit too quickly, but definitely gives you a sense of finality. The only minor sticking point is the Medeiros story line doesn't feel as complete. There are some real emotional highs and lows in this book I don't want to come close to spoiling. Overall a great end to a fantastic series.

Ray Porter's performance is amazing.

Do not read this book without finishing the previous two.

Compelling Narrative; Talented Performance

Bobiverse book 3 is sets a new standard in sci-fi storytelling awesomeness - things just get more interesting in the wake of crushing Delta Pavonus defeat. The foreboding 'Others' threat maintains a constant suspense you just keep wondering about. The storyline is filled with futuristic realism and compelling plot lines. Dennis Taylor masterfully progresses his grand-plan narrative into an ever culmination climax that leaves you begging for Book 4! Very well done! You'll be taken places you've never imagined possible.

Ray Porter skillfully narrates the complex Bobiverse cast of characters; His consistency of tone with each makes the audiobook very pleasing to listen to and highly believable. His highly talented performance will lead you from laughter to anxiety and everything in between. Thank you Ray for such a great performance; I highly look forward to the next installment!

A fun ending but maybe the other two were better.

Overall this is a really fun trilogy of stories that is far more believable than most other sci-fi stories. It's still quite out there however so much enjoyment. Unfortunately the third edition is a bit drawn out maybe. Still a very good story and a great audiobook. One of my favorites for sure.

If you got this far, you have a pretty good idea

This is the weakest of the Bobiverse books, but it's still good and if you finished the previous two you will of course want to find out what happens. My main complaint is the jumps between multiple plots with hugely different stakes. One plot might be concerned with the fate of an entire race, another they might be purely personal, and they play out at the same time, without either plot informing the other. It's a bit schizophrenic. But I still recommend the whole series, and Ray Porter's voice will always BE Bob to me.

Three times the price for a lame finish

I was very intrigued by the first two parts of the story, but the conclusion didn't do much but wrap up the story. There wasn't really any new or exciting developments worth the purchase of a third installment. The worst thing about this series is that each book is a credit and yet the entire story is really one book that's been stretched to fill three. I didn't care for this installment and fill deeply underwhelmed by it. It does well to wrap up the story it not in any interesting way.

Not the best of the trilogy

This got a bit too hung up on the pathos and sympathy with deaths and love etc. Relationships slowed the story but overall it completed the journey. It was worth listening to the two earlier books but I am glad it ended here. The performance was great and kept my interest.
