This feels like something Martha Wells wrote to entertain herself and I really enjoyed it. It's a novella and quite short and I want sequels.
It's told from the point of view of an android who refers to themself as Murderbot. They have hacked their operating system and are largely autonomous. More interested in the next episode of a soap than the tedious goings-on around them they are determined to survive. When everything goes wrong on a survey it's up to the Murderbot to save the humans.
It was funny, wry and interesting and I really enjoyed it and then passed it on to my husband who is reading it with glee too.
