We Are Legion (We Are Bob) by Dennis Taylor

A book for nerds written by a nerd.

Bob got rich selling his software company. But is killed crossing the street in Vegas.

Bob wakes up a century later to find that corpsicles have been declared to be without rights, and he is now the property of the state. He has been uploaded into computer hardware and is slated to be the controlling AI in an interstellar probe looking for habitable planets. …


He’s a human (sort of) Von Neumann probe.

This book is juvenile. It will appeal most to teenage geeks. But I enjoyed it thoroughly too. There are many interesting concepts.

The down-to-earth tone is somewhat similar to Old Man’s War and The Martian.

Check some GoodReads reviews.

The second book in the series is supposed to be even better. I’ve already downloaded it.
