All These Worlds: Bobiverse, Book 3 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
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.
All These Worlds is the third installment in the blockbuster Audible Original Bobiverse series - which has sold more than one million copies.

Some great ideas and concepts
A bit of humour and pop references had me laughing out aloud
Humour helped break the more intense parts of the story
Thought provoking, love, friendship, death, mortality, immortality and the Fermi paradox.
I think this book suits all audiences

This flip flopping between emotion and logic ruling at times makes each 'Bob' feel more human, while making me want to flip their quantum cube and scream at them for being so stupid.
Two key decisions really spoiled the character for me as portrayed to be this ultimate project manager type, well versed in efficiency and diplomacy.
1. After FTL communications... they were still installing 'Bob's directly on to combat ships. Despite the number of times this led to a Bob dying. This seemed ridiculously wasteful as well as unnecessarily dangerous. Modern warfare already involves people using telepresence to fly combat drones. With FTL comms, this is no longer necessary.
2. Wanton and unnecessary destruction. There comes a point where they find the ridiculous value in hijacking a spaceship. So vapourising everything after committing genocide (and they did this multiple times through the books) felt both wasteful and completely counter to their project manager persona. While reacting to obliterating an entire solar system with a 'Yeeeehaw! Aint that gonna befuddle some minds lawl" felt at odds with the minor guilt at having committed genocide.
But this aside. A gripping end to the trilogy. It can get overly reductive, but that only adds to the feeling of entering the mind of a quasi-god figure realising they're a quasi-god.
What a marvellous fun romp? I just loved it. It’s a great story and a superb adventure. I enjoyed all the Nerdy cultural references and only had to check a couple. Fun characters being set impossible tasks and figuring stuff out for themselves. All in all, a wonderful trilogy.
Is replicant a person or a tool to be used to serve? If they are not a tool as shown by the Bobs, can they be trusted to make decisions on the future of humanity? When does religion stop evolution and encourages paranoia to the extent that they spiral into a planet wide war resulting in wiping out the majority of the planet's population. Should religion be allowed to grow?
I don't often write reviews but I have not enjoyed a series of books as much in quite sometime.
