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 p...

All These Worlds Reviews
I loved this trilogy and highly recommend it in audio - Ray Porter does a great job with the many Bobs.
All These Worlds: The action-packed Bobiverse finale
Originally posted at Fantasy Literature
Dennis E. Taylor’s BOBIVERSE series has turned out to be a real winner, starting with We Are Legion (We Are Bob) in September 2016 and continuing with For We Are Many in May 2017. Usually I tend to read fairly serious, literary, and ambitious SFF books, but after going through not one, but two long episodes dealing with a debilitating herniated disc this year and being confined to lying on my back for week ...more
Can the unabashed geekiness of the first two Bobiverse books continue and deliver on their protagonists' mission to find new habitable worlds for humanity in the final book of the trilogy? Yes! I enjoyed Dennis Taylor's All These Worlds and felt it reached a satisfying conclusion (although if there was a Bobiverse #4, I wouldn't complain). For me, it took a little while to get going, but it hit its stride when it returned to issues of what it means to be human and whether that could change the w ...more
Excitement, closure, new adventures. A great ending to a great series.
From the first book in the Bobiverse, I had some qualms about the whole premise. I hadn't planned on reading anything past that book, but the ending had enough questions left unanswered that I persevered. I didn't find much more to like in the second book, but having come that far, I figured I should finish it out and read the third book. This is a long way of saying I wasn't expecting much out of All These Worlds.
The books have been easy to read, and are strangely compelling, despite that they ...more
So ... I guess this is it. Time to say goodbye. *sniffles* Though the author has promised he isn't done with the Bobiverse, the We-Are-Bob-cycle has come to an end with this third volume.
Again, we have different replicants of the original Bob in different corners of the universe (but by now, they all have or can have bodies thanks to ever improving designs for android bodies). Again, they are either on a discovery trip, trying to save what's left of humanity, or watching aliens species on their ...more
I can really appreciate the fact that the parts of this trilogy are being released so close to each other. Not even a year went by between the release of We Are Legion (We Are Bob) and All these Worlds. As a reader, I applaud this. I know it's not something every author can pull of, but respect to Dennis Taylor for this.
Also, the audiobook rendition is truly worth its money. Ray Porter really gives each Bob their own character and eventually I was able to recognize which specific POV I was liste ...more
All These Worlds was a very satisfying ending to the Bobiverse trilogy. It's going to be lonely without all the Bobs. I'll miss them!
I listened to this on audible and once again, Ray Porter was brilliant as he performed the many incarnations of "Bob". He managed to make them all unique.
This series of the Bobiverse was truly an original and very unique premise. I didn't think there could be any more surprises, but there were a couple more that had me shaking my head muttering WOWWW to myself.
