The 2nd in the Wayfarers series has often been recommended and I am glad I finally gave it the attention it deserved.
Two separate storylines alternate throughout: Pepper‘s origin story as well as Sidra‘s struggles with her new life.
And while I admit at first I dipped in and out, powering through the last half in one go paid off.
Holy smokes the ending is beautiful and perfect and everything reading should be - it brought tears to my eyes 💕

Ruthiella Yeah. This one made me cry too! ❤️ 1mo

I have abandoned everything I was supposed to do today in order to finish this book. It was totally worth it.
Becky Chambers is fast becoming a must read author for me. I very much enjoyed this tale of purpose, belonging and family.

I was almost late to work this morning because I didn‘t want to stop reading—I wanted to finish this book!

I adore the characters, and I adore the world. I love how much of this book was about who counts as a person and how to get others to recognize it.

I am loving this series! It is very rare for me to read more than one book in a series anymore and I have already reserved book 3!
I enjoyed 1more than this one, I think the broader look was better for me, and all adults, in this one we spent a lot of time with young Jane and it wasn't as interesting for me. But I love the world Chambers has built and the adult stories and struggles.
Her different species are so interesting &I ❤️ imagining them.

Basically everyone tells me this is their favourite Wayfarers book, if not their favourite book full stop. I expected to adore it. Instead, I liked the beginning, appreciated Sidra‘s disassociation from the kit, and kinda lost interest in the rest. I wasn‘t invested in either storyline, I had no strong feelings for the characters, and the worldbuilding couldn‘t carry me.

I‘m a TOTAL outlier here, though. You should still try it out.

TheKidUpstairs I liked it, but Small Angry Planet will always be my fave 8mo
xicanti @TheKidUpstairs I loved the hell out of that one; another reason I‘m disappointed this didn‘t land for me. 😔 8mo
peanutnine I eventually enjoyed this one, but it took me a while to come to terms with Sidra's new life and empathize with her character. Definitely a different tone from Small Angry Planet that I missed 8mo
See All 13 Comments
tenar I had the same experience; by the end of this one I had come around to liking it, but not at all to the level I had enjoyed the first book! 8mo
xicanti @peanutnine intellectually, I could see how I should‘ve gotten wrapped up in Sidra‘s adjustments and in how Pepper‘s backstory complimented them, but I just couldn‘t seem to make that emotional leap for longer than a scene or two. Sadness. 8mo
xicanti @tenar I found the only bit I was really invested in was whether Pepper and Owl came back together, so I jumped to the last chapter and got my answer! 8mo
tenar @xicanti That‘s the way to read! 👏🏻 I want to spend less time ‘pushing through‘ books, so I can spend more time loving books. Do you think you‘ll read book 3? I never did, but I do wonder about it. I went on to her novellas instead. 8mo
xicanti @tenar I‘m not sure yet about book 3. I‘ll definitely try her novellas at some point, though, since they‘re a much smaller time commitment. 8mo
shanaqui I love this one for personal reasons -- Sidra's exploration of her connection to the body kit and her journey to try and come to terms with it hits pretty close to home. But it's quite different to the first book, and honestly it's the first book I reach for when I want a comfort read! 8mo
Larkken It is definitely a very different book than the others! I think I liked it better, if only bc the plot and world felt more original, and I think I prefer a less ensemble cast. The last two are very different again! Chambers def doesn‘t require much buyin to start reading, for whatever that is worth. 8mo
xicanti @shanaqui @Larkken I‘m glad it means so much to so many people. 8mo
shanaqui @xicanti Ack, and my content there meant to say the first book is the one I reach for as comfort reading (i.e. I prefer it in some ways for sure). Not intended as a "you should like the second book cause I say so!" 8mo
xicanti @shanaqui don‘t worry—I read your comment the way you intended! 8mo

I had A CLOSED AND COMMON ORBIT on suspended hold for about two years because it was never the right time for it. Now I‘ve taken the plunge.

—and I like it a lot as of page 100, but I‘m not desperately in love with it the way all my friends are. 😔 Here‘s hoping I soon hit that magic CLICK moment that takes me from, “This is nice” to, “THIS IS MY ENTIRE WORLD OMG.”

AlaMich I didn‘t love it either. I thought it was just ok. 8mo
xicanti @AlaMich good to know I‘m not alone, if that‘s how it pans out for me! I always feel like such a weirdo when I don‘t fall in love with the stuff my friends gush about. 8mo
AlaMich @xicanti It felt like it was trying too hard somehow. 8mo

I've got to read Cibola Burn and Ancillary Justice in a hurry for #BookSpinBingo, but I think I'll make it at the rate I'm reading right now. I started and finished A Closed and Common Orbit yesterday.

This time I only cried right at the end, but it's still such a special book to me -- I relate a lot to Sidra's issues of embodiment.

I liked the plot of this book better than the first in the series, though I missed some of the characters from the first book. This one focused mainly on two characters instead of five or six, so it was much easier to follow what everyone was up to throughout the story.

Book 2 in the wayfarers series- I‘m so glad I was on holiday and could just park up with this one for a couple of days. I LOVED it. I especially enjoyed the dual time periods and getting to follow Pepper as a child. Becky chambers books really reframe how I think about what humanity could become. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Becky Chambers writes amazing characters! I was worried I wouldn‘t enjoy this book because we don‘t continue with all the characters I loved in A long to a Small angry planet but boy was I wrong! Pepper, Sidra, Blue, Tak and Owl were just as enjoyable. Im looking forward to reading the next book with more new characters. #TeamSlaughter #scarathlon2021 5pts

At first I was a little disappointed that we weren't hanging out with the Wayfarer crew, but I did really enjoy learning Pepper's backstory and seeing Lovelace adjust to her new life. The back and forth between two time lines was done really well and highlighted a lot of common themes between the two characters. It was interesting to think about the moral implications of AI and how much autonomy they deserve.

July books 5 and 6:
I really liked the first book in Chambers‘ Wayfarers series, so I tore through the next two. I really enjoyed the second (tagged) about an AI deciding what it was to be human, and the backstory of one of her new friends, but the more I think about it, the more I am ambivalent at best about book 3. If bk 1 is Firefly, no 3 is TNG… but more star-eyed and naive. Guess it didn‘t speak to me.

I decided that I needed to read through the entire series again now that the fourth book is out, and it is the best decision possible!

I adore this book as much as I did the first time. Pepper and Blue, Tak and Sidra... Stars they were stunning characters, I loved them all so much. It didn't tear my heart out the way the first book did, but it sure as hell helped to put it back together.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to read the next one!

Oh, this book was FUN! This story begins just after the final events of ‘The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet‘, but the story follows Pepper and Lovelace rather than the Wayfarers crew.
Becky Chambers must have an unlimited, boundless imagination. I am in awe of the world she has created.
Such superb world building, but the characters are what make this book amazing. Pepper‘s story was totally captivating.

Once I realized this wasn‘t a direct sequel to Angry Planet, I gave myself time to adjust before reading this one. This book was great. I loved Pepper and Sidra. I really loved learning Pepper‘s history. There was a lot of love, friendship, learning about yourself, struggle and strength.

I love Becky Chambers. Now to read her new novella.

I really enjoyed this one, even more than the first in the Wayfarers world. My one gripe with the narration is nitpicky, but it was very jarring: when a character‘s pronouns were xe/xyr (a gender-neutral neopronoun), the narrator over-emphasized it: rather than, “I don‘t know where she went,” she would say, “I don‘t know where XE went.” Every. Single. Time. Not a dealbreaker, but some work on mental normalization is needed yet.

Those disappointed to learn the sequel to The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet doesn‘t star the crew of the Wayfarer won‘t be disappointed long. I think I fell even more deeply in love with Pepper and Lovelace in this standalone novel. Becky Chambers‘ optimistic form of sci-fi is the ultimate in self-care reading, and Rachel Dulude is the perfect narrator. I can‘t wait for the next!
