Lord of the Rings on a sugar high, in space! So much fun. Bonus musical accompaniment if you go to the url shown in the book. Happy to see there's a planned sequel.

An incredible journey through a post-apocalyptic war-torn landscape where the robots are both the protagonists and the antagonists in a scifi western action movie interwoven with philosophical/social/economical treatise. Loved all but the violence. Also includes: minor reflections on gender in robots, heavy themes of inhumanities originating in mankind, also inflicted on robotkind, then perpetrated by and on robots themselves.

Robotswithpersonality Truly imaginative speculation of a post-human world alongside a cautionary tale about how it got to be 'post-human'. 5d

When the book contains sentiment you've held close to your heart for years:

"AIN'T NO BETTER PLACE THAN THIS. Ain't no place in the world that can be better than being with that woman. HOW THE HELL IS IT SUPPOSED TO BE A BETTER GODDAMMED PLACE IF SHE AIN'T THERE?"

Come to think of it, vegans and artificial intelligence would have shared philosophy on this point. ?

"No thinking thing should be another thing's property..."

Not this AI outlining the greatest cockup of western civilization in two paragraphs. 🤦🏼‍♂️

Today on descriptions that scratched my brain just right:

"In its day, it must have gleamed like a diamond on the finger of an effervescent newlywed."

A comforting and fluffy story, that is also deep and touching. Becky Chambers is becoming an instant-buy author for me.
