more than just a cozy read

what is commonly found in scifi is very fast paced action packed scenes. this is not that kind of book. becky chambers takes the time to slow down and really gets to know each character. and she asks the reader to trust that this is going to be fun fullfilling and entertaining. and it IS. is rosemary's story a bit convenient? sure, it is that. but she is the window through which we get to see the crew of the wayfarer and she works so well with that. it also made me ask a stupid but important question of myself, 'what makes me consider someone a person?' and LOVEY heckin LOVEY who made me ask that. a much loved book.

Best thing I've read in a long time

I used to be a huge reader but I haven't read a whole lot in years. I've been trying out a lot of books and this book is by far the best one I have read. It's not a difficult read, although there are a lot of components to the story it's written in a way that kept me from getting confused. There was just enough imagery for me to imagine what everything and everyone looked like without getting bogged down by the details. All the characters are so complex and engaging, they drive the plot without stifling it. Really, one of the best books I've ever read.

SciFi that doesn't get garbled - just genuinely likeable, diverse characters and adventures

I'm a slow reader. Like 2-3 chapters in an hour at top speed usually. And Science Fiction terms stick in my head sometimes, causing my brain to lag and try to process the weird names and terms for things making my reading even slower. So I was super surprised when I got over 240 pages read in the first 2 days of picking up this book. Finished it in one week! That's unheard of for me! I just got pulled in so easily and didn't want to put it down. Alien cultures and names, futuristic terms, but it's easy to follow and easy to get drawn in. It's a fun book that got me feeling all the feels and loving the crew of the Wayfarer. Looking forward to reading more books from the series now.

Incredible Character Driven Found Family

I loved this book. It feels like coming home. You grow to love the characters as they learn the love each other. I've been looking for stories with queer characters that isn't about being queer and this book is an incredible example of that.
