"In A Psalm for the Wild-Built, Hugo Award-winner Becky Chambers's delightful new Monk & Robot series gives us hope for the future. It's been centuries since the robots of Panga gained self-awareness and laid down their tools; centuries since they wandered, en masse, into the wilderness, never to be seen again; centuries since they faded into myth and urban legend. One day, the life of a tea monk is upended by the arrival of a robot, there to honor the old promise of checking in. The robot cannot go back until the question of "what do people need?" is answered. But the answer to that question depends on who you ask, and how. They're going to need to ask it a lot. Becky Chambers's new series asks: in a world where people have what they want, does having more matter?"--… (mais)

3.5 Interesting, but I miss the Wayfarers series. ( )

An excellent book where two characters discuss philosophy. The first half is simply written and sets up the context. The second half is beautifully written dialogue, with many though-provoking ideas. ( )

“Sometimes, a person reaches a point in their life when it becomes absolutely essential to get the fuck out of the city.”

This cozy sci-fi novella was our BookClub Read for June. Written by American author Becky Chambers it has won many awards including the Hugo Award for Best Novella and was a nominee for the Nebula Award. The dedication reads, “For anybody who could use a break.” It is definitely a warm and comforting read much like the mugs of tea which feature heavily.

Set in a utopian world, Pangia, after the factory age has ended, the robots have become sentient and left for the wilderness, and the humans have redesigned their world to incorporate biodegradable housing, spirituality and time for lengthy tea-breaks. Sibling Dex is a non-binary Tea Monk who serves tea and spiritual encouragement from a mobile bicycle-home. Despite the utopian perfection of life Dex becomes discontent and sets off into the wilderness in search of crickets. Dex meets a robot Splendid Speckled Mosscap who is on a mission to find out what humans want and how they are faring. The two embark on a journey and a conversation about life. Dex asks, “Something is missing. Something is off. So, how fucking spoiled am I, then? How fucking broken? What is wrong with me that I can have everything I could ever want and have ever asked for and still wake up in the morning feeling like every day is a slog?” The robot replies, “You keep asking why your work is not enough, and I don’t know how to answer that, because it is enough to exist in the world and marvel at it. You don’t need to justify that, or earn it. You are allowed to just live. That is all most animals do.”

This was a short, heart-warming story that reminds us it is OK to just be, and appreciate nature around us, rather than needing to serve an important purpose in life. I enjoyed the journey, I just wondered what happened to the crickets Dex set out to find? 4.5 stars for me. ( )

Becky Chambers, sabes escribir lo que necesito leer siempre. Esta pequeña novela es una taza de té caliente en un dia frio. Es un abrazo y una conversación de las que a veces te cambian la vida.

Chambers escribe un espejo al que mirarnos, una imagen de lo que podríamos ser o a donde podríamos llegar a traves del filtro del optimismo y la esperanza. No es una alerta como otras novelas, sino un canto a lo bueno de la humanidad.

Ojalá su mundo pueda ser posible. ( )

A Psalm for the Wild-Built is such a cozy sci-fi story that has all the right vibes. It's the kind of book I finish and contemplate life afterwards.

Not only did I love the coziness of it, but I loved the exploration of purpose and desire, and how they interact with and shape our needs. It's refreshing and like a hug to the soul. ( )

A Psalm for the Wild-Built begins a series that looks optimistic and hopeful, pursuing stories that arise from abundance instead of scarcity, kindness instead of cruelty.

"Many small creatures have wonderful intelligences. Very different from yours or mine, of course, but just wonderful. Sophisticated, in their own way." (p. 74)
Despite these blessings, sometimes Dex could not sleep. In those hours, they frequently asked themself what it was they were doing. They never truly felt like they got a handle on that. They kept doing it all the same. (p. 24)
And yet, if they were completely honest, the thing they had come to look forward to most was not the smiles nor the igfts nor the sense of work done well, but the part that came after all of that. The part when they returned to their wagon, shut themself insdie, and spent a few precious, shapeless hours entirely alone. (p. 39)
What is wrong with me that I can have everything I could ever want and have ever asked for and still wake up in the morning feeling like every day is a slog? (Dex, p. 120)
Dex offered an open palm, and Mosscap took it. The robot's hand was so much bigger, but the two fit together all the same. (p. 122)
