Description

Sunday Times best-selling author Becky Chambers returns to the Galactic Commons in the final instalment in her award-winning and critically acclaimed Wayfarers series.

With no water, no air and no native life, the planet Gora is unremarkable. The only thing it has going for it is a chance proximity to more popular worlds, making it a decent stopover for ships travelling between the wormholes that keep the Galactic Commons connected. If deep space is a highway, Gora is just your average truck stop.

One of the many establishments present is the Five-Hop One-Stop, a place where long-haul spacers can stretch their legs (if they have legs, that is) and pick up fuel, transit permits and assorted supplies. The Five-Hop is run by an enterprising alien and her occasionally helpful child, who both work hard to provide a little piece of home to everyone passing through.

When a freak technological failure halts traffic to and from Gora, three strangers are thrown together at the Five-Hop. Grounded and with nothing to do but wait, the trio - an exiled artist with an appointment to keep, a cargo runner at a personal crossroads and a mysterious individual doing her best to help those on the fringes - are compelled to confront where they've been, where they might go and what they might be to each other.

cozy

it can get a bit meandering, but it is a hopeful, warm, cozy and timely salve for the last 12 months.

Very Mixed Feelings

First off, I dont believe that this is Chambers' best work, but that could be down to the allegory and my general burnout regarding all things quarantine-related right now. Maybe I'll come back one day and love it, but I found it a slog to get through, which is rarely the case with this author's writing.

Secondly, the narrator is really over-acting here. Patricia Rodriguez does a fantastic job on the other entries in the saga, but with this one the delivery seems forced and saccharine during otherwise moving moments. It can be very distracting.

Those are my complaints, which, if neither puts you off, I still recommend you pick this up. Even being the weakest entry in the Wayfarers saga, there is a lot to love here, with the alien cultures taking the spotlight. The Galactic Commons is such a strange and interesting universe, and even with my reservations I enjoyed a lot of what this book has to offer.

Rating this 3 stars kinda feels bad, but I cant really justify more than that. Come for the world building, stick it out through the tougher parts and you'll probably enjoy it.

As boring as a users manual!

This book, along with book 2 & 3 in this series are not sci-fi novels, there is no story line, no plots, nothing! it's just anthology of alien lives, such as what they eat, what they wear, how they dance.
There first book is decent with a story and character development. However, this book to sci-fi is what 50 shades of Grey was to romantic novels, and I don't mean that as a complement!
