A Psalm for the Wild-Built
A Psalm for the Wild-Built | Becky Chambers
Hugo Award-winner Becky Chambers's delightful new 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? At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Beautiful, thoughtful, soul soothing. A sci-fi/philosophy/nature/buddy road trip novella that offers an opportunity to slow down and take a breath. I just pre-ordered Prayer for the Crown Shy from my local bookstore.

@monalyisha - this one paired nicely coming off of World of Wonders. The deep love and awe and just notice given to the natural world. #NYWD22 #NewYearWhoDis

monalyisha It‘s my favorite little literary niche. 🍃 This was probably my favorite book of the year. Now we can wait for the next one together! ⏳ 2w

TheKidUpstairs @monalyisha I love it. I think our buddy read for Feb (if you're still up for it!) will fit into that niche, too 2w

You know when you just pick up the right book at the right time? We're back in semi-lockdown, virtual schooling, uncertainty and stress. This book is a balm for the soul. In reading it a lot slower than normal, because there's just not a lot of time in my days this week, but those little escapes are so soothing. I meant to read this when it first came out, and for some reason never picked it up. Maybe it was a sign, it was telling me to wait 👇

TheKidUpstairs @monalyisha I'm so excited for this one. Trying not to overhype myself, but her Long Way to a Small Angry Planet is one of my all time favourites, so I'm pumped to see her beautiful vision build another world. 2w
monalyisha @TheKidUpstairs I know some people felt it was too short & surface-level, so I suppose that‘s a danger…but I tend to love novella-length texts & thought it was perfect. 2w
TheKidUpstairs @monalyisha I love novellas too. I read some great ones last year (I think a couple made it into my list). Just that beautiful, short, succinct slice of a world, no room for excess. 2w
monalyisha @TheKidUpstairs YES. This bodes well. Enjoy! 💞 2w

My #12thBookOf2021 for #December is this powerfully told little charmer of a novella from the queen of sentimental SciFi. A metaphorical tale of what exactly is life, told through the wanderings of a disenchanted Tea Monk searching for his purpose, & a wild-built sentient robot on the same journey. It was sweet, it was kind & as all her books do, it makes you think. Cannot wait for more! #12BooksOf2021

My husband was going to gift me books for Christmas, but decided that the time spent browsing quietly, alone, in a bookstore would be a wonderful bonus (he knows me so well). So I spent some time this morning wandering through my favourite spot. Picked up two off of @monalyisha 's #NewYearWhoDis list, Dave to finish in print (I'll never get through the audio before OverDrive takes it back), and one impulse "oooh, that sounds good" pick.

"Do you call yourself robots or something else?"
"Robot is correct."
"Okay, well-it's kid stories, mostly. Sometimes, you hear somebody say they saw a robot in the borderlands, but I always thought it was bullshit. I know you're out there, but it's like... it's like saying you saw a ghost."

"We're not ghosts or bullshit," the robot said simply.

This is an amazing book! It makes it into my top 5 for sure. I definitely need to read more by this author. I loved the world building, and the non-binary representation. Such a great look at the question of purpose and humanity. And given the main character is a tea monk it made me crave a good cuppa. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Thank you for the excuse to buy the tagged if I don't get it for Xmas 🤣 World of Wonders and Here for It weren't on my radar, but sound like beautifully hopeful reads to start the year. Liar's Dictionary is compared to some of my faves, so I'm all in. The Ogawa and Acevedo were both on my TBR so I'll try to get to those as well (if not in January, sometime in 2022!) and so many more. Bring on the new year!

A sweet novella set in a near future where humans are building a more sustainable, spiritual way of living on the earth following some kind of unmentioned upheaval. Oh and sentient robots who live like nomads in the bush.
As someone else said this is a hug of a book. Sometimes I found the invented gods and spirituality a little twee but it was so well intentioned it didn‘t matter.

This short novella was kind of like reading a hug! Dex is a tea monk who goes from town to town giving tea to people who just need a moment to step away from life and let go of emotions. Dex has been doing this for awhile and now need a break themselves so decided to go into the wild where the robots are! Robots are sentient and now one wants to see the world of humans. The characters are delightful, the story sweet and emotional. I loved it!

This wasn‘t quite the large, warm, cozy cup of tea I was expecting, but it was still pretty lovely reading. A journey, the meeting of unexpected individuals, solitude versus community… and I really liked the commentary on the expectations we put on ourselves to have deep meaning in life and reach our potential as opposed to just being. A book to revisit. October #Bookspin complete.

I love Becky Chambers, but I expect more of an adventure, an exciting story with the warm loving characters she creates. This book is really a fable about what is the meaning of life and what makes us human but there is no excitement or adventure. The two characters are warm and cute but not enough to save the book for me.

RamsFan1963 I'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't love this. If it had been longer, the characters developed more, then I might have given it a pick. 3mo

My most anticipated moment of #Deweys24HourReadathon was going to be starting this one while drinking tea at the bookstore. Alas, the town was taken over by witches. Literally. For the Witch on the Town event. Witches everywhere, including the bookstore. So instead, I get tea and read in the coziness of my apartment, while listening to witches cackle outside.

Listened to this novella.

A very interesting, optimistic story.

I liked how much more human the robot felt and how 'robot' the human felt at times.

I will reread this; also because of ⬇️

julesG I would have loved to really immerse myself into the story, but I had trouble with the #audiobook's narration. There were phrases and sometimes whole sentences spliced into the story - probably because the original recording was wonky. My ears picked up on the (not so) subtle (to me) changes in the voice and it always felt like a different person read those pieces. Pulled me out of the story every time it happened. And it happened a lot. 3mo
Lindy I‘ve had that happen with audio narration too, where it‘s obvious that corrections were spliced in, taking me out of the story. It‘s sloppy production and unfortunate for listeners. 3mo

My second and last book for Sci-Fi September #RoaringWolf. At under 150 pages, this novella fits the category “Warp Speed” (Read in one day).

This was a sweet, gentle story about a human “tea monk” and a robot. I miss the marvelous alien worlds of the author‘s Wayfarer series, but I did enjoy Sibling Dex‘ journey of enlightenment through their encounter with the robot Mosscap. It was replete with Chambers‘ typical positivity and optimism. ❤️

Also: tea monk. I mean, how can you go wrong there?

An incredibly fun & creative read with lyrical, beautiful writing & allegory. Fabulous characters with great inclusion via nonbinary protagonists. Dex & Mosscap are a delight & their interactions are sweet & endearing. The banter is witty & honest & at times hilarious. The gentle way they considered one another's feelings & tried to understand things from the other's point-of-view just warmed my heart. A fantastic read. I'm excited for the sequel.

Definitely NOT in my wheelhouse but I thought I‘d try it out since it‘s so slim. I ended up really enjoying this cozy little fable. Seems like a grown up fairy tale for the modern age. The robots are wilding themselves, away from humankind. There are tea monks!?! And life is pondered, and a journey of sorts takes place enhancing the friendship of Dex (said monk) and their new robot friend, Mosscap. Simply adorable. Meaning of life stuff here!
