's review

it was amazing

Loved, loved, loved this. Almost as much as A Long Way... I recommend revisiting the last couple of chapters of A Long Way to remind yourself about what happened with Lovey / Lovelace, if it's been a while. It is a mainly freestanding book, and it's lovely. Becky chambers writes about people who are just trying to do their best in a difficult universe - creating things, making chosen families and getting on with it.
I found the messaging about changing gender with the assistance of implants a tiny bit preachy, and there are other flaws in this book, but they are overwhelmed by the quality of this book. Sometimes when I'm at 80 % of a novel I think "phew, nearly there". with this book I thought "noooooooooo". So good.
