A Closed and Common Orbit – Becky Chambers

5 Stars

Absolutely excellent. Loosely tied to A Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet (set after, one major spoiler), A Closed and Common Orbit follows characters that were side characters in the first novel as they continue their lives without the members of the Wayfarer’s crew.

We follow these characters as they navigate what it means to be a person and adapting to the rules of a complex and multi-species society.

Chambers once again demonstrates a deep level of thought and care in the development of her characters and species, especially in their genders and how characters relate to each other. I am impressed.

Read this book for a fun and engaging story that also chews on tough moral and ethical questions.

A Closed and Common Orbit is the second book in the Wayfarers series.
