  • Good modern sci-fi

    Thoughtful and quick sci-fi read about humanity's place in the universe and within life in general. Overall it was a pretty entertaining read about the ethics and hardships dealt with on space explortion while trying to remain within current understandings of what spaceflight might be possible. Characterisation I feel was a bit lacking, which knocked off star for me. Definitely worth checking out both as a love note to space exploration in general and its implications for humanity

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Fun scifi story on first encounter of alien life.

    This a realistically told scifi story in the vein of The Martian, but without the survivalist part, and much further in the future. It envisions what it might be like for astronauts to encounter alien life on other planets in the realistic manner of a scientific exploration. This was done very well and I enjoyed it immensely. I liked the characters, but I had a hard time believing that they got along so swimmingly. I prefer a little more tension among characters in a novel, although I understand that they would've been chosen for the job based on their ability to get along. I also didn't get a sense of any fear they might have felt being so isolated at such a great distance from earth. All in all, this is another enjoyable book from Becky Chambers that I recommend for hard scifi fans.

    Thanks for your feedback!
