The novels of Becky Chambers

Y’all, I just finished both of Becky Chambers’ novels, The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet and A Closed and Common Orbit.

I will cut and paste the praise from her website:

“The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet is a joyous, optimistic space opera…Although it isn’t shy about tackling Big Questions, Planet is a heart-warming debut novel that will restore your faith in science fiction (specifically) and humanity (in general).”
Tor.com

“Her protagonists might not all be human, but they possess more humanity than most.”
Library Journal

“There’s no two ways around it: Becky Chambers’ debut novel is probably the most fun that you’ll have with a space opera novel this year.”
io9

ALL OF THAT IS TRUE. These book, these books are DELIGHTFUL. Optimistic. Well-structured. Excellent universe-building. Strong characters. Accessible writing.

If you need something hopeful and escapist, I cannot recommend Becky Chambers’ novels more highly.
