Centuries after the last humans left Earth, the Exodus Fleet is a living relic, a place many are from but few outsiders have seen. Humanity has finally been accepted into the galactic community, but while this has opened doors for many, those who have not yet left for alien cities fear that their carefully cultivated way of life is under threat.

I absolutely loved the development of Exodan culture and I want to be best friends with all of the characters. A plot twist around the middle of the book shook me up a little bit in a way that other books in this series mostly haven't done, but it was so important for the rest of the storyline and the development of the other characters. Becky Chambers is one of the best authors out there, no doubt about it.

I liked it! After finishing the trilogy-so-far, I think the first book is my favorite (the second was my favorite for a lil bit, but the first one has been growing on me over time). That's not to say this one wasn't great! It's a real cool look at communities trying to preserve their identity and struggling with the loss of identity as they join a larger community. I'm actually real inspired to try and explore this kind of thing in a game project. I love a cozy lil community and the cozy lil community sized problems that come with it. Nothing is overwhelmingly a threat to their survival, but all the problems are about communication, selfhood, individuality, and meaning.

Then the next book appears and you eagerly want to continue exploring the world you left behind, but now it's a different corner of the galaxy, and different characters. At first you trudge on, disappointed, but then you start to fall for those people and their stories, too. And then the book ends and-



"Record of a Spaceborn Few" is the third "Wayfarers" book only by name. Like "A Close and Common Orbit" it only has a very loose tie to the predecessor and the "Wayfarer" crew only appears in mentions. But that quickly becomes unimportant, as the new setting - here the human Exodus Fleet - and the …
