A Closed and Common Orbit (Wayfarers, #2) by Becky Chambers · Book review

⇠ View all reviews

I was expecting a continuation from the first Wayfarers book but this can almost be read as a standalone.

A ship AI struggles with finding her identity and sense of purpose after being placed (illegally) in a human-like body. At the same time we follow the story of a genetically modified girl, Jane 23, destined to spend her life working in a factory, who escapes and has to figure out how to live in the outside world.

Even though it tackles some heavy subjects, it's just such a cozy, comfy sci-fi thanks to the relationships the different aliens and AIs build with each other.
