    * I was sent this from the publisher in exchange for an honest review * "From the ground, we stand. From our ships, we live. By the stars, we hope..." This book isn't quite a direct sequel to the events of The Long Way To A Small Angry Planet, but it does start at the same time as the events in tLWtaSAP are finishing up. We follow a host of entirely new host of characters, all of whom are connected to, or interested in, the Exodus Fleet. One of t...

    This early review is brought to you by fate and amazing luck! I work in a book store, and we were sent a proof for whoever might want to read it, and it had been tossed on the staff table. When, during a break, I glimpsed the title on the spine, half hidden under a stack of papers and other proofs, I shrieked, making everyone jump a bit out of their chairs, and dived for it. So hey, this is a proof review, but I didn't promise anyone an honest re...

    Well it's not The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet and it's not A Closed and Common Orbit but it is every bit as splendid and fantastic as both of these books but in it's own special way. I think the Ms Chambers is very clever not writing direct sequels as it makes it impossible to compare one to the other as each is so different. I started it, much like the last one, wishing I was back with the crew of book one but pretty soon became immersed i...

    I am not sure where I should even start here. What a book. Becky Chambers pulled us in with Long Way To A Small Angry Planet. We fell in love with those characters, the book was incredible. I know we all felt a pang of disappointment when we realised the following books were not going to be direct sequels. I want to go back to the Wayfarers, I do, really badly, but right now, I'm glad I haven't.Becky is so talented at writing books that have the ...
  • Joshua (Bookseller, Waterstones Hull)
    Bookseller at Waterstones, Hull: early review, essentially spoiler free (for the most part).With Record of a Spaceborn Few, Chambers has returned to her ever growing universe to tell another very grounded and emotional set of stories all revolving around the lives,loves and tribulations of a group of individuals from and within the Exodean Fleet. Right from the off, can I say how refreshing it is to read a sci-fi series that has a much slower and...

    Becky Chambers is fast becoming one of my all time favourite sci-fi authors. In Record of a Spaceborn Few she once again delves deep into the socio-political dynamics of a human race struggling to define its place and purpose in a universe where it finds itself not only not-alone, but surrounded by other species which are vastly more ancient, established and technologically advanced. Chambers imagines a future in which our descendants' departure ...

    Arguably the book I’ve been most excited about this year and very pleased to have been given an e-proof to gush over. Initially it took a while for me to remember all the new characters but once I finally got over that, the best thing about this book (and the series) is how the universe is ever expanding. Not knowing what to expect with a series is terribly freeing and I hope this style continues for many books to come.
  • Fred Langridge
    Another absolutely lovely SF book in the same universe as Long Way To A Small, Angry Planet and A Closed And Common Orbit. Full of just-incidental queer representation and different models of people (including non-human people) interacting with each other.
  • Reece Dinn
    I absolutely love Becky Chambers' work and her third book may be her most moving yet. I really liked the overriding message of the book, of respecting cultural differences, and what 'home'/where you're from means to a person. This is a special book by a special author
  • Catherine S
    Absolutely glorious. (From an advance proof)
  • Jenn
    I'll come back to review a bit later when I'm not happy-sobbing at that perfect ending.
