**Winner of the 2017 Prix Julia-Verlanger**

The stand-alone sequel to the award-winning The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet

Lovelace was once merely a ship's artificial intelligence. When she wakes up in an new body, following a total system shut-down and reboot, she has to start over in a synthetic body, in a world where her kind are illegal. She's never felt so alone.

But she's not alone, not really. Pepper, one of the engineers who risked life and limb to reinstall Lovelace, is determined to help her adjust to her new world. Because Pepper knows a thing or two about starting over.

Together, Pepper and Lovey will discover that, huge as the galaxy may be, it's anything but empty.

Ein sehr gut geschriebenes Buch mit wunderbaren Charaktern

Die Wayfarers Trilogie (wobei es lässt sich diskutieren, ob man die drei Bücher streng genommen als Trilogie bezeichnen darf) wird zu einer meinen Lieblingstrilogien. Ich bin zum zweiten Mal beeindruckt vom Chambers Schreibstil und von der Fantasie und Liebe, mit denen sie diese Bücher geschrieben hat. Zwar bleibt die erste Band meine Lieblingsband, aber die zweite lässt sehr wenig zu wünschen. Ich freue mich auf die dritte.

I don't mind that in particular, I enjoyed it in fact, but A Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet at least had an overall arc throughout the book and this one just hasn't. The pace was, moreover, a bit too slow for my liking and then the end wrapped up too nicely and fast. The characters are the heart of the story, though, and I loved them dearly. Becky Chambers is a pro in characterization. Looking forward to more novels set in this world!

An sich gut, aber The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet war besser

This is a stand-alone sequel to The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet, but it's best to have read the latter to have a better understanding of what's going on in this second book, or rather, how Lovelace aka Lovey (aka Sidra) is trying to lead an independent life, as a human(oid). In this new story we follow two story-lines (through alternating chapters): Lovey's (sorry, Sidra's, as she had to pick a new name, something that wouldn't arouse suspicion in the world she would be living in) and Pepper's (formerly known as Jane - strangely enough, Chambers didn't mention how Jane became Pepper, or I must have overlooked that part). One final thing about Sidra's and Jane's lives: Both go from a very structured environment, without too many external influences, and where they doesn't have to think for themselves, to an environment with a plethora of external influences and boundaries. They have to make their own decisions, based on the incoming information and experiences. And of course, both experience(d) severe adaptation problems. That's what makes this book interesting: the philosophical (and psychological) elements weaved throughout the story. The world is still populate by different species, who have to share the same space and get along. Each has his/her differences. But we still haven't learned to create a world that's right for everyone. Also, each has a purpose: by having a job (doctor, construction worker, mechanic, administrator, manager, artist [music, drawing, ...], etc.), for example. Or being part of a NGO or other organisations (voluntarily or paid). Or through one's hobbies. So, with that - the thought behind the story (as it was for the first book) - in mind, it's a good story. If I don't take the deeper layer into account, I have to admit that I found this story less attractive than the first book. There were some parts that just didn't speak to me, didn't appeal to me.
