In a word, "charming" is how I responded to this novella about the conflict between being for its own sake and whether one can live a life without a sense of meaningful purpose. If you've read and enjoyed Chambers' previous work you'll enjoy this. If you have not read Chambers before, this could well be a good place to start, as this story illustrates what she really does well; tell a good slice-of-life story which usually manages to work in the bigger implications.

This is one of those books that manages to do philosophy (eg what is my purpose) without all the preachiness. Its a rare accomplishment.

Sibling Dex is a tea monk, who is not quite satisfied with his life. As he goes further out into the wilderness he meets a sentient robot, who Dex always thought was a myth. The two go on an adventure, and Dex learns a few things.

But, where the book shines is the story, the plot is simple but it will stick with you. This a world where humans have found balance with the inhabitants in it. But where it really shines is how the story is written. Its simple, but complex. And it will stick long after you've read it. ( )

In a future that probably isn't ours, robots have gained sentience and have formally separated from humans to vanish into the wilderness. Our monk, searching for fulfilling meaning in their life and crickets, encounters a robot who has volunteered to learn what humanity needs centuries into the separation. The search for crickets seems mislaid, which was a discordant note in a set of explorations and interactions I found otherwise delightful. ( )

I’ve only read one book by Becky Chambers before - To be Taught, if Fortunate - which was interesting and contemplative, so I decided to pick this new story be her, also because I have really come to appreciate the novella format. And this was just…. something !!!!

I won’t by any means call this a perfect book, but it was utterly perfect for me. Just like her previous book, the writing in this is also very calm, quiet, soothing, requiring a bit of introspection from the reader and also thought provoking. It may not be everyone’s speed but this slice of life story is just right if you are in the mood for it. Bex is a character whom I related to so much, because of the way they felt about their life and their struggles felt so familiar. The way they try to be a good listener to everyone and help others feel a bit better through their words, but is ultimately unable to feel better themselves - it just hit me too hard and I couldn’t stop reading because I badly wanted to know how they would ultimately come to terms with their feelings. And then entered Mosscap, a robot, and I can’t tell you how fascinating it is to listen to a human created object essentially give a philosophical sermon about life to a monk. But these life lessons about the meaning of purpose, and if it is really essential for a human being to have purpose to feel fulfilled and lead a meaningful life - is a question that is explored thoughtfully and I really appreciated that, because it is something I’m always thinking about. There may not be complete answers to these questions, but there’s enough thoughts to ponder about.

In the end, I don’t know whom to recommend this book to because it feels too personal to me. But I guess like what the author says in the dedication, pick this book up if you need a break from life. And in these times full of anxieties, not just about the pandemic but so many other issues, this short novella might just provide you some respite. ( )
