Like all the books in the Wayfarers series, this book has a rich setting and wonderful characters. I love the thoughtfully-designed multi-species civilization and how all the characters interact with their own cultures and each other. The protagonists were all really interesting, and I was happy with the endings they got. ( )

So enjoyable. As with all this series nothing much actually happens and yet it's like sinking into a warm comfortable bath - relaxing and enjoyable and easy. After some of the chunksters I've been ploughing my way through recently, this was short and relatively undemanding. ( )

Well, my space-faring friends, Becky has done it again. The Galaxy, and the Ground Within marks the final, standalone instalment in her Wayfarers series, and it is just so damn lovely.

TGatGW is essentially a lockdown situation – with which we are all now painfully familiar – but with several sentient species, all stuck in the same planetary habitat and suddenly having to figure each other out. This happens on the commuter planet of Gora, where travellers layover while waiting to go through one of the nearby wormholes and travel to another, more exciting place. A low-orbit accident leads to the destruction of Gora’s satellite network, forcing all ships to be grounded. The ensuing story is essentially an answer to the age-old question, “what do you get when an Auleon, Quelin and Akarak get stranded in a Laru-owned Five-Hop One-stop”? And the answer is not a punchline, but heckin’ FEELS.

TGatGW is the first Chambers novel where none of the main characters are human, but I didn’t even pick up on this until after I’d put the book down; there’s more humanity to be found in this story about strange, sentient species than in most books about humanity. The author does what she does best, and deep dives into the cultures and social structure of disparate sentient species; from gender to politics, life expectancy to eating habits (including a particularly hilarious section where the protagonists are horrified by the concept of humans eating cheese).

That’s a pretty quick summary, but it effectively sums up this book which is relatively light on plot. But, learning about each species and seeing them overcome their differences is the point of the story, and it’s cathartic AF.

I’d recommend this book if you want to spend more time making some alien friends and less time shooting at them. TGatGW is a rare opportunity to explore the mundane yet fascinating details that are often overlooked in sci-fi. And, you’ll finish the book reassured that while the universe is oh so big and scary, it’s also a beautiful thing. ( )

An exploration rather than an adventure as 3 space faring people of different species are trapped on planetary way station with a hostess of a forth species and her adolescent offspring. The exploration is both among the species alien to each other and internal to each the individual though not at all evenly spread. In fact it is Pei on whom the stop over will have the most effect though others of the 5 face some trauma. Family and society are what it's about and what's common and unique across barriers. ( )

The last book in the series... sigh. I will read this series again, definitely. And I can't wait for the next project Chambers promises is in the works. There's something about how Becky Chambers uses sci-fi to show us ways to think about how we could live now. This book got into colonialism, how to be truly welcoming, and how to have hard conversations across differences. The plot is a "group of disparate people stuck together form bonds" but done in true Chambers fashion, and this time we get to really meet the Laru! Can't go into more details (too many spoilers). Do read this series in order though. ( )
