This novel was exactly what I hoped it would be and more . . . Moving in what feels like small personal ways but is actually big, universal ways and it is uplifting on the same scale
Deeply moving... the sparky empathy of Chambers' writing [draws] you into these strange creatures' hearts and minds in a way that is never less than deeply involving.
An intensely powerful and multifaceted meditation on time, history, change, and memory, leavened with a welcome touch of humor . . . This is a superb work from one of the genre's rising stars.
A joyous, optimistic space opera... Although it isn't shy about tackling Big Questions, Planet is a heart-warming debut novel that will restore your faith in science fiction (specifically) and humanity (in general).
PRAISE FOR THE WAYFARERS:
Beautifully written and fascinating
Both fascinating and entertaining... Becky's portrayal of humanity is generous, kind and honest
Terrific. . . a masterly exploration of characterisation and diversity wrapped in intensity, heartbreak and tension
Richly human, believable [and] compelling . . . underlain with a deep compassion and a feeling for community
A quietly profound, humane tour de force'
Checks all the boxes . . . driven by well-drawn, likable, and diverse characters in a complex future world.

An emotional, moving look at what it means to be human, and the importance of heritage and legacy
PRAISE FOR RECORD OF A SPACEBORN FEW:
The best speculative fiction currently being written . . . Becky Chambers is a wonder, and I feel better for having her books in my life
