Description

Like its predecessor A Psalm for the Wild-Built, the strengths of A Prayer for the Crown-Shy lie in its philosophical musings.

A Prayer for the Crown-Shy mostly lives up to the hype, and you should definitely check it out if you’re already read the first book in the Monk and Robot series. The robots left the factories and walked out into the wilderness to stop humankind from imploding but made the ‘Parting Promise’ as they left. The themes of belonging, of taking time for yourself, are so strong and so wonderful to explore with.Mosscap is learning about what it means to be sentient and making choices about themselves and their future. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. A Prayer for the Crown-Shy is a 2022 solarpunk novella written by Becky Chambers and published by Tor. The other only thing I’ll say is that I’m going to try to stop thinking of myself as a neurotic, damaged, mentally ill introvert. A Prayer for the Crown-Shy’ picks up immediately after the conclusion of Book 1 with Dex and Mosscap leaving the wilderness and beginning their journey across the human occupied places of Panga.

This book really was a comforting read, and I really want to read more books about Dex and Mosscap travelling together! This book picks up pretty much where the first one left off, with Dex and Mosscap heading to civilization. Each chapter details their interactions with the different communities and the interactions are diverse as Mosscap is introduced to the populace. But there’s a danger, in general, I think when we talk about utopian/aspirational settings to kind of *flatten* individual humanity into a kind of consensus of assumptions about what moral virtue is or how happiness can best be found.

As a person, who lived in the USSR and was also interested in social utopian experiments during the last few centuries across the globe, I still consider popular in the West, esp. truly a beautiful story, that feels like a warm and healing hug, and i hope becky chambers gives us more!
