"In A Psalm for the Wild-Built, Hugo Award-winner Becky Chambers's delightful new Monk & Robot series gives us hope for the future. It's been centuries since the robots of Panga gained self-awareness and laid down their tools; centuries since they wandered, en masse, into the wilderness, never to be seen again; centuries since they faded into myth and urban legend. One day, the life of a tea monk is upended by the arrival of a robot, there to honor the old promise of checking in. The robot cannot go back until the question of "what do people need?" is answered. But the answer to that question depends on who you ask, and how. They're going to need to ask it a lot. Becky Chambers's new series asks: in a world where people have what they want, does having more matter?"--… (mer)

I had been reading long novels and listening to long audio-books so this refreshing novella by Becky Chambers was a pleasant change of pace. My daughter and I agree that it would be a fine life to a traveling tea monk. ( )

A fascinating story set in the future on a different planet. In this future robots develop sentience, and as a result, humanity reverts to a lifestyle pre-robots in order to respect the new lifeforms. The robots go off into the deep woods to live their lives, but promise to return one day to check up on humanity.

Enter the monk who, while experiencing an intense feeling of identity crisis and wanderlust, decides on a whim to change careers from gardening to tea. The majority of this book talks about the monk's path to becoming a tea monk, and how they become the best in their region. At some point, the monk, once again, finds themself with an intense feeling of wanderlust and identity crisis. So on a whim, they set out on a journey to a remote monastary in hopes that they will find a way to feel fulfilled. On the way, they come across one of the sentient robots who's duty it is to check up on humanity and find out what humans need. The rest of the book talks of their journey to the monastary and how they get to know each other and become friends.

I would call this novella a cosy read, and extremely relatable - especially as the main character describes their feelings of feeling unfulfilled in life even as they seem to be doing extremely well. The main character is also non-binary, so it's a good read for anyone looking for LGBTQ positive literature.

Looking forward to the next installment! ( )

Psalm for the Wild-Built is a charming, calming story that feels like you are taking a relaxing walk in the woods. A tea monk looking for meaning in life sets out on a journey through the woods to find an abandoned monastery. A robot, who stopped working for humans centuries before, wanders into the woods crosses paths with the monk. Together, they explore life’s big questions as they make their way through the rarely travelled forest. - Michelle ( )

A sweet cozy sci-fi that was wholesome and reflective and just a treat. Sibling Dex is at a crossroads. They have everything they could possibly want and need. but waking up each morning is a slog. They feel unfulfilled. Dex decides to leave his monastery and go out into the wilds and be a tea monk - hoping to find more fulfillment there. They never expect that they will run into a robot. Humans haven't seen robots in centuries and Dex is the first human to have the honor. What develops between Dex and Speckled Mosscap is a genuine curiosity and adventure. Short and sweet and wholesome. I'll have to read more in this series! ( )

What a fantastic book. Just a wonderful story that jumps right in with two main characters that really come to life. It wraps up with perfection and thought. I just loved this book. ( )

A Psalm for the Wild-Built begins a series that looks optimistic and hopeful, pursuing stories that arise from abundance instead of scarcity, kindness instead of cruelty.

Citat

"Many small creatures have wonderful intelligences. Very different from yours or mine, of course, but just wonderful. Sophisticated, in their own way." (p. 74)
Despite these blessings, sometimes Dex could not sleep. In those hours, they frequently asked themself what it was they were doing. They never truly felt like they got a handle on that. They kept doing it all the same. (p. 24)
And yet, if they were completely honest, the thing they had come to look forward to most was not the smiles nor the igfts nor the sense of work done well, but the part that came after all of that. The part when they returned to their wagon, shut themself insdie, and spent a few precious, shapeless hours entirely alone. (p. 39)
What is wrong with me that I can have everything I could ever want and have ever asked for and still wake up in the morning feeling like every day is a slog? (Dex, p. 120)
Dex offered an open palm, and Mosscap took it. The robot's hand was so much bigger, but the two fit together all the same. (p. 122)
