The book follows Dex and Mosscap as they tour Panga in search for an answer to the simple question, "what do you want?" A lot of the book is conversation between the duo as they travel to their destination. When they arrive, Mosscap asks the native populace its question. Each chapter features a different region.
In this book we meet more characters than the previous one, which was just a solitary adventure between the duo. Mosscap's obliviousness when it comes to human society is often played off for laughs.
The cover is beautiful, just like the last one. ( )

These are great books. In a world where humanity has come to terms with the land around them after almost destroying the world in a previous era, these book don't have a big message, or about saving the world, Or even have much of a plot. But what they are is easy to read, and say something a person's place in the world and the connections to each other.

The problems that the Dex and Mosscap have are different, but the same. Dex loves their family, but gets overwhelmed by them. Mosscap is worried that its family (the robot community) won't accept it because it has become too different.

The story is written gracefully, with humility. The author doesn't take her characters for granted. It also helps that there is no grandstanding, no speeches, just a conversation with two friends who are completely different, helping each other overcome problems and accept themselves for who they are.

Was hoping for more on this - it's far from bad, but doesn't quite have the same punch as Psalm which had me close to tears. It's also very short at only just 100 pages, and hence doesn't manage to say very much. It picks up from the end of Psalm, with Dex and the Robot venturing into civilization to answer the robots' question - what does humanity need. Obviously there are manyfold answers, but as nearly everyone already has the basic calories and shelter, it's more philosophical.

Cute but not brimming with the joy her best works have invoked. ( )

A Prayer for the Crown-Shy is Becky Chambers’ followup to the marvelous A Psalm for the Well-Built, and this book is just such a delight. Crown-Shy relates the further adventures of Sibling Dex and Mosscap the robot as they visit various towns and villages of the planet Panga.

The developing relationship between the human tea monk and the robot is wondrous to behold. Mosscap is such a beautifully drawn character, who is wise beyond his years at times, but innocent in his delight at discovering the joys of the natural world. The author has created what to me are two of the most indelible characters I’ve ever met in a book.

The audiobook version is excellent. The narrator, Em Grosland, was an outstanding narrator, and such a pleasure to listen to.

Many thanks to Macmillan Audio and to Netgalley for providing an ALC of this wonderful novella. ( )

Don’t come for the plot. It’s barely there, but I didn’t miss it. Come for the sweet, serene, thoughtful, peaceful, post-industrial eco-utopia and most of all for the sweet, thoughtful, loving characters who still suffer with the existential problems that all sentient beings are heir to. There is a scene, when the characters go fishing, that made me sob, and it would probably give away too much to go into detail, but it perfectly encapsulates what is so moving to me about Becky Chambers’ work, particularly the Monk and Robot series.

Praise to the Parents.
Praise to Trikilli, of the Threads.
Praise to Grylom, of the Inanimate.
Praise to Bosh, of the Cycle.

Praise to their Children.
Praise to Chal, of Constructs.
Praise to Samafar, of Mysteries.
Praise to Allalae, of Small Comforts.

They do not speak, yet we know them.
They do not think, yet we mind them.
They are not as we are.
We are of them.

We are the work of the Parents.
We do the work of the Children.
Without use of constructs, you will unravel few mysteries.
Without knowledge of mysteries, your constructs will fail.
Find the strength to pursue both, for these are our prayers.
And to that end, welcome comfort, for without it, you cannot stay strong.

The thing about fucking off to the woods is that unless you are a very particular, very rare sort of person, it does not take long to understand why people left said woods in the first place.
