    Inhaltsangabe

    Sunday Times best-selling author Becky Chambers returns to the Galactic Commons in the final instalment in her award-winning and critically acclaimed Wayfarers series.

    With no water, no air and no native life, the planet Gora is unremarkable. The only thing it has going for it is a chance proximity to more popular worlds, making it a decent stopover for ships travelling between the wormholes that keep the Galactic Commons connected. If deep space is a highway, Gora is just your average truck stop.

    One of the many establishments present is the Five-Hop One-Stop, a place where long-haul spacers can stretch their legs (if they have legs, that is) and pick up fuel, transit permits and assorted supplies. The Five-Hop is run by an enterprising alien and her occasionally helpful child, who both work hard to provide a little piece of home to everyone passing through.

    When a freak technological failure halts traffic to and from Gora, three strangers are thrown together at the Five-Hop. Grounded and with nothing to do but wait, the trio - an exiled artist with an appointment to keep, a cargo runner at a personal crossroads and a mysterious individual doing her best to help those on the fringes - are compelled to confront where they've been, where they might go and what they might be to each other.

    Einfach gute moderne SiFi

    Wie erwartet ein sehr schönes Buch. Becky Chambers schafft es einfach Geschichten zu schreiben die fremden Welten Spielen, voller bunter Aliens sind und mit neuen Kulturen gefüllt sind. Und am Ende lernt man dennoch etwas darüber was es bedeutet Mensch zu sein. Richtig gute Sience Fiction eben :D

    Good book

    Wayfarer 4 is another calm reflective story about people dealing with society, cultural norms and conflicts and personal development. A character novel with a non-world changing action component set in a SciFi world. I liked it just like I liked the previous ones! It does deal somewhat with the 2020 feelings, but in a mellow way.

    One technical note I have Is that there is a problem in the audio edit at the 1:21,29 mark, where a page number marker hasn‘t been edited out and some part of the following Recording seems to be missing- maybe a half sentence or more??
