Publisher Description

Winner of the Hugo Award!

In A Psalm for the Wild-Built, bestselling Becky Chambers's delightful new Monk and 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?

Unexpected and refreshing

Like drinking a welcoming cup of tea this book was both energising and had for its brief length so much to say on the subject of purpose and the joys of simple existence. Something we all contemplate daily this quietly reassuring story has universal appeal that lingers we beyond the last page. Looking forward to the next one.

Prose proved to difficult to read

I really tried to be politically correct and just accept the use of plural pronouns for singular characters in this book but it jolted me out of the story. I constantly had to stop and question if this time the author meant ‘them’ as a group of people or just one person. So annoying for the reader. Politics aside, this book’s prose was just to distracting to enjoy the fantastic writing style I’ve come to love from Becky’s first books.
