Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Record of a Space Born Few by Becky Chambers

This book details the lives of a group of survivors of Earth’s demise.   Their diaspora was fueled by the eventual desecration of Earth and the cannibalization of the remaining infrastructure to build a fleet of arks.  The remnants of Earth roamed fruitlessly until they were discovered by a wealth of aliens.  This book is a collection of the narratives of individuals of the Fleet.

There is very little action in this book.  It takes a look at the impact of a nomadic life on the individuals spotlighted by the author.  Chambers even looks at society through the eyes of an  alien.  

The book is not compelling, but it really is a good look at human nature and motivation.

I enjoyed it 

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
