A Closed and Common Orbit

Wayfarers: Book #2

By Becky Chambers
Narrated by: Rachel Dulude
Length: 11 hours 29 minutes

A Closed and Common Orbit

“Becky Chambers has built a dazzling and expansive science fiction universe and seems determined to introduce readers to every corner. The AI Sidra and young Jane provide swapping viewpoints between a bustling, multi-species city sprawling over a moon and a sterile factory among miles and miles of junkyard on a planet with extremely skewed priorities. Sidra's journey to understand who and what she really only becomes more poignant as you follow Jane struggle to escape the only home, the only planet, she has ever known. In the end, despite the fantastic setting and characters, Chambers manages to deliver a striking message about consciousness, survival, and family.”

The Photographer

“Delta Dawn is an extraordinary photographer. She is especially in demand to photograph the birthday parties of the children of elite New Yorkers. She is so successful because she knows how to capture an image (or slightly manipulate it when necessary) to show the parents a picture of what they perceive the reality of their lives and relationships to be. Delta tells her own story in the book and she is just as accomplished at making the reader see reality as she wants you to believe it exists as she is at manipulating what you see. I have never encountered a character quite like Delta. This extremely addictive and suspenseful look at obsession, desire and obviously some deep-seated psychological trauma will have you asking yourself what is real until the very last word. Plus, you will learn a lot about photography.”
