Good story, bland delievery
This follow up to Chambers excellent debut, is a sweet change of pace novel. Instead of interstellar action, Chamber slows it down with an intimate tale of interspecial social adaption and friendship. Chambers takes two characters with unique worldviews and allows us to see their often parallel development. If your looking for more action Fireflyesque space daring-do, you'll be disappointed, but you'd be pretty heartless if you didn't fins yourself caring for these characters. Narrator Rachel Dulude has a nice pleasant voice that would be perfect for a nice American standard coming of age tale, but here I was left wanting more. Despite characters like sexual morphing aliens, artificial intelligence, and cloned humans, the reading lacked much diversity. In scifi I love when you can tell a species by a narrators change of accent and cadence, here, outside of a bit of studder and minute vocal changes, all the characters sounded dissapointedly alike.

No drive in the story
I loved the first book in this series, it was like reading a book about an episode of Firefly. This book did noe really have a story, or a problem that needed solving. No one was going anywhere, and i was often a bit bored reading it, sadly. Nothing much happens until the last 3 hours of the book. I was disappointed with the book and missed the wayfarer crew.
