Dans A Psalm for the Wild-Built, la nouvelle et délicieuse série Monk and Robot de Becky Chambers, auteur à succès, nous donne de l’espoir pour l’avenir.

Cela fait des siècles que les robots de Panga ont acquis la conscience de soi et déposé leurs outils ; des siècles qu’ils ont erré en masse dans la nature, pour ne plus jamais être revus ; des siècles qu’ils se sont perdus dans les mythes et les légendes urbaines.

Un jour, la vie d’un moine du thé est bouleversée par l’arrivée d’un robot, venu honorer la vieille promesse de se présenter. Le robot ne peut pas repartir tant qu’il n’a pas répondu à la question “de quoi les gens ont-ils besoin ?”.

Mais la réponse à cette question dépend de qui vous demandez, et comment.

Ils vont devoir la poser souvent.

La nouvelle série de Becky Chambers pose la question suivante : dans un monde où les gens ont tout ce qu’ils veulent, est-il important d’avoir plus ?


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?

“I read this book in one sitting when I was having a really wretched day, and it helped. It felt like a warm cup of tea made by someone who loves me. It’s a soft hug of a book, and it says ‘It’s okay if you’re not okay right now.’ It made me cry the good sort of tears―the sort when someone is unexpectedly kind to you at the moment you need it most.” ―Alexandra Rowland

“I’m so pleased that this is the first of a series, and that there will be more of this world, because, wow, do I want more of it. This book is the type of reading experience I’d recommend to anyone having a hard time, which might be a lot of people at this point… it’s a comforting story about comfort and care, as soothing to read as it is to think about, and so full of hope and wonder and potential discovery. I hope you’ll try it.” ―Smart Bitches, Trashy Books
