Inhaltsangabe

Shortlisted for the Arthur C. Clarke Award 2016.

Longlisted for the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction, 2016.

Firefly meets Mass Effect in this thrilling self-published debut!

When Rosemary Harper joins the crew of the Wayfarer, she isn't expecting much. The Wayfarer, a patched-up ship that's seen better days, offers her everything she could possibly want: a small, quiet spot to call home for a while, adventure in far-off corners of the galaxy, and distance from her troubled past.

But Rosemary gets more than she bargained for with the Wayfarer. The crew is a mishmash of species and personalities, from Sissix, the friendly reptillian pilot, to Kizzy and Jenks, the constantly sparring engineers who keep the ship running. Life onboard is chaotic but more or less peaceful - exactly what Rosemary wants.

Until the crew are offered the job of a lifetime: the chance to build a hyperspace tunnel to a distant planet. They'll earn enough money to live comfortably for years...if they survive the long trip through war-torn interstellar space without endangering any of the fragile alliances that keep the galaxy peaceful. But Rosemary isn't the only person onboard with secrets to hide, and the crew will soon discover that space may be vast, but spaceships are very small indeed.

Kritikerstimmen

"A joyous, optimistic space opera.... Although it isn't shy about tackling Big Questions, Planet is a heart-warming debut novel that will restore your faith in science fiction (specifically) and humanity (in general)." (Tor.com)
"One of the most enjoyable, brilliantly realised spacey SF novels I've read in ages." (James Smythe, author of The Echo)

An absolute GEM! True perfection!

I'm a die hard sci fi fan. And I'm bored with what science fiction has to offer these days.

That said, I was beyond delighted when I started this wonderful story that does ev-er-y-thing right.
Gosh, I have to restrain myself from not spelling out everything in capital letters.
From the heartfelt, warm, interesting, diverse, real, funny characters, who are no heroes but everyday people, to the stories that always leave you with an emotional beat, that give you something, to the truly unique experience of getting *personal* science fiction that is no off the mill military world.
The aliens are fascinating, the science feels real, and I want to spent as much time with this crew as possible. THANK you for writing the best novel I've come across in many many years, Becky Chambers.

And as if that's not enough, this audiobook is voiced to perfection by Patricia Rodriguez who wraps it all in a warm blanket, who impersonates all the characters with grace and wit and emotional depth.
An absolute and utter joy.

I can only hope that this was the first in a long line of adventures.
Needless to say, I'm on board!

Awesome world building

This is a really refreshing story and an awesome world to take place in. Don't expect too much action though. There is also not really a lot happening, but does it take a lot of big events to make a good story?
Though I often don't like female speakers (no sexism, just a personal preference), this one did quite a good job. Some voices could have been a little more distincted.

Eher Ansammlung von Geschichtchen als Roman

Was braucht dieses Hörbuch, um für Sie zu einem 4- oder 5-Sterne Hörerlebnis zu werden?

Es fehlt an einer bedeutsamen Rahmenhandlung. Die vorhandene Rahmenhandlung spielt in der Sache praktisch keine Rolle.

Was hat Sie am meisten an Becky Chamberss Geschichte enttäuscht?

Ich hätte einen klassischen Science Fiction Roman erwartet. Zudem wirkt das Ganze so, als wolle die Autorin ihre Hörer zu mehr Toleranz erziehen.

Was hätte der Erzähler des Hörbuchs besser machen können?

S.O.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Es handelt sich eher um eine Ansammlung von Kurzgeschicht(ch)en als um einen Roman.

Cute story, entertaining

Nothing really new, but put together well, a few nice twists and some nicely placed partakes to our world. I felt well entertained.

Just a lovely space road trip

I loved this one... Hilarious, exciting, fun, plainly beautiful and at times sexy... Full recommend! Narration absolutely nails it!

A different space adventure

I loved this book so much. It's so rare to actually meet a future book about regular people with regular jobs (not another space war).

I also loved the characters and the paceing.

A long journey

Mit "The Long Way To A Small, Angry Planet" habe ich mich etwas schwer getan. Die Geschichte fängt sehr gut und spannend an. Sie hat mich ein wenig an "Raumschiff Voyager" erinnert. Jedoch gab es auch einige Längen, weshalb sich die Geschichte zum Ende für mich sehr gezogen hat.

Trotzdem würde ich "The Long Way To A Small, Angry Planet" weiterempfehlen. Es ist kein Meisterwerk, aber die Geschichte baut eine ganz eigene Welt auf, die Stück für Stück interessanter wird.

Nice, average SF story

I kind of liked this story although it was nothing special, just your everyday space adventure.
What really irks me in this kind of story is the casual validation of racism whenever something about "you humans" or other species is being said, and it always makes me cringe a bit.
Otherwise fine and quite harmless.
