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.

Mal ein realitätsnaher Blickwinkel...

...wenn man das bei Science Fiction überhaupt erwarten kann ;)
Es erinnert tatsächlich stark an Firefly, minus die coole Action.
Das ist mir tatsächlich ein wenig zu kurz gekommmen. Dafür insgesamt der “Soap”-Faktor (Herz und Beziehungstrallala) ein wenig zu hoch. Aber das nehme ich gerne in Kauf für die packende Story, die alles in allem ein wenig an der Oberfläche bleibt, aber dennoch mitfiebern lässt. Ich will definitiv mehr von ihr hören! Die Sprecherin war klasse!

A pleasantly slow space opera.

The title may introduce the plot, but it is much more than that.
This is character-driven not action-packed and pleasant because of that.
Along with the new admin Rosemary Harper, who has her own reasons to choose spacer life, we join the multi-species crew of the Wayfarer.
And we learn about different species, life, love,
friendship, philosophy and politics.
It's interesting, funny, serious, everything..
Join the Wayfarer crew.

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.

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.

It's all there

Wonderfully smart, told with a profound knowledge about how motivation and emotion cause each other, and an obvious awareness about the fact, that there is no one truth. For someone who reads (and likes being read to) a lot, this is a glorious find. The depth of the protagonists, the detail of the different worlds, and the pure sympathy for so many facets of consciousness, dished out with ease and a smirk. And all in space. Stars, dive right in, its brilliant!

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!
