  1. 10 reasons I love The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet 1 Feel good science fiction Bad things happen Injustice exists And yet, the world is a mostly beautiful and good place Bad people exist, but people in general are mostly nice and almost always interesting It s a truly heart warming novel.2 It s a great big world There are all these interesting alien species, with interesting cultures and history which affect their society If you love well written settings where the lore isn t a bunch of fact [...]

  2. Update 11 1 16 1.99 on kindle Not sure for how longI freaking loved this book And yes, I cried It was good crying though I always get nervous reading a sci fi book because I m afraid I won t know what s going on and yes I say that every time BUT this book is so awesome A couple of things went over my head but who cares I had no clue what a sci fi soap opera was but if they are all like this book then I want to read I m going to be buying this one and I did pre order the next book This isn t jus [...]

  3. Recommended to me as a cure for the heavy, blood and guts diet that s so prevalent in today s SF F, I was than just a little bit interested in an antidote.What I found, instead, was a heartily tasty meal of perfectly prepared insects aboard the Wayfarer, enjoying wonderful conversations and a surprisingly diverse collection of humans, aliens, and a truly beautiful soul within an AI.I mean, this is space opera Don t get the wrong idea There s a couple of tight spots, thievery and tragic death We [...]

  4. This was really, really not my cup of tea and I threw in the towel 2 3 of the way in I was surprised at how disappointing it was given that I picked it up on the basis of the normally dependable Adam Roberts recommendation in his end of year 2015 round up in the Guardian.I understand the desire to move SF from plot driven narratives to character driven narratives but you are throwing the baby out with the bathwater if your character driven narrative doesn t actually contain any characters worth [...]

  5. 3.5 starsIf you re looking for an action packed, page turning adventure story, this book is not for you However, if you want a sci fi novel that delivers wonderful characters and thoughtful commentary on existence, you ve found the right book.The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet is something unique It blends literary and science fictions into a story that looks at what it means to be human or alien amidst a world of chaos.And while I really enjoyed reading about these characters and their quirk [...]

  6. 4.5 A great feel good sci fi and character driven story that explores gender, race, politics, and sexuality.There were some great friendships, I giggled a few times and it was an oddly relaxing read I need to pick up the next one

  7. Niceness is undervalued In an age of cynicism, we believe very little is done altruistically this politician is facilitating an international adoption for campaign fodder that site is offering 1.99 books to boost web traffic that church is holding a Sunday neighborhood BBQ to evangelize Our stories show similar cynicism We ve embraced tortured dark heroes, we give five stars to stories sympathizing with killers and rapists, and although we believe a good guy can still win, the only way he can is [...]

  8. I ve never read a book quite like this There wasn t much of a story at all, but it was still engaging just on the strength of the characters alone Each chapter felt like a moral of the week episode in a 90s tv series The overall arc is about the characters and how their relationships change over time than the actual describable plot That all sounds kind of negative when I read it back, but it s not meant to be Mostly I m just impressed that it worked here, because I think something like this wo [...]

  9. DNF 60%I went with huge expectations In blurbs comparisons where made to Ursula Le Guin and Firefly mention those two is sure ways to get my undivided attention Sadly this book is nothing like my favorite tv show and it s nowhere near of depth of Le Guin s books.If I had to describe this book to anyone I would call it cross between Farscape and Disney fairytale.I did have some fun with it but around 60% of this book amount of sweetness and cheeseness become overwhelming Character driven sci fi s [...]

  10. Post originally from the booksandpieces blog.I tried to write a coherent review but all I can say is I LOVE IT WITH ALL MY HEART I love the universe that has been created, the elegant way it is created through little details of life and habits I love the food and the soap and wine and small intricacies of life in space rather than just war in space I love the interaction of the alien species, the coming together, the falling aparts, and the mis understandings I love the characters, their complex [...]

  11. Humans, we ve got something dangerous in us We almost destroyed ourselves because of it 4.5 stars Outstanding I ve officially been converted to sci fi Until this book I ve never enjoyed sci fi This has completely changed my view of sci fi and it is flipping awesome Some of the most imaginative world building and characterisations I ve ever come across The crew of the Wayfarer were amazing and I loved them all in their own way The relationships were fantastic, both platonic and romantic, hetero a [...]

  12. Going for 0.99 on Kindle UK right now Grab it while you can Characterization This is how you do it.This books was SO well written It felt so real Don t go in expecting space battles and an epic space opera Go in expecting superb characters many of which are aliens against the backdrop of space.Loved it.Book Depository has free worldwide shipping for it

  13. There was a nebula there, an explosion of dust and light, the fiery corpse of an ancient giant Within the gaseous folds slept clusters of unborn stars, shining softly She took an inventory of her body She felt her breath, her blood, the ties binding it all together Every piece, down to the last atom had been made out here, flung through the open in a moment of violence, until they swirled round and round, churning and coalescing, becoming heavy, weighing each other down But not any , the pieces [...]

  14. 3 5 A black hole was the perfect place to contemplate death There was nothing in the universe that could last forever Not stars Not matter Nothing This book had me on the fence for either a three or four star rating, I settled for 3.5 right smack bang in the middle Haha.I m going keep this review short sweet It was the prospect of getting mugged Or harassed Or stabbed She d seen a few people that definitely looked stabby I picked this book up after I saw two of my favourite GR users reading it [...]

  15. Welcome to the Starship Ned Flanders Seriously though, while the central ship in The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet is actually named The Wayfarer almost everyone in the book is so cloyingly sweet that the name of the Simpsons archetypal nice guy seems like a better fit There s friendly Captain Flanders, chirpy lady engineer Flanders, friendly dwarf Flanders you get the idea Even the ship AI is a little Flandersesque.Everybody seems to want to be everyone else s bestie with the exception of th [...]

  16. 4.25ish stars Somehow this manages to be both sweet and hardcore at the same time Its characters are people I want to knock a few back with and I don t even drink Chambers has made them each awesome in their own ways without trying too hard They re not cool in the way that literary heroes superheroes, public heroes, unsung heroes, etc typically are They re just legitimately good people who do what they do and watch out for their own It s refreshing.It doesn t even bother me a bit that there isn [...]

  17. This book was definitely unlike anything I have ever read before It is a sci fi about the crew on a spaceship called The Wayfarer But don t go into this book expecting an action packed space adventure This is a completely character driven book that explores gender, sexuality, race and politics in the most beautiful way.

  18. I did receive this book for free from the publisher but in no way does that affect my thoughts or review I genuinely loved it This book is BRILLIANT and I have to say it s instantly become THE book recommendation I will be giving out to people whenever they ask which Sci fi books I would recommend This is only the third time I have given a 5 rating to a sci fi book as I do personally read a lot fantasy than sci fi, but this was just perfect for me and it was truly a representation of everything [...]

  19. I ve never said this before because there has never been a book to touch me as much as this one did, but I have just completed reading my favorite book of all time I just I can t Between this, Attachments, and Harry Potter, I m like Spent I cannot even comprehend or articulate how much I loved this fucking book Oh my god

  20. The sequel to this was a Hugo nominee, so I figured I d start with the first one, and requested it from the library Well, maybe the sequel was a lot better, but unless I am assured of such a circumstance by a large and passionate crowd I m unlikely to bother to find out The Long Way is a concept piece It s a reaction to traditional space opera In a normal sci fi adventure, the scrappy crew of the Wayfarer would end up getting pulled into some kind of conflict bigger than themselves something wit [...]

  21. QUE LIVR O DA PORRA Com certeza um dos melhores que li esse ano Que personagens, que jornada, que escrita maravilhosa Amei demais Depois escrevo algo que seja mais informativo, mas estou processando todas as emo es ainda Muito bom

  22. This was so god damn boring.I have taken like two weeks to read this I cringe when I open my e reader and it automatically loads to this novel I can totally understand why people would love this book and if it had even a smidge of actual dramatic tension I would have loved it.The world building was interesting and detailed It is not only well thought out, it is thought provoking.So why two stars There is no dramatic thru line.What do I mean by this Questions, mysteries and potential dramas get i [...]

  23. 3.75 A buddy read with the FBR group, because we need some light reads from time to time All you can do, Rosemary all any of us can do is work to be something positive instead That is a choice that every sapient must make every day of their life The universe is what we make of it It s up to you to decide what part you will play This is very much the spirit of this book It is a Science Fiction about a space crew with predominantly pacifistic views, who work as tunneling contractors They don t eve [...]

  24. I can wait for the galaxy outside to get a little kinder First thing I have to say is A cover and title choice It had me in love the moment I first laid my eyes on this book.To be honest, The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet was not what I expected.I imagined a romantic and action packed plot What I got was an incredibly detailed, imaginably crafted and super lovely space trip This novel was about friendship, trust and acceptance, than anything else I was everything but disappointed, even thou [...]
