Pressestimmen

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 One of the most delightful novels science-fiction that I've read in recent years. Citior SF The Long Way is, very simply, an extremely good book, a seemingly effortless demonstration of how progressive and enjoyable science fiction can be. Pornokitsch A huge amount of space-opera-y fun, with some interestingly nuanced perspectives on gender woven into the whole. -- Adam Roberts, author of Jack Glass

I can only recommend this book. I thoroughly enjoyed the change of pace. Where many Scifi flicks/reads aim for a saga of galaxy-spanning peace, war and all the conflict sparked by race, culture and technology between those states, Becky Chambers aims for a smaller (but no less important!) scope. The book follows a single ship and its diverse crew, their interactions, their small moments of happiness, their personal struggles, their private tragedies and daily work grind punching holes into space.

While some may call it mundane, once immersed in everyone's life you become quickly attached to each of the cast members - maybe more to some and less to others, but they are all very relatable in completely different ways. It is also an inclusive book, in a way that feels incredibly natural. Due to many other reasons I cannot eloquently put into words, this book is one I pick up time and time again to re-read. Not for galactic heroism, but for the cozy feel of what home and family can mean to those making a life in a tin can hurtling through space.

This book, though not without flaws, was awesome. This novel has been labeled as "feel-good science fiction" and I completely agree! I need more books like this one.

A heads up though: this book is more character driven than plot or action driven. I don't mind that but it is not everybody's cup of tea. So be warned.

So, what mustn't a character driven book lack? Of course, great characters! I never got bored because I found the characters to be so well written and developed. We have multiple POVs, so we get to know everybody on board the Wayfarer. I had to get used to that because I initially thought that we'd stick more closely to Rosemary, it sounded like that when reading the description, but I quickly adapted to the multiple POVs.

I adored Sissix and Kizzy, they were my favorites. They are each in their own way warm and bubbly characters. I never quite connected with the others, though, which is very sad.
There are all these interesting alien species and alien cultures we read about, the worldbuilding was wonderfully done.

The cast and characters were also effortlessly diverse, without preaching or rubbing it into our noses. It just felt natural to have many different genders and races and it being NORMAL. God, I loved that!

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet was compared to the TV-series Firefly and I agree, I can see the similarities: space opera, awesome characters, aliens, alien culture, different planets, focus on characters. But Firefly had more action and overall plot (and a Western theme).
(Side note: I love Firefly. One of the best TV shows if you ask me.)

What bothered me was that interesting scenes were skipped.

spannend, aber doch letztlich nicht so originell wie ich nach den Rezensionen gedacht hatte. Ich würde trotzdem eine "echte" Fortsetzung gern lesen, leider ist die schon erschienene Fortsetzung, die eines Nebenhandlungstranges, der mich noch nicht so interessiert, dass ich es gekauft hätte. Kann aber noch kommen. Für Spaceopera-Fans unbedingt lesenswert.

if you're looking for bouncy feel-good characters that work and live together, you might like this book.
if you're looing for science-fiction, you won't.

this book was recommended by amazon in the sci-fi section - I don't think science fiction is the right category.
as the other comments say (directly or by implication): not much happens.
books that revolve around character development and less about action can be really cool. but the characters in this book don't really catch me.
the supposedly "dark secrets" every member of the crew have aren't dark, complex, or even intriguing. the characters themselves are quite shallow/too nice and naive to be true.
the inter-species interaction and policies and stay on a very basic level (could've been developed more).
what I like most about science-fiction is when people are creative about technology and physics, and especially how those specifically change the culture we know. this book sets a small soap opera into a spaceship that could just as well be a house (curtains?), and introduces a few extra species that look, talk, and act just a little different compared to humans.

Let's get the good things out first. Becky Chambers' prose style, while nothing special, is decent and unobtrusive and a good deal better than some other genre fiction I've read. You get the feeling that she could be a very entertaining writer. There’s a lot of sci-fi writing that I put away after a couple of pages because it’s way worse than this. Her world-building isn't spectacular, but it's rich and it works – Chambers knows how to create a sci-fi universe. The alien species and future history for humanity are definitely the strongest part of this novel. And in theory her protagonist is original enough to make this book worth reading – there definitely aren’t many space operas with a main character who is a female clerk. But unfortunately, the novel doesn’t do anything remotely interesting or fun with this original idea. The book is intended to be light reading, and it is – the first third or so was, while not actually a page-turner, quick and pleasant to read. Lastly, the politics behind it are liberal and LGBT-friendly, which is also a plus.

So what’s my problem with this book? It’s that clearly, it is geared to evoke an emotional reaction, which is cool, but it doesn’t do the work to actually get me to react.

Structurally, LWTASAP is a soap opera – it’s episodic, with a very simple plot tying together a diverse cast of characters, and each episode centers on either an emotional conflict or an external conflict that causes a revelation about the backstory of a character (while also revealing a little bit about the world – which is usually the best bit). I’m not against this structure – you know it from serial television, and I like it, but this novel is a study in how not to do it.
