SHORTLISTED FOR THE BAILEY'S WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION 'A quietly profound, humane tour de force' Guardian The beloved debut novel that will restore your faith in humanity

#SmallAngryPlanet

When Rosemary Harper joins the crew of the Wayfarer, she isn't expecting much. The ship, which has 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 on board 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 on board with secrets to hide, and the crew will soon discover that space may be vast, but spaceships are very small indeed. PRAISE FOR THE WAYFARERS

Feel-good science fiction

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.

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. For example, a chapter ends with some revelation and a character has to tell the others and in the next chapter there's a time jump and that's it, maybe one or two sentences explaining what happened but we don't get to know and see more. Also, fyi: this book and the second one can be read as standalones. Another side note: that cover is sooooo beautiful!
