Críticas

"Chambers uses her considerable talent to take a more focused and contained look at a gut-wrenching story of self-determination and personal autonomy [...] No matter what beautiful and strange world Chambers takes us to, we can count on her to lead with humor and heart."--RT Book Reviews (4 1/2 stars)

"Humane and alien, adventurous and thoughtful, vast in its imagination and wonderfully personal in the characters it builds. But above all else, it is joyously written and a joy to read."--Claire North, author of The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August

"Great fun!"--Ann Leckie, author of Ancillary Justice

"Becky Chambers' debut novel . . . is probably the most fun that you'll have with a space opera novel this year. It's exciting, adventurous, and the cozy sort of space opera that seems to be in short supply lately. . . . Not to be missed."--iO9

"Becky Chambers' debut is 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

"A warm, big-hearted, progressive and fun blast of sci-fi. . . . The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet is just so much fun to read, and we can't wait to see what Chambers does next. 5 stars."--SciFiNow

"A quietly profound, humane tour de force that tackles politics and gender issues with refreshing optimism."--The Guardian

"One of the most enjoyable, brilliantly realized spacey SF novels I've read in ages."--James Smythe, author of The Echo and The Explorer

Descripción del producto

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet introduced readers to the incredible imagination of Becky Chambers and has been nominated for any number of awards and accolades, including the Baileys Prize for Women's Fiction, the Tiptree Award, the Kitschies Golden Tentacle and the Arthur C. Clarke Award.

Lovelace was once merely a ship's artificial intelligence. When she wakes up in a new body, following a total system shut-down and reboot, she has to start over in a synthetic body, in a world where her kind are illegal. She's never felt so alone.

But she's not alone, not really. Pepper, one of the engineers who risked life and limb to reinstall Lovelace, is determined to help her adjust to her new world. Because Pepper knows a thing or two about starting over.

Together, Pepper and Lovey will discover that, huge as the galaxy may be, it's anything but empty.

A Closed and Common Orbit is the stand-alone sequel to The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet and is perfect for fans of Firefly, Joss Whedon, Mass Effect and Star Wars.

While perhaps not as good as its predecessor, A Closed and Common Orbit is still worth your time. New readers would do well to read the first of Chambers's books, The Long Journey to a Small and Angry Planet, but this second installment in the 'verse would stand on its own quite well.
The book goes between present day Sidra's point of view, and past Pepper's. While a bit different, this choice was very effective. You know where Pepper ends up, but her journey in getting there makes for an intense read. Sidra's point of view was tied in with well-written parallels. However, despite the danger she faces, it never felt very... Imminent. Her most interesting points were due to her character traits. Preferring corners, wanting tattoos, tasting things, so on.
Chambers blew me out of the water once again when it came to her world-building. Not only do non-mammilian aliens not have breasts, the aliens that take up a good portion of this book, once again, aren't necessarily binary-gendered. Bless Chambers for throwing a genderfluid character into the main cast... I just wish she would do so with a human character too...
It is also important that I mention the nuanced and well-placed discussions of ethics. Fans of her last book would probably recognize the interesting stance on AI, cloning, and other "future" issues. The anonymous forums were a great way to discuss the AI issues in particular.

I read Long Way to a Small Angry Planet with my husband, and we both loved it. (The narrator for the book on tape is amazing too!) We pre-ordered A Closed and Common Orbit because of how much we enjoyed the humor, world -building, and science of the first book. I definitely enjoyed this sequel; learning more about Pepper's past, seeing the new Lovelace surviving her changed circumstances. I don't recall lol'g during the sequel as much, but I think the tone and focus is different; there's still some fun bits and some bittersweet moments, but we're spending this sequel learning about Pepper's past and how screwed up life still is for AIs in this universe and how Sidra (formerly known as Lovelace) finds her way. I liked how the first book handled gender discussions, and this sequel continues that trend. There was less overt romance/sex, and I actually appreciated that, although it was really interesting learning more of the Aleuon. Finally in terms of sci-fi, I'm not a person who gets hung up on "is this realistic science?" so take with a grain of salt but I really enjoyed the sci-fi in the book, particularly the Easter Eggs that Mr. Crisp included. Anyway - I thought it was a great continuation of the series. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A wonderful follow-up to The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet 30 de noviembre de 2016
Por Robyn - Publicado en Amazon.com

A wonderful follow-up to The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet! A Closed and Common Orbit takes us out of the Wayfarer to follow Pepper, the tech-head from Port Coriol, and Sidra (nee Lovelace,) who briefly served as ship's AI followed a failed attempt to repair the previous AI, Lovey, with a hard reset. After what must have been the most awkward tenure of a ship's AI in galactic history, Sidra must have believed it would be a relief to be transferred into a "kit," an artificial (and very illegal) body. Yet she finds that living in a body is hell: she can only look in one direction at a time, her memory is barely expansive enough to hold a single library, and she has to face the existential horror of being allowed to choose her own purpose in life.

Luckily, Pepper's there to guide her through this, just as soon as she sorts through her feelings about being forcibly split from another AI who raised her and helped her escape from the regime that used her for slave labor as a child. Yeah, you thought you had emotional problems.

Despite the sometimes-despondent themes, A Closed and Common Orbit is a fundamentally optimistic book. It shows us a world in which empathy is the default expectation and where chauvinism is almost universally condemned, and it does it without ever being preachy or overbearing. With beautiful prose, wonderful characters, and a deeply engaging plot, this is a thoroughly enjoyable addition to the Wayfarer series.

Por Thomas the Doubter - Publicado en Amazon.com

I was delighted to see this next book from Becky Chambers. This one is every bit as good as "Small Angry Planet" was. She has a wonderful way of humanizing her characters, of making us care about them as people. She also introduces us to a SciFi world that does not need laser blasters, the deaths of billions or space battles to entertain and draw the reader in. SciFi has become populated with far too much of that nonsense, cheap plots that are supposed to make us care but generally just make us numb to the scale of it all.

But not Becky Chambers, we care about her characters because they are so very human, even if not all of them really are human. In her universe humans are low in the pecking order, not the great saviors, not the smartest or the ones that always save the day. Her humans are survivors, creatively fitting in to whatever the universe throws at them, insisting on their place "out there", while not threatening or needing to blow up everything in sight.

This book picks up at the point in the previous book where the techno fixit geek Pepper has left the ship taking with her the ship's former AI who, by being shut down, lost her identity as an individual and her relationship with her crew, making it impossible for her to continue as ship's AI. But Pepper has an illegal artificial body into which she installs the AI formerly known as Lovelace (Lovie) and this book is a really fun mix of the AI's taking on a new identity and name and discovering what it means to interact with humans as a physical being while also needing to make sure she does not reveal her true identity. Chambers also skillfully works in the backstory of Pepper and her partner Blue in a way that neatly blurs the line between flesh and blood human and artificial life.

Very nicely done Ms. Chambers. I eagerly await more of your writing. SciFi needs authors like you.

The first thing I did after I read The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet last month was pre-ordering this book, so it’s probably an understatement to say that I’ve been excited to read it.

A Closed and Common Orbit is set in the same universe as The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet and follows from the events of that book. It has a couple of shared characters, but it’s entirely standalone. We follow Lovelace, a sentient artificial intelligence designed to run a spaceship, who has been downloaded into a humanoid body because of circumstances not entirely in her control. AIs in bodies are illegal in the Galactic Commonwealth, and she has to figure out how to blend in as a human while staying under the radar. The secondary protagonist is Pepper, an engineer who helps Lovelace in part because of her past experience with AIs. We get to see how she grew up and eventually the story ties into Pepper and Lovelace’s present life.

I love the cozy feel of this story – it’s not something that I usually associate with science fiction, and I hope Becky Chambers keeps writing these kinds of stories forever. And this isn’t just science fiction, it’s good science fiction. Lovelace’s story reminded me a little of Breq from Ancillary Justice – she’s an AI trying to make sense of an existence she’s really not designed for, but their personalities and stories are very different. Breq was an imperial warship, but Lovelace is a friendly and accommodating AI designed to be as human as possible.

Lovelace and Pepper both have pretty screwed up circumstances, but they make the best of it and end up being really great people who are at peace with themselves. I think that’s what I love about these books – every character genuinely wants to be good. Sometimes things fall together in a way that seems a little too neat, but I’m happy to suspend my disbelief for it because it makes for such a good story.

I’m not sure if there’s going to be another book in this universe, I hope there is because Amazon has A Closed and Common Orbit labeled as “Book 2 of 3”, even though there’s no third book to be found. Regardless, I’m going to read whatever Becky Chambers writes next as soon as I can.
