Críticas

"As with her amazing debut, the power of Chamber's second space opera is in her appealing characters [...] Her protagonists might not all be human, but they possess more humanity than most"--Library Journal (starred review)

"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

Lovelace was once merely a ship's artificial intelligence. When she wakes up in an 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.

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.

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.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Even better than Small Angry Planet 23 de octubre de 2016
Por Marcy L. Thompson - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Edición Kindle Compra verificada
I loved Becky Chamber's first book. I don't think you have to have read that to enjoy this, but if you like this one, by all means go back and read the first one.

When I sat down to read this book, I was a little nervous. I had loved the first book so very much, and that's a lot of pressure to put on a sequel, even a stand-alone sequel. But this book is, if anything, even better. Although the setting for the series is very much space and colonies and aliens and even the occasional space war, the focus is really on the characters and the cultures that they come from.

This book is about what makes a person a person, and how being a "manufactured" person affects how one emerges as a person. Although the two main characters are a human and an AI in a human body (a "kit"), the book is filled with many other people from different species and cultures. A great deal of the story concerns learning to become a person when you were built more to be a thing (a slave or an AI). The multitude of interesting, well-conceived aliens surrounding the two main characters help illuminate that journey.

Mind you, this is in no way a classic Campbellian "hero's journey". It's about the journey of having to invent oneself with no good role models for how to be the kind of person you are. Amidst a dazzling array of people from wildly different backgrounds, the book explores the weightedness of names (both main characters name themselves, for different reasons, but in both cases, the act is heavily symbolic), the difference between the interior and exterior view of the same person, the way one's background determines the degree to which there is congruence between the self and the body in which the self resides, and oh, so very much more.

The characters have depth, the setting is intriguing, and I could go on raving about how mich I loved this book. But you shouldnt be reading this comment -- you should be reading the book. If you like character-driven stories set in solidly world-built locations and a writer with a real appreciation for the depths of cultural differences, you are in for a real treat.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Amazingly comforting--but stimulating 20 de octubre de 2016

Like its predecessor (which is not necessary to follow and enjoy this book, but why wouldn't you read it?!), this book introduces us to a huge variety of species, cultures, ideas, and lifestyles--but all through the emotionally potent viewpoint of a few key characters. You may come for the space opera, but you stay for the people, whatever form they take. And yet throughout it all, you are taking part in a conversation about what it means to be a person, to be part of a family, and to have purpose. Wonderfully well done; I hope the author continues to explore the universe she has created!

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas reeeeaally liked it, and kept sneaking time to read it ... 26 de octubre de 2016
Por Chelsea A. - Publicado en Amazon.com

I read this book's predecessor quickly, and blazed through this one even faster. Which is not a knock on it - it means I really, reeeeaally liked it, and kept sneaking time to read it during work, or while walking ... just a lot of places when I maybe shouldn't have been reading. This book is really comfy, in a lot of ways - it's very optimistic sci-fi in terms of setting, which I love, and the characters all generally like each other, which is something I will not lie about appreciating.

As a big fan of the Culture books and of the Imperial Radch trilogy, this book appealed to me because it had an AI with personhood - thoughts, feelings, all that. And an AI in a really difficult situation trying to figure out her way in the world. The author used the trappings of SF to tell a really relatable story about the search for meaning and purpose and how to exist even if things are hard.

The dual narrative structure worked a lot better than I thought it would initially. At first I wasn't super invested in the Jane 23 segments, but after a while I found myself looking forward to those just as much as the main storyline.

This is just ... a really cozy book. Good characters, and setting I'd love to see more of. Ahh! I'm so happy I read this. I keep forgetting to mention it, but I seriously love the worldbuilding. The GC seems super-cool and inviting. A little Mass Effect-y in some ways, if that's your kind of thing.

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!

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Disappointing second try - nothing like the first book at all 18 de enero de 2017
Por DBP - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Edición Kindle Compra verificada
This second story in this universe was a somewhat boring disappointment. It's a coming-of-age story for two characters and lacks the action, excitement and marvel of the first book. The first book delved into this new universe and went into marvelous and detailed descriptions of all within it, but this book takes things more for granted and drags on with no suspense or new wonders. I found myself struggling to get through the book as I just couldn't get into the story. More than a chapter devoted to an AI in a synthetic body deciding whether or not to get a tattoo?
