Description

Lovelace was once merely a ship's artificial intelligence. When she wakes up in a new body following a total system shutdown 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 listeners 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.

Rick & Morty is more of a sci-fi novel than this

This book, along with book 3 & 4 in this series are not sci-fi novels, there is no story line, no plots, nothing! it's just anthology of alien lives, such as what they eat, what they wear, how they dance.
There first book is decent with a story and character development. However, this book to sci-fi is what 50 shades of Grey was to romantic novels, and I don't mean that as a complement!

I didn’t think it was possible to recreate the magic of wayfarer

…without those characters, but it happened. I read book 3 before 2 and thought I wouldn’t get into lovely’s character after the end of Wayfarer book 1, but boy was I wrong. This book builds the world perfectly, the way the characters are so empathetically written and the plot inventive and real… Becky Chambers is a treasure.

The narrator handled a variety of character accents and personas really impressively. Never once took me out of the story. Impressively real stutter!

If a book could hug you, A Closed and Common Orbit would be the best hugger!

I just loved the intertwined stories of the two protagonists. Becky Chambers has a way to create incredible characters and her writing is warm and sweet and it’s everything I needed! Also, I love how the species are different in their physiologies and ways of talking, mating, etc. Such creativity!

The Wayfarer Series sits with the best of sci-fi.

Absolutely wonderful in every way. Becky Chambers has painted a beautiful universe, teeming with curious folk and intriguing conflict. Patricia Rodriguez's narration and character portrayal are fully life-giving, and I genuinely hope she has a role in a visual adaptation, if ever that comes along.

Originally, I was hesitant to accept a new cast of characters, almost fully distinct from the first installment. Now having finished the second book, I will comfortably dive headfirst into any story written by Becky Chambers, as I believe they belong sitting comfortably in the highest echelon of science fiction.

Amazing

Fully recommend!!! This book is absolutely lovely. The voices are great!
Only difficult part is sometimes the text conversations can drag due to the numbers at the header of each message. But I listened to it all in one day, so good!!!

it's hard to describe how much I love this book

like any good scifi, this book talks about many subjects: body image issues, immigration, dehumanization, depersonalization, transness, family, acceptance, prejudice, consumerism

yet at no point is it disrespectful or callous

it takes a while to start and engage, like the first book, but it's just damn good

Not compelling - plot lacks a reason to care

Where book one was successful at creating a broad universe and set of characters, book two failed at drilling down into the back story and day-to-day lives of a few, previously minor, characters.

What's disappointing is that there are some interesting sci-fi / AI ideas scattered in book two, so the failure wasn't on the sci-fi side, but just that the overall plot failed provide me with a reason to invest in the characters. I'm three quarters of the way through and going to return the book. I don't care about the fate of the characters, and I'm struggling to pay attention.

Also the repetition of the word 'real', becomes real tedious, real fast. I know there was a purpose to it, but I'm pretty sure everyone knew who Jane was upon our first introduction to her.

This narrator takes the cake

The narrator really made this book come alive. I absolutely adored her performance and it made me love the book even more. I don't know if I would have enjoyed the book as much as I did if it hadn't been for her.

Not a great continuation of the series

The characters are interesting but not enough so for me to get invested in them. As a result, the book drags on forever. It doesn't help that whatever little plot there is is easily predictable and just not so interesting to begin with.

It is not a terrible book but as someone looking for a good sequel to a great first book, this was just so much less compelling.

Galactic Commons, interesting place

Enjoyed this story even more than the first one. I enjoyed the alternating P.O.V. along with the depth of description and world building. The interactions are well described and the planets and space-ship life are fascinating, even after all the years I have been reading this genre.
