    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.

    I liked this book even more than the first book in the series. Great characters. Important topics.

    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.

    INCREDIBLE

    The narrator was phenomenal. The writing was superb. The story was beautiful. Cannot recommend this book enough. The whole serious is excellent, too.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    SF World-Building with Purpose and Heart

    This second entry into Chambers's "Wayfarer" series picks up where part one left off. Cleverly, it uses two minor character from that first book and takes them away from the 'Wayfarer.'

    In essence, this is a double coming of age story in two timelines that eventually lead to a shared place—home. It is "slow" in that it takes its time to establish its worlds and its characters, but you want to be along for the ride every minute. In that way, it is expertly paced.

    This is a book that tackles big questions in small ways, and it's a winning combination. I did not expect to like this as much as "The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet" at first, but ended up liking it even more.

    Chambers's universe echoes Le Guin without ever being merely epigonal or derivative. It's a worthwhile addition to the collection of sci fi worlds that have become so numerous, and there are many stories still to be told in that world.

    Rodriguez's narration isn't flashy and it suits the material well. All in all, a definite recommendation if you want your SF to tell stories about people and what it means to be alive.

    Slow but beautiful.

    For some people maybe to little action/ progress but i think its exactly in the right tempo. Definitely a good second saga. I don't mind that's about pepper and lovely 2.0

    An underwhelming story with good characters.

    Unfortunately, as a fan of the first book, I was massively disappointed when I realized this book is about completely different people without the adventures of the wayfarer.

    The story is well told, but ultimately very slow and at least to me not gripping.

    The voice actress again garners my deepest respect for her performance.

    I will give the next book a chance anyway.

    Fantastisch

    Ich ziehe meinen Hut vor der Autorin! Ein tolles Buch. Die Charaktere sind komplex und detailliert, die Geschichte atemberaubend.

    Alles andere als "common"

    diese wunderbare Geschichte habe ich gleich zweimal gehört und mich sowohl in den wunderbaren Details als auch in der Gesamtheit der Handlung verloren! Eine klare Empfehlung!
