    Description

    The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet meets The 100 in this unforgettable debut by a brilliant new voice.

    A century ago, scientists theorised that a habitable planet existed in a nearby solar system. Today, 10 astronauts will leave a dying Earth to find it. Four are decorated veterans of the 20th century’s space race. And six are teenagers, graduates of the exclusive Dalton Academy, who’ve been in training for this mission for most of their lives.

    It will take the team 23 years to reach Terra-Two. Twenty-three years spent in close quarters. Twenty-three years with no-one to rely on but each other. Twenty-three years with no rescue possible, should something go wrong. And something always goes wrong.

    I was hooked and was sad when the book was over

    Absolutely enjoyed the book. Would love to have a part 2.

    While the book is superficially a sci-fi book about travel to another planet, it's really a study of psychology.

    awkward pacing, poor characters, illogical choices

    I don't demand realism from my sci fi, but I want the characters to make logical choices according to who they are, and I feel like that's lacking in this book.
    The pacing is awkward, too slow to be truly engaging.

    Slow Start but Picks Up Nicely

    The premise -- teenagers being sent into space with a seasoned crew to shadow for a 23-year trip -- felt logical and reasonable to me. Liked how main characters were developed. Teenage angst made story believable as well. Appreciated the inclusion of the subject of spirituality, a topic much of sci-fi avoids.

    DNF, couldn’t get that into it

    I didn’t finish. I got about six hours in finally decided that I couldn’t tell you what the story was about.


    There’s nothing particularly wrong with it. The characters are well drawn. The world seems interesting enough. Though pointlessly so up to the point I reached. There was plenty of social discomfort. Possibly too much.

    I just couldn’t see where it was going in any way that interested me. Everyone’s goals and how they were going to play against each other just wasn’t clear to me. And I was tired of waiting for it to become clear.

    This is literary (not flashy) speculative fiction

    This is a psychological science fiction novel and not a space opera or tech-driven novel. The technology is only a smidge into the future. Instead, this is about ethics, making human decisions, and choosing to explore.

    I read (actually listened to) the book because Audible suggested it had a bit in common with Becky Chambers' Wayfarers series. I think that is accurate (although, even Chambers' series has more high-tech flash). I also thought this book was similar to Meg Howrey's The Wanderers (although, Howrey's book also has more tech than Oh's).

    Bottom line -- the book is beautiful. This is true literary speculative fiction But, perhaps not for you if you like flash in your sci-fi.

    The characters are racially and class-wise diverse (I think, they are British, so this American has a difficult time "reading" some markers). Sadly, the crew seems overly straight/cisgendered. There is a bit of neurodiversity among the characters.

    The reader was good w/ a light British accent that was understandable to my American ears. She portrayed a lot of emotion well.

    NOTHING like the wayfarers series

    Don't believe the description. This book has none of the same themes and a different tone from Chambers' works and lacks any sort of LGBT rep. If you're coming for a book similar to hers, you're in the wrong place and you have been lied to.

    a pretty decent 1/3 if a book

    fairly well told story that suffers a bit from inconsistent pacing....and then ends.
    maybe this was a set up for sequels bit if the author thinks this suffices as a full novel they are wrong.

    Too Teening

    I’m not sure if it was the pitch of the reader’s voice or the content of the book, but “Do You Dream of Terra-Two?” was too teeming for me. The speed of the plot was all jumbled up that it didn’t make sense. I have nothing against the young adult genre and it’s a great way to introduce science fiction for those beginners, but this one was a bit puberty for a mid 40 year old.

    Terrible

    Weak plot and character development. The most uninspired monotone narration I have encountered. I could not finish it.
