Description

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!*

Short-listed for the Bailey's Women's Prize for Fiction. 

The beloved debut novel that will restore your faith in humanity.

When Rosemary Harper joins the crew of the Wayfarer, she isn't expecting much. The ship, which has seen better days, offers her everything she could possibly want: a small, quiet spot to call home for a while, adventure in far-off corners of the galaxy and distance from her troubled past. 

But Rosemary gets more than she bargained for with the Wayfarer. The crew is a mishmash of species and personalities, from Sissix, the friendly reptilian pilot, to Kizzy and Jenks, the constantly sparring engineers who keep the ship running. Life on board is chaotic but more or less peaceful - exactly what Rosemary wants. 

Until the crew are offered the job of a lifetime: the chance to build a hyperspace tunnel to a distant planet. They'll earn enough money to live comfortably for years...if they survive the long trip through war-torn interstellar space without endangering any of the fragile alliances that keep the galaxy peaceful. 

But Rosemary isn't the only person on board with secrets to hide, and the crew will soon discover that space may be vast, but spaceships are very small indeed. 

*Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

Very enjoyable

I like both narrations of this book although I think lean a little more towards the original narration. Even with that said it's still a really good lesson. Best with headphones.

Relaxing book with lovable characters

The book was a great listen for my daily commute. Each chapter felt like an episode of an ongoing tv series. It touched on a number of social and moral issues without sounding like the author was pushing her opinion on the listener. I thought the narrator did an extraordinary job voicing the characters. It was easy to tell which character was speaking and she did a good job staying consistent with all the alien dialects/languages. Kizzy's voice made me smile every time.

Loved the soundtrack

Good story, well narrated, and the soundtrack was a great addition. I will look for more Booktrack titles to listen too.

Amazing scifi

The best scifi I've read in years, in naturally challenges the reader to question their positions.

Refreshingly Optimistic

I really enjoyed this book. It's thoughtful, refreshingly optimistic, and feel-good without being cheesy or naive. The plot is pretty episodic; it was kind of like listening to a season of Firefly in a very good way.

Most of the time I thought the booktrack narration added the appropriate mood or tension. Occasionally, It made me feel inappropriately anxious or like things were concluding when they weren't.
