When Rosemary Harper joins the crew of the Wayfarer, she isn't expecting much. The Wayfarer, a patched-up ship that's 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.

They say stupid things to each other and they ignore all their friends because they’re too busy staring, and they get jealous, and they have fights over dumb shit like who did the dishes last or why they can’t fold their fucking socks, and maybe the sex gets...

3.5 The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers - My Thoughts
Let me be clear from the get-go. I think many readers would rate this book with at least 4 stars, even 5, but quite honestly, I'm not the ideal reader for this book, so MY rating is a little lower. I just don't want people to miss a fun, well-written, diversely cast, thoughtful, filled with love b...

3.5 The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers
A very entertaining, light, character driven science-fiction novel. This book focuses on the misfit crew of The Wayfarer and their trip to a "small, angry planet". The world-building is interesting, but the characters could have used more development or growth. This book covers some social and sc...

4.0 The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet
A quick fun read that I enjoyed a lot. There was some action scenes throughout the book but where this book shined was character development. I really enjoyed the relationships between the crew and I am looking forward to reading more in this series.4 Stars for a fun read.
