A Long Way to A Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers

Jem - HH Bondi Staff


Imagine if Joss Whedon's Firefly, Star Trek and Ursula K. LeGuin had a book baby. Well here it is!A character driven space-opera that explores gender, race, artificial intelligence and politics without making it immediately obvious. It follows the diverse and rag-tag crew of a creaky old spaceship on a dangerous mission to create a road to an unstable fringe territory. A witty and humane breath of fresh air within Sci-fi
