Review quote

Joyously written and a joy to read. * Claire North on THE LONG WAY TO A SMALL ANGRY PLANET * A quietly profound, humane tour de force' * Guardian on THE LONG WAY TO A SMALL ANGRY PLANET * One of the most enjoyable, brilliantly realised spacey SF novels I've read in ages. * James Smythe on THE LONG WAY TO A SMALL ANGRY PLANET * A joyous, optimistic space opera... Although it isn't shy about tackling Big Questions, PLANET is a heart-warming debut novel that will restore your faith in science fiction (specifically) and humanity (in general). * Tor.com on THE LONG WAY TO A SMALL ANGRY PLANET * Deeply moving... the sparky empathy of Chambers' writing [draws] you into these strange creatures' hearts and minds in a way that is never less than deeply involving * Daily Mail *show more
