One of the most delightful novels science-fiction that I've read in recent years.
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).
One of the most enjoyable, brilliantly realised spacey SF novels I've read in ages.
The Long Way is, very simply, an extremely good book, a seemingly effortless demonstration of how progressive and enjoyable science fiction can be.
A huge amount of space-opera-y fun, with some interestingly nuanced perspectives on gender woven into the whole.
