Ahoy there me mateys I received this sci fi eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review So here be me honest musings I wanted to read this debut ever since I saw it described as The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet meets The 100 I know nothing about The 100 but sadly this book did not live up to the comparison to the Becky Chambers work In fact this book walks the plankPros The author s writing shows promise For a debut novel I felt the writing style itself was decent I finished it in one day I really enjoyed the concept of ten astronauts going on a mission to set up a colony on an Earth like planet I enjoyed the set up of the novel and how the author chose to countdown to the launch and beginning of the missionBut there were a bit too many problems to make me like this bookCons The character point of views were the six young teenage astronauts on the mission I really would have liked some of the chapters to have been from the experienced adult astronauts The teenagers all seemed to have an extreme problem an eating disorder depression hallucinations etc I found it hard to believe that every one of them would have got through the selection process with a major illness Actually two of the adults had major problems a terminal illness and a griefanger problem At no time was there any real oversight from the supposedly in charge adults on the ship The characters were not really fleshed out and I often didn t know which character was speaking during dialogue sections because they sounded too similar in tone In addition the blurb claims there were four adults on board I just finished it and I can only remember three Captain Engineer and Medic Who was the fourth If that person existed then I mixed them in with the Engineer The world building of the shipboard life did not seem realistic or detailed enough The majority of the story centered on the teens fighting with each other and odd relationship dramas Once the actual countdown to the launch occurs the plot began to disintegrate The middle of the story was too long and drawn out The 520 page story could have used substantial trimming Also the ending in particular seemed a bit ridiculous with a deus ex machina rescue and lackluster ideas of what happened to the characters The story really doesn t have a good resolution There were also a lot of mystical occurrences that I didn t like involving dreams and other woo wooI am sad that this book didn t meet any of me basic expectations I do think I could read the author s potential future books but I think I would have to read reviews of them first before committing to the timeSo lastly Thank you Saga PressCheck out me other reviews at

Download Ó Do You Dream of Terra Two? Í PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Enagers who’ve trained for this mission most of their lives It will take the team twenty three years to reach Terra Two Twenty three years locked in close uarters Twenty three years with no one to rely on but each other Twenty three years with no rescue possible should something go wrong And something always goes wrong. Do You Dream of Terra Two is set during our lifetime but in a world in which space exploration has advanced much further than in our own There have already been successful human missions to Mars and Europa and now the ultimate goal is being frantically pursuedTerra Two is an Earth like planet light years away uninhabited but with atmosphere geology and natural resources suited for human life With advanced technology it will be possible for an initial expedition to reach Terra Two with a 23 year flightThe UKSA United Kingdom Space Agency is leading the way and they ve come up with a controversial approach Train children from the age of 11 or 12 in an intensely competitive learning environment so that by age 18 when the expedition is ready to launch there will be a crew with a senior team and a younger generation in training After all even if they launch as teens they ll be in their 40s by the time they land And once they land it will be their role to prepare Terra Two for the colonists coming after themAs the book opens we meet the students at Dalton Academy the space training institution They re all fiercely smart but motivated by different dreams and goals There s the rich pretty boy who s the all star athlete who seems to have the easiest most cushioned life the twins who each have secret dreams and desires motivating them the beautiful girl who speaks over 20 languages but has her own demons and When an unexpected tragedy occurs the day before launch the remaining crew is thrown into tumult and a last minute substitute is both elated at his opportunity and miserable over feeling like he ll never be accepted or be good enoughThe book really gets going once the mission has launched One striking element is how well we readers get a sense of the practically unbearable claustrophobia and monotony of being stuck in a contained vessel with the same small group of people FOR DECADES Can you imagine how awful that must be knowing that these other nine people are the only ones you ll ever see or interact with for twenty three years I don t know how they could manage to not go completely bonkers It s not a spoiler to say that there are some pretty spectacular meltdowns and conflicts along the way these are high strung teens after allThe plot of Do You Dream of Terra Two is fascinating and thrilling I m a sucker for a good space story and I loved reading about the terror and the challenges of prolonged space flight as well as the intricate interpersonal relationships that ensue when you have a small group in an enclosed space for such a long timeI did feel that the book was possibly longer than it needed to be At 500 pages it s a lot and sections dragged Again I don t feel it s a particular spoiler to say that the book does not cover all 23 years but rather focuses on the lead up to launch and mainly the first year after that but it does wrap up in a way that s both hopeful and satisfying although one character s conclusion particularly bothered me but that s by intentionIs it realistic that a space agency would train teens in this way and then send them into space Well maybe not but even in this book we see that this is a controversial program that leads to international inuiries and protests And because these are teens despite their advanced training there are moments of disobedience rule breaking and emotional upset that wouldn t occur with a mature crew yet serve here to create some of the drama between characters that drives the storyAll in all I really enjoyed reading Do You Dream of Terra Two and by the halfway point just couldn t put it down It s a great story very unlike anything else I ve read lately and I m really glad I gave it a chance If you like stories of space exploration check this one out Review copy courtesy of the publisher via NetGalley Full review at Bookshelf Fantasies

blurb A century ago scientists theorised that a habitable planet existed in a nearby solar system Today ten astronauts will leave a dying Earth to find it Four are decorated veterans of the 20th century s space race And six are teenagers graduates of the exclusive Dalton Academy who ve been in training for this mission for most of their livesIt will take the team 23 years to reach Terra Two Twenty three years spent in close uarters Twenty three years with no one to rely on but each other Twenty three years with no rescue possible should something go wrong And something always goes wrongDo You Dream of Terra Two is a sci fi novel that uses an alternative history to tell the story of how humanity hopes to populate a far flung habitable planet named Terra Two because our own earth is slowly dying The book uses alternate viewpoints of the six youngest crew members of the spaceship Damocles to tell us the story of this space flight to another solar system These six characters are graduates of a prestigious school that trained only the brightest and the best with one target in mind that of taking to the skies for the twenty three year mission to Terra Two This is very much a slow burning read that focuses a lot on character rather than action In the beginning it s a little difficult to fully engage with each of the six characters because the points of view are never written directly from the first person perspective However ultimately I really liked this style of narrative and found that it actually really works to tell this particular story The slight detachment from the characters really added to the closed atmosphere of the spaceship environment and heightened many of the tensions that came to fruition with living in such close uarters to other people I very much enjoyed that each of the main characters were uietly flawed and were not always likeable And I liked how each of the characters had their own story arc relevant to their personalities and how by the end I truly felt like I had been on a journey with them I did think that perhaps the book was a little too long at times especially as the real action of the book didn t happen until the 70% mark and this is a book with than 500 pages However I wasn t ever bored once and was always 100% invested in the storyline I m a big fan of the ending of the book It leaves room for the reader to imagine endings they might themselves imagine for each of the characters but without leaving the ending too open ended I was very moved by some of the actions of the main characters during the last few pages and had to wipe away a few tears as I closed the book Recommended to those who like slow burning character studies four stars An e copy of this book was kindly provided to me by the
