Description

An unmissable milestone for fans of Sir Terry Pratchett: the first SF novel in over three decades in which the visionary inventor of Discworld has created a new universe of tantalizing possibilities-a series of parallel "Earths" with doorways leading to adventure, intrigue, excitement, and an escape into the furthest reaches of the imagination. The Long Earth, written with award-winning novelist Stephen Baxter, author of Stone Spring, Ark, and Floodwill, captivate science fiction fans of all stripes, readers of Kurt Vonnegut, Douglas Adams, and Carl Hiaasen, and anyone who enjoyed the Terry Pratchett/Neil Gaiman collaboration Good Omens. The Long Earth is an adventure of the highest order-and an unforgettable read.

Professional reviews

"In THE LONG EARTH, there are millions upon millions of parallel Earths that are accessible just by "stepping" into them. When people start migrating to these new Earths, it's not surprising that problems develop. Michael Fenton-Stevens gives an excellent performance, though the less-than-stellar writing drags him down during the first half of the book. His verve finally kicks in when the story focuses on the journey of Joshua ValienntŽ and an A.I. named Lobsang as they attempt to reach the final alternate world. One does wish that Fenton-Stevens had given the many Wisconsinite characters appropriate accents instead of generic American voices. But in most parts of the story his English accents works well.
