1916: The Western Front. Private Percy Blakeney wakes up. He is lying on fresh spring grass. He can hear birdsong and the wind in the leaves. Where have the mud, blood, and blasted landscape of no-man's-land gone? For that matter, where has Percy gone?
2015: Madison, Wisconsin. Police officer Monica Jansson is exploring the burned-out home of a reclusive—some say mad, others allege dangerous—scientist who seems to have vanished. Sifting through the wreckage, Jansson find a curious gadget: a box containing some rudimentary wiring, a three-way switch, and . . . a potato. It is the prototype of an invention that will change the way humankind views the world forever.
The first novel in an exciting new collaboration between Discworld creator Terry Pratchett and the acclaimed SF writer Stephen Baxter, The Long Earth transports readers to the ends of the earth—and far beyond. All it takes is a single step. . . .
Anyone who has enjoyed Terry Pratchett's previous works will enjoy this book.
It's well written , has some engaging characters, a good plot line that is interesting, but it also goes on and on at times about nothing.
I do not like getting to the end of the book and wondering whether the publisher just left of the last chapters by mistake.
Science fiction and philosophy packaged in a thriller format superbly executed with hints of Prachettian humor to lighten the mood. Read morePublished 16 hours ago by Amazon Customer
Not what is expected if one is a Discworld fan, but still a good read. It is a new look at us and how we handle new situations, sometimes good, sometimes not so well. Read morePublished 4 days ago by joseph k phillips
As an avid long time TP fan I have to say with regret that this is not vintage stuff and I wonder about just how much input TP was able to have. Read morePublished 11 days ago by Amazon Customer
I like Stephen Baxter! His science is good and he thinks BIG. But this book is so disappointing!! The stepping science is weak. East and west makes no sense. Read morePublished 15 days ago by Larry Voyer
