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. . . .
Not the type of book you would expect from Terry Pratchett, but well worth the read for any Pratchett fan.
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.
Perhaps one of my all-time favorite books (and I have read many). I'll admit that the plot and characters can be a little strange and hard to follow. Read morePublished 6 days ago by Nathan Woodbury
Great concept, interesting to read, could have easily been five stars but the plot just doesn't go anywhere. Nothing happens. Ultimately pointless.Published 11 days ago by Billy

An amusing mashup between a (more or less) hard SF writer and a (to me) beloved Fantasy writer. I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Read morePublished 25 days ago by John H. Weiss
I would give it 2.5 stars if I could. One of those books you keep reading hoping SOMETHING big will happen... and it never really does. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Kacula
