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. . . .

Was unsure if I would enjoy the story but I loved it! I hope the rest of the series continues in the same style.

This was an interesting read that sparks sociology and even economic thought. Other than Lobsang though all other characters were dry and 2d. They were just props for Lobsang.

It's not Good Omens quality
October 22nd, 2013
I expected Good Omens, minus angels & demons, plus steampunk. Was I mistaken. While the book is above average, it doesn't quite rise to excellent. It reads like a Jules Verne classic - explorers out cataloging the unknown. Disappointingly, there were few points of humor, despite Sir Pratchett being involved.
