I finished the long earth yesterday and came to see what others thought and in many respects i agree the long earth has an incredibly novel premise but a storyline that in the end doesnt really go anywhere no pun intended. The long earth is the first novel in a collaborative science fiction series by british authors terry pratchett and stephen baxter plot summary the long earth is a possibly infinite series of parallel worlds that are similar to earth which can be reached by using an inexpensive device called a stepper . The long earth is the solid start of a series with infinite potential shelf awareness the writing is elegant and wittythe worlds of the long earth are all richly rendered and even the walk on characters are deftly imaginedand the potential seems endless not just for the characters but for pratchett and baxter as well. The long earth is sooo long faced you might not get the sudden ambush jokes like a rake in the grass or the extended set pieces remember pyramids not many do but you would expect the odd wry comment but nada i read it out of interest to see what had been done but i feel that it is a commercial exploitation of the tp brand. The long earth is the first installment of the long earth series written by stephen baxter and terry pratchett it was published in the uk on june 21 2012 and two days earlier june 19 in the us
