The Western Front, 1916. 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?

Madison, Wisconsin, 2015. 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. . . .

Listener Opinions

    " My interest fizzled out after about 250 pages. The premise was good but the meager plot plodded along and I ceased to care about the characters. "

    " It could have been much better. The potential for the story is unlimited, just add The Long Earth. But the storyline just tackles slightly some of the possibilities, leaving much to desire. In the end, it's too flat, too simple, too one dimensional, while in the same time drawing from too many ideas in the same time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Aaron Rosenberg | 1/6/2014

    " This was a fun, pleasant, easy read. The concept is great. The characters aren't particularly sympathetic, though, and there's very little tension. Or action. Nor is there any humor--which is fine, since this isn't a Discworld novel or marketed as humorous, but Pratchett's style feels a little empty without the humor laced in to support it. "

    " The short extract from the 'High Meggas' was more enjoyable in style than the main book. An interesting idea but padded out into a whole book was not as good as I would have expected. Perhaps I've read too many Discworld novels "
