The possibilities are endless. (Just be careful what you wish for. . . .) 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. . . .

1.0 The Long Earth
This feels more like Stephen Baxter listened in on Terry Pratchett mumbling his ideas with his ear to a glass as opposed to them being in the same room together. I tried my hardest to like it; Pratchett is my favourite author and his Discworld series are undeniably beautiful. Disappointing, but when...

5.0 The Long Earth by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter
The storyline of "The Long Earth" was fairly simple, but the underlying meaning of it was as deep and infinite as you can imagine. The concept that there could be parallel earths and what that really means actually kept me up at night. Just thinking about the possibilities... The problems... The rea...

3.0 The Long Earth
3.5Though it feels in many parts like an awkward blend of The Hitch-hiker's Guide and The Time Machine, but lacking in Adams' trademark humour and oddities (and Pratchett's, come to think of it) The Long Earth is still an interesting read. Focusing on ideas rather than plot has been pretty unusual i...

Wir schreiben das Jahr 2015, und nichts ist mehr so wie es war. Denn heute tauchte im Netz ein Bauplan auf um ein sich ein mysteriöses Teil zu bauen, welches sich "Der Wechsler" nennt. Dieses Kästchen, das mehr als nur simpel ist wird durch eine Batterie aus einer Kartoffel betrieben, soll jedem Men...
