2040-2045: In the years after the cataclysmic Yellowstone eruption there is massive economic dislocation as populations flee Datum Earth to myriad Long Earth worlds. Sally, Joshua, and Lobsang are all involved in this perilous rescue work when, out of the blue, Sally is contacted by her long-vanished father and inventor of the original Stepper device, Willis Linsay. He tells her he is planning a fantastic voyage across the Long Mars and wants her to accompany him. But Sally soon learns that Willis has an ulterior motive for his request. . . .

Meanwhile U. S. Navy Commander Maggie Kauffman has embarked on an incredible journey of her own, leading an expedition to the outer limits of the far Long Earth.

For Joshua, the crisis he faces is much closer to home. He becomes embroiled in the plight of the Next: the super-bright post-humans who are beginning to emerge from their “long childhood” in the community called Happy Landings, located deep in the Long Earth. Ignorance and fear have caused “normal” human society to turn against the Next. A dramatic showdown seems inevitable. . .

Sad but true. I so want to like this one. And I didn't. More than 200 pages in, and nothing much happen at all. The characters are bland and boring. I don't care much if some accident happened to them in the Gap and they all disappeared into the Gap. That's how much I don't care about them....

3.5 The Long Mars - Terry Pratchett;Stephen Baxter
Once again, the great strength of the series is the wealth of ideas: an infinite number of Earths, and now, an infinite number of Marses, as well. That part is fun.Weaknesses: well, there's not a lot of opportunity for character development, the book is distinctly British, even though it's primarily...
