The Long Earth

The Long Earth - Stephen Baxter, Terry Pratchett Well, I can't say as I'd ever pick up another book in this series, but I *did* enjoy this book.

I haven't read a lot of Pratchett or Baxter, so I had no true standards or expectations going into it. I think that helped.

The one big thing that bothers me about The Long Earth is that it... rambles. You end up wondering if its ever going to get to the point, and when it does get to the point, its so anticlimactic that it feels like it didn't actually happen.

It was a good book. It was just not a book that gave you a feeling of satisfaction or accomplishment when you were done reading it.

Sorry I can't be more specific. The premise was fantastic, the execution was just a step or three above mediocre.
