Rated 5 out of 5 by from A satisfying end to a long (earth) journey! The culmination of the Long Earth series, as co-written by the late Sir Terry Pratchett, this 5th and final book in the "Long Earth" series does provide a satisfying––even cathartic––ending to the tory, although it is bittersweet, knowing this will be Sir Terry's last work.
