about

The UK's bestselling fantasy writer and a giant of British SF combine forces to write an astonishing, mind-bending new series... The Long Earth.
 
2015: Madison, Wisconsin. Junior cop Sally Jansson is called out to the house of Willis Lynsey, a reclusive scientist, for an animal-cruelty complaint: the man was seen forcing a horse in through the door of his home. Inside there is no horse. But Sally finds a kind of home-made utility belt. She straps this on -- and 'steps' sideways into an America covered with virgin forest. Willis came here with equipment and animals, meaning to explore and colonise. And when Sally gets back, she finds Willis has put the secret of the belt on the internet. The great migration has begun...
 
The Long Earth: our Earth is but one of a chain of parallel worlds, lying side by side in a higher space of possibilities, each differing from its neighbours by a little (or a lot): an infinite landscape of infinite possibilities. And the further away you travel, the stranger the worlds get. The sun and moon always shine, the basic laws of physics are the same. However, the chance events which have shaped our particular version of Earth, such as the dinosaur-killer asteroid impact, might not have happened and things may well have turned out rather differently. But only our Earth hosts mankind.
TERRY PRATCHETT is one of the most popular authors writing today.

He is the author of the phenomenally successful Discworld series and his trilogy for young reader...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Imaginative Journey, I enjoyed it completely I really enjoyed this story and found it extremely interesting. The main characters are basically travelling (or 'stepping') from one Planet Earth to another in a world where an endless number of planet Earths are discovered. As each Earth is slightly different from the last, you don't know what you will discover on each one and the basis for this story leaves it open for more books to follow (which is already the case with the sequel, The Long War). Along the way, our main characters discover new species and environments that are mysterious and sometimes dangerous. It leaves the imagination to run wild with the possibilities of what can be discovered on each 'step' taken...5 stars for sure.
