4.0 out of 5 stars A cracking read with some flaws
Despite this book reading like a Stephen Baxter greatest hits retrospective (I half expected the Xeelee to turn up) it was actually a very enjoyable read. Sally becomes much less obnoxious in this book, perhaps under the humanising influence of Mr Pratchett. There are still loathsome individuals however which makes the story more fun. The Next for example are Wrath of...

2.0 out of 5 stars The long, long book
I'm a big fan of both pratchett and Baxter and have stuck with this series since it started, but this one left me frustrated and unsatisfied.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)

5.0 out of 5 stars slower paced than the previous long earth books but just as magnificent, 23 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)

4.0 out of 5 stars Further along, 30 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)

First two book were great. This one I found was almost a repetition of the first book. Did not feel as engaged or compelled to read the next chapter. Felt like a tired formula

Bought for Husband. Speedy delivery. Very pleased. Can't comment on book itself as I haven't read it, but after all, it IS Terry Pratchett, so brilliant read expected.

1.0 out of 5 stars Most disappointed, I couldn't make head or tail of it, 19 Aug 2014
Most disappointed, I couldn't make head or tail of it, in fact i only read a few pages and ordered new books on line to read instead, from Amazon, of course!

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The authors continue to create a world(s?) which is as puzzling as it is amazing. I found this one to be as much fun to read as the first 2 in the series.

Good, but I do sort of get the impression the series is running out of steam a bit. The title is a bit misleading, in terms of the main thrust of the story
