Product description

Review

"Inspired . . . something of the poetry and visionary wildness of an author such as Jeff VanderMeer . . . enthralling and thought-provoking in equal measure." (Ned Denny DAILY MAIL)

"Intricately described . . . gently immersive . . . Baxter's scientific grounding will make you dwell once more on that chilling quantum idea that to exist is to be observed . . . if you've been following the series from the beginning, this last chapter will make you cry, all on its own." (Jenny Colgan GUARDIAN)

"One of the unexpected delights of the later Pratchett career . . . a novel that comes across as a love letter to science fiction itself, one suffused with a Clarke-like optimism about the future. Baxter, you'd guess, is saluting two old friends here." (Jonathan Wright SFX magazine)

"A fine and fitting testament to the work of one of our greatest and much-missed writing legends, and a reminder that in the likes of Stephen Baxter, British science fiction remains in safe-hands." (David Barnett THE i NEWSPAPER)

Book Description

The No.1 bestseller The Long Cosmos is the grand finale of Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter's acclaimed 'Long Earth' sequence. Terry had always wanted to explore the question ‘what’s it all for?’ - and in this novel, we find an answer . . .

This is the fifth of a series
Read this series in order it is often backwards referential
I loved it but then I love everything by Terry Pratchett
This is not similar to the Discworld series books
It is science fiction in the thoughtful vein
Nice original idea developed through varying scenarios

A satisfactory finish to the series.
This edition is an unusual tall narrow format and the text is too far into the fold of the book. Makes for unpleasant reading.

Excellent finale for this series. Good and detailed plot and the pace was about right. We are all now familiar and even fond of the characters and sorry to see them go. Excellent writing of course. I wish there was a follow on series. Highly Recommended.

Have now read all 5 books in this series - I struggled with number 3 (The Long Mars) but I am very glad I carried on. Long Cosmos is an easy read I didn't want to put it down. Sad in parts but also some happy moments . A shame it had to end at 5.

I read the whole long earth series back to back. I didn't mean to but after reading The Long Earth and getting my head around the concept then I was hooked and just had to read them all. Baxter and Pratchett are some team.

Dragged on a lot compared to the earlier ones and spends too much time on mushy sentimentality and the Sancho troll character. Hoo? I hear me say. Four fifths through the book and only two things seem to have happened.

It might have been set-up for a meek sequel but was full of fresh ideas while keeping old favourites current.
