A sadly disappointing follow-up,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Long War: (Long Earth 2) (The Long Earth) (Kindle Edition)
Having enjoyed The Long Earth, I'd been looking forward to reading this - however, I struggled to finish it, it was such a disappointment.
The book laboured over re-establishing the characters and re-visiting the plot, and had none of the freshness and wonder of the first book. Indeed, the old characters seemed washed-out and uninteresting, while the new ones really didn't establish themselves.
On the basis of this sequel, this doesn't feel like an idea with legs.
