2.0 out of 5 stars OK I guess...but not great, 16 Sept. 2013
This review is from: The Long War: (Long Earth 2) (The Long Earth) (Kindle Edition)
I read The Long Earth when it was released...I thought it was a fantastic concept...but it was just...so...slow! But it did enough to make me want to read part two. And my comment would be that The Long War is just...so...slow!!
Chapter after chapter goes by and it just feels like it's constantly building up to something big. A really long slow build up that took all of book one and now all of book two! I just kept reading expecting something to go "boom" and I'd let out a gasp at the explosive event...but it just doesn't happen. The book plods along with little events here and there, promising much but then just ending.
Maybe it will all become clear in book three? To be honest if this had been written by any other author I think I would have stopped reading after the first few chapters. But it's a Pratchett and therefore deserves to be finished. And it's for that reason I'm pretty sure I'll order the third part when it's available.
