Perhaps more Baxter than Pratchett, The Long Earth has a strong sci-fi slant compared to the hilarious Discworld series. Sometimes that witty voice of Pratchett breaks through the text though and I found myself comforted via those glimpses of familiarity. I enjoyed the start of this series, but I do like a dose of sci-fi now and then. If you’re a Pratchett fan but not so much of a sci-fi one, I am not sure what you may make of this. The premise, though, is fascinating, and I look forward to reading the rest of the books in this series.
