1916: The Western Front. Private Percy Blakeney wakes up. He is lying on fresh spring grass. He can hear birdsong and the wind in the leaves. Where have the mud, blood, and blasted landscape of no-man's-land gone? For that matter, where has Percy gone? 2015: Madison, Wisconsin. Police officer Monica Jansson is exploring the burned-out home of a reclusive--some say mad, others allege dangerous--scientist who seems to have vanished. Sifting through the wreckage, Jansson find a curious gadget: a box containing some rudimentary wiring, a three-way switch, and a potato. It is the prototype of an invention that will change the way humankind views the world forever. The "stepper" enables a person using it to step sideways into another America, another wherever that person happened to be, another Earth. And if the person using it keeps on stepping, they keep on entering even more Earths. This is the Long Earth. And the further away a stepper travels, the stranger -- and sometimes more dangerous -- the Earths become.… (mere)

I definitely enjoyed reading the book, especially the parts that explored differing evolutionary paths. But if you're like me and get annoyed with every book being part of a 50 book series, you may not want to pick this one up, as very little is wrapped up at the end. If you're ok with that then go for it, though, because it was still worth the read. ( )

I make absolutely no excuses for not finishing this book. Any book that's this boring after more than 100 pages deserves all it gets. The characters are very forgetable and I find I have no interest in finding out what they will get up to at any point in the future. If this is the first in a series of books about the long earth, it's no excuse to claim that maybe we should give it a chance and wait for the next one to see If things improve. If a novel hasn't grabbed me by the time I'm 25% or more into it then I'm very much afraid it simply isn't going to and the authors should be grateful I gave it that much of a chance before casting it aside.

Not good. It's tedious, the characters are bland and uninteresting, and quite frankly, endless worlds with no people in them was never going to make for a good story in my view. This is a book that should never have made it past the starting post. ( )

I just finished this on Audible and started volume II. I recently read Lionel Shriver's The Mandibles which was about another great recession (a greater recession). This book has some parallels, economically speaking, with today. The Long Earth reduces the labor supply on the Datum. W/diminishing resources, we likely have reduced supply and likely a low if not negative global growth. I am sure there are radical economic theories based on contracting supply and demand being the source of demise for a capitalist system, but one doesn't have to be a skeptic of the system to realize that it works best with positive economic growth if not numbers usually larger than the numbers we see today. This book, like The Mandibles, will suggests negative numbers and as such gives us a hint of what life might in an era of stagnation. I like how they use older computers. Newer technology, which today we adopt ever faster (my smart phones keep getting smarter!), may lose out to an older system that were stable and mature and wouldn't depend on modifications. I imagine a flip phone relying on 2nd generation tech would last into this sort of uncertain future better than a 4G LTE of today. I find that kind of cool. Forget FB, does anyone still use IRC Chat?

The Long Earth is a short read: the pages riffle past and there's much to enjoy. The dialogue is a bit Hollywood 101, and much of it is characters explaining things to other characters, sometimes at great length ("Why are you telling me all this?" Joshua asks at one point, with apparent ingenuousness). But it's a charming, absorbing and somehow spacious piece of imagineering for all that.
