Day fourteen, what is the last book you read? What was it about? Do you recommend it?
The Long Earth by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter.
I’m going to try not to give too much away, but essentially, “parallel earths” are indeed a reality, and they are fairly easily accessible with the use of a potato-powered machine you can build yourself!
While the story mainly follows one character, Joshua Valienté, they also tell how the “original” earth is affected financially, politically and culturally by the sudden exodus of millions of people.
I LOVED it! Where it usually takes me MONTHS to finish a book, I couldn’t put this one down! I am a huge Pterry fan as it is, but this book fascinated me. I couldn’t wait to see where they were going with the plot line.
And there’s a sequel!
If you’re a SciFi fan, you’ll love it. I told my Glugster as much when I was reading it and its just taken him less than a week to read it himself!
