The Long Mars


29th May 2015

"The Long Mars"
By: Terry Pratchett & Stephen Baxter

I didn't enjoy this book as much as I would have liked. The big problem I found is that it seems to ignore the "plot" most of the time and just sent most of the book looking at different versions of the long Earth as one group tries to beat the "records" set in previous books and reach 250,000,000 Earths away from the original home Earth and another group started to do the same process on the long Mars. I've found them to be too light on actual action and plot away from exploring the various long worlds, making it too much of the same thing over and over again. Which makes it increasingly dull, regardless of how well written the books are.
