Beschreibung

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 in the trees. Where has the mud, blood and blasted landscape of No Man's Land gone?

2015: Madison, Wisconsin. Cop Monica Jansson is exploring the burned-out home of a reclusive (some said mad, others dangerous) scientist when she finds a curious gadget - a box containing some wiring, a three-way switch and a...potato. It is the prototype of an invention that will change the way Mankind views his world for ever.

And that is an understatement if ever there was one...

"An absorbing collaborative effort from two SF giants...a marriage made in fan heaven - Pratchett's warmth and humanity allied to Baxter's extraordinarily fertile science-fictional imagination...there's much to enjoy...a charming, absorbing and somehow spacious piece of imagineering" Adam Roberts GUARDIAN 20120623

"An absorbing collaborative effort from two SF giants...a marriage made in fan heaven - Pratchett's warmth and humanity allied to Baxter's extraordinarily fertile science-fictional imagination...there's much to enjoy...a charming, absorbing and somehow spacious piece of imagineering" -- Adam Roberts GUARDIAN "The idea of parallel Earths is one of the most enduring that science fiction has given us, but rarely has it been explored with quite so much gusto as in this new novel by two of the giants of British speculative fiction...a triumph...accessible, fun and thoughtful" -- David Barnett INDEPENDENT "***** Literary alchemy...In the hands of Pratchett and Baxter, the possibilites are almost infinite...a story that revels in big ideas...you can sense the excitement of the authors as they toy with the labyrinthine possibilities of their premise, and it's infectious...thrillingly expansive, joyously inventive and utterly engrossing" SFX "[Pratchett] succeeds in working seamlessly with Baxter...adding a welcome shot of fun to the world of science fiction" -- Alison Flood SUNDAY TIMES "Wonderfully rich fantasy, full of ingenuity, humour and some rather deep thoughts" READERS' DIGEST

Adventurous science fiction
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 20.08.2017
Bewertet: Einband: gebundene Ausgabe

I really enjoyed reading this book. I liked particularly the setting of the story as well as the main characters. For Pratchett fans: the long earth series is more serious than the discworld series (though I did not yet read many of them).
