READ The Long Utopia

Aczyna rozumieć wagę tego co dzieje się pod powierzchnią jego świata – i zagraża wszystkim światom Długiej Ziemi Aby z tym walczyć potrzebne są połączone wysiłki ludzkości maszyny i superinteligentnych Następnych A niektórzy muszą złożyć ostateczną ofiaręCzwarta część bestsellerowej serii autorstwa mistrza fantasy Terry'ego Pratchetta oraz Stephena Baxtera. Something of a return to form for this series that by the end of the third instalment had threatened to become a colossal waste of time and effort Gone is the multiple vignette style of book three added is a fair dose of Baxter s scientific imagination and explanation replaced is the inevitable conclusion in favour of an unexpected denouement that whilst still sueezed in to the same number of words as a description of a forest I exaggerate is at least moving the story in a new direction even if that new direction is aimed at simply selling the final instalment Baxter isn t known for his characterisation and here at least he seems to recognise that letting the universe he created with Terry Pratchett do much of the lifting and resisting the urge to speechify in expositionary tones if not all the time then for large chunks of story I started to think of the seuence in terms of Asimov s original Foundation trilogy and whilst not set over such a vast timeframe or with an evolving cast of protagonists the same crew from the previous books all seem to return here it does perhaps seem to have the same goal The end section as BaxterPratchett describe events on the Earth of New Springfield is probably some of the best writing in the series and dark too when coupled with the Granny WeatherwaxShepherd Crown spoiler I couldn t avoid I suspect that this holds an insight in to the mood of our beloved dying author

The Long Utopia

Pringfield – adoptowali nawet dziecko Wydaje się jednak że nie trafili tam przypadkiem Krążą pogłoski o dziwnych zjawiskach na niebie o strachach Coś jest w tym świecie nie tak Miliony kroków od tego miejsca Joshua dowiaduje się o ojcu którego nigdy nie znał i odkrywa sekretną historię rodziny Nagle niespodziewanie otrzymuje pilne wezwanie z New Springfield Lobsang z. This series of books makes me incredibly angry It is a demonstration of the bizarre reaction that happens when you combine two authors who seemingly balance each other very well Instead of fascinating science fiction concepts from Baxter with the exceptional character development from Pratchett you get uninspired characters from Baxter whose work is rife with flat unbelievable people and boring rehashed SF ideas from Pratchett who is far better known for his use of wit than his ground breaking ideasThese two took an idea for a series that was by no means revolutionary and instead of making it special with their uniue skills as an author they just continued to force out tired over written and under plotted drivel For a interesting look at people with the ability to step between parallel earths try The Family Trade by Charles Stross and for a better version of the characters in this series try any other bookThe plot drifts hither and yon with no regards for the basic concepts of pacing or linearity or even a conscious disregard for linearity The story collects characters like loose change and spends their lives in twee attempts to engender some emotional attachment to a story which ultimately delivers nothing in the way of real awe or amazement While studded with creatures and places which could be fascinating or terrifying the story simply doesn t give them the time to shine in any meaningful sense leading to feeling of unreality about place which the authors want us to be able to imagine vividly Over and over villains or disasters are built up only to be entirely undercut by the next book or brushed under a rug by a deus ex machina This lack of suspense serves only to limit any empathy we might have for the frail shells of the almost human feeling protagonistsThe Long Earth had potential Each book had enough plot points for 3 books and enough characters for 10 while paradoxically containing enough personality for 12 a book These authors didn t need time or skill they needed a good fucking editor who isn t afraid to tell two super star writers that they were putting out rubbish

I am not sure why I left it so long between book 3 and this one but luckily I still had a good memory of what went before There is nothing worse when reading a series than forgetting who did what to who in the earlier booksI really enjoyed The Long Utopia I think I now have my head around stepping and millions of parallel worlds I even coped with Lobsang moving from one body to another and working alongside one of his own alternate selves I was upset with what happened to Sally Stan and the catThere is a lot of explanation in this book We find out some of the history of natural steppers and start to understand about the Next We also experience an alien invasion of amazing proportions There is out there outside the Long EarthI will not wait so long before reading book 5

    This is such an odd series it's slow and rather uneventful but ultimately very enjoyable Of all the thought provoking series I've read in the last decade this one has kept me up at night thinking the most The idea of stepping of a endless necklace of interconnected worlds is just so satisfying And TP and SB have really spent their time talkin
