Revue de presse

“Panoramic and fascinating...” (Kirkus)

Présentation de l'éditeur

The third novel in Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter s Long Earth series, which Io9 calls a brilliant science fiction collaboration.

2040-2045: In the years after the cataclysmic Yellowstone eruption there is massive economic dislocation as populations flee Datum Earth to myriad Long Earth worlds. Sally, Joshua, and Lobsang are all involved in this perilous rescue work when, out of the blue, Sally is contacted by her long-vanished father and inventor of the original Stepper device, Willis Linsay. He tells her he is planning a fantastic voyage across the Long Mars and wants her to accompany him. But Sally soon learns that Willis has an ulterior motive for his request . . .

Meanwhile U. S. Navy Commander Maggie Kauffman has embarked on an incredible journey of her own, leading an expedition to the outer limits of the far Long Earth.

For Joshua, the crisis he faces is much closer to home. He becomes embroiled in the plight of the Next: the super-bright post-humans who are beginning to emerge from their long childhood in the community called Happy Landings, located deep in the Long Earth. Ignorance and fear have caused normal human society to turn against the Next. A dramatic showdown seems inevitable . . .

Si le deuxième tome était un poil décevant, le troisième renoue avec le premier en offrant une fenêtre infinie sur l'imaginaire des the Long Earth... et même plus. Ca ferait un film vraiment génial, à condition d'y mettre les moyens !

Not a patch on the first 2 books in the series, this one is tedious and so far-fetched, I am struggling to finish it.

Original, but Average 19 juin 2014
Par T. Edmund - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
When I saw the next 'Long' series was titled The Long Mars, I immediately credited Baxter and Pratchett for at the very least taking the series places unexpected. Since the mildly disappointing Long War, I was somewhat geared for not so much low expectations, but an assumption that Long Mars would follow a similar pattern of the majority of the book being a sort of sociological exploration with a very intense world(s) changing event at the end.

Even with differing expectations this book unfortunately still did not stir much for me. While intriguing the Mars plot simply served as a watered down repeat of the first book (i.e. a lengthy exploration of the many Long Mars) The simultaneous plot-line on the long Earth(s) seemed in fact a direct replica of Long Earth and until the character Paul appeared I was actually struggling to understand what the book was actually about this time.

SPOILERS AHEAD (hard to review without them)

The major plot-line of 'the next' a super-intelligent variation on humans, was quite intriguing. However, there was relatively little page-time devoted to these guys, and most of the time we just heard repeats of their origins explained to different characters in different situations. I got pretty sick of hearing explanations for 'low' and 'high' bulbs

The ultimate climax - a nuclear warhead threatening 'Happy Landings' was almost tense. Once again (you'll notice a theme here) the beat fell flat, when the situation was bizarrely resolved by the main characters having a debate about whether to set it off (I don't think many personalities are such that they would advocate for a nuclear bomb being used to wipe out an entire subspecies, even in fiction)

Which brings me to my ultimate complaint - the characters. Only the barest development of interest occurred briefly for Lobsang, our other well-known folk, Joshua and Agnes (who surely should have had something to think about undergoing the whole transition thing) seemed to just bungle along the storyline with barely a reaction to the plot let-alone experiencing anything too compelling. Some stuff happening for Sally, but honestly who cares about her?

Long Earth rates as one of my most frustrating to read series - I so desperately want there to be a continuation of the themes explored in book one - such as the giant transparent thing - or at least more exploration of Joshua V or even Lobsang. I suspect that I am going to be unhappy though, its hard to see what the authors are hoping to achieve with the series, but it doesn't seem to be working.

The Long Sequel 28 novembre 2014
Par Melanie D. Typaldos - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I love Terry Pratchett so you can imagine how excited I was when I saw he'd written a new science fiction novel. In fact three of them! And what an intriguing title! What could it mean? Ididn't know this Stephen Baxter guy but I figured he was bound to be okay if Terry Pratchett liked him.

Oh, how my hopes were dashed!

I'm writing only one review and putting it on all three books: The Long Earth, The Long War, and The Long Mars. That's because the books are basically indistinguishable. Yes, I read all three because in my excitement, I bought all three. Without reading the reviews. Okay, I'm dumb.

The problem with these books is that they seem to mistake an interesting setting for an interesting story. I agree, the concept of an infinite series of Earths that can be reached, sequentially, by single steps, is new, at least to me. What would happen if such an infinite resource suddenly became available? There's lots of room to explore there, lots of possibilities. But the "characters" in these books don't really interact with these worlds or with each other. In fact, I put characters in quotes because they are simply devices for the authors to move through their imagined universe. They have no depth, no emotion, no lives, no pains, no loves, no fears, no joys. They are viewpoints, sometimes with a little bit of attitude but generally very bland.

And where is the story? There isn't one. At least I can't think of a story other than a dispersed set of people, aliens, and artificial intelligences "explore" an infinite universe which feels basically like one of those old time movie reels where the film is going slowly enough for you to see the images flicker. This happens slowly in the first book, more quickly in the second, and on Mars (and again the Earth) in the third.

By the way, there is no war in The Long War, in case you were thinking that would add excitement. Instead it is supposed to be a look at human interaction with other intelligent species. I think. But if it is, it is not very imaginative or insightful. All the viewpoints presented are the same, "let's be friends." There are other people who don't want to be friends but we never see anything from their POV. And we don't see much, except events, from the main characters viewpoints either.

The Long Mars is especially frustrating because it takes half the book to get to Mars, which turns out to be an even more boring exploration than the Earth was. And, spoiler alert, it ends in a setup for a likely fourth book. Meanwhile back on Earth, the authors demonstrate a classic misunderstanding of evolution while in the same book expounding on what a simple idea it is to grasp once it is explained to you. I'm referring to the spontaneous and timely appearance of a new human species with just the qualities needed to take the human race to the next level. Appropriately, the call themselves the Next. While the books have almost an exclusively American perspective, the Next species is reputed to appear spontaneously around the globe.

There were so many ways to go with this concept, it is disappointing that they didn't choose any of them.

3 stars for The Long Earth: the idea is new and. being the first book, it's not as boring.
2 stars for The Long War: it's more of the same but the writing is not terrible.
1 star for The Long Mars: it's even more of the same and the evolution stuff was just too much for me.

A sense of uniformity 26 juin 2014
Par Tvrtko - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
One more part in the imaginative saga of the Long Earth, this one is (somewhat unfortunately) following the same path as the prior books.

We get ideas and imaginative leaps that are truly magnificent, but that are left by the side without much explanation. Tidbits of mysteries are thrown in, only to be left unresolved. And to top it all off, the ending is, well, bereft of emotional impact (and surprise). The book seems static, which is accentuated by the characters which didn't change any since we last saw them (and this book picks up 4 years after the last one). There is some development (or rather exposition of her past) with Sally, but that's about it.

Once again the book seems like it's setting up something, but what, and how and when we will get to it... A good guess. It was an enjoyable read, but a somewhat frustrating experience.

If you liked the first two books, this one will appeal to you, but do not read this one first. It is very much a Volume 3.

The Long Mars is a bit disappointing 22 juin 2014
Par Gail A. Morden - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Perhaps it's Terry Pratchett's condition that's suffusing The Long Mars with melancholia or perhaps Steven Baxter has just taken over more of the writing -- his books tend toward depressing, unsatisfactory endings. Whatever! This sequel to The Long Earth and The Long War seems to be a bit of a tribute tour with references, both implicit and explicit, to Robert Heinlein, Arthur C. Clark and even some of Terry's earlier work. Too little humor and too much stumbling around on Mars, which just doesn't seem to be worth the trouble. And the introduction of Sally's father as curmudgeon of the year hardly enhances the appeal. Nor do the "Next" who reminded me unfavorable of my grandson's smart alack geek buddies when they were in high school.

A big disappointment compared to the first two (remarkable) books in the series 14 juillet 2014
Par James Robertson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The first two books in this series were a delight! There was a genuine sense of exploration, and I kept turning the pages to see what would happen next. As a life-long sci-fi fan, I loved the first two books.

This book, in comparison, is a huge disappointment.

Yes, there is the traveling, and the strange new worlds. But it's traveling for traveling's sake.

None of the plot elements go anywhere, and nothing really happens of note. Perhaps this book will make sense as a transitional piece for book #4?

Or maybe this is the let's-keep-making-money book, from these two prolific authors.
