Publisher's Summary

The years 2040 - 2045: 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 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 ulterior motives....
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 are causing 'normal' human society to turn against the Next - and a dramatic showdown seems inevitable....

More Baxter than Pratchett?

Would you listen to The Long Mars again? Why?

No, it jumped around all over the place and had no narrative drive.

Has The Long Mars put you off other books in this genre?

This series yes: the characters have lost their sense of identity and drive and now see to wander aimlessly from scene to scene.

What about Michael Fenton Stevens’s performance did you like?

He's great - accents, complex dialogue, emotion, all there and brilliantly executed.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, too long.

Any additional comments?

For me this is the last episode of the Long Earth series. A stunning start, but the momentum has gone and I'm not sure we care about any of the characters enough to pick up the next volume

Nothing new really.

Not going to write much, but for me the story seems to have lost direction now and is becoming a bit repetitive and if I am honest it is getting a bit boring, the whole thing is starting to seem a bit pointless and endless, there are just too many avenues to go down.
