Book Review: “The Long Earth” by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter

The main bulk of the story is Lobsang and Joshua traveling westward and discovering the various life-forms that have developed in the Long Earth. As they go, they discover that something is upsetting the higher-order creatures, forcing them eastward (toward the Datum), and take it upon themselves to figure out exactly what’s causing it and if they can stop it.
