If you’ve read Terry Pratchett’s novel The Long Earth, then this guide will help you understand what you’re reading!
The Long Earth has been compared to the works of writers, like H.G. Wells and Terry Pratchett.
The Long Earth has been compared to the works of writers, like H.G. Wells and Terry Pratchett. While these comparisons are not surprising, it is interesting to see how they relate to each other in terms of both content and form.
H G Wells’ work in science fiction combines social commentary with fictional narratives that explore new ideas about society, technology and culture; his novels often focus on themes such as war or politics but also include references to scientific advances such as space travel or atomic energy (which were not yet discovered when he wrote). These tropes can be found throughout The Long Earth too: for example, there is an element of exploration where humanity discovers new lands after travelling through time via teleporting devices similar to those used by aliens in Star Trek!
The protagonist of this book is a man named Joshua Valiente.
The protagonist of this book is a man named Joshua Valiente. He’s a young man with a troubled past, who has been through a lot in his life: he has been through hardship and pain, but also learned some important lessons along the way. He is also gifted with an amazing intellect, but he doesn’t know it yet—he just thinks he’s smart because he knows how to solve puzzles or do math equations quickly.
He has strong feelings toward justice and the moral compass that guides him when making decisions (and not always choosing the easiest path). This sense of right or wrong means that when faced with difficult situations where there are no easy answers or justifications for doing something wrong as opposed to right could cause him great distress if not outright despair at times; however despite these struggles every day remains full of hope despite these difficulties which helps keep everyone else going too!
The book deals with the concept that there are multiple earths, stacked on top of each other in various directions.
In the book, there are multiple earths stacked on top of each other in various directions. The Long Earth is a kind of fictional universe created by science fiction author Terry Pratchett and his long-time collaborator Stephen Baxter. The series consists of four novels and three spinoffs set in this world:
- Long War (2004)
- Longitude (2005)
- Silverhair (2006)
- Blood Wedding (2008).
This book is somewhat unique in that it’s told in a non-linear fashion, which can sometimes be confusing to readers who aren’t used to this style of writing.
If you’re not used to reading non-linear books, it may feel like the Long Earth is telling its story in a confusing way. The idea of time travel isn’t new, but this book takes a different approach than most other time travel stories do. It’s told in a non-linear fashion—which means that each chapter begins with an event from one character’s life, but then jumps back and forth through time as they encounter other characters and events before returning to where they started. It can be difficult for readers who aren’t used to this style of storytelling because no two chapters will ever have exactly the same beginning or ending point; some chapters might begin before an event happens (meaning they start earlier than their own location) while others might end after an event has already occurred (meaning they end later than their own location).
In the original publication, it was simply called The Long Earth – but it was later re-released as The Long Earth (Book One) because it is actually the beginning of a series by its author, Terry Pratchett.

The Long Earth is a series of books written by Rich Shailer and Terry Pratchett. In 2004, the first book in their series was released; it was called “The Long War.”
The Long Earth follows up on that work by featuring another planet where humans can live without being confined to Earth’s gravity (or, more specifically: “the long earth”). This new place has different rules than our own planet when it comes to things like time and space travel—it’s possible for people here to move freely between both realities at will.
