    "Terry Pratchett is best known for his work with the Discworld series. However, I think he is a better author than that. I wanted to read books by him that weren't from this series. The Long Earth, while written collaboratively, exhibited many of the qualities that I loved from the Discworld series. This book has a beautiful setting and is written in the Terry Pratchett style to which I am accustomed. "

    "Excellent read if you're a cat lover like me! I cannot say enough about how hilariously well written this book was. Plus, if you're like me, and love animals but are not vegetarian or hard core PETA level, this makes you take a look at how we human treat and commodify animals."

    "A super easy read, and It ended up developing in ways I didn't anticipate, which thrilled me. . I'll recommend it to my own son when he turns 12. It might be a bit heavy for younger readers as the home life of the characters in the book is rather unfortunate and depressing and although they might not quite pick up on that."

    "While I am a huge fan of Pratchett's Discworld tales, I decided to try a different type of his stories. I was not disappointed! The book manages to keep the same feel Pratchett is known for, while introducing a new world and new characters. It shows that he can still write amazing dialogue and environments without leaning on his well known characters. "

    "After reading all of Discworld novels, I found myself once again pining for the classic feel of a Pratchett novel, and so I finally decided to try out some of his non-Discworld titles. The Long Earth series was the first on my list, and I was extremely pleased with what I found. The Long Mars is certainly a great addition to the series, and I recommend it for any fan."

    "A Slip of the Keyboard provides a window into Terry Pratchett's mind. This volume provides insight into the motivations and feelings that influenced his better known fictional works. Here, as always, Pratchett is a master of words. I enjoyed it thoroughly and it certainly must be one of the author's best non-Discworld works."
