In THE LONG EARTH, there are millions upon millions of parallel earths that are accessible just by “stepping” into them. When people start migrating to these new earths, it’s not surprising that problems develop. Michael Fenton-Stevens gives an excellent performance, though the less-than-stellar writing drags him down during the first half of the book. His verve finally kicks in when the story focuses on the journey of Joshua Valiennté and an A.I. named Lobsang as they attempt to reach the final alternate world. One does wish that Fenton-Stevens had given the many Wisconsinite characters appropriate accents instead of generic American voices. But in most parts of the story his English accents works well.
