But Who'll Sarah Fee?

It occurred to me yesterday that my favorite thing to do - read a book while I'm eating - is just a combination of reading and eating. Bo-ring. I'm boring.

The Long Earth - Terry Pratchett, Stephen Baxter A 200 page story told in 400 pages. It starts out promising... But the pace is excruciatingly slow, and the characters aren't as fleshed out as you'd like. There are so many things that could have happened here, but all we did was... cruise. Was there even an ending? Was there even a middle?

I unknowingly bought the sequel before this one, so I'll probably end up reading it eventually, although I wouldn't consider it otherwise.
