    Story
    (284)

    A generation after the events of The Long Earth, humankind has spread across the new worlds opened up by "stepping". A new "America" - Valhalla - is emerging more than a million steps from Datum - our Earth. Thanks to a bountiful environment, the Valhallan society mirrors the core values and behaviors of colonial America. And Valhalla is growing restless under the controlling long arm of the Datum government.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Long War in three words, what would they be?

    Out of mythology


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Long War?

    So many cool scenes, but not one that stole the show.


    Have you listened to any of Michael Fenton Stevens’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Another strong performance by Michael F. Stevens. His return to the Long Earth was well done.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I couldn't stop listening, I devoured this book as quickly as life would allow.


    Any additional comments?

    The exploration of the varied denizens of the Long Earth kept the Long War engaging all the way through. Everything made a kind of sense, from an alien perspective.

    At first, only a few things are known about the celestial object that astronomers dub Rama. It is huge, weighing more than ten trillion tons. And it is hurtling through the solar system at inconceivable speed. Then a space probe confirms the unthinkable: Rama is no natural object. It is, incredibly, an interstellar spacecraft. Space explorers and planet-bound scientists alike prepare for mankind's first encounter with alien intelligence.

    Peter Tersteeg says: "Excellent story, terrible naration"
    "Classic Sci-fi, with actual science."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Rendezvous with Rama to be better than the print version?

    The audio version is amazing, the performers do a good job at evoking the scale and tension of exploring the alien artifact.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The unraveling mysteries, the science explained or alluded to.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    There goes the neighborhood.
