The Long War [book, audiobook]

 The Long War [book, audiobook]

THIS IS THE SECOND LONG EARTH BOOK. I FEEL LIKE THE SERIES WAS ALWAYS SUPPOSED TO BE A SERIES BUT THE FIRST BOOK FELT VERY STAND ALONE AND THIS BOOK HAD A LOT OF "AW GEEZ, WE HAVE TO WRITE FIVE OF THESE" WHERE THIS WAS GOOD, BUT THE SCALE OF THE PLOT WAS SCALED DOWN A TON AND YOU COULD TELL THEY INTENTIONALLY SANDED DOWN A LOT OF THE MORE UNIQUE ELEMENTS OF THE SETTING THAT WOULD HAVE MADE WRITING IT TOO HARD. BUT YOU CAN ALSO THE BAXTER THING OF LIKE, INTRODUCING THINGS LIKE ROBOTS AND PEOPLE BECOMING IMMORTAL BECAUSE I'M SURE BY THE LAST BOOK IT'LL BE THE YEAR TEN QUAJILLION BECAUSE NO GOOD BAXTER SERIES EVER JUST ENDS AFTER A NORMAL AMOUNT OF TIME, HE HAS TO WRITE EXACTLY HOW THINGS WORK OUT TILL THE END OF TIME. 

PS. PRACHETTE WROTE THE SCIENCE OF DISKWORLD BOOKS, HE CAN WRITE THIS SORT OF HARD SCI-FI BUT NOT AS HARD AS BAXTER AND IT WAS FUNNY WHEN YOU COULD NOTICE THEM FIGHTING. LIKE THERE IS A SPECIFIC SCENE SOMEONE IS TRYING TO WATCH HOW THE HIPS OF THE WOLVES WORK AND IT HAPPENS TOO FAST FOR THEM TO FIGURE IT OUT AND YOU CAN JUST IMAGINE STEPHEN BAXTER WITH STEAM COMING OUT HIS EARS DEMANDING TO KNOW HOW QUADRAPED HIPS WOULD ALSO BE BIPEDEAL. ALSO I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEY WENT TO TURTLE PLANET WITH NONE OF THE USUAL WIKIPEDIA EXPLAINER CHARACTER SO SOMEONE LIKE SAW THEM HOLDING TWO WHIPS AND DEDUCED THEIR WHOLE SOCIAL STRUCTURE THEN WALKED BY A CLIFF FACE AND READ OUT THEIR ENTIRE GEOLOGICAL RECORD TO GIVE THEIR WHOLE BIOLOGICAL ORIGIN STORY THEN WERE LIKE 'BUT THATS JUST MY THEORY". ALSO SUPER GENIUS MUCISIAN TOBY FOX!?
