Read the first paragraph or so of the review before the spoiler notice and it seems quite positive. :D

I did the same. I steer well clear of spoilers or previews etc. I want the book as a fresh experience when I read it. ;)

This spoiler free article in The Independent is about how Terry and Stephen met and came to collaborate on Long Earth.

How We Met. :D

Very interesting article - I'm wildly interested to see they're as good at collaborating as Terry and Neil were :D
