It's definitely not the first thing that would come to mind if my cat died. :lol:

As there's a very interesting review on Long Earth in June's Discworld Monthly, I'm going to give my opinion on it too. :dance:

Having read it twice now, I'd just like to say that I think it is brilliant, because not only could I relate to it, but also it really made me think. 8-)
However, I have a feeling that some people might not be so impressed. :(

The only criticism I have is, I wish it could have been 10 pages shorter. 8-)

I withdraw the above comment, because I've just realised something about the book. :dance:
