I loved the premise of this book--"stepping" into other worlds--and it reminded me a little of Amber in that magical way. I enjoyed the humor of the Lobsang character, the exploration of the ramifications of seemingly infinite Earths, and though I thought I would have had enough by the end of this novel--it has its wince-worthy corny pieces and skims over some character development--I have to say that as I return this one to the library, I am considering picking up the others in the series at some point in time.

This really dragged for me. Rather than a novel, it reads as a string of vignettes the authors wrote to think about the universe, i.e., zero compelling plot. 50% through the book the plot is still very shaky, without any real engine of conflict. We have a prickly, unlikeable hero in the form of Joshua, a smug and not quite trustworthy dynamic character in the form of Lobsang, and a half ominous/half entertaining mystery in the group of ape-like hominids who
..."step" through worlds, and appear to be dangerous when provoked. Without any real dramatic engine, or reason to keep reading, I have to admit that I'm bored to tears.MoreLess

Great read, quantum thinking. Defiantly will be reading the other books in the series, thanks for the read.

Terry Pratchett as usual does not disappoint. I'll likely be reading the rest of the series too, although not defiantly.
