Just started The Long Earth, by Pratchett and Baxter. Didn't enjoy the first 20 pages, but at 100 in I'm quite enjoying it.

I enjoyed that series for its speculation on the different possible worlds from ours, but in the end I was not impressed by the plot, characters, softer scifi elements, writing, &c. I stuck with it anyway, for the ideas about different worlds, and those parts keep getting better with each book as they venture further on the Long Earth.

I'm eagerly awaiting the fourth installment. It's not got the humour of the Discworld series but once you get your head around the initial stepping concept it's a decent read.
