This book made me think. Terry Pratchett wrote a great book for the adult and the child in us.

Might be a spoiler alert not sure:

This book made me think of Ray Bradbury stories. This is the story of our world with multiple possibilities and what that would mean. It's fun its well written, read fantastically by the reader and it left me wanting more. It does not get caught up in superfluous love stories or salacious silliness. The story is good the characters that jump out are worth cheering for and there is a great sense of humor.

More spoiler alert:

The book is like space exploration without leaving our planet. It’s our world in different endless dimensions all folded up into an endless accordion. Humanity changes these places in some cases and fits right into them in others. But we are not the only thinking beings who change their environment. It is all food for thought and a great story. I will not comment on the plot just the basic premise.
