Book Review: “The only thing worse than me is you”

Recently, as in, 6am, I finished this lovely book that reimagines “Much Ado About Nothing” to a US school for geniuses.

I just read “The Long Mars” the third book in the Long Earth series but I don’t think I’d written a review before. Some mild spoilers and details to follow

I thought I’d do a quick review of what I have been reading, as to motivate myself and perhaps others.
