2045-2059. After the cataclysmic upheavals of Step Day and the Yellowstone eruption humanity is spreading further into the Long Earth, and society, on a battered Datum Earth and beyond, continues to evolve. Now an elderly and cantankerous AI, Lobsang lives in disguise with Agnes in an exotic, far-distant world. He's convinced they're leading a normal life in New Springfield - they even adopt a child - but it seems they have been guided there for a reason. As rumours of strange sightings and hauntings proliferate, it becomes clear that something is very awry with this particular world. Millions of steps away, Joshua is on a personal journey of discovery: learning about the father he never knew and a secret family history. But then he receives a summons from New Springfield. Lobsang understands the enormity of what's taking place beneath the surface of his earth--a threat to all the worlds of the Long Earth.

I don't know why the title is T"he Long Utopia"; this series is not about utopia; it is about parallel worlds.
I enjoyed the book's flashbacks and further background details.
The conclusion was some what of a let down as the antagonist species had no real dimension..
I would have liked to know more about the Next although I was left with a positive feeling that the Next reached an accomodation to protect and nurture their predecessors.
