Only You Can Save Mankind

E appearsWe wish to talk We surrenderBut the aliens aren't supposed to surrender they're supposed to die. Okay I give this book a 3sort of I like Sir Terry s writing He s sharp and can generally make a sharp uip with a dull point This book isn t uite so goodOh there are some laughs and the plot while not totally new that the world inside games is real in it s own way is a good one It opens with a cute idea The young man playing a new computer game is busy fighting his way through the enemy alien fleet he s made it to the huge mother shipand they surrender He gets text on his computer from the aliens and they want to surrender HummYes good idea and as I said some good humorBut not as much as I would usually expect Sir Terry gets a bit heavy handed in this one with his political commentary Apparently he s among the individuals who believe electronic violence at least somewhat euates to real violence That s cool A lot of people feel that way I didn t however come to this novel to be informed convinced or indoctrinated I came for the story and the humorTo each their own I suppose I m sure many of you will like it better than I As noted there are a few good laughs The cometary however isn t all that great Will it influence the young people who read thisthese books to throw away their violent computervideo games Who knows3 stars and just that I d almost say 25 stars Okay but far from Sir Terry s bestHowever I do wish him the best

READ & DOWNLOAD Only You Can Save Mankind

It's just a game isn't itThe alien spaceship is in his sights His finger is on the Fire button Johnny Ma. So this is Terry Pratchett outside of DiscworldIt was ok but I think it was a short story stretched into a book The big theme of war being real and not a game was a bit preachy but maybe that s because it s aimed at the YA audienceThen the author touches on universal problems faced by kids everywhere parents on the verge of a break up trying to fit in with the other kids surviving in the inner city etc But since these are not the main story he never goes anywhere with themI wasn t entirely riveted by the main story either It starts well with the aliens surrendering but it was too slow after that for me

    Another great story by Pratchett He must wake up every morning and think What should I make fun of today?

    I'd never read this series before but I picked up the second and third at library sales a few years back and in preparing for a month of reading I came across them on the shelves and thought it was time The Johnny Maxwell series is solid middle grade SF with a touch of typically Pratchett esue humor In this book Johnny is playing a

    While Pratchett's main productions are Fantasy he occasionally tinkered in the scifi genre This is the first part of a trilogy based around a weird kid called Johnny MaxwellThe book is fun and uite cheeky and still has the common Pratchett approach of turning things on their head to make you see things differently In this case he completely reverses the basic concepts of an Alien shooter computer game starting with the
