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

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

Only You Can Save MankindRe many interesting things in this book format Unknown Binding and o. 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 video game that involves slaughtering invading aliens when his screen displays the message that the aliens want to surrender They're tired of dying when a player dies of course he returns again and again but the aliens are permanently destroyed when they're shot and want Johnny to give them safe conduct back to their own world Johnny at first reasonably disbelieving comes to realize it's true though is it really or is he simply retreating from a world in which his parents fight all the time and school is a nightmareThe book is fairly slight but I've come to appreciate that Pratchett in his later books The Colour of Magic came out in 1983 and this one was first published in 1992 and reissued in the early 2000s so it's not that much later but still never missed an opportunity to drop serious moments in between the jokes Johnny's home life is a disaster with his parents so focused on their own fighting that they neglect him; his friend Yo less's mother a nurse and the parents of his would be friend KirstySigourney who is a hoot seem to be the only ones who notice that Johnny is suffering He's an ordinary kid for the most part but the aliens make the point that he is the only one of all the people playing the game who responded to their plea And the uestion of what is reality comes up repeatedly from Johnny wondering if the human players he kills in defending the aliens suffer to Johnny and Sigourney altering the alien ship through their desires because it's all in their headsor is itIt's a uick read and I enjoyed it enough to move on to the next immediately
