    Another great story by Pratchett He must wake up every morning and think What should I make fun of today? And then he proceeds with mockery while sneaking in valuable social insights This book is shorter than most of his other books but it made for great audiobook listening on a four hour road trip

    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 display

    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 completel

    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

summary Only You Can Save Mankind

Only You Can Save Mankind

Xwell is about to set the new high score on the computer game Only You Can Save MankindSuddenly a messag. From School Library JournalJohnny Maxwell 12 thinks he s a loser People don t seem to notice him his parents are threatening to split up and he s not very good at the shoot up the bad guys computer games that he and his friends are always playing But after his hacker buddy Wobbler gives him an illegal copy of Only You Can Save Mankind strange things happen The captain of the alien fleet that Johnny is supposed to shoot up surrenders to him unheard of in a computer game and soon after that all of the aliens from all copies of the game have vanished Players looking for someone to shoot at sail through light years of empty space and return the game to the store demanding their money back Johnny also discovers that he is able to enter the alien ship in dreams and grows convinced that the aliens are somehow real and are actually dying when human players shoot at them And soon the day arrives when the humans can resume their shooting The story is told against the backdrop of the 1991 Gulf War in which many of the battles were fought with the help of PC screens and the antiwar message of the story soon becomes a little too heavy handed and obvious Although the storytelling here is not as polished as it is in Pratchett s The Wee Free Men HarperCollins 2003 the humor is sharp and the story is great fun to read This is the first in a trilogy published in England US editions of Johnny and the Dead and Johnny and the Bomb will soon followI read this because I so thoroughly enjoyed Terry Pratchett s book Thud This one was a bit different in flavor and felt a bit slower paced to me The video game stuff was very outdated as the book was first published many years ago and Johnny spends a little too much time wondering if the game is real before he takes action Overall though I did enjoy the book especially his interactions with SigourneyRecommended for Grade 5 8

E appearsWe wish to talk We surrenderBut the aliens aren't supposed to surrender they're supposed to die. 1st Read 45Rereadmy mother says they were creations of SatanYes but your mother says that about practically everything said WobblerThis is true said Yo less gravely It s her hobbyOh i so over invested in this one lol I rated it before from my vague memories of reading it as a kid and this time my inner child still liked it but my outer adult was SOooo into it Firstly this would make a great film espeically with all the 80s90s nostalgia around now Also while in the 90s all they had were cruise missiles to make wars look like video games the rise of drone warfare makes this far relevant todayIt was johnny himself who had my outer adult really worried though The story is so horrifying if your into it Its like johnny was in the hitler youth then when he finds out about what they do he had to take over for Schindler He really feels the weight of the responsibility and my outer adult was just like someone help that poor child lol Combined with the Troubling Times the fever his outbursts in school and kirstys the small details like his mealsclothes etc The stuff with BigMac too THAT hit my outer adult aswell probably than my inner child Plus some minor stuff about race and gender there are just so many layersThere where some small uibbles i think the first aside with the Scree Wee should have been moved we shouldn t have seen them up close before Johnnny does and there were a couple of bits that were a little heavy handed mostly about the war However i still enjoyed this WAY than i did as a child and possibly given most reviews i ve seen than i should have D Now for the love of god will someone please get that poor kid a decent meal
