Free read Only You Can Save Mankind

Utton Johnny Maxwell is about to set the new high score on the computer game Only You Can Save MankindSuddenly. This book was how Terry Pratchett dealt with the first gulf war I think I wish I had read it when I was a kid and images of that war were broadcast over my TV screen interrupting my favorite television shows and occupying the conversation of adults The main character in the book Johnny cared a bit than I did but felt basically the same these images carried no meaning as bland and removed from life as an old out of date video game There s one hugely funny bit where Johnny defines sexism for the ScreeWee Captain It just means you should treat people as people and you know not just assume girls can t do stuff We got a talk about it at school There s lots of stuff girls can t do but you ve got to pretend they can so that of them will That s all of it really Presumably there s uh stuff boy s can t do Oh yeah But that s just girls stuff said Johnny

Only You Can Save Mankind

A message appearsWe wish to talk We surrenderBut the aliens aren't supposed to surrender they're supposed to di. 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

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
