Only You Can Save Mankind

Written by Terry Pratchett

Part of the Johnny Maxwell Series

Only You Can Save Mankind Synopsis

IF NOT YOU, WHO ELSE? As the mighty alien fleet from the latest computer game thunders across the screen, Johnny prepares to blow them into the usual million pieces. And they send him a message: We surrender. They're not supposed to do that! They're supposed to die. And computer joysticks don't have 'Don't Fire' buttons . . . But it's only a game, isn't it. Isn't it? The first book in the Johnny Maxwell trilogy.

Only You Can Save Mankind Press Reviews

An impressively original book with its thrills and spills, its inventiveness, its wit and continuous readability * Daily Telegraph * A wonderful new Pratchett-style fantasy: funny and thrilling enough for anyone who can read fluently * Daily Mail * Funny and exciting * Spectator * Terry Pratchett's funny, fast-moving story makes provocative reading for all computer game players . . . Makes a serious point out of a ridiculously comic example * Children's Books of the Year * Everyone should read Terry Pratchett. Maybe it should be part of the National Curriculum? * Families *
