    1 thought on “The Johnny Maxwell Trilogy”

    1. Johnny Maxwell is an interesting kid, who is possibly almost too in tune with his surroundings. As usual, T. Pratchett gives an interesting take on things that perhaps would almost be considered mundane. This is YA at it's finest, thought provoking, plenty of unexpected twists and by the end of each book, there is a good chance that you have learnt something about yourself. Well worth a look.

    2. Only You Can Save Mankind Three StarsJohnny and the Dead Three StarsJohnny and the Bomb Four StarsI loved Pratchett's The Bromeliad Trilogy when I was younger and I was really impressed by The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents and his Tiffany Aching books for Discworld. So I knew that Pratchett was more than capable of turning out some high quality ya writing. However, something about Johnny Maxwell never gelled until the third book. His extreme ordinariness and unflappability were played [...]

    3. Całkiem ciekawy zbiór opowiadań o Johnnym Maxwellu, którego spotykają dość nadnaturalne przygody. Opowiadania te może nie są aż tak błyskotliwe jak te ze świata dysku czy trylogii nomów, jednakże pomimo tego czyta się je całkiem przyjemnie. Pratchett opisując ludzi i zdarzenia jak zwykle robi to w pewien ironiczny, ale zarazem ciepły sposób. Błyskotliwość w wychwytywaniu pewnych absurdalnych zależności wraz z wcześniej wspomnianym ciepłem tworzy kolejny ciekawy zbiór, [...]

    4. ONLY YOU CAN SAVE MANKINDThe Johnny Maxwell books are fantastic childrens stories and even manage to be entertaining for adults. This, the first in the trilogy, introduces us to Johnny and a world of video gaming that accidentally interferes with an alien invasion. Great fun!JOHNNY AND THE DEADIt's funny that so many copiers have emerged since this was first published, coming up with the idea of someone who can communicate with the dead and tries to help them, from The Sixth Sense and Ghost Whis [...]

    5. This was my second reading of the trilogy, first read in my early teens. I'm still quite happy with it, though the book is clearly written for a younger audience than Discworld fans might expect. Pratchett's style still lends a familiar warmth to these much more contemporary works, but they also yield much darker sub-plots too.Throughout the series, we find a young boy whose knack for escapism serves as a contrast to issues at home, charmingly called "Trying Times". The third book, Johnny and th [...]

    6. This is an out-of-print and hard-to-find trilogy by Terry Pratchet, one of his rare forays outside the Discworld. If you're a fan of Discworld you'll be disconcerted as I was to be reading familiar Pratchett prose set in the "real" world, one with television and public transportation and teenage boys who are not also trolls.The books were, I believe, intended for a young adult audience, so of course I liked them. They get better as they go along, too. By the third one I was definitely getting th [...]

    7. Johnny, a young teen, is an ordinary boy who experiences the extraordinary. In the first book "Only You Save Mankind," he dreams his way into a video game where he has to save a race of aliens from total destruction. The second book "Johnny and The Dead" he communicates with the nonliving-they prefer not to be called ghosts. The third book "Johnny and the Bomb" is time travel romp. His friends: Wobbler, an overweight computer nerd; Bigmac, an asthmatic skinhead and math genius; Yo-less, an uncoo [...]

    8. Let's be honest here: these are teenage sci-fi books. They arent meant to be deconstructed or thought over. That said, I still find this series to be hilarious. Being a little bit older gives you the perspective to appreciate some of the humor in a new light. This series is easy to read on a lazy afternoon or at the beach. The main criticisms I would have are that the "morals" are a bit to preachy and obvious, and some of the British humor might not translate to American readers. It can also see [...]

    9. The first book in the trilogy was kind of slow and I had to work to get through it. The premise is sound, but somehow it just didn't grab me. Only my love for all things Terry Pratchett made me move on to book #2. And my loyalty was not disappointed. Books #2 and #3 were far better in my opinion, but they were made more enjoyable because I met most of the main characters in #1. There is something different in each book and I am glad I persevered.

    10. These books are so wonderful. They're extremely funny (without being as crazy as the Discworld novels), philosophical, thoughtful, exciting and lovely and the four kids (five, if you count Kirsty) are a wonderful example of friendship and interesting characters. I can only rec this series to anyone who likes Pratchett and/or humorous fantasy/science-fiction. Despite being targeted for younger readers, I found them very enjoyable.

    11. I read this one because my daughter had introduced me to Good Omens, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Wanting to read more of Terry Pratchett, I looked on my Dad's shelves and found Going Postal and this book. Out of the three, this was my least favorite, but I still enjoyed it. Easy read, not too much detail to weigh it down, some pretty interesting situations; overall a pretty good read.

    12. This book was boring, hard to understand and very strange.Terry Pratchett's first chapter in the first book was muddled and confusing and made the rest harder to understand. I gave up trying in chapter 2. Though, as I read I didnt Want to put it down, but I wanted to know what he was on about?

    13. To pierwsza książka Terry'ego Pratchetta, jaką przeczytałam. Trzy długie opowiadania powiązane kilkoma bohaterami jak dla osoby dopiero stykającą się z twórczością tego autora są średnie. Jednak nie można zarzucić im, że są nudne i wloką się.

    14. Just the regular Terry Pratchett goodness. I think there's a bit of Good Omens in here with the gang of kids.

    15. It's hilarious, maybe a little young for my age group but with adult themes and jokes. The whole concept of this book is bizzare, but bizzare in an utterly readable, laugh out loud kind of way. Also, I love the ScreeWee.

    16. These are a great read. They're not quite junk food for the brain (you have to think a little bit too much for that), but they are easy to digest and the messages in each book are clear. Johnny Maxwell is a great little anti-hero. He's not a bad boy, he just really wants to be normal.

    17. I read these books to my son. He enjoyed them, and I like them, especially Johnny and the Dead. I did not enjoy these books as much as the Discworld series, and I definitely think they are aimed at a younger audience than I fall into.

    18. The same characters as 'Only You Can Save Mankind'. Johnny can talk to the dead who are frightened by plans that their graveyard will be demolished to make way for an office block.

    19. I love Pratchett's brand of humor, and I particularly enjoyed Johnny's unflappable character in the face of absurdity.
