About the Author
Terry Pratchett is one of the most popular authors writing today. He lives behind a keyboard in Wiltshire and says he 'doesn't want to get a life, because it feels as though he's trying to lead three already'. He was appointed OBE in 1998. He is the author of the phenomenally successful Discworld series and his trilogy for young readers, The Bromeliad, is scheduled to be adapted into a spectacular animated movie. His first Discworld novel for children, THE AMAZING MAURICE AND HIS EDUCATED RODENTS, was awarded the 2001 Carnegie Medal.

Like any kid, Johnny enjoys a good computer game every now and then, and his friend Wobbler supplies him with just about any pirated game he could want. He has destroyed all but the last alien ship in the game Only You Can Save Mankind when a message suddenly appears on the screen: We wish to talk. Thus begins a journey that takes him inside the game as the Chosen One, the human who will lead the alien ScreeWee race back to safety beyond The Boundary. The reptilian captain of the ScreeWee is tired of fighting; the human fighters appear out of nowhere, kill and destroy ships in her fleet, and keep coming back no matter how many times they are killed.Read more ›

About spelling problems, there are no more errors than in most ebooks. The other reviewer seems to be referring to a segment early in the first book where Johnny, who is 12, is typing and writing things like can@t.
Although I didn`t "LOVE" all of them I thorouhgly enjoyed every single one and have also
bought all but 1 or 2 of his books.
Being a avid fan, I might be biased, but cannot help it.
He has the knack to make you "recognise" his charachters in people in your own life.
He writes "human" better than any person I have come across, despite the fact that his stories are all
Don`t ever underestimate the power of his books and once you are caught in his web, there is no escaping until
you have read every single book he has ever written.
I strongly recomend this Trilogy.
Sir Terry Pratchett's humour is amazing. He never disappoints.
